Parents: Attendance Matters!
Did you know that children can suffer academically if they miss 10 percent of the school year? That’s just 18 days or 2 to 3 days a month. And that can add up before you know it. This school year, Richland School District middle schools are participating in the Attendance Matters United Way campaign with a renewed push to get all kids to school—on time, every day. Research shows us that absences add up. That’s as true for kindergartners as it is for 12th graders. It’s as true for excused absences as it is for skipping school. We know there will be days when your child will miss school, especially when they’re sick. But did you know that nationwide, as many as 7.5 million students miss 10 percent of the school year? That’s 135 million days of missed school –and missed opportunities. And research shows us it also marks the point when students start to fall behind academically because they have missed too many days.

For more information, please contact Becky Thomas, CMS school counselor, at or 509-967-6432.

And some items of interest for planning a successful year…

Current Addresses: Please let the office know if you have a change of address. You may leave that information on our voice mail during the summer. The phone number is 967-6425. If there is more than one address per family, please indicate where student resides.

Emergency Numbers: It is very important that parents keep the school informed of changes in addresses and phone numbers, both home and work. Emergency contacts and phone numbers are especially crucial if a student becomes ill or injured. Please notify the school office at 967-6425 or 967-6427 when such changes occur. We can accommodate cell phone numbers and e-mail addresses as well.

School Supplies: School supply lists will be discussed by teachers on the first day of school. Students will need the following on the first day:

3-ring notebook Eraser Pencils
Notebook paper Ballpoint pens, black or blue Zippered pencil pouch
Notebook dividers Math notebook (3-ring) A great, positive attitude!

The following sports are available to 7th & 8th graders:
Football, cross country, volleyball, dance, boys basketball, girls basketball, wrestling, track, fast pitch softball and baseball.

Sports participation forms may be picked up outside of the office window. You only need one physical for the entire school year, and most parents take care of this during the summer. Your student-athlete will be given a schedule of games and practices from his or her coach. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Galliher (our athletic director) at 967-6439

Our office needs your help...

It is our desire to provide quality serve to you and your student. We are a small staff for a large middle school (three office secretaries for 900 + students). Because of the extremely busy and varied activity of a large middle school, we are asking for your help with the following items:

  • Please remember to call our attendance office, 967-6427, on the mornings that your child is absent. Please don't send your sick child to school.
  • Teachers have asked that you not request homework until the 2nd day that your child is absent. Generally a student who is out one day can get caught up on homework upon his return.
  • If you are planning an absence, your student may pick up a pre-arranged absence form from the office to inform teachers and obtain homework.
  • Money for lunches may be put on account in the cafeteria. Make check payable to "RSD" and give it to Mrs. Parker (cafe supervisor) in the cafeteria. We are often inundated to deliver messages to students, requests for calls home for rides or money, deliveries of clothing, etc., and most of these are related to after-school activities, dances, or holidays. Please make arrangements with your child regarding these items in advance of the day of the activity. We have designed a year-long calendar for most, if not all, of these activities to help you plan.
  • Our policy regarding delivery of balloons, flowers, candy, etc., is that a note only will be delivered to the student. The above items tend to be a disruption to classes and are difficult to handle in the halls and on the buses, so we kindly request that you send your special student a gift at home.
