Message for Middle School Parents and Students from Mrs. Keyser: Good morning, Since we have early dismissal on Friday, we are going to have a picnic outside for our lunch. If you order the tray from the cafeteria, you will still receive the grilled cheese, sun chips, fruit and other goodies along with a carton of milk. Your lunchroom supervisors will have these for you as you go out the 5th/6th grade doors by Mrs. Dryden/Mr. Edwards' rooms and 7th/8th grade doors by Mr. Princko's room. We can use the tents and other outdoor spaces and you may bring your own INDIVIDUAL towel or small blanket if you wish to do so. If you bring a lunch box from home, you will just take that outside with you. Our lunch times will be a little different in that we will have 5th/6th grade eat from 11:20-11:45 and 7th/8th grade will eat from 11:45-12:05. I think this will be a fun alternative to eating inside and hope the weather cooperates for us! Please let me know if you have any questions. Mrs. Stacy Keyser, Ed.S. Cumberland Middle School Principal and Athletic Director

Cumberland Elementary and Middle School Birthday Celebrations We are looking for donations to help pay for our monthly birthday celebrations for the 2021-2022 school year. Last year was the first year that the elementary school switched to having school-wide celebrations and they went over so well that the middle school is joining us this year. Having days set aside for school-wide celebrations allows all students to celebrate their birthdays equally and teachers are able to set aside time once a month for the celebrations rather than multiple times for individual parties. If you would like to make a contribution and help sponsor the birthday celebrations, it would be greatly appreciated. It costs between $300-$400 each month for cupcakes or cookies that are purchased at local businesses. This year we will be creating a list of donors to publish along with a few pictures of the celebrations each month. Donations will be pooled together to sponsor the entire year rather than once a month donations like we did last year. If individuals or businesses would like to donate, please send a check to Cumberland Elementary and Middle School, 1496 IL Rt 121, Toledo, Illinois 62468. No donation will be too small. Anonymous donations will be kept anonymous and if you would like a receipt for tax purposes, please let us know. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please call 217-923-3132 or email us at dhuffman@cumberland.k12.il.us or skeyser@cumberland.k12.il.us. We appreciate your continued support for our school. You will be helping our students feel so special on their special day! Thank you, Daniel Huffman Elementary Principal Stacy Keyser Middle School Principal

From Robinson about tomorrow's (4/1) Middle School Girls basketball game: We are allowing each opposing player to have 2 guests to come and watch them play. When they check in, they will have to give the name of the player they are there to watch. We will put marks next to that player's name and that is all that will be admitted for them. We ask that opposing fans go to the east bleachers (farthest from where they enter). They will be sitting across from their team's bench. We will also stream the games at nmsraiders.yolasite.com.

To All IESA Member Schools: In my 32 years of tenure here at the IESA I do not think I have ever experienced anything that has been as controversial as the mandate we received from the IDPH that face coverings must be worn by fans and spectators at both indoor and outdoor events. With our baseball and softball seasons underway, the face covering mandate has been met with a backlash that has become legendary. Much of the problem for you the schools has been the conflicting guidance given by the state of Illinois. We were given the mandate by IDPH. We shared with you that masks had to be worn by fans and spectators at all times outdoors and yet ISBE and DCEO put out a document called the All Sports Policy that said that masks did not have to be worn by fans and spectators when they were outside and they could maintain a safe social distance (pg. 8 of the document) https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/sfc/servlet.shepherd/document/download/069t000000CyCndAAF?operationContext=S1 Over the last several weeks, Craig Anderson, the Executive Director of the IHSA, and I have emailed and texted numerous times to the Deputy Governor, ISBE, IDPH and others asking for clarification and answers as to why the two documents are different. We have explained how unfair it is to you the schools to have information that is completely opposite. Despite numerous attempts to get a response, we heard nothing on this issue. However, yesterday we finally received an email response. Basically, we were told that schools should follow the guidance given by DCEO. We were told that the DCEO guidance is the "floor" and that organizations like IESA and IHSA can be more stringent. IESA has no intention of making things more stringent. Given the All Sports Policy is co-branded by ISBE and DCEO and given that on pg. 8 of that document it states that fans and spectators do not need to wear masks when outdoors and able to maintain safe social distance, my recommendation to all IESA member schools is that you follow the guidance given in this document. Of course you have the responsibility to insure your fans and spectators are maintaining safe social distance but as long as they are, then the document gives you the guidance you need regarding face coverings at outdoor events. In addition, you also have the responsibility to ensure your players and coaches are following the guidelines that have previously been sent. I am sorry for the confusion we all have experienced and the time it has taken to sort this out for you. I wish we could have received answers sooner to alleviate the confusion. We are updating all of the information we have on our website to reflect this information we finally received. Please contact me if you have any questions. Steve Endsley Executive Director

Cumberland Middle School Parents and Students: Here are a few more details as we approach our return to school in a few short hours: 1. Our day begins at 8:05 am in the middle school this year. 2. If you have your own chromebook/laptop at home and don't wish to use one of our chromebooks to take back and forth, that is fine. Please just let your teacher know this. If this plan changes for you and your family, please notify your homeroom teacher. 3. During this first week, onsite students only need to worry about the two days they will be on campus. They will not have assignments on "blue group" days if they are in the gold group or on "gold group" days if they are in the blue group. Teachers may assign some activities for all gold and blue group students to complete on Friday, August 21, but that communication will come from your child's teacher to them and to parents as we all navigate through this first week. It will be important that you (parents/guardians) and your child are checking your email frequently throughout the next days and weeks. Please talk to your child A LOT this week about what and how they are doing things. 4. Remote only learners: Information and chromebook pick up will be on Friday, August 21 during the school day at the High School Ag shop large overhead doors. Your learning will begin on Monday, August 24. You will receive a lot of information from your teachers in how to complete these activities. 5. Parents: Please remain patient and flexible with all of the new things that are going on. We are all going to be doing our best, learning along the way, and will take great pride in providing the best education possible for your child! Please email or call us with any questions or concerns! 6. Have a great 2020-2021 school year, Raiders!

Cumberland Middle School Parents and Students: If your child is a BLUE group student, he/she will attend for the first time on Monday, August 17. If your child is a GOLD group student, he/she will wait to begin their learning until their first day of attendance on Wednesday, August 19. You don’t need to do anything else on those first two days of school in which the blue group will be onsite. The school day begins at 8 AM and your child should report to his or her homeroom class. There will be no recess before school this year. If your child is a REMOTE ONLY student, you should have received an email about device pick up on Friday, August 21 and information about your child’s school activities beginning on Monday, August 24. Onsite students: Bring only the necessities with you to school. Please don’t bring toys, electronic games, and other items that could get lost or damaged. Cell phones and other electronics will not be allowed at recess and may not be on a person during instructional times. Cell phones must be off or on silent mode and will be kept in backpacks during the school day. Students will need a backpack. You will bring everything with you to school and home again (including a chrome book) every single day. You will NOT use lockers. Wear tennis shoes so you can participate in PE. If you choose, you may bring a water bottle for water only and a towel to use outside during mask breaks so you don’t have to sit in the grass. Please self-certify your students prior to them coming to school each day and don’t forget your mask! We look forward to learning with you this year!
