CFISD Issued Technology

Parents, if your child has been issued a CFISD computer and they attend school face-to-face, the device needs to come to school daily. It should be charged and ready to go. These devices are school supplies. Think of them as textbooks when you were in school. We know that not everyone has been issued a device yet, but those who do already have one need to ensure it is at school every day.

Farney Field Day-May 14th

Farney Field Day is happening! Only face-to-face students will be able to participate on campus, as this is an extension of what is taught in P.E. However our connect students be "Among Us" and will have an opportunity to earn points for their homeroom by participating in events at home. More details and shirt order forms will be coming soon! Unfortunately, we are unable to allow spectators at this event.

A Course Verification Form will be sent home the week of April 26-30, 2021 .

Release of Information Forms If you are needing Behavior Rating Scales completed or are wanting the school to communicate with an outside entity, private tutor, doctor etc. , you will need to complete a Release of Information Form for this school year. You can request this form through the counseling office. When asking teachers to complete Behavior Rating Scales, you will need to give one week’s notice to allow teachers ample time to complete the forms. These forms will be faxed directly to the doctor’s office and you will be notified once this is completed.

Credit By Exam

There is another opportunity available this summer to test to skip for the 21-22 school year. Please see the district website for summer testing dates. 5th graders wishing to skip 6th grade will use the secondary dates and contact the counselor for an application. .
