Dear Carmi-White County CUSD #5 School Community:
This year has been extremely challenging, to say the least, and we are so proud of our school community. On behalf of the C-WC #5 board of education and administration, I would like to personally thank our teachers, support staff, students, parents, and community partners. We have made it through the first semester; congratulations! Our teachers, support staff, and administration have gone above and beyond to keep our schools open and provide students with the best possible educational experiences during these difficult circumstances. The students have adapted and shown tremendous resiliency, a skill that will serve them well into adulthood, and we could not be more proud. We appreciate our parents and the relationships that have been developed along with our community partners, who have stepped up and assisted us in many ways. We are blessed with a board of education who has allowed us to give students/parents educational choices and have entrusted us to make appropriate decisions.
Our C-WC #5 faculty, staff, students, parents, and community partners are the BEST. We are truly blessed to live in such a supportive community. Our Christmas break for students and staff will begin on Monday, December 21, and school will resume on Monday, January 4, 2021. Please be safe this holiday season. On behalf of the C-WC #5 administration and board of education, we wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
