Common Questions

Below is a list of frequently asked questions you may have about normal everyday life at CCDS!

How do I pick-up my child after school?

You may meet your child (K-5) at their classroom or pick-up at the curb.  Middle school kids will be outside their building for pick-up.  All kids are "swept" from the curb into the main office at 2:55 p.m.  At 3 p.m. they are taken to ASP and will be charged for ASP services.

How do I pick-up my child in the middle of the day for a medical appointment?

You are welcome to call the office on your way here and we will attempt to have them waiting for you. Always allow yourself enough time to sign-out your child and go to their class to pick them up,as we may not be able to do this.

How do I get lunch money to the cafeteria?

Please drop off money in the office and we will make sure the cafeteria receives it.  You may also sign-up on Titan School Solutions (replaced School Bucks as of July 1) which is website that manages your student's meal account information. You will be able to make payments and add money to your child's account. Please email Stacy in the main office for the student I.D.  It's a special number that is only used for lunch account.

When can I drop my child off in the morning?

Campus does not open until 7:45 a.m.  This is because we do not have a staff outside to watch students.  Please drop-off after 7:45 a.m.  The children may play on the play structure, but only if they see a staff member in the quad.

What do I need to do when my child is absent?

Please call or email the office to let us know.  This should be done within three days of your child's absence.  If you do not call by 1:45 p.m., you will receive an automated reminder call on the day of the absence from the school number (895-2650) and/or an email around 2 p.m.  Do not "reply" to the auto email or rely on your child' teacher to pass along information to the office.
