Student Placement Location, Hours, Contact Information

CMS Families – this week you should have received your student’s annual assignment notification letter, alerting them to their CMS school assignment for the 2022-23 school year and providing instructions for participating in the school choice lottery.  The letter contained a message which said “Your lottery application have been voided and you must reapply before the deadline date.”  Please disregard this portion of the letter.  All other information, including the student’s ID and PIN and 22-23 school assignment is correct.  Only families who wish to change their student’s 22-23 assignment need to take action.  Please visit the Student Placement or School Choice websites for additional information.
