IT’S DANCE DAY!!!

IT’S DANCE DAY!!!

Columbiana Middle School is anxiously preparing for its Back-to-School Dance and would like to share the new student pick-up procedure that utilizes our extended parking lot for more efficiency and safety.  Please read the following information carefully and help us with this effort.

  1. Students will be released from the dance beginning at approximately 4:50pm.

  2. All students will be picked up in front of the school (no pick-up on the bus canopy).

  3. The pick-up lines will run in the reverse direction of the daily afternoon carline pick-up (see map).

  4. Vehicles will be directed to enter at the second parking lot entrance where lines will quickly form into two lines.

  5. The two lines will continue through the parking lot and students will load along the white line in front of the school.

  6. Please follow all markers/cones and directions of the supervising adults.  do not direct your student to load at any location other that our designated area.

  7. Students will load only on the whistle; do not direct your student to load at any location other that our designated area.

Again, we ask for your patience with our new procedure.  Please be prompt in picking up your student and ask them to be diligent in watching for your vehicle.

Open House Reminder

Don’t forget Tuesday’s October 13th Open House tomorrow at 6:15pm!  Columbiana Middle School and Elvin Hill Elementary School are coordinating their Open Houses for the same date to allow families to complete both visits in one evening.  For CMS, Open House begins in the gym for introductions and a brief summary of the evening.  Grade levels will then break out and a mini bell schedule will ring to allow parents to visit individual classrooms and teachers.  Please ask your student for the name and subject of his or her first period class! Hope to see you at both schools!

PARADE Day!

This Friday(10/16) is the SCHS Homecoming Parade. The Express Check-out forms (2 parts) went home on Friday. In order for a student to be checked out in the Express Checkout line at 12:30 pm, the student must have part 2 and the person picking up your student must have part 1 of the blue form that came home Friday. The person picking up your student through the Express Checkout line does not have to be on the student’Parade Clip Arts checkout list, as long as they have the Blue Form part 1 and the form is signed by you, the parent. If you do not have the Express Checkout form, you must come in the office and follow regular check-out procedures.

Any checkout prior to 12:30 pm for the parade will be marked as unexcused.

Although this is a great community event and participation is encouraged, it is not mandatory. If a student does not check out for this event, the school day will end at normal time and transportation will run accordingly.
