CMS Tardy Policy
Students are expected to arrive to school and to each of their class periods on time. School begins promptly at 8:55am. Passing periods are four minutes long and students have a one minute warning bell before the tardy bell rings. After a student has been tardy twice to any class period, students receive a lunch detention. After three lunch detentions (6 tardies), students serve an in-school suspension.
Tardies are excused for doctor’s appointments, illnesses, etc. When students arrive on campus from an appointment, parents please be specific on the type of appointment when signing your student in.
**Please note that if a student is tardy in the first 10 minutes of a class, no matter the reason, attendance will reflect a TA code for the tardy. However, with a doctor, ortho, etc. note or a parent signature and specific appointment reason listed, it will be excused, which will be excluded from tardy consequences.
Keeping Our School Community Healthy - January 2, 2021
Dear HUSD Families,
Happy New Year! We hope that you and your family had an opportunity for a well-rested break with loved ones. As we prepare to resume on Monday, we need your help to keep our school community healthy and to minimize the potential of positive cases on campus. In an abundance of caution, we ask that if your student(s) has traveled, attended events or parties over this break with those outside of your immediate household to please stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days. We encourage everyone to monitor their symptoms and to get tested if they have had potential exposure to ensure that they are healthy before they return to campus. We all need to be vigilant and work together so we can continue to keep our schools open. Without everyone taking mitigation strategies seriously it could lead to the closure of campuses.
When we resume classes on January 4, remember to keep your student home if they:
- need to self-quarantine due to potential exposure,
- are not well and are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, or
- are awaiting COVID-19 test results, or
- have received a positive COVID-19 test result, or
- someone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19
Thank you for doing your part to help keep our schools healthy.
Lets kick-off the new year with a great start! Enjoy the weekend and see you Monday.

Emergency Contact Information
As a reminder, emergency contacts are designated adults that are able to pick up your student when they need to leave school due to a medical emergency. The school cannot release a student to an emergency contact for other reasons such as to go to lunch, appointments, etc. To release a student during the school day to someone other than a parent/guardian, the school needs parent permission ahead of time. Thank you!
CMS Front Office Procedure
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.
If it is absolutely necessary to drop off an item for your student, it will be stored in the front office storage area. Your student can come and get their item between classes or during lunch. Please note that we are not responsible for dropped off items.
Flowers, birthday items, pizza, etc. will not be accepted from businesses for delivery. Restaurant deliveries are also not allowed including Door Dash, Uber, etc.
The front office will NOT be responsible for delivering items to students.
Please also note that we do our best to deliver phone messages. Messages are delivered the last 5 minutes of a class period in order to not interrupt instructional time.
Thank you for your understanding!
