Now all CUSD schools have digital marquee signs, like our school, making it faster and easier to share announcements with families and the community. To accommodate neighbors’ wishes, the new signs will operate from 7:30 AM to 6:30 PM Monday through Friday, and 10 AM to 4 PM on weekends.

Otherwise, as is the case for us, the signs are proving very helpful in notifying people of important dates and events at the schools so they may plan accordingly.
