We've listened to your feedback and want to make sure that all parents/guardians picking up students at CES each afternoon understand the car rider guidelines. Please click the link below for a graphic explaining the flow of traffic and placement of pick up lines: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1I7sRgN8u_uZ0-7f7dhZoV_tqvl_pam-CSljAf83YgcQ/edit?usp=sharing
Attention Activity Bus Riders (those CES students who ride the bus to the Hutson Center to be picked up) Just a few notes to help with afternoon pick-up: - Regular car rider numbers and activity bus rider tags are DIFFERENT. If your student does both, you will need both sets of tags. - If your student is going to be an activity bus rider, please visit the office at Cherokee Elementary School to get a tag (these have student NAMES on them, not numbers). You may call 257-3118 if you have any questions. -All tags for activity bus riders need to be placed on the DRIVER'S SIDE of your vehicle for pick up. Thank you!
Trunk or Treat is ON!! It will be happening in front of HHS but will be moved to the parking lot. There will be a designated entrance and exit to the trunks.
