Meriwether Families~

We are moving into a busy time of year as we look toward the end of the year. Students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade will be taking the Smarter Balance Assessment.  Please watch for information coming home and talk with your child about giving it their best!

We will have no school May 27th and May 30th in observance of Memorial Day.

Students are enjoying more time outside as the weather moves toward nicer and warmer days. Please ensure that they are dressed appropriately.  Students should be wearing closed toe shoes, wider strapped tank tops (not spaghetti straps), and clothing that “covers the rectangles”.  If you have questions about the CPSD dress code please visit the website:

It has been such a pleasure to see the celebrations on campus as we celebrated the Military Child during the month of April.  We are so excited to have you on this journey with us!

Some questions you may have:

Someone in the household is being COVID tested – should I send my child(ren) to school?  The safest answer is no – when someone is being tested in the house – the household should quarantine to ensure that everyone is healthy enough to be around others.

How do I enroll my student – it is all online enrollment at this time.  If you have new neighbors who have moved in – remind them to enrollment is online.  Families with children who will be 5 by August 31st – registration is open online for your soon to be kindergartener to register. Be well – take care of each other.

What will school look like?  Wearing of a mask is optional for staff and students.  At this time, we are not having family members come into the building. Our start time for arrival and breakfast is 8:15 and then learning begins at 8:30, and the end of the day is 3:00 PM. Please make sure Skyward has a correct phone/email address and you have your voice box set up with the number so if you miss the call you still are able to get the information.

What if we are moving?  Call Mrs. Klas at 253-583-5200 and let her know when your students last day learning will occur and we will unenroll – remember to bring back all checked-out items including technology.  The school you will be enrolling in can email/fax request for records as all documents can be done digitally for the student/family.

Thank you for partnering with us to help your child reach their full potential!
