Overview of a School Day

Don't forget, middle schools in CCSD begin at 9:15 am.
To help you plan for your adjustment to middle school,
below is an overview of what a typical day looks like.

Students arriving after 8:00 am should report to the theater for study hall.
Students should not arrive prior to 8:00 am.
At 8:50 am students will be released to their homeroom teacher. Students arriving after 8:50 am should report to their homeroom teacher.At 9:10 am students will be released to their lockers to get their books for 1st period.
At 9:15 am the tardy bell will ring, the Daniell News Network will aired, and classes will begin.

Parents arriving after the tardy bell has rung will need
to sign their student in tardy at the Attendance Office.
Students will attend seven classes which are 50 minutes in length.

Students will have scheduled locker access. Students should not share lockers or give out their locker combinations to others. Students who have PE/Health will also have a locker in the gym area. Students should not share this combination either.

At 4:10 pm afternoon announcements will be given to students. Dismissal will be at 4:15 pm.
Other important first day of school information
  1. Lockers will be assigned to students as they return all their back to school paperwork with parent signatures.

  2. For students who did not get to attend Sneak-A-Peek Friday, alphabetical lists by grade level of student homerooms will be posted in the lobby and around the building.  Students just need to locate their name on the list, see who their homeroom teacher is, and go to that room. Maps and adults will be present throughout the campus to help students locate their rooms. The homeroom teacher will have the schedule for the student. If a student isn’t on the list yet, they just need to go to the learning commons for assistance. If there is a missing class or problem with a schedule once a student picks it up from their homeroom teacher, just take it to Mrs. Parrinello in the learning commons.

  3. Parent Vue will not be active for a few weeks. We will notify you as soon as the district launches it. For questions about ParentVue, email Mrs. Wynn.

  4. Questions as to what bus you should ride? Click here.

  5. As always, don't forget that at the middle school and high school level schedules are subject to change once school starts as classes will have to be balanced. This is always dependent upon the number of new enrollees to the school and the number of families who have moved over the summer.

  6. For 6th graders, be sure to remind your student that they will only have five classes out of their seven scheduled at this point. Their connections classes (band, chorus, technology, art, orchestra, PE, etc.) will be scheduled for them once they have rotated through the classes during the first couple of weeks of school.
