Religious Holidays: We recognize and want to support CFS families and staff who observe various religious holidays. Teachers do their best to accommodate students who miss school for such occasions.

Inclement weather: In the case of bad weather, we support parental decisions to pick up early/keep your child at home. Road conditions vary widely in our area.
