Principal's Greeting

Hello CRMS Family,

1. We would like to host a parent Dinner and Speaker Series here at CRMS. Our hope is that we can bring in speakers to provide education to our parents and guardians on a variety of topics. In order to provide a meaningful experience for our families, we would like to get your input about what topics you might want to hear about. Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey. Parent Dinner and Speaker Series Survey

2. IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR BUS RIDERS: We will have new bus routes starting on Wednesday, November 9th. Please check the updated bus routes to make sure you know what bus your child will ride on Wednesday. New Bus Routes

3. We had a really great Coffee and Conversations on Friday that allowed parents and administration to discuss in depth some questions and concerns. After last week, there were many questions about safety and security. For more detailed information about CCSD safety and security protocols please visit the Operations / Security and Emergency Management ( website.

We look forward to having another productive week of learning at CRMS this week!

School Technology Information You Need to Know...

Students should NOT bring their Chromebook chargers to school. Please charge devices at home each evening. Chargers tend to disappear at school, and we have no way to track them. Students will be responsible for the cost of replacing lost chargers, so please don’t let your student bring the charger to school!

A reminder about the CCSD fee structure for damages and loss of chromebooks:

  • Negligent/Accidental Breakage - No charge for first incident per school year $50 per incident for each subsequent event
  • Intentional Vandalism - $300.
  • Stolen Device - No cost if a police report is provided
  • Lost Device - $300
  • Lost Charger - $40

Stay in the loop with your child's academics!
