Dismissal Reminder

Please remember to send a note or email to the office if there are any changes to your child's dismissal plan. While we understand last minute changes do occur, we will not be taking last minute changes on a regular basis. A note or email is preferred and appreciated so we can plan for a more timely dismissal. We appreciate your support!

Additionally, students will not be called for dismissal between 2:00pm - 2:40pm as we are preparing for dismissal. If you know your child must be picked up early please inform the office so we can have them ready for you and so we do not disrupt the educational process in the classrooms.

Dismissal takes place between 2:50 - 3:10 PM, please make the appropriate arrangements to pick up your child from school on time, or be at the bus stop at least 10-15 minutes prior to the designated time. Elementary scholars must be met at the bus stop by a responsible adult unless a drop off waiver has been submitted. Thank you in advance for your support, your child's safety is our concern.

CSMA Dress Code

Please see information about our dress code below. All students should be in uniform daily with shirts tucked in. Grey sweatpants and t-shirts are allowed on PE days. NO LOGOS please. There is a 7 day grace period for uniforms. By Monday, Sept. 13th the dress code will be fully enforced. Hoodies and non-uniform jackets or sweaters will not be allowed. Please be sure if you child needs an additional layer over their uniform shirt it is uniform color and has no hood or logos. If you have an issue with uniforms or have any questions please feel free to reach out.
