Watch D.O.G.S. – We are excited to announce that our Cambridge Watch D.O.G.S. are returning to our campus very soon! They do an excellent job supporting our Cambridge community with recess supervision, tutoring, mentoring, classroom support, school projects, fundraisers, along with other resources that strengthen our scholars, their families, and our staff! If you would like to join our wonderful Watch D.O.G.S., please contact our AMAZING leader, Mr. Jason Augustson at email@example.com. You can also sign up by joining the Watch D.O.G.S. page on Facebook by searching Watch D.O.G.S. at Cambridge Elementary. Who has a better Watch D.O.G.S. program than Cambridge? NOBODY!
Lost and Found Items – Please collect your child’s lost and found items by Wednesday, December 8th. This is the last day to collect all items before they will be donated. The lost and found area is located near the main office and the front of the school near the flag pole.
Building the Habit of Good Attendance – School starts each day at 8:15 a.m. Cambridge Cougar Scholars believe in arriving on time for school each day, which prepares them for a successful day of academic instruction. Students will be marked tardy each day at 8:20 a.m. Research provides detailed evidence about the importance of building good attendance habits and the effects that poor attendance habits have on future learning. There is an attached PDF article called, “Build the Habit of Good Attendance” for your consideration. Please read it at your earliest convenience.
New Student Support Specialist – Please welcome our new Student Support Specialist, Mr. Jonathon Tapia! We are excited to have him join our Cambridge family! He will help support with supervising students during recess, along with providing support to students and staff in the classroom as needed. Welcome Mr. Jonathon!
December Lunch Menu – The December lunch menu is updated on the Cambridge website and Cambridge Facebook page. Lunch menu copies are also available in the office.
Cross Walk Safety/Parking Lot Safety
Please be mindful when our Cambridge scholars are in the crosswalk crossing the street. We want to make sure everyone is arriving and leaving campus safely, so this means following all of the rules of the road and being courteous of everyone that is crossing the street. This includes not jaywalking with students. Student safety is our top priority.
In addition, please make sure students are safe while entering/exiting cars in the Cambridge parking lot. They must be with an adult at all times while walking in the parking lot. Parents, please be mindful and pull up to the curb when picking up your students. Thank you for your partnership!
Bike/Scooter Helmet Safety – The expectation for all students riding their bikes or scooters to school is that they will wear a helmet. This is the law for anyone under 18 years of age and it is a matter of student safety. Students that continue to not wear their helmet will have their bike/scooter held in the office until a parent/guardian can pick it up. Thank you in advance for considering student safety!
Health and Safety
Please continue to screen your children for symptoms of COVID-19 every day before sending them to school. No matter how minor the symptom(s), if your child has ANY, do not send them to school.
Our staff will also do wellness self-checks before coming in each day.
People with these symptoms may possibly have COVID-19, and must stay home. If symptoms start while your child is at school, we will call you to pick your child up right away.
• Fever or chills
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Muscle or body aches
• New loss of taste or smell
• Sore throat
• Congestion or runny nose
