CMS: 2-Hour Late Start and Modified Schedule for 2/28 and 3/1

Dear Parents,

We cancelled school today because when I checked classrooms early this morning, the building was about 40 degrees. We needed the day to plan an alternate schedule and to procure space heaters for classrooms. The second pump should be here on Friday, so hopefully things will be back to normal next week. Thank you for your understanding and support.

We are planning on having school tomorrow. We will run a 2-hour late start, but the gym, which is on a separate heating unit, will be open at 7:50 for students who arrive early. Breakfast will be served at 8:00 and we will keep the kids in the gym until the other students arrive. At 10:00, we will break students up into their instructional groups, send them to their lockers to get their supplies and classes will begin. The rest of the day will be a modified block and students will be concentrated into three classrooms per grade level so that we can focus our heat there. Below is the bell schedule that we will follow. Unless something changes, we will plan on running this schedule on Thursday and Friday.

8:00-10:00 - Gym open for students who arrive to school early
10:00-11:25 - Block 1
11:30-12:30 - Lunch (whole school)
12:35 - 1:50 - Block 2
1:55 - 3:15 - Block 3

Of course you have the option of keeping your child home if you don’t feel comfortable sending them to school with the current plan in place. I will excuse those absences, but your students will miss instruction. We only have five days until the end of the quarter and we want to make sure that our students have every opportunity to finish the quarter strong.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 432-0708 or by email at

Thank you,
