CECC Parents, All campuses at Connally ISD will be closed until after Labor Day, Monday, September 6th. Breakfast and Lunch can still be picked up 7:30-8:30 a.m. on our campus at Parent Drop-Off location. Please remember instruction is from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. If you have any questions, please let your teacher know. Thanks! Misty Gerik, Principal
Breakfast will be available for pick up from 7:30-8:30 at Parent Drop Off. Please stay in your car and someone will bring it out to you.
Good afternoon! Thank you so much for your patience today with morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal. Things went a lot smoother during dismissal and we were able to get students in the cars faster. I promise it will get better every day. One reminder: For the safety of your child during morning parent drop- off, please keep your child in the car until a staff member opens the door to get your child out. Students are walking too close to the cars and it's not safe. Thank you so much for your help! Mrs. Gerik
Parents of bus riders: Please be patient with our drivers this week as they get accustomed to their afternoon bus routes. They have the very important job of making sure our students are on the right bus and get dropped off at the right location safely. Drop off times this week may be delayed due to the drivers double and triple checking information to get our students where they need to be. Our campus bus loading starts at 3:15. We are so very thankful for our bus drivers, and we appreciate your patience!
If you did not bring your child's school supplies to Meet the Teacher last night, you can drop them off at the front office today so they have less to carry tomorrow on the first day of school.
Important Information About Back to School: Meet the Teacher is on Monday, August 16th from 6:00-7:30. This will be a come and go event. Parents are encouraged to drop off school supplies with their child's teacher. The first day of school is on Wednesday, August 18th. Our campus is still closed to visitors with the exception of special occasions in order to keep our staff and students safe. Parents will not be able to enter the building on the first day of school to walk their child to their class, so make sure you get your first day of school pictures done before dropping your child off in the parent drop off line by the gym. We can't wait to welcome students back for a great school year!
REGISTRATION REMINDER: If you have not registered your child for Pre-K or Kindergarten at CECC, please complete the registration information on our website. https://www.connally.org/page/2021-2022-registration-information

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!
