It's just two weeks until the 2017-2018 school year begins on Monday, August 28th in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. The Charlotte Mecklenburg School's (CMS) website provides links for all the information you might need to get your kids ready for the new school year, including information about school open houses, bus/transportation schedules, school assignments and more.
Check out the new CMS Parent Toolkit, which provides all the information you might need about student enrollment and placement, important phone numbers, NC report cards on schools, athletic programs, magnet schools, child nutrition, parent volunteer opportunities... and the list of resources goes on...
And don't forget about CMS's mobile app, CMS on the Go!, which you can dowload to any smartphone or tablet to get access to all the information you might need about any of the 164 schools in the CMS system... from school closings/delays, critical dates and deadlines for school district events and news. You can also stay current with helpful tips and district news on CMS's Facebook page and Twitter account. Meantime, from the CMS website, here's handy information about key contacts in the CMS system, as well as a checklist for parents to be ready for the 2017-2018 school year.
Key Contact Information

Register students who are new to CMS
Families may enroll students at their home school. Click here for information on enrolling new students.
Update address if needed
Make sure schools have the most current address and phone number for all families.
Make sure students are have all required vaccinations and physicals
Having your child properly immunized is a key part of preparing for the upcoming school year. For other information about vaccinations and physicals, click here.
Check your transportation information
Families may have already received, or will soon receive, bus stop pick-up and drop-off times in the mail. Make sure you review your bus stop location and time – some bus stops may have changed.
Once families receive bus schedules, it is important to review them with the student. We encourage parents to walk to and from the assigned bus stop, particularly with elementary students.
Please inform and update any address change at your child’s school immediately. Transportation must have the current address to ensure safe and accurate bus stop assignments for eligible students.
If your child will require a pick-up or drop-off at an address that is not your home address, you must apply for that service each year by filling out the alternate stop form.
If you have a question about transportation, call 980-343-6715.
Know your school bell times
Students should be in school and ready to learn when the school bell rings. View the 2017-2018 bell schedule.
Attend your school's open house
Click here to find your child's school website. Open house dates and times are posted there when available.
