The Goonies Middle School Drive-In Movie Night - October 3rd - Please RSVP
After careful consideration for the well being of the CFA community, we have decided to cancel the Fall Festival this year. While we are saddened to cancel this beloved event, we are excited to announce that CFA and the Family Partnership will be co-hosting three divisional Drive-In Movie nights in the parking lot adjacent to the Athletic Center. Audio will play directly in your car radio through FM transmission. The movies begin at 7:30 pm (the parking lot opens at 6:45 pm). Parking will be on a first come, first served basis, but we ask if you plan to drive a larger vehicle that you park in the back half of the lot to help with sightlines. There is no cost to attend, but we ask that families reserve a parking spot for the event here as parking space is limited. You must RSVP prior to 12:00 pm on the day of the event. We will not allow guests without a reservation to attend. All guests will remain inside of their vehicles for the duration of the event. We encourage you to pack your own snacks and beverages. Restrooms will be available for use in the Athletic Center. Limit is 1 person away from the vehicle at a time (exceptions for parent/guardian accompanying anyone needing assistance). If you are attending the event with individuals not in your immediate family, you will be required to wear a mask for the duration of the event. You can read through all the event Rules & Guidelines here. Inclement Weather: Heavy rain, wind or lightning will cause cancellation of the movie. Light rain is not a cause for cancellation.
