Cross of Hope Elementary School (COHES)

 The process for an abbreviated or canceled school day, usually due to weather conditions, is as follows:

Please watch the news or listen to the radio.  We will follow whatever APS does as a district (not just their mountain schools, but all schools).  If they cancel school, then so will we.  If APS goes to a 2 hour delay, then so will we.  School will begin at 10am,and the boys and girls need to bring a lunch (it’s too late for us to order meals).  If the 2 hour delay is on a FRIDAY, then we still start at 10am, BUT we will be done at 3:15pm (not 12:00pm).  We will have some of our specials, but probably not all of them, and yes, the students will need to bring their lunches.  Safety is always a priority; please keep that in mind as you are making your decisions about coming to school.  If you do decide to keep your child(ren) at home, please give us a call and let us know; they can get their homework the next school day.

For current month's calendar of events, just look at the calendar below.  And take a minute to check out the Mighty Knights Gazette also below.
