In hopeful anticipation of the Governor's guidance for schools becoming advisory instead of mandatory and liability insurance updates passing during the short legislative session, the District worked with Umatilla County Health last week on opening plans. Now that the legislature has passed liability protections for schools and the Governor has revised her guidance to advisory, we are approved to begin Limited In Person Instruction January 19th for those who already registered. Soon after, we expect to expand LIPI to additional students and/or transition into our Hybrid learning plan. All plans will follow the Ready Schools, Safe Learners requirements. We are excited to welcome students back to school soon! Parents who registered for LIPI will receive updated guidance the week of January 4th with more specific information.

Reminder: No School or Meal Deliveries Friday, November 20th, Wednesday, November 25th, Thursday, November 26th or Friday, November 27th .
In observance of Veteran's Day November 11th, school will not be in session. To keep students from falling behind, we will run an "A" schedule Friday, November 13th. Meaning, CBMS students will attend periods 1-4, just as they normally do on Mondays and Wednesdays.
We have confirmed with the Oregon Department of Education that the Governor's announcement today does not impact schools. We will continue with our current operations, and continue to work toward LIPI and hybrid options as the metrics allow.

Students, do you ever wonder how much we miss you? Well, Mr. Gebers still does bus duty, just in case you happen to pull in. Yes, we all miss you THIS much. Only Gebers wears flip-flops with socks though. Stay safe, Vikings, we love you! https://youtu.be/57bQMMKPNaE
CBMS Parent/Teacher conferences will be held virtually November 16-19th via Google Meets. We encourage you and your student to schedule a conference with their teachers to discuss their academic progress and strategies for success in Term 2. Please email teachers to schedule a conference, OR simply select an available appointment on the teacher's Google classroom calendar page. We look forward to visiting with both of you!
