Principals' Update: Construction and Tour Update

Construction and Tour Update
Dear CMS families,
We hope you are enjoying your summer so far. At CMS, we are planning so many exciting things for our students when they return to school. All around us, a newly renovated building is taking shape. CMS is being designed for the needs of 21st century learning to enhance our focus on academic achievement, supporting each learner, and providing opportunities for all students.
We received updated schedules on construction, and we are modifying our original plan for school tours. We want to give families who are interested an opportunity to see the building before open house nights. We are moving the “first look” tours to mid-August. Look for an update later in July on the tour schedule, and in August, we’ll share more information about the 2021-22 school year. We can’t wait to show you everything that’s in store for CMS students!

Minnesota law requires all incoming 7th grade students to show proof of the following immunization:

  • Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis (Tdap) booster
  • Meningococcal (MCV4): 1st dose

Children may be exempt from immunization for various reasons, including certain medical conditions or religious/personal beliefs. If your child has a medical condition and is unable to receive certain vaccines, or if your religious/personal beliefs contradict vaccines, please complete the back of the immunization form (section 1, A and/or B). To obtain the immunization form please visit this link.

All students are expected to be in compliance with the state immunization laws on the first day of the 2021-2022 school year. Students who fail to provide proof of immunization or exemption will be at risk of exclusion from school.

Please provide verification of immunization by mail or fax to:
