MTMS Verified Entry System

With the goal of increased security, Cadillac Area Public Schools will institute a verified entry system at all K-8 CAPS school buildings during school hours.  Beginning on Monday, February 2, 2015, visitors to Cadillac Area Public School Buildings will be asked to "request entry" through a "security buzzer" entry system.  Similar to a doorbell, the buzzer is located at the main entrance of each building and visitors will be asked to verify their identity and purpose of their visit prior to being admitted to the building.  Here at MTMS, you will find the button to request entry to the right of the main entry doors.  Please press the button and wait a moment.  If we have not responded in 2 minutes, please press the button again as our Administrative Assistants may have missed your call.


After entering the building, you will be required to sign in at the office and wear a visitors badge while on the premises.  You are asked to sign out prior to leaving the building.  The purpose of the verified entry system is to better monitor visitors in our buildings during school hours at Cadillac Area Public Schools.  Thank you for your cooperation as we all become familiar with the new entry procedure.  Patience and feedback is requested as we institute this safety measure.  It is a program that has been successfully used in schools across the country and one additional step to monitoring guests in our buildings as a safety measure for our staff and students.  Your child's safe learning environment is one of our highest priorities.  Thank you for your support and understanding. 

Attendance Line

If your child is absent from school please call our attendance line 231-876-5603 as soon as possible on the day of the absence.  You can call the attendance line at anytime.  For preplanned absences please send a note to school.

School Closing and Delays

You can find out school closings and delays by checking the calendar or going to the homepage.  You can also receive an e-mail or text as soon as we have school closing or school delay information.  Visit the following link:   Look for the snowflake to sign up for this service.More
