For Immediate Attention - Verification of Newsletter/Directory - REQUIRED for Schedule Pickup
Published: Tue, Aug 15, 2017, 11:53AM CDT

CMSE PTO sends out a newsletter every week with information of all things related to school. Most of the time this is your only source of information about events at East.

We need you to verify that your address is accurate. We need you to complete this step before your schedule pick up this week. Only families who have verified their information by this process can proceed to schedule pickup. In order to help make the process smooth, we request you to take care of this step. This Needs Your Immediate Attention.

Please verify that the information CMSE PTO has for your family is correct by clicking your name in the yellow box below. (If the yellow box below says “Thanks, you’re done!”, then you do not need to verify again. If it says “Input needed”, you’ll need to verify.)You will be directed to a page that lists your family information and asked to verify its accuracy. If it is not accurate, you will be asked to correct the information. You will also be able to indicate if you prefer NOT to be listed in the student directory.

Updating the CISD Parent Portal is NOT the same thing as verifying your information with CMSE PTO. CISD cannot share your personal information with PTO.
