This school year is the first time CMS has implemented early dismissal district wide. These early-release days are important because it gives teachers time to train and grow as educators. October 7 is an early-release day, and students will be dismissed at 1:15. Please be sure to have plans for your child on all early-release days, as they will need to be picked up promptly if they are car riders. Other early-release days are 1/20 at 1:15, 3/1 at 2:15 and 4/20 at 1:15. Lunch will be served, and extracurricular activities will not take place on early dismissal days.
