Thank you for working through our first week with the changes in afternoon dismissal and pick-up procedures.  We appreciate your patience as we fine-tune the process to make is as efficient as possible, without sacrificing student safety.

Other than our one snow day, we’ve had another busy week here at Cornish as students…
