2021 Fall Preschool Screening
Reminder: We will be holding registration on August 4th from 10-12 AM and August 5th from 4-6 PM. We will be asking parents to complete a NEWLY revised registration packet to gather a little more information for the start of the year. If you are unable to attend registration, we can make arrangements to send the packet home with your child when school starts. Thank you for your understanding.
The CCSD #426 Board of Education will hold a Special Board Meeting on August 4th at 6:00PM at Cornell Grade School. Visitors who wish to speak at the board meeting should arrive at 5:45PM to sign up to speak.
Summer school starts on August 2nd. Kindergarten students in group A will attend from 9-10:15 and kindergarten students in group B will attend from 10:30-11:45. 3rd and 4th grade students will attend from 9:00-11:00.
Research shows that face to face learning is more valuable than online learning. We do understand that some students may have health issues requiring access to remote learning. Please contact Cornell Grade School by August 6th if your child will need remote instruction for the 21-22 school year. A doctor's note will be required. In addition, any medications given at school require doctor's authorization. This includes over the counter medications. Forms will be available at registration on August 4th and 5th.
Registration for new students and students who have not turned in their registration packets will be at school on August 4th from 10-12 AM and August 5th from 4-6 PM.
A special meeting of the Cornell Board of Education District #426 will be held at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, August 4th at Cornell Grade School.
