Dear CES Families,

I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful summer! I am so proud of all that CES has accomplished and look forward with excitement to an awesome year! A few things that may be helpful for you to know as we begin the 2019-2020 school year:


We welcome the following staff members who are experienced professionals taking on new positions:

Mrs. Terri McLaury-Childcare/Preschool Director, Mrs. Peggy Randolph-Associate Preschool Teacher, Mrs. Kelly Rentschler—Second Grade Teacher.


Students at CES can enjoy free breakfast anytime from 7:30 a.m. to 7:55 a.m. Students also have the option to take a grab-and-go breakfast as a snack if they have already eaten breakfast at home. Please do not drop off children before 7:30 a.m. as there is no adult supervision available until 7:30 a.m. Keeping children safe is our priority!


Lunch costs $2.65 daily, which includes milk. If you pack your child’s lunch they can purchase milk ONLY for 50 cents. Please consider filling out a free or reduced lunch application even if you are unsure that you will qualify. If your child qualifies, it helps your family and it also helps our school! This information is kept confidential. Students and classmates are not identified in any way by how they pay for their lunch.


We look forward to connecting with you!
