Frequently Asked Questions
My child forgot homework/lunch/textbook/calculator. How can I get this to my child?
Please drop off any forgotten item in the Main Office. Enter campus and the Main Office is located through the first door on your right. A campus map can be found on the home page of our website on the left side. Please attach a note with your child’s name to the item and leave it on the small round table. Your child can come and pick up the item between classes, at break, or at lunch. The office cannot be responsible for any items on the table.
Please note that forgotten items will NOT be delivered to students in the classroom! A forgotten item is not a reason to interrupt the learning environment for 35+ students and the teacher. Students can easily pick up the item outside of class time. Exceptions are made only for medical reasons.
My child forgot sports uniform or sports equipment. How can I get this to my child?
Due to the size of the equipment, all forgotten sports equipment must be taken to Student Services South. Please attach a note with your child’s name before dropping it off. A campus map can be found on the home page of our website on the left side.
When are athletic clearance forms due for sports?
Athletic Clearance forms for each school year must be dated on or after July 1 of the summer prior to the start of school.
The completed forms (including doctor’s signature) must be turned in to a coach on the first day of try-outs. Forms can be downloaded from the Athletic Boosters website at http://cphs.mdusd.org/collegeparkathleticboosters or picked up in Student Services South.
I have a question and don’t know who to ask. Where should I start? What is the best way to contact someone?
Due to limited hours and phone coverage, the best way to ask a question about College Park is by e-mail. The e-mail can then be forwarded to the appropriate person. For a list of office staff, please see Office Staff on the school website under the Administration Tab. The Position Title might help you to determine the best person to ask.
If you don’t know where to start, please send an e-mail to Ms. Cheng firstname.lastname@example.org in the main office and she will direct you. Please allow 48 hours for a response.
Don’t forget, you can always use the Search Box on our school website to obtain helpful information.
I need to pick up my child for an appointment during the school day. How do I do that?
If a student must leave in the middle of the school day, the student must get a “Request to Leave” permit. Please see instructions for how to do this on the Attendance Office page under the Administration Tab at http://cphs.mdusd.org/AttendanceOffice. It is best to call ahead of time. Students who leave without obtaining a “Request to Leave” permit before leaving, will be marked truant.
