The last few days we have seen a large increase in the number of car riders in the morning coming to school.  The increase has been from 35-40 cars to over 90 cars.  If you choose to bring your child to school they must arrive by 7:10 A.M. to avoid being tardy.  The school has no control over the traffic or the weather conditions on any given day.  We are not allowed to give an excuse for being tardy if you are a car rider unless it is an excuse approved by The State Department of Education.  CCSS provides bus service to all students.  Thank you for your help with this issue.
Progress Reports will be issued Friday, December 3rd.
Yearbooks will be on sale for $25.00 on Wednesday, December 8th – Friday, December 10th.  Orders must be placed before school ONLY in the cafeteria.
