Dear CUSD Family,

Due to the ongoing heat advisory in our county, I continue to monitor the temperature. With temperatures reaching their max in the afternoon (after 1PM), I am declaring Tuesday, October 24th to be a Minimum Day. This means that all students should report to school at their regular time, but the day will end for all schools at 12:30 PM.  For those who need lunch, sack lunches will be available for purchase/pick-up in the lunch area at dismissal.

The Governing Board allows the Superintendent to make this declaration based upon the knowledge that many of the CUSD classrooms are not air-conditioned and occasionally suffer from extreme and unhealthy temperatures. Heat Release events apply to the student schedule; faculty and staff are expected to ensure a safe dismissal and can then leave for the day or as directed by their immediate supervisor.

My decision of a Heat Release Day hinges on information provided by reputable forecasts consisting of a temperature or heat index of 90 degrees or higher. A Heat Release event will be declared before 7:00 PM for the following day so that families may prepare.

Again, we will experience high heat tomorrow, so I am declaring Tuesday, October 24th to be a Minimum Day. This means that all students should report to school at their regular time, but the day will end for all schools at 12:30 PM. For those who need lunch, sack lunches will be available for purchase/pick-up in the lunch area at dismissal.

 

Respectfully,

Karl Mueller

Superintendent
