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 does my child get a school lunch?

Good news: ALL STUDENTS qualify to receive free school meals for the 2022-23 school year. The menu for Fall 2022 is available HERE
Every morning, when attendance is taken, teachers will ask students if they need a school lunch. An accurate headcount is needed to help our cafeteria staff prepare for meals each day.

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 appropriate office as soon as possible to let us know. If you do not call by 10:30 am on the day of your child's absence, you will receive an automated text/email/phone call from Aeries Communication (ParentSquare). Parents/guardians have three days to report an absence to the school, after which the unexcused absence becomes a truancy.
