CEE COVID RESPONSE: The staff at CEE did an amazing job! The principal, Ms. Cochran, and teachers acted quickly, efficiently, and professionally. Staff prepared both weekly contents for website learning in addition to pick up paper packets for those that did not have internet. All core subjects were covered. A 1x week Zoom (complete with fun activities) or phone call were available so students could feel connected. Teachers answered calls and/or emails quickly if any questions or concerns arise. Very Grateful for all that this school did during unprecedented times.
