  • The Athletic Director will use the athletic roster to email CKM staff for dismissal. The swimmer will remind their teacher at the start of the class period of the time of early dismissal and will be released only at the designated time. Swimmers may not leave their class earlier.
  • Parents: if your child is marked absent and they were involved in a meet-related dismissal, please call the CKM Attendance Office at (916) 264-4401 ext. 1010 or 1011.
