Transportation...Students Riding Busses

Welcome Back!  The 2016-17 school year has begun and we would like to wish you and your students a successful year.

The Transportation Department has worked diligently this summer to provide a safe environment for all our students with training for all drivers and aides.  It is our goal to provide a quality service to the community. We have established high standards of training, maintenance and conduct for each employee and we will provide the safest environment possible for each student in our care and strive to maintain our schedule of services.

Just a reminder to all parents/guardians – the buses could be running up to 20 minutes behind schedule during the first days of schools as the drivers are learning their new routes and new students.  We ask that you please have patience before calling the department with concerns regarding your student arriving home during these first few days.

Chromebook 1:1 Initiative

Imagine walking into a classroom where students are learning, responding and submitting class assignments all from a technology device.  Today’s technology allows students to learn in different ways; ways that will help them be better students. Camp Ernst Middle is excited to take the next step in preparing our students for their futures.

 

Today we deployed our 1:1 initiative with Chromebooks.  Every student at CEMS has been assigned a Chromebook they will keep for their time at the school. Chromebooks will stay at school and students will be attending all classes with them. Students will be responsible for the care and placement in carts for charging at the end of the school day. The Chromebook they receive will be the Chromebook they keep while at CEMS for as long as they attend CEMS.
