Time to Update SchoolMessenger Preferences


It's time for all CCS families to update their communication preferences from the school. This must be done as soon as possible in order to receive your preferred types of communication from the school regarding emergencies, school closings, etc. You may CLICK HERE for an overview of how SchoolMessenger works. There are two ways to select/update your preferences. 

First, if you have already downloaded the CCS app onto your phone, you can open our school app and scroll to the bottom of the home page.  Click on the "SchoolMessenger App" icon and follow the directions to set up your account.  You will then be able to select your preferred means of communication from the school.  If you do not have the CCS app on your phone, you can also go to to set up your account and select your preferences. 

If you do not set up your notification preferences (annually), you will not receive important phone messages sent by the school throughout the school year.

Earn Tuition Credit with Scrip

During this school year,  several CCS families participated in our new tuition-credit program through Scrip. Families purchased gift cards at face value and received a percentage back as a tuition credit for the 2017-2018 school year. In total, families received just over $1400 in rebates this year! The top earning family has received over $300 in credit towards next year's tuition. This was our first year with the program, and we know that next year families will be earning even more!

Now is the time to start earning tuition credit for the 2018-2019 school year. All summer long, you can purchase electronic Scrip cards and shop immediately. Before summer vacation begins, be sure your account is set up!

Traffic Adjustments in Inclement Weather

Thank you for your patience as we dealt with this morning's snowfall. We think that you will agree that the snow came at the most inconvenient time!  Occasionally we will need to change the traffic pattern to keep everyone safe in the winter. Please help us accomplish this by:


  • Driving slowly and carefully at all times.
  • Watching for staff members who are directing traffic and following their instructions.
  • Rolling down your window as you approach staff members so that they can give you the best directions. (It is hard to see through tinted windshields in order to send you to the correct location!)
  • Showing patience as you wait in lines, rather than putting others in danger by driving around stopped vehicles.
