Dear Center School Families, I hope this message finds you and your family healthy and safe. This is not my ideal way of communicating the following message to you, but due to the current circumstances we are in I felt this was my best option. I wanted to inform you I recently accepted a Superintendent position for the 2020-2021 school year with Staunton CUSD #6. . I have felt truly blessed to be a part of a culture and community that has allowed me to share my knowledge of education with students and help lead them to excellence. I have met amazing people while serving the Center Schools and will always be grateful our paths have crossed. I will miss my students and staff! I want you to know I will give you nothing less than my personal best for the remainder of this school year and will continue to serve you and your students as I have always done until my time has ended here on June 30th. I hope to see our students sooner than later. We miss them! Until we meet again, stay safe. Sincerely, Cindy Tolbert Principal

Dear Center School Families, As Mr. Sutton recently sent out in his last communication, the Governor of Illinois has extended the closure of all schools until Wednesday, April 8, 2020. He has also enacted a “stay at home order” in the State of Illinois encouraging all families to stay inside with the exception of the need for groceries, gas, and pharmaceutical needs. As Mr. Sutton said we all need to remain calm and follow guidelines for social distancing in order to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. Our teachers will continue to engage students academically during this shutdown, so please continue to check Google Classroom, email, and other websites for continued instructions. The district will continue to send out messages through our messaging system as well as our district website as new information comes in. We ask students to continue to do the best that they can and don't hesitate to email teachers or myself with questions. These are unprecedented times, but we are all together with the goal of caring for students. We are going to stay positive and make the best of a difficult situation. Please take the next couple of weeks and relax, stay healthy, get some fresh air and enjoy the break. I want to thank you, parents, for your continuous support. I'm so proud of all of our kids for working so hard during this shutdown. To Our Students …. I can’t emphasize strongly enough, PLEASE DON’T WASTE THIS MOMENT. You are in the middle of a historical event that people will talk about for years to come. This situation has the ability to give you an education that school could never adequately simulate. Hopefully, you will examine and develop an enduring appreciation for our societies interdependence, a real grasp of the relationship between personal responsibility and personal freedom, and an actual experience with how to be truly still. Continue to read a book, do art, play music and work on your learning packets. Your teachers will continue to provide resources for all of your classes that will help you stay on top of instructional material, but we highly encourage you to take time to learn about things that interest YOU!! You have a world of knowledge at your fingertips; take time to explore new topics and ideas. On behalf of all Alhambra and Grantfork staff please know we love you guys and we want what is best for you. We miss you and hope to see you soon! Sincerely, Cindy Tolbert, Principal

Dear Center School Parents, By now you probably have heard that schools are closing to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. Our students’ learning is a second only to their health and safety. The faculty and staff are doing their best to pull together some key activities to help our students keep their skills sharp while out of school. Our teachers will send home learning materials/packets today. If you are unable to access the online work sent home, just work through the packet of work that does not require technology with your student. We ask you to do the best you can. Students should return the completed packets as well as any books sent home with them when returning to school. Please have your student reading. Teachers will be available for questions via email. If your student was not in attendance today, you may pick up their materials tomorrow in the school offices between 11-3. This is a critical time in our school year for our students’ development. Please help us prevent any backslide by making sure they continue practicing their skills. We are looking forward to having our students back in the buildings as soon as we are able. Mrs. Cindy Tolbert, Principal Alhambra Primary and Grantfork Elementary
