A Letter From Principal Smith

Dear parents and guardians of CECW students, 
 
These first few weeks of the 2021-2022 school year have flown by. It is almost September, and we will start to see the beginning of fall and cooler weather. I can’t wait! Fall, with the colors changing and the smell of spices, is my favorite time of the year.   

CECW staff and students have accomplished so much in these first few weeks of August. The students are learning all about CECW, getting to meet new friends and new teachers, taking assessments and doing projects, and some have even started their first college class. I am so proud of our Golden Eagle community and all they have accomplished so far, and I cannot wait to see how much they all grow this year. 

Next week, we will be sending home the CMAS reports from the state standardized tests that were taken last spring. CECW performed well overall; we outperformed our district and the state.  Way to go, Golden Eagles!  As you go over the reports with your students, please remember that our “n” or our number of students is small, so we need to read that data with our student body population in mind. The students have also been through a year and a half of COVID-19 and all the disruptions that it has caused in our classrooms and in our lives. This test is a measure at one point in time. It is not the only data that we, as educators, look at to determine next steps in a student’s education; however, it is something that we review, along with NWEA Maps, Achieve 3000, in-class assessments, homework assignments, and so much more when we plan and prepare lessons. We are proud of the effort and the growth of each and every student at CECW, and we are looking forward to watching them continue to grow this year.  

Heading into the next few months, please keep an eye on the newsletter for important dates and other information that we will be sending out to families. I’m looking forward to seeing many families out at Windsor Harvest Festival over the Labor Day weekend. 

Take care; stay healthy and safe, 
Ms. Smith

  • DIARRHEA: within the last 24 hours, not caused by food or medicine
  • VOMITING: 2 or more times in the past 24 hours
  • “FLU-LIKE” SYMPTOMS: Fever over 100 degrees with cough or sore throat. Other flu-like symptoms can include fatigue, body aches, vomiting, and diarrhea.
  • COUGHING, SEVERE: students with asthma may go to school with a written health care plan and the school is allowed to give them medicine and treatment.
  • RASH WITH FEVER: body rash without fever or behavior changes does not require staying at home; call the doctor.
  • If you child feels ill in the morning, please do not bring them later in the day.

Major COVID Symptoms must stay home:
  • Feeling feverish, chills, fever over 100.4
  • New or worsening cough – without chronic condition

KEEPING YOUR STUDENT HEALTHY
  • Wash hands before eating, after using restroom, or after using tissue.
  • Cover cough, sneeze into elbow. If tissue is used, wash hands after disposing of tissue.

Thank you for helping minimize illness in our school!
Final Reminders
Schedule Changes:
The deadline to request schedule changes has passed and all approved schedule changes have been completed. Please let us know if you have any questions about your student's schedule.

Dress Code:
CEC has created a network-wide dress code. Please view that new code here.
 
Lunch:
Parents are welcome to bring lunch to school for their student/sit down and eat with them in our cafeteria. Parents are also welcome to take students out for lunch during their lunch hour.

We ask that you do not have DoorDash, GrubHub, etc. delivered to the school for your child. Lunch hour is a busy time in the front office and we do not have staff to receive, deliver, etc. these lunches. As a reminder, we also ask that you and your student do not bring food to share. At CECW, we have students that have many different food allergies and sensitivities, and we always want to be inclusive and don't want any student to feel left out due to not being part of the shared food items.
