Absence and Early Dismissal Reminders

When calling the CMS Attendance line and leaving a message please do the following:

  • Talk slightly slower than usual.
  • Spell your child's last name
  • Provide a reason for their absence

If you need to pick your child up early from school it is BEST to leave a message on the absence line, send them to school with a note for the main office, or call the office before 1:00 PM. We understand last second changes happen, however, the office has been inundated with last second changes and it is difficult to meet expected timelines without timely communication.
