Hello Colt Families,
I wanted to first and foremost thank you for your patience and support during these trying times.
I also hope you have all had a good week.
This evening we are asking that you please log into our website to review and sign the waiver that our Trust has provided to all schools in order to mitigate liability for Continental during this pandemic. We understand that you may have many questions and we will be available to answer any questions you may have regarding this waiver or questions regarding the reopening of school in general. For this purpose, we will be hosting a virtual zoom meeting on Thursday, August 27 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Join Zoom Meeting at
A link to this meeting will be on our website as well. All information is under the Return to School 2020-2021 Tab.
COVID-19 Update August 24, 2020
Good Evening Colt Families,
I would like to thank those of you who filled out Waiver forms as we start to finalize our reopening of school plans. As a second option, we are asking that our parents please consider signing the Parental Acknowledgement and Disclosure forms. Again, our District Trust/Insurance company is advising that school districts do their due diligence to obtain signed Waivers or Acknowledgement forms in order to reduce mitigation in our district. These signed waivers will help us to ensure that all stakeholders are doing their part in following the COVID-19 health and safety procedures that are in place in our COOP (Continuity of Operations Plan) that is on our website. Together we can ensure a safe and healthy return to school. If you have any questions or concerns about the Waiver/Acknowledgement forms or reopening of school in general please join our Zoom Mtg. on Thursday August 27, 2020, at 4:40 p.m.
Thank you all in advance for your continued support and cooperation in helping us get back to school as soon as possible.

School Closure/Reopening due to COVID-19, we will update parents regularly via Website, robocalls, and the District’s Facebook page.
During these difficult and uncertain times, we will also continue to strive to create diverse, culturally competent educators and staff who will provide the necessary services for students to overcome the trauma of COVID-19 and the racial inequities that have surfaced in the last months. We will be mindful of the social and emotional needs of our students, staff, parents, and community as a whole.
Our continued priority will be to ensure that our students feel safe, valued, and supported in our school. We will stick together and continue to be the cohesive Continental Colt family that we are. BETTER TOGETHER!
A variety of resources are available to help support students, staff, families, and the community during this unprecedented time. Below, you will find direct numbers for specific lines of support within the Continental Elementary School District as well as resources for staying informed, in good health and in good spirits.
