Students, the Student Access Portal on the Qmlativ system is now open and operational.  This portal can be accessed via the front and lower left corner of the Cougar website.  Please go to the directions section and review the screen shots first to familiarize yourself with the system.  Then you can click on the Qmlativ site immediately below the directions to access the system using your username and password. 


Your username will be your full and complete first name, middle initial, and last name … all in lower case with no spaces.  Your password is the same password you utilize to access your folder and stored information here at Central.  You can access the Qmlativ system anywhere that has internet access through the front page of the Cougar website.


We encourage you to view the Qmlativ system with your grade and attendance information as soon as possible.  You can always refer back to the directions for assistance.  We also encourage you to discuss this with your parents since they have had access to the system already.  Having a dialogue with your parents regarding this information is a good thing.  If you have difficulty with the system or have questions about your grades, please see one of your teachers.


We certainly want this system to give you as students direct information on your grades and attendance.  The “Q is for you”!


Cougar Parents:


As the seasons advance toward winter, the possibility of a school cancellation for inclement weather increases.  We want to remind you that a school cancellation for Central Community High School will be announced using the automated Skylert message system.  (There will be no email message utilized on these occasions.)  On school cancellation days you can expect to receive a phone call at approximately 6:00 A.M.  On some severe weather occasions, the school cancellation decision is made the night before and a broadcast message will typically be launched before 10:00 P.M.) 


We will also advertise school cancellations on television channels FOX 2, KMOV 4, and KSDK 5 in addition to radio stations KMOX (AM 1120), MAX (FM 96.7), WGEL (FM 101.7), and WDLJ (FM 97.5).  The media sources will identify Clinton County Schools” or the “Clinton County School Consortium” on their broadcast which includes Central Community High School. 


If you have not been receiving our Skylert messages at the correct number, please contact us at 526-4510.  It is important that we have up-to-date and accurate phone contact numbers in our system to ensure all parents are contacted.  If you have any questions regarding school cancellations or the Skylert message system, please contact us at 526-4510.
