MBS Reopening Plan Additional Resources as of July 24, 2020

MBS Family,

As we mentioned yesterday in our communication, we have revised our 2020-2021 school reopening plan. The modified plan is now available on our website and includes significant changes to our instructional offerings and operations.

After reviewing this plan and determining what's best for your family, we ask that you let us know by the end of day on Wednesday, July 29, if you are interested in enrolling your student(s) in the full-time virtual option. You can do that at this link.


We will continue to study and revise our plan as necessary. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.



Dicky Barlow​, Ed. D.

Chief Sponsorship Campaign

The Chief Sponsorship campaign is underway, and we thank you for supporting our school! You should have received letters in the mail this week, but for those who would like to participate and make your contribution online, here is the link: https://www.chiefpto.com/store


These funds allow our unwavering and committed administration and teachers to support our children in so many ways! We would love all CBS families to participate at any level. We know that this year is going to throw many twists and turns, but CBS relies on the support of our generous parents to not only ensure the most cutting edge materials for our students, but also to support annual school operating costs. If ever there was a time to support our schools, this is going to be the year. Let's all join together and make this year as great as we can for our children!

Sportswear is Available for Purchase

Whether you’ve chosen traditional or virtual school this year, you’ll need the new line of Cherokee Bend Sportswear to help support and represent the school we love! Simply click the link below to access the online store! If you’re interested in an alternate color of an item, make sure to click on the item and check for options. You can have the ordered items shipped to the school for distribution, or directly to your home for a small fee this year! Please contact Mitchell Walters (patricia.mitchell.walters@gmail.com) or Lacey Russell (lerussell410@yahoo.com) with any questions! Happy shopping!



We are fortunate to be able to use a digital means for parents to upload funds into their lunch account at any time. PayPams now has an app! Click HERE for more information. A new menu is sent home each month and will be posted to the CBS webpage. Prices for the 2020-2021 school year have been outlined where families can easily see costs of individual items.


The CBS cafeteria will only be accepting online payments (PayPams) or check payments for this year. The rational is to reduce the spread of germs so please stay ahead and keep your account(s) loaded.

The Bend's PTO would like to say thank YOU to...
