HAWK NOTES                                                              

Every minute in class counts and Cedarwood is ramping up efforts to help students be in school every day.  All CUSD sites will contact parents if their child has an uncleared absence from school using the District’s automated notification system. Now, if your child is not in school and we have not yet heard from you, an automated call will be placed to notify you of the uncleared absence.  It is our hope that these calls will allow us to connect with parents more quickly when a child is not in class, ensuring the safety of our students.


When receiving a call from the automated system, parents will be able to leave a message notifying the school of the reason for an absence, but must remember to always end their recording by hitting the pound (#) sign.  This action will save your message to the attendance system so that it is accurately delivered to the attendance office.  You can also continue to call 327-6000 to notify the school of your child’s absence.  Thank you for helping us maximize our students’ time in class!




Cedarwood is a No teasing/ No Bullying campus. Parents please continue to talk with your children about the importance of always using kind words and speaking to others as you want them to speak to you.

On January 15 the Clovis Unified Governing Board accepted the recommendation of student members of the Inter School Council and the administration to end its seasonal restriction on the wearing of shorts by students. Members of the Board, in approving this recommendation, affirmed their continued support for the safety and behavior standards set by the District’s dress code; while agreeing that the area’s mild temperatures and the existing provision for allowing shorts during portions of the school year made this slight revision sensible. All other elements of the District’s dress code remain the same. With the Board’s decision, shorts will be allowed beginning January 21st. Please contact the site administration for clarification or additional information
