CMHS Return to Learn Plan for Fall 2020
Civic Memorial High School is excited to welcome students and staff back to school for Fall 2020. While this year will be different and challenging at times, we are committed to providing your student with a positive learning experience that will allow them to succeed in college and career. Your partnership is essential to us as we must work together to ensure the best for your student. The hybrid model allows us to reduce our population by 50%, which allows us to social distance and reduces the number of students during passing periods. Full Plan Click Here
Student Registration Information
This year we will be conducting online registration via PowerSchool for our returning students.You will not need paper copies of forms. New students will use a link on our website to begin the registration process. Parents of returning students can upload proof of residency documents required to complete the process. Parents who are unable to upload documents may complete all other portions of the registration process online and can bring the proof of residency documents to the schools during the times listed below. We encourage you to do this all online as our buildings will not be open for mass numbers of people and we will only be serving one family at a time. Please note that at least one parent/guardian must have a PowerSchool parent account to complete registration. We have emailed these forms out several times over the summer. You will have to use a web browser to complete online registration and will not be able to use the app. However, you can use your web browser on your phone to log in and complete registration. We will be utilizing MySchoolBucks to take registration payments this year. You will be able to access and pay your fees directly in PowerSchool or MySchoolBucks. We will be sharing more information regarding this and ensuring you have access to it in the near future. You may also mail student fees or drop off at the buildings during the times below.
Fees for the upcoming school year are as follows: 9-12=$120
