Welcome to Clarenceville Middle School!

 

 

April 13 is PSAT Day for All 8th Graders

 

  • By law, we are still required to administer our state standardized testing.

  • Therefore, on Tuesday April 13, all of our 8th graders-- including CVA students-- are scheduled to come to CMS to take the PSAT (6th and 7th graders will stay home that day). 

  • Arrival time for school will not change, but the 8th graders will be dismissed earlier than usual.

  • 8th graders that are taking a test with standard time (the vast majority) will be dismissed at 12:05 pm.

  • 8th graders that are taking an accommodated test that requires extended time will be dismissed at 1:30 pm.  We will contact the families that this affects.

  • Snacks will be provided to students to enjoy during their scheduled breaks.

  • A grab-and-go lunch will be provided for students to take with them when they are dismissed.

  • We have Student Guides for preparing for the PSAT available in our main office.

Black History Month Door Competition

 

  • Our Hybrid/Remote students decorated the doors to their first hour classes to highlight what they had been learning for Black History Month.

  • The whole community was able to vote for their favorites in three categories:  Most Creative, Most Informative, and Prettiest.

  • And the winners are...

    • "Most Creative" = Mrs. Piontek's class

    • "Most Informative/Most Interesting" = Mr. Queentry's class

    • "Most Aesthetically Pleasing/Prettiest" = Ms. Alsheskie's class

  • Thank you to everyone that participated!  All of the entries were awesome, and everyone learned a ton along the way!

At-Home Covid-19 Symptom Screening

 

  • As part of our In-Person Learning Plan, we ask families to do two things to screen your students and keep them, their peers, and the staff safe and healthy:

    1. Turn in a signed "Covid-19 School Health Screening Acknowledgement Form" to our main office by February 26.

      • This only needs to be done once.

      • Hard copies are available in our main office.

    2. Screen your students each morning prior to in-person days, using the questions on this "Staff and Student At-Home Screening Checklist for Schools"

      • If your student responds "yes" to any of the questions, please keep them home and contact our main office.

      • You do NOT need to print this form or turn it in.  This form is just for your reference.

 


 

Drop-Off/Pick-Up Procedures

 

  • When dropping off or picking up your students, we ask that you always:

    • Use the drop-off/pick-up loop on the southern-most end of the building (click here for map).

    • Do NOT use the parking lot... it is not safe to do so.

    • Pull forward along the sidewalk as far as you can to keep traffic from backing up onto Middlebelt Rd.

  • Thank you to everyone that has been following these procedures.  We appreciate you keeping everyone safe!

Hybrid/Remote Safety Precautions

 

  • Hybrid model = half of the Remote/Hybrid students attend each day, resulting in there only being a maximum of 16 students in any classroom

  • 6 ft physical distancing in the classrooms and cafeteria

  • all staff and students must wear masks at all times

  • grade levels eat lunch separately, limiting the number of students to about 60 in the cafeteria or gym at one time which is plenty of space to have 6 ft of physical distancing

  • every desk, including teacher desks, has a three-sided plexiglass shield

  • plexiglass shields will also be used in the cafeteria

  • one student in each bathroom at one time

  • one student leaves any classroom at one time

  • different grade levels use separate doors to enter and exit the building 

  • different grade level classrooms are in separate hallways of the building

  • every room disinfected every night

  • high-touch surfaces disinfected throughout the day

  • wipes and hand sanitizer available in every classroom
