October 26-30 is Red Ribbon Week. On Monday, wear Red to show that we are Red-y to say NO to drugs. Tuesday, wear boots to give drugs the boot. Wednesday, wear any type of hat because it’s hats off to being drug free. Thursday, we are teaming up against drugs—-wear favorite team shirt. Friday, wear crazy hair because we are wild about being drug free.
REMINDER: CECC school day starts at 7:45 a.m. Please remember your child must have a mask on to enter into the building.
Car Drop Off and Pick Up INFORMATION FOR 1ST DAY AND BEYOND Drop-Off 7:00-7:40 a.m. School Starts at 7:45 a.m. Dismissal 3:00 p.m. *On the 1st day of school, parents will not be allowed to get out of their car and walk their child to the door or into the building. Teachers will be outside waiting to welcome the students in their classes. Please be patient as this is not the norm for our 1st day procedures. We are trying to ensure safety for students, teachers and parents. After the 1st day, staff will be at the parent drop off sign to open car doors for students. We have staff in place to make sure students get to the right place. We will only have 1 line so please watch staff (in case they ask you to pull up). Dismissal - We will have 2 lanes for dismissal. Parents will not be allowed to walk up to gym doors to pick up students. Parents will need to pick up students in the car line. Please have your student’s name card visible so the process will go faster. *B.B. Brown will be ONE way going north to south from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. every school day. This means you will not be able to turn on to B.B. Brown from Cadet Way if you are picking up your child from school.
CECC Procedures for Changing Type of Instruction Parents/guardians were given the option to choose remote learning or in-person learning when completing registration. If a parent/guardian, who chose Virtual/Remote Instruction, wants their student to switch to On-Campus Instruction, they may do so by 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 2nd. Connally ISD will start in-person Instruction on September 8th. After September 8th and the rest of the 2020-2021 school year, parents/guardians will need to come to the office to complete a form to make changes to their child’s type of instruction. Connally ISD is permitted, by the TEA, to limit these transactions to occur only at the end of a grading period. Please call the CECC office 254-750-7160 if you have any questions!
