Supervision

  • Morning supervision will begin on the school grounds at 8:50 AM Monday to Friday.
  • Lunchtime supervision is provided by hired lunch supervisors for students in our paid lunchroom program.  Students going home for lunch should return to school when the afternoon instruction is to begin.
  • There is no after school supervision provided after the 3:35 PM bell.

Teacher supervision is provided in the morning and at recess around the school grounds. Teachers do their best to "sweep" the grounds when the bell has rung to ensure all students make their way inside.  After school, students who have not connected with caregivers by 3:40 PM are to come to the office.

​Contact Information Updates

Please notify the school office immediately with any changes of address, telephone numbers (home, business and/or cell), email address or emergency contact numbers. It is critical that we have a current record of contact information on file so we can reach you or other emergency contacts. Please also be sure to provide us with a current copy of any custody agreements.​​

Concerns & Complaints

We know that the success of your student is dependent on a strong partnership between families and the CBE. If you have a concern, it can usually be addressed at the classroom level. Your first step is to arrange to speak privately with your child’s teacher. If you feel your issue is still unresolved, please contact your principal. If you and the school are unable to find a resolution, please see our Concerns & Complaints​ page for additional information, including the process to contact your Area Director. ​​​​
