Visiting CMS:

Currently, under the district-wide COVID-19 guidelines, there is limited access to the building. All meetings possible will be held via WebEx or over the phone. 

Drop-off items are limited to necessities such as medication and student laptops. If lunch is forgotten, our students can get food via the cafeteria at no cost through December 2020; after that time, they will be able to charge it. Also, for any paper assignments, etc. that may have been forgotten at home, those can simply be sent electronically to your student or teacher.

 The District and campuses want to offer and create meaningful ways for parents and community members to be engaged and involved this school year. The safety of students, staff and visitors will guide the decisions about these opportunities considering the continued concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Campuses will implement a tiered system regarding visitors in the building and campus events and activities based on the community spread level determined by Tarrant County Public HealthThe complete set of guidelines can be found here.


All campuses remain locked during the school day. Intercom systems are located at the main entrances of our schools. Visitors should go to the main entrance and press the intercom button located near the front door. Designated campus personnel will identify the visitor and the purpose of the visit. Once access is granted, visitors must check in with the front office. Our campuses utilize Raptor which compares information in the national sex offender database. Visitors will be asked to present a driver's license or state-issued ID. This will provide an added layer of protection to ensure our schools remain secure environments for students, staff and approved visitors.

It is very important that you bring your Driver's License or Government ID when you plan on entering the campus. In an effort to help parents know more about the new visitor process and how to operate the new check-in kiosks, the Director of Emergency Management and School Security made a video with instructions below! 

Thank you for your cooperation in presenting your valid state-issued ID when checking in at any of our campuses. We appreciate your support.
