Student Schedules

All student schedules will be available to view on Monday September 6 via Student and Parent Vue. There will be no schedule changes made unless the student is double scheduled for the same class during this school year or needs a specialized class that has to be approved by the school counselor or administrator.


Music Careers rotates curriculum, therefore your student may be enrolled in that class this school year even though they took that course last school year.

School Meals

We are excited to announce that this school year, until June 2022, we will be offering free breakfast and lunch for ALL students. There is no need to qualify for this service as it will benefit all students across the state of Oregon.

CMS Student Fees

Currently our only student fee consists of PE uniforms. Our PE uniform is integral to our wellness program as it supports students to safely perform specific physical education activities and ensures that students are comfortable during their PE class. This year our PE uniforms will be $12.00 and to determine if this fee may be waived please fill out the Meal Benefit Program. Our PE teachers will be sending home more information on how to pay for your PE uniform when the school year begins.

2020-2021 Yearbook ready for pick up at our CMS office 8:00-3:00.
