Campus Hours For Students

HUSD Food Service Announcement
Beginning January 9th, students without sufficient funds in their meal accounts to pay for a meal may be given a USDA approved alternative meal instead of the regular hot lunch.
Please check your student’s balance and make a deposit if needed at www.mymealtime.com
You may also send a check or cash in an envelope to your elementary or middle school office, or to the café with your high school student.
Please contact Food Service if you have any questions.
Registration for next year’s classes, which will begin in January, will be done online this year. As part of the online process parents will have to approve their student’s course selections through Synergy’s ParentVue. If you do not already have a username/password set up for ParentVue you will need to stop by the front office at Cooley to pick up your personal activation code to set up your account. For security purposes this cannot be done via the telephone or email.

Change In Athletic Clearance Process
In an attempt to streamline the athletic clearance process, Cooley Middle School is going paperless. You will now complete the athletic clearance packet electronically at RegisterMyAthlete.com. All forms can be viewed and signed electronically, and additional required forms (i.e. physical forms and concussion test results) can be uploaded to your account. Please follow the instruction link below to register your student for athletic clearance for the 2016-2017 school year. It is strongly recommended that all documents be submitted electronically prior to the break that precedes your student's sport season. Incomplete registrations will prohibit your student from participating in try-outs. If you have any questions, contact the technical support department from Register My Athlete, or contact Cooley Middle School. Thank you!
*If your student has turned in an athletic packet for 1st or 2nd quarter sports, the above process does not apply to try out for 3rd or 4th quarter sports. HOWEVER, if your student makes a 3rd or 4th quarter team, the above process will be mandatory in order to have all needed information electronically at Register My Athlete. Thank you!
CMS Campus Tours
Cooley Middle School offers campus tours on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 2:00 p.m. Please call 480-279-8300 to RSVP. We look forward to seeing you!
Before/After School Detention Notification
Beginning the week of October 24th, Cooley Middle School will be adding before/after school detention as a possible consequence for violations of the student code of conduct. Before school detention will be held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:45-8:45 a.m. After school detention will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:55-4:55 p.m. If your student is assigned before/after school detention, you will be notified and given the option to choose the day/time that works best for you. Parents/guardians will be responsible for transportation to or from detention (no late or early bus provided). Before/after school detention will only be assigned by administration. Thank you!
CMS Front Office Procedure Change
In order to minimize the disruptions to instruction, we are restricting deliveries to students to items that are essential to the educational process. Therefore, classes will not be interrupted for delivery of items.
Parents will need to wait for their student to be called to the office between classes to receive ANY item that has been brought for them by a parent or family member, including but not limited to lunches, lunch money, homework, or PE clothing. Due to health regulations, lunch/food drop offs can only be for your student. Lunch/food cannot be provided for your student and their friends.
Flowers, birthday items, pizza, etc. will not be accepted from businesses for delivery. Restaurant deliveries are also not allowed.
The front office will NOT be responsible for delivering items to students.
Thank you for your understanding!
