Dear Tiger Families, Due to a Spectrum fiber outage, many of our schools are currently experiencing disruption of service to phones, internet, email, and Wi-Fi. Spectrum does not have an estimated time of repair at this time. If you need help, you can call the Central Administrative Office at 335-1867. Please note: Phones ARE working at Cape Central Middle School, Terry W. Kitchen Central Junior High, and Cape Central Academy. We apologize for any inconvenience the outages caused at our other buildings. Thank you for your time and continued support of Cape Girardeau Public Schools. -CGPS
