Principal's Letter

Dear Cunniff Families,

On Monday your child will bring home a packet containing several sign-off forms that require parent/guardian signatures.  These documents are the WPS Technology and Internet Acceptable Use Agreement, Permission for Student Publication on the Internet, and Acknowledgement that you have read the WPS Handbook with your child/ren.  I am asking that all families take some time to complete this process during the next week and to return the sign-off sheets by Friday, September 27.

The Cunniff Handbook has gone through a few revisions during the summer and it is posted on the HomePage of the Cunniff website.  Please take some time to read through it with your child/ren. I hope that this handbook will help to familiarize you with the practices and procedures of the District and of Cunniff.  Your support in following these guidelines will help us to implement our values and support our goals.  

Instrumental lessons and chorus begin this week.  Fourth grade lessons begin on Tuesday at 8:00 AM.  Students will meet the music teachers in the music room.  For this first lesson, students should not bring their instruments. Fifth grade lessons begin on Tuesday at 8:45 AM.  Students should bring their instruments, a music stand, and their Essential Elements book.  They will meet in the music room.

Junior Chorus for grades two and three begins this Monday at 8:00 AM in the music room.  Students should arrive at 7:50 AM.  Please contact Ms. Slesinger at for more information.  There is still time to sign up for fourth/fifth grade chorus which meets on Wednesdays at 8:00 AM in the music room.  Please contact Mr. Saraydarian: if you have any questions.

The bus lane located at the front of Cunniff on Warren Street can no longer be blocked and used for parking.  Additionally, a reminder that the parking lot is reserved for faculty and staff from 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM.  Thank you for following these parking protocols.  

Looking ahead, Our Back to School Night is Thursday evening from 6:00-8:00 PM.  Please see the attached flyer for additional details.


A reminder that Wednesday, September 25 is an early-release day with a 12:15 dismissal.  Lunch will be served and there is Extended Day.

Kind regards,

Mena Ciarlone, Principal
