ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL UPDATE
Dismissal continues to improve daily. This is to take some time to provide reminders and update on our arrival and dismissal. Drop off in the mornings is working pretty well with two lanes moving forward. To keep this going, please help with the following: -- When you get into the parking lot pull all the way down as far as you in the lane you are in. -- Make sure your child/children are ready to get out of the car (have all of their belongings in their hands and ready to step out of the vehicle as soon as they open the door. Backpacks, notebooks, jackets etc in hand. -- Only cross from the left lane when cars in the right lane are not moving to exit. Pick up in the afternoon is more challenging, thank you to everyone for your patience. Rest assured that staff member outside are trying to make this as smooth as possible for everyone concerned. There are hundreds of cars trying to pick up their children at the same time. This week, dismissal has concluded by 3:15pm. Additional lane will be added to make two pick up lanes, one express lane in coming days. We will continue to work to speed up the process and ask for continued cooperation. Here are some things you can do to help: -- Do not arrive at the school way ahead of time, arrive at school close to dismissal time. This removes the accumulation of traffic for extended periods of time and the inconveniences to our business neighbors. -- While in line waiting to get into the lot pull as far over to the right as you can so the people who work or are making deliveries in this area can still get by. We are sharing the roads with them and attempting to get everyone where they need to go. -- Pull all the way up in lane as you wait for your child, this allows more vehicles off the street. -- Do not block the road in front of the school or businesses, both while trying to get into the parking lot or by parking in the fire lane out front. This makes it harder for everyone to drive respectfully. Leave room for vehicles to get by or into the various parking lots. -- The transport vans/buses are parking in the alley behind the school and they should be the only ones back there. If you child rides a transport bus have them proceed to the vans/buses as soon as they are able. Students should not be boarding Vans/buses on the street. -- Advise all scholars to remain on CMIT South MS/HS property, do not encourage students to walk off the property. CMIT South MS/HS has no jurisdiction beyond its property cannot monitor students beyond the property. -- Appreciate the efforts of those who are volunteering to help by being respectful and following the traffic pattern.

STUDENT SAFETY DURING PICKUP
During the pickup period in the afternoon, some students have been directed by their parents to walk off CMIT South MS/HS property in order to meet parents on the streets. Please note that this not a safe practice and is strongly discouraged by CMIT South MS/HS. CMIT South MS/HS does not have enough personnel to supervise your students once off property. This is a highly risky practice that endangers your child's safety. Please instruct your children to remain on school property at all times. CMIT South MS/HS will not be liable for any issues resulting from this dangerous practice.

Academic Integrity lesson
As part of college and career readiness, CMIT South MS/HS is starting the new school year by ensuring that our students understand what Academic Integrity means as it relates to the tasks assigned to them in all classes. Lessons to be delivered in the Social Studies class will include modules on plagiarism, citations, types of sources, source reliability, summarizing and paraphrasing and ultimately presenting ones own original ideas. Please note that this is not only a CMIT South MS/HS requirement but college and workforce requirement. CMIT South MS/HS teachers will not give any credit to student work lacking in academic integrity. Please help to stress the importance of this as student begin their scholarly work this school year.

Free and Reduce Priced Meals

Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) is pleased to offer a time-saving, convenient online application process for Free and Reduced-Price Meals (FARMS). Previously, parents had to complete a paper application and return to it their child’s school. For their convenience, the new online application streamlines the process and can be completed from any computer with Internet access.

Free or reduced-price meals are available to students based on household size and income. To view income eligibility guidelines, click here. Benefits expire each year so families must reapply to ensure students continue to receive meal benefits. Students are automatically eligible for free meals if their family receives assistance under the Food Supplement Program (FSP) or Temporary Cash Assistance (TCA) benefits.

Please use the link below to apply for Free and Reduced-Price Meals. For details on the application process, visit the PGCPS Department of Food and Nutrition Services website, or call 301-952-6517.

10th Grade RELA
Welcome back parents and students! I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer. We have completed two tests, pre-SLO and MAP-R, over the past two weeks. I will share student's test scores in SchoolMax within the next couple of weeks. This quarter we are reading "Enrique's Journey" by Sonia Nazario. "Enrique’s Journey" recounts the unforgettable quest of a Honduran boy looking for his mother, eleven years after she is forced to leave her starving family to find work in the United States. The students will have a class copy of the novel for classroom use only. Students will be expected to read independently at home too. I have shared a PDF version on Edmodo. I look forward to another amazing year here at CMIT South! Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.

ANNOUNCEMENTS & REMINDERS
CMIT South Testing
Welcome Back! I hope that you all had a wonderful, restful summer because as you know testing has already begun. In the beginning of the school there are a lot of pre-assessment activities taking place, so your child is telling the truth when he/she says, "I had another test today." Each teacher is responsible for his/her own pre-assessment that ties to their evaluations at the end of the school year in addition to district tests like MAP-R. MAP Growth Reading is taken on a computer and is used to determine each student’s instructional level. The assessment will also allow schools to measure individual academic growth in reading. Your child will take the initial MAP Growth Assessment during the week of September 10th , a second administration in the Winter, and a final administration in the Spring. MAP Growth is a computer-adaptive assessment that adapts to your child’s level of learning and measures specific areas of reading such as Literature, Informational Text, Vocabulary Acquisition and Use in grades 2-10. Our school has also brought MAP-Math and we will also test their mathematics skills. Coming down the horizon, 11th graders who have a GPA of 2.5 or higher will have the opportunity to take the Accuplacer test for Dual Enrollment toward the end of September. I will provide more information next week. 10th and 11th graders will be taking the PSAT/NMSQT on October 10th. Booklets have been passed out to all students to help them prepare for the test.
