Fundraiser Extended to Sept. 26

CHE Families,

We are extending Otis Spunkmeyer and Innisbrook fundraiser until September 26. As of now, the PTA can no longer fund PE or Meet the Master in the 2015 - 2016 school year unless we raise the necessary funding. Each year the PTA works hard to keep these programs as the district does not pay for them. Please help by supporting these fundraisers.

Thank you,



Dear CUSD Families,

All CUSD Schools and the District Office are experiencing difficulties with our phones. We wanted to notify each of you that AT&T, our service provider, is on site and working to resolve the issue. All of our sites and the District Office still have internet capability as well as the ability communicate internally in case of an emergency. All sites also have access to emergency radios and access to School Messenger (our mass broadcasting system). We will keep you apprised of the situation and update you as more information materializes. Thank you for your patience in this matter.
