Cleveland Middle School Goes To Modified Schedule For Dec. 7-11

Friday, December 4, 2020

As a result of staffing issues related to COVID-19, Cleveland Middle School will continue with at home learning for all middle school students for the week of Dec. 7-11. However, in an effort to connect with all students in a face-to-face setting, CMS will be open for a one-day traditional, in-person experience for 25 percent of its students starting on Tuesday, Dec. 8. CMS staff will continue to provide at-home learning instruction each day online, and provide a one-day, in-person experience.

The schedule for students to attend in-person learning is as follows. 

Monday, Dec. 7: All students will remain in at-home learning (no students in the building)

Tuesday, Dec. 8: Students with family last name beginning with A-D attend in person and the remaining students will continue at-home learning 

Wednesday, Dec. 9: Students with family last name beginning with E-L attend in person and the remaining students will continue at-home learning

Thursday, Dec. 10: Students with family last name beginning with M-Q attend in person and the remaining students will continue at-home learning

Friday, Dec. 11: Students with family last name beginning with R-Z attend in person and the remaining students will continue at-home learning

CMS students wishing to receive meals (breakfast and lunch) on these days may do so in the bus circle at CMS from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Students who are unable to digitally connect for the week of Dec. 7-11 may pick up an instructional packet from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in the bus circle.

Students attending in person will follow a regular breakfast and lunch schedule at the school.

Buses will run a regular schedule on Tuesday-Friday, Dec. 8-11, for students who attend the traditional, in-person school day.

Students will return to in-person learning on Monday, Dec. 14. Please know that we are taking this action to protect the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. Cleveland High School and all elementary schools will remain on their in-person traditional schedule, pending any changes. All after-school activities will continue as planned unless notified by the school.
