ATHLETICS & ACTIVITIES
New School Hours
For the 2023-2024 academic year, Cleveland City Schools will be implementing new school hours. Middle and high school students will attend classes from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., while elementary school students will have classes from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Our Open House will take place on Thursday, August 3rd from 4:00 to 7:30 p.m. at Cleveland Middle School. This will give families the opportunity to complete the registration process and prepare for the new academic year. We will have optional parent meetings at 5:00, 6:00, and 7:00 p.m.
To help your child prepare for the first day of school, specific school supply lists can be found on our website. These lists will ensure your child is well-prepared and ready to embrace the exciting challenges that await them in the classroom.
Cleveland City Schools will have two reconnection days during the first week of school. On Monday, August 7, students with last names beginning A-K will attend a full day of school. On Tuesday, August 8, students with last names beginning L-Z will also attend a full day. Then, on Wednesday, August 9th, we expect all students to be present for their classes. This will provide an opportunity for students to reconnect with their peers and teachers after the break.
For those who have registered their child for transportation services, you will receive a notification about their bus number, stop, and pick-up time approximately one week before classes commence, provided they are eligible for bus transportation. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our transportation department at 423-472-9576.
We encourage all our families to use PowerSchool, a powerful tool that allows you to access essential information about your child's schedules, grades, and attendance. Class placements for students at Arnold Memorial Elementary School will be mailed out on Monday, July 17th.
We are excited to announce that all students will receive breakfast and lunch free of charge, ensuring they have the nourishment they need for a productive day of learning.
Lastly, we want to remind parents that students arriving after 7:30 AM will be considered tardy and must be checked in by our office staff. Punctuality is essential for a smooth start to the school day and to make the most of every learning opportunity.
We are looking forward to an exceptional school year at Cleveland Middle School! If you have any further questions or need assistance, please feel free to reach out to us. Together, we will make this academic year a rewarding and successful one for our students.
Thank you for your support, and we can't wait to see you all on the first day of school!
