Parent Information

  • We like to welcome your child to Carbondale Middle School! In order to keep parents more informed about happenings within the school, we hope you use this page as a resource.  We are also available by phone or email for your convenience. Please feel free to contact us. We're here to help!



Reporting School Absences

  • If your child is sick or absent from CMS, please call the school at 457-2174 and then push 2 to report an absence. It's important to call each day your child is absent.


    If your child will be absent for an unexpected emergency (i.e. accident or death in the family), please leave that information inyour message on the absenttee line.  We will pass the message on to the teachers so your child is not penalized for unexcused absences.


    If your child will be absent for an extended period of time, please click here to download the Pre-Arranged Absence Form.  This will enable your child to gather homework in advance so they do not get behind while they are away.


Reporting Attendance

  • District 95 has implemented an automated system to notify parents/guardians when a child is absent or when the school will be closed due to weather. Please be sure CMS has a current, working phone number to contact your family. The Automated system will call any student who is absent. If you have already called in to excuse your child, please disregard the call. If you believe you have received the call in error, please contact us.


    The first bell will be at 7:50 AM

    The tardy bell will ring at 7:55 AM


    If you believe attedance data is incorrect, please report it to the contact number listed.  If you believe a grade is missing or incorrect, please contact your child's teacher.
