Attendance is Important for Student Success!

We appreciate everyone's efforts to avoid taking extra days off during the school year and especially around holidays.

Just a few missed days here and there, even if they're excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and leave your child behind in school.

Please take the opportunity to attend Saturday School. Get back instructional classroom time and support the fiscal health of the district so CMS can continue to provide exceptional programs.

Did you know that...

  • the state of California no longer recognizes an "excused" absence?  We do not get funding when a student is home ill.

Did you know that...

  • on any given day an average of 25 students at CMS are absent. That also means roughly a loss of $1,500 per day or a loss of $270,000 per school year to CMS in state funding.

Did you know that...

  • every day your child is away from school, the school district loses about $60 for that day of non-attendance?

Did you know that...

  • if your child attends school for part of the day, we do get credit for that attendance? So if your child has a doctor's appointment during school hours, he/she still needs to attend school for the remainder of the day.
