CES afterschool activities are canceled due to the tornado watch. However, the timing was not great, and we do not want to disrupt our normal dismissal for safety purposes.

Parents, we have made the difficult decision to send home students due to no power and what appears to be no imminent restoration. Leonidas will remain open. Buses will start picking up students at 8:30AM and taking them home. Walkers may leave as normal. Parent pickup should be done using the usual processes and at the locations at each building. If you have specific student questions, please reach out via email to CES: rcrotser@colonsschools.org CHS: nmcclish@colonschools.org
