6th-Grade Proof of Residency

Good afternoon, Parents/Guardians of Richview Middle 6th-Grade Students,

To ensure students are correctly enrolled at their zoned school during the transition from elementary to middle, parents/guardians of all CMCSS incoming 6th graders must provide two proofs of residence. These must be turned in within the first 30 days of school.

Options for turning in the two proofs of residence:

  • Bring the originals or copies to the front office of the school
  • Bring the originals or copies to the CMCSS Enrollment Center (430 Greenwood Ave.)
  • Send copies in a sealed envelope with your student to turn in to the front office at the school
  • Email scanned/photographed copies to [email protected]

For a list of accepted proofs of residence, please visit https://www.cmcss.net/registration.

NOTE: If your child is a new-to-CMCSS enrollee for the 2022-2023 school year, you would have recently provided the proofs of residency during registration and do not need to resubmit them.

CMCSS 2022-2023 In-Person Learning COVID-19 Overview

CMCSS has communicated with families since last year that schools cannot eliminate the spread of COVID-19 during in-person learning, but our collective actions can help mitigate the spread. The District’s COVID-19 mitigation strategy has always been about using multiple layers to improve success, sometimes referred to as the Swiss Cheese model. For the 2022-2023 school year, CMCSS is using the following mitigation layers:

  • Using MERV 13 instead of MERV 9 filters in all buildings
  • Increasing outdoor air ventilation
  • Employing enhanced two-step cleaning throughout buildings
  • Encouraging self-screening, masks, handwashing, covering sneezes, and staying home when sick for all students, employees, and visitors
  • Replenishing hand sanitizing stations
  • Promoting the use of personal water bottles and filling stations
  • Providing and COVID-19 testing for employees and their families at Onsite Employee Health and Wellness Clinics
  • Updating and implementing the Return to School/Work Flowchart

 COVID-19 Exposure Response Plan

When a CMCSS student or CMCSS employee tests positive for COVID-19, they will need to notify either the school nurse (if they are a student) or their supervisor (if they are an employee). The medical office that performed the test will notify the Montgomery County Health Department for contact tracing. Click here for the CMCSS Communicable Diseases and/or Illness Management Policy.

Click here for the current CMCSS Return to Work/School Flowchart developed by the CMCSS Safety and Health Department in collaboration with the Montgomery County Health Department. For the Spanish version, click here.

Self-Screening

Employees will be expected to self-screen before entering school premises.

Self-screening protocols for students and visitors will continue. Families are strongly encouraged to engage in self-screening at home prior to each school day. Click here for updated guidance from the CDC regarding screening K-12 students for symptoms of COVID-19.

Self-Screening Protocol

Have you had any of the below symptoms as a new-onset in the past 72 hours? (This does not include chronic conditions)

  • fever of 100 degrees or greater
  • new onset of a cough
  • new onset of shortness of breath
  • new onset of sore throat
  • new onset of body aches
  • diarrhea
  • new onset of headache
  • new onset of loss of taste or smell
  • nausea or vomiting
  • congestion or runny nose
  • chills
  • fatigue

If “yes”, please consult your personal health care provider before returning to any CMCSS locations. Students, employees, and visitors who are sick must follow the CMCSS Flowchart.

 

Effective June 10, 2022. Subject to change based on updated guidance and local, state, or national recommendations or mandates.

Family Life Curriculum Development Process Public Meetings

As communicated last semester, effective 2021-2022, all school systems in Tennessee are required to implement a program of family life education (T.C.A. 49-6-1302). In the fall, CMCSS sought feedback from teachers, parents/guardians, and other stakeholders on three proposed Family Life Curriculum resources that could be used by educators to teach the required components. After reviewing feedback with the CMCSS School Board, District leaders paused the process to seek additional guidance from the Tennessee Department of Education, legal counsel, and other districts across Tennessee. 

CMCSS is inviting all stakeholders to engage in the Family Life Curriculum development process by participating in one of the upcoming public meetings. At the meetings, District personnel will engage with stakeholders to address the following questions: 

  • What materials or textbooks will be used to develop the CMCSS curriculum?
  • How will teachers and students access the curriculum? 
  • What is required to be taught?

Meetings:

  • Tuesday, February 15
    • 10 a.m. at Central Services South – 1312 Highway 48/13, Clarksville, TN 37040
    • 5:30 p.m. at West Creek High School – 1210 West Creek Coyote Trail, Clarksville, TN 37042 (enter at the cafeteria/activities entrance)
  • Thursday, February 17
    • 5:30 p.m. at Central Services South – 1312 Highway 48/13, Clarksville, TN 37040
