What is Canvas? 

Canvas is our new educational platform that houses all your student’s courses and lesson plans. In fact, some of our teachers have already been utilizing Canvas. The Canvas program allows teachers to make announcements, post assignments, and interact with students. Students will use Canvas to submit coursework, complete online tests, and interact with their classmates. Students must log in to Microsoft Office prior to logging in to Canvas for the first time. Click here for more information.

What if we need to make a change to our child’s schedule? 

You may email our registrar in the school office to request a schedule change. 

What are the options for lunch? 

Students may bring a sack lunch or use the lunch program, which involves lunches being purchased through a lunch account. Funds may be added to the family lunch account on registration day, before school in the school office, or through the family ParentsWeb account. Students then give their name or show their ASB card at the time of purchase, and purchases are verified through photo ID in the RenWeb lunch system. The lunch menu button can be found on the high school home page. Vending machines and microwave ovens are also available for use by students.

What is the best way to contact our child’s teacher? 

The best way to communicate with a teacher is through email. Email addresses for your child’s teachers are available in your ParentsWeb/FACTS account, or you can find the Faculty Directory through the My CCS link at the top of this webpage. If you need to speak to a teacher immediately, you may call the office at (253) 445-9706 and leave a message for that teacher to return your call. 

Where can I get more information regarding school policies and procedures? 

Additional information is available in the District Parent/Student Handbook. The campus home page is also a valuable source of information. 

Does our driving student need a parking permit? 

No, parking permits are not required. However, please fill out the Student Parking Registration Information form and turn it into the main office. 

How do I get involved in the parent group? 

Our Parents for Cascade (PfC) group meets once a month for an event planning and fellowship time. All parents are welcome! 

Do you have a school nurse?

The school has a district health coordinator (registered nurse) who reviews and manages general policies and practices that pertain to student health-related matters. The office personnel handle minor health and first aid needs. All staff members are required to be current on first aid training, CPR training, and the proper handling of blood-borne pathogens. For a major emergency, 9-1-1 would be called immediately.

Do you accept students with special needs?

Our entrance testing and interview process help our administrators determine whether we are able to serve and support the individual needs of students. We are open to enrolling any student with any additional support needs as long as we feel we are properly equipped to serve them well.

How do you keep students safe on campus?

Our CCS director of safety and security works to establish programs, procedures, and training to increase the safety of all CCS campuses. Emergency preparedness is a key way that we keep students safe on campus. We routinely rehearse procedures that our staff would use in the event of an emergency incident. We regularly conduct drills for fire, lockdown, shelter-in-place, evacuation to a mutual aid site, lahar, and earthquake.

Other safety procedures on campus include the following: all staff members wear staff identification badges; all visitors are instructed to check in and out at the school office and to wear an identification badge while on campus; all outside doors are monitored throughout the day; safe routes for traveling around campus are taught to students and reinforced routinely.

Do you have a high school profile I can view? 

Yes, see our high school profile for a complete overview of CCHS, including diploma tracks, SAT test scores, and college choices.
