I hope you are enjoying summer and this finds you healthy and happy. We are excited to see our students on the first day of school – August 9, 2021. I wanted to send an update to our 7th and 8th grade families so you can begin planning for the 21-22 school year.
First, our Back to School Day is scheduled for August 3, 2021. Traditionally, this is when our 7th and 8th grade students receive their schedules, locate classrooms, and try their lockers. While these activities will continue to take place on August 3, we are also adding ChromeBook deployment to the list of activities at Back to School Day as all CCSD students will receive a ChromeBook for both at home and in school use. Due to this addition, Back to School Day will be all day, and we will limit the number of families on campus to 50 (over 500 7th & 8th grade families have already signed up – great job!). To reserve a time for Back to School Day (including evening times for those unable to take off work during the day) please click here:
In addition, to alleviate long lines, we ask that you honor the times selected and that you immediately write down your date and time so you can remember. Furthermore, we ask that you come to Mannion with the “Agreement for Use of Mobile Device” completed. Make sure all signatures – for parents and students – are on the form (highlighted for your convenience). To print the form, please click here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Wq91nqNhIY-iRGZ9cq4pEZmOqzPuvBST/view?usp=sharing
A few reminders about Back to School Day:
- Due to the limited number of volunteers and priority placed on ChromeBook deployment, we will not be selling PE Uniforms at Back to School Day. PE uniforms may be purchased the first week of school during PE class.
- We realize that 7th grade students have no experience opening lockers. Fortunately, our 6th Grade Orientation Leaders (8th grade students) will be on campus to assist students with lockers. In addition, we put together a brief instructional video to alleviate student anxiety about lockers: https://youtu.be/yrVjroS6UtQ
- For those wishing to take advantage of summer sales, the school supply list is posted on our website . Students will receive a free Mannion case to protect the ChromeBook when walking from class to class, but this case will easily fit in any backpack for transport to and from school. To access the school supply list, please look at our website – parents – school supply list.
- Transportation information is available for the 21-22 school year on the CCSD website. It requires your student identification number (available in campus portal) and the student’s date of birth to access. To see your student’s route information, please use this link: https://transportation.ccsd.net/student/session/21_22
