Arrival & Dismissal Meetings

The CES students safety and communication with parents is very important to all of us.  When you speak to your child's teacher, I want you to have their undivided attention. Morning arrival and afternoon dismissal is a difficult time for the teacher to be able to devote themselves to discussing your needs and concerns. Student supervision is their main goal during those times.
