Steps to take to become a CASD Volunteer

Absence Policy Notice

An absence note must be turned in within three days of an absence, per district policy. Failure to submit an absence note will result in the absence being marked illegal. Absences will not be excused if the note is received after the three day window. Please adhere to this policy and remember attendance is important. Students learn and grow academically when they're in school. Please make every effort to have your child at school on time and only keep them home when they are ill.

Rules for Visitors

Per recommendation from the PA State Police, it will now be required for any parent visiting/volunteering at the school to bring their photo ID to the main office in order to get their badge and proceed to their destination.
