Does a parent have to go through the CMCSS volunteer training in order to go on a field trip or meet their child at the field trip location?
Yes they do! All parents or adults chaperoning or just meeting classes at the field trip MUST go through volunteer training. Please contact Heather Sierawski at pisgahvolunteers@gmail.com for more information.

Do I have to have an official state or government issued ID every time I enter the school?
Yes! It is CMCSS policy that EVERY adult entering the building MUST have their ID on them and show it to building staff in order to enter the building, dismiss a student, go on a field trip, come for lunch, come for an awards ceremony, etc. The ID will be scanned into the RAPTOR visitor login system. The system will scan the barcode located on the back of the ID.
