First Day of School and Morning Traffic

All students are to report to their first period class by 8:25.  There will be no zero period PE classes on the first day of school.

Parents dropping off their children in the school's drop-off zone should drive as far forward in the circle as traffic allows before allowing their children to exit the vehicle.  Do not drop your children off while in the traffic lane on Haggin Oaks as this impedes the flow of traffic. There are three alternate morning drop-off locations with walkways to the school located on Bridgeport Circle, Shorehaven Circle and Pasatiempo Street.

All Christensen families should have received their Infosnap snap codes via email or US mail this week.  If your family does not receive a snap code notification, either by email or US mail, please contact the CMS office at (925) 606-4702. Our office will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The school will have computer access for those families needing assistance.

It is mandatory that all parents complete the Infosnap update for each of their children, whether they are new to the district or returning. Only the primary parent/guardian will receive the notification. If a secondary parent or guardian would like their emergency contact information on file with the school, they may submit a completed emergency card to the school office. Students with incomplete emergency contact information will not receive their schedules at Orientation Day on Tuesday, August 15, until their information has been updated.

Thank you for your assistance.

CMS Summer Mailer 2017


Dear Christensen Middle Students and Family Members,

During Christensen Middle School's 2017-18 school year, registered students will be eligible to receive a free Student Transit Pass - a Clipper Card that provides unlimited access to LAVTA Wheels bus services. These passes are being distributed as part of the Student Transit Pass Pilot, a three-year effort sponsored by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) and funded through Measure BB, a local transportation sales tax measure.

Christensen Middle School is one of fifteen schools in Alameda County that will participate in this program during the coming year. The pilot program is expected to run from August 2016 through July 2019.

To obtain a free Student Transit Pass you must complete and sign the registration, consent, and release form (see attached document). Students under the age of 18 must have their parent or legal guardian complete and sign the registration form as indicated. Once the form is submitted and verified by school staff, students will receive a Clipper card within 3 weeks.

Return the completed form at school registration. You may also submit a completed form to Ms. Michelle Gomes in the front office beginning the first day of school. Copies of this registration, consent, and release form will also be available at school registration and at the front office. If a student loses their card during the school year, it can be replaced. For additional information, please click HERE or on the document below.

Questions may be directed to Mrs. Michelle Gomes at Mr. Joey Goldman at

Principal Transportation Planner
