Show School Information
When your child is absent, you must notify the school - by using the link at the bottom of this page, sending a note, or writing in your child's agenda - with an explanation for the absence.  The CMS Parent Student Handbook (page 12) lists the types of absences that are excused and those that are unexcused.

Note:  Do not plan to check your child out from school before 2:45 p.m. unless you have a medical or dental appointment.  If your child has a medical or dental appointment that requires early dismissal, please sign them out before 2:00 p.m.  We do not call students for dismissal between 2:00 and 2:45 p.m. due to the disruption it creates in our regular dismissal proceedings. 

According to Charlotte Mecklenburg School Board Policy JHBB and the NC Compulsary Attendance Law (N.C.G.S.-ยง115C-378), parents and guardians are responsible for seeing that their children attend school each day that school is in session. 



If your child is absent, please select the link below to email the absence information to our attendance secretary.
