Principal's Message

    Greetings Cougar Family,

    A new year is a time to be thankful of our blessings and to declare our goals for the upcoming year. Moreover, it is a time for new beginnings. I say this as we are in the process of welcoming many students back to campus who last year worked remotely.

    We are eager to welcome you back to our building for 100% face-to-face learning this school year. Our first welcome back-to-school event is our 6th Grade Orientation taking place on Monday, August 16th, 2021, from 10:00 AM until 12:30 PM in the cafeteria.

    As we transition into this new year, come prepared on Wednesday, August 18th for your first day of learning. Our first bell rings at 9:25 A.M. Parents and students, we are back in uniforms for the 2021-22 school year. Please see our home web page for more information.

    Safety is our priority:

    · A distance of three feet will be maintained between students in classrooms when possible.

    · Daily cleaning of high frequency touch points is routine with weekly disinfection.

    · Frequent hand washing will be reinforced.

    · Students and staff are expected to stay home if they are sick.

    Parents don’t forget to log on and complete all Back-to-School Forms. Completing these forms before our first day of school is easy. Simply just log on to our website: www.browardschools.com/crystallake and choose: Back to School Forms on the left-hand side of our website. The process begins here, and the system will walk you through each step in order to ensure that your child is accurately reflected in our school’s database.

    General supplies for your first week of school works for us. This means a book bag, your mask, pens, pencils, and paper will work for now. Your assigned teachers will give you more information on week one. You may either bring your lunch or apply for free/reduced lunch through our District’s Portal https://www.myschoolapps.com/ .

    Bus Riders don’t forget to check your Virtual Counselor Account for your bus assignment on 8/16/21. Student schedules can also be found through your Virtual Counselor account beginning on 8/16.

    We cannot wait to begin this school year with you! See you soon.

    Your principal,

    Earnest Toliver
