February 19th - No School in observance of President's Day
February 20th - Cap & Gown Picture Day
February 23rd - Pajama Day!
February 26th - No School for Teacher In-Service
Each night our custodians are working hard to ensure they are sanitizing classrooms thoroughly. Additionally, our school nurses, Mrs. Gravatt & Ms. Harper are going to make the rounds to all the classrooms over the next few days to talk with students about the importance of covering sneezes and coughs as well as washing hands thoroughly. If you are able, donations of disinfectant wipes, tissues, and hand sanitizer would be greatly appreciated by our teachers.
One of the best ways to help us fight the spread of germs and viruses is by knowing when to keep your child home from school if they are ill. Often times, students are still contagious even though the symptoms have appeared to pass. Please use the check list below to determine whether or not your child should attend school if they are feeling under the weather.
Unlike the fall pictures you will not order your picture package prior to picture day. Instead, a package of pictures will be sent home with your child and you can choose as many pictures from the package as you would like, return them remaining pictures along with your payment. Additionally, you can order more pictures or even keepsake items with your child’s picture online at Lifetouch. More information will be sent home soon!Your child will be dressed in a cap & gown for their pictures. It is best to wear a plain shirt with or without a collar. Since students are in gowns you will not be able to see any fancy shirts or dresses beneath. Please be sure to style hair so that it is flat to the head. Mohawks, high ponytails, big bows, and barrettes at the top of the head make it difficult to secure the cap to your child’s head for the picture. We ask that you keep ponytails low to the back of the head. If your child is absent on picture day we will have retakes on Tuesday, February 27th.
2017-2018 CR SCHOOL BELL SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED
The State of Delaware is experiencing a severe bus driver shortage
and the Caesar Rodney School District is taking proactive steps to keep our buses running.
With the alignment of bell times for both the secondary and elementary schools,
we have dramatically increased our efficiency as each bus can service both sets of schools.
Double runs means fewer drivers are needed and cuts transportation costs as well.
Furthermore, the bell time alignment allows for more middle school students
to attend high school classes for distance learning experiences.
The change was made out of necessity - primarily due to bus routes being refused
or dropped by our bus contractors and their inability of finding bus drivers.
After a community committee studied the issue, a decision was made to change start
times so that we were still able to provide transportation services to our families.
Early Dismissal Times are TBA. Please share. Thank you.
6:00 PM PLC Meeting at District Office
