We recommend you make copies of your required documents. Bringing your own copies will expedite the process. PLEASE NOTE: you are still required to bring the originals with you. Without the originals, we will not be able to complete your residency. Current 8th Grade students who do not complete the Residency Verification process will not be enrolled in classes for the 2020-21 school year.

CMS offers a Homework Center Monday through Thursday from 3:00 - 4:00 in the school library starting August 27. The Homework Center is supervised by a teacher, and students will have access to technology and the necessary resources to complete assignments. The Homework Center is offered on a drop-in basis; no registration is necessary. Arrangements should be made so that students are picked up or walk directly home no later than 4:00 as there is no campus supervision after that time.
