Cherryvale Elementary School is a school where staff and students Believe, Serve, Lead, and Achieve! On Wednesday, August 2 from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m Cherryvale Elementary School will hold Jump Start Camp –  Meet the Teacher and Orientation.

Chromebooks will be distributed to students during the first two weeks of student attendance.  Student uniforms at Cherryvale Elementary School will not be mandatory for the 2023-2024 school year due to the school uniform shortage from the various vendors. On the first day of school, each student will be issued one clear backpack to use. 

Breakfast is from 6:50 a.m. until 7:20 a.m. In order to participate, students must arrive before 7:15 a.m. Breakfast and lunch are free for all students.

Drop-off/pick-up procedures for students who are car riders will remain the same when we return for the 2023-2024 school year. During morning hours, parents must drop off car riders at the front entrance of the building. During afternoon hours, they must pick up students at the back of the building. The school building opens daily at 6:50 a.m. to welcome students.

Cherryvale Elementary School is a Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) school and an Arts in Basic Curriculum (ABC) school. Parents and students will receive more information regarding these initiatives at the parent orientation. Components of these initiatives will be embedded into the core curriculum. Administrators, teachers, and staff invite families, stakeholders, and community members to visit the school and invest in our future—invest in our students!

The administration and the staff of Cherryvale Elementary School are looking forward to building and maintaining relationships with our students and families, so that together we can ensure that all of our Falcons are soaring HIGH and reaching their full potential!
