Emerald Key News: During the first week of remote learning, the students in Emerald Key met with Mr. Eric Hinterman from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to talk about different types of careers.
He shared much information about his team’s research, Mars 2020. It is a Mars rover mission by NASA’s Mars Exploration Program that includes the Perseverance rover and the Ingenuity helicopter drone.
It was launched on 30 July 2020 at 11:50 UTC, and will touch down in Jezero crater on Mars on 18 February 2021. The Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover, which looks for life on Mars.
An incredibly massive thank you to everyone who participated in the canned food drive this year!
We raised 1,613 total items! These items have helped us to restock our student food pantry here at the middle school as well as to help out the Lodi Family Center keep their shelves full for members of our community who are struggling.
An extra shoutout to Austin S. #Clover Squad for donating a large portion of these items! Thank you everyone for your generosity and have a wonderful weekend and upcoming holiday season.

Hello CMS families! This post is being shared because we will be transitioning from face-to-face instruction to virtual instruction starting on Monday. The reason for the transition is that our county has moved to level-3 Red with a high incident rate.
Understanding the stress and inconvenience this may causing families, I want to provide some information that may help with your families adjustment to the virtual environment.
Unlike last spring, CMS will be running a building-wide schedule I have provided the schedule for you below.
Understanding that moving to virtual instruction may occur, our teachers have invested a great deal of time and energy to prepare for the best experience possible. Grade-level teams have talked with students, shared schedules/expectations, and shared out specific team information on their team websites that I have included below.
Attendance during virtual instruction is still required of all students. We understand that attendance in a face-to-face environment is much different than in the virtual environment. So, to provide some clarity- “Attending” in a virtual environment will require students to be logged in Google Meet and present for all instructional windows. That includes each morning from 8:55 AM-11:15 AM. and 11:45 AM-1:25 PM. the afternoon windows include small group times that students will be scheduled in by their teachers.
If a child is sick or has a doctors/dentist appointment that will cause them to not attend any or all of the instruction times listed above, parents must call our attendance line (330-302-0205) just like they would in a fact-to-face setting. This would be recorded as an excused absence and teachers will be made aware that the student will not be in attendance that day.
A student’s Failure to attend any of the assigned instructional windows will result in an UNEXCUSED absence. The school is required, by State Law, to monitor attendance and follow the same attendance procedures we would follow in a face-to-face setting. I only bring this up to be proactive and to eliminate confusion on the issue. Thank you in advance for supporting the school’s attendance policy.
As always, if you have questions do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher(s).
This is just a message to inform students and parents that the end of the first quarter is this Friday, November 6th. Students, please review your Progress Book accounts to make sure all of your work for the first quarter has been submitted. If you are missing work, you will need to communicate with your teacher(s) to make a plan to submit work by the end of the quarter.
