Wednesday School/Extra Help/Tutoring
Students that are failing 2 or more classes are required to stay the normal time on early release days.  Students can work on missing assignments; make up work, extra studying.  If they are assigned a Study Table it is mandatory.  Failure to show, or make arrangements, will result in disciplinary action.   Our numbers have been dropping since we have implemented the Study Tables program.   

Wednesday Early Release
We will dismiss at 1:25pm.  Please make arrangements for picking up your student.  Students will not be allowed to be in the building after 1:35pm.

Lunch Prices
Lunch prices for the 2009-2010 school year will be as follows: Plate lunch - $2.50; Basket lunch - $3.00. If needed, Free/Reduced Lunch forms are available in the CMS office.

The new EZPay system is now being utilized in the lunch lines.  Your student has an ID number in place as of 1/30/09.

Student Absences
If a student is absent, please call the school at 746-3227 before 10:00 am to report the absence. When the student returns to school, he or she has two school days to turn in either a parent note or doctor’s note giving a reason for the absence. In order for the absence to be excused, this note must be turned in to the attendance office (regardless of whether or not a call to school was made).

If a student has a doctor’s appointment, please bring a doctor’s note in to excuse the absence.

Medicine at School
Students are not allowed to possess medicine (even over –the-counter varieties) while on school property. All medicine must be turned to the office by a parent with a doctor’s note describing its use.  Failure to comply with this rule may result in disciplinary action.

Cellular Phones
Students are not allowed to use or have cellular phones at school during the hours of 7:25-2:10. If a student is found to have a cell phone on during school hours, the phone will be held in the office until a parent is able to come to the school and retrieve the phone.

Student Drop-Off/Pick-Up
We will continue our new drop off procedure.  Parents will enter in the east parking lot and proceed down the new access road.  Drop offs will turn left to the designated area.  Please remember that students are NOT to be dropped off in front of the school (Fairview) until after 7:30am. 

Progress Book
Parents – Progress Book is a great way to keep up with how your son or daughter is doing at school. Please be sure to visit Progress Book to view your child’s daily assignments and grades. Our teachers are making every effort to post assignments daily and update grades at least weekly.

Study Tables
We will have extra help on Tuesday and Thursday from 2:30-3:30.  This will be additional tutoring for your student.  Teachers or Parents can assign.  This is not an act of discipline.  Study Tables are for students who need extra help in subject they are struggling with at school.
