Dear CES Families,

During the winter months we try very hard to get students outside for recess.  Indoor recess will be called when the temperature/wind chill factor is 21º F or less, and when rain, snow or ground conditions warrant it.  Children with snow pants, jackets, and boots may play in the snow.  Children without boots will be required to play on the blacktop or sidewalk.  We ask that you send your child in with clothing, such as gloves, that he or she can put on independently.  Many of our little ones get upset when they can’t get their gloves on and some gloves are even difficult to get on with adult assistance.  Since we have 25 minutes of recess, we try hard to help children get their winter gear on when they are struggling so that they can start playing right away.

Monday, January 17th is Martin Luther King Jr. day and we will not be in school.  We hope you enjoy the nice long weekend!

Every Friday will be CES Spirit days.  We encourage our Cardinals to wear red and white.  Spirit wear shirts can be purchased through the CES PTO.  We are excited to show our Cardinal pride.

For information about policies, schedules, and events at CES, please see our website at www.colchesterct.org.  Our handbook is available online for your reference. The Digital Backpack is a weekly communication from our schools to parents and guardians via an emailed link. If you prefer a paper copy or do not have Internet access, you may fill out a form in our main office to update your distribution preference.   

Our office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We encourage you to contact us at any time during these hours if you need assistance with anything related to this packet for the upcoming school year.

We are looking forward to an exciting year of growth and learning!
