Crosby Update

Posted on: August 27, 2021

It has been a great start to the school year and the students and staff are especially grateful for the air conditioning this week! We are excited to have some of our landscaping planted and are looking forward to having grass planted in mid-September. The rubber surface for the playground is set to arrive next week! It takes two day for installation and two days to cure, so students will hopefully be able to use it the following week! Also, thank you for being patient with us as we worked out our new arrival and drop-off procedures. Not only is everything new this year, but we now have over 700 students to get to and from school. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or ideas to better our school, please don't hesitate to reach out!

SAFETY (Goal #1)


Thank you for being cautious and keeping your child home when they are not feeling well. We appreciate you helping to control any possible spread in our school.

Also, a reminder that if a family member is being tested, please keep all family members home until a negative test result is confirmed.

If you need to report a COVID case or quarantine, please contact Bethany Mc Bee at 513-728-8526 or at



To call in a student absence call 513-738-1717 and when prompted press 2 to leave a message.



If you need to change the way your child gets home afterschool, please contact your child’s teacher with the information if you are aware of the change before the start of the school day.

If the change occurs within the current school day, call the office at 513-738-1717.




Students in grades K-2 will be AIMSweb testing (reading skills) the week of August 30th to collect benchmark data. This data will be used to guide teachers’ instruction and create Response to Intervention (RTI) groups.

Students in grades 1-5 will be MAP testing the week of September 13th to collect benchmark data on their students in both math and reading. This data will also be used to guide teachers’ instruction and create RTI groups.


RTI is a system to address students’ individual academic needs. Once data is collected, students are grouped and provided with the skills needed to either fill in gaps or to enrich their educational experience. If you have any questions regarding RTI, your classroom teacher can provide you with specific details.
