Dear Parents/Guardians & Students,

Open House Nights are just around the corner!
6th Grade WEB Orientation:  Wednesday, August 23rd 1:00 – 3:30 (Students only) Parents join your child after.
All Student Orientation:  Wednesday, August 23rd and Thursday, August 24th from 3:00 – 6:00 pm

Because of the higher volume of 6th grade students that will be attending their WEB orientation on Wednesday, we highly encourage 7th and 8th grade parents to come after 4:30 pm on Wednesday or attend on Thursday.


We do want to make you aware of some remaining Dome construction that will be ongoing over the next couple of weeks, including orientation evenings. Attached is a map with the areas highlighted in yellow that will be open for parking. It is important that we follow these for the safety of everyone coming to our Open House nights! The bus loop will be open for parents to drive through, but due to the construction area we have marked off one side of the loop as a pedestrian walkway where people will not be allowed to park. La Academia (former Chaska Elementary) has a newly finished parking lot that is highlighted, once the front and side parking lots at CMSE are full this will be your best option for parking.

Although weather has put the dome construction a bit behind schedule, we know the short-term inconveniences will be worth the wait. Every student in our building will benefit from our added space in the dome, and our future parking will be much easier with the addition of 100+ new spots in a lot yet to be constructed behind our building.
Please don’t hesitate to call (952)556-7600 with any questions.
