Military Kids Club (MKC) The CMS Military Kids Club will meet on Mondays and Fridays during lunch. MKC is open to all military student. Students may bring a non-military friend to meetings if they wish. It's a great place to eat lunch together, meet some new people, engage in some activities, and check in with each other with our MFLC, Leslie Ray.

Attendance: We are committed to improving attendance rates across CUSD and Coronado Middle School. Each student is expected to be “in class, on time.” This is not only a legal requirement; it is also in the best interest of the student’s academic and personal development.  

Our attendance policy (in accordance with Ed. Code 48205) stipulates that absences can ONLY be excused for the following reasons:  personal illness; health department quarantine; medical, dental, optometric or chiropractic appointments; attendance at funeral services for an immediate family member; jury duty or any other court order requiring a personal appearance such as a subpoena; exclusion for failure to present evidence of immunization; observance of a religious holiday; attendance at a SART or SARB (Attendance Review) hearing.

If your student must be absent from school please contact our school attendance office FIRST THING IN THE MORNING at 522-8921 x3096.  Automated calls will be going out each day to inquire after absent students whose absence has not been cleared.
