Dear CMS Students/Parents of Students,
May 11th - 15th, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
May 14th, 10:00 - 2:00 and 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
At Cherokee Middle School:
No more than 6 students will be allowed in the library at a time. We must make the process swift and keep them moving. In and out.
As much as we would love to give our students hugs, we will still be practicing social distancing and will give virtual hugs and big smiles!
Students/parents may come on any of these dates regardless what grade they are in.
Please wipe down all returning items as best as possible with disinfectant wipes.
Students are to return:
band instruments (band students - please go to cms.roaneschools.com and go to Mr. Tillman’s webpage to see the specifics about what to return to the band room.)
Any completed work you would like to return to your teacher. (place work in a grocery bag with your name and the name of the teacher it is to go to)
pay outstanding fees, i.e. Cafeteria Charges, Lost Textbook Fees
pick up or purchase yearbooks (If you pre-ordered, it will be ready for your child to pick up. If you did not pre-order, there are some for sale for $40 until sold out.)
If your child had any medications that were kept with the school nurse, please have your child pick up what belongs to them.
retrieve any personal items or clothing from the lockers.
Pick up a copy of the materials list for next year, Out-of-District Form, and Physical Paperwork
8th grade students will receive 8th grade Certificates
Only our high school students will have a graduation, which will take place later in the summer. There will not be any honors or recognition ceremonies at CMS or any other Roane County Middle School or for any other grade levels. I realize this is disheartening to many, our students have worked very hard. Our 8th grade students will receive their 8th grade certificate, however no other awards or recognitions will take place.
Traffic Flow - Parents will use the car rider line to drop off students, then the parent will be directed to pull in the bus line, (next to the front of the school) to pick up their child in front of the band/cafeteria area.
If a parent must come into the building, please park in the bus lane on the far side of the bus lane next to the road so that you do not block the flow of the traffic.
Students will enter the outside doors to the library, drop off Chromebook, library books, textbooks, borrowed books, and athletic gear, pay cafeteria/library/lost text fees if needed, and pick up or purchase a yearbook. Students will then be directed to the locker/grade level hallway to pick up personal items, exit the end of hallway doors as if going to the cafeteria, drop off their band instrument in the band room, exit the door by band room, get in the car and leave. Not every child will need or want to get personal items or return a band instrument. Those that do not have to will exit the library and return to their car in the bus lane and leave.
