2016 - 2017  Academic Year updates and reminders

  • Welcome back! We are looking forward to starting another school with our CHS community. Please see the following highlights of our Code of Conduct, the full document is attached below. 

  • CHS offers many opportunities for students to get any extra help, or make up work. We have a unique opportunity for students, called 5th block. Students may be assigned to this block, or may stay voluntary to meet with teachers, make up work after absences, or get individual attention to support classroom instruction. 5th block is from 2:15-2:45, with transportation home provided at 2:45 (Monday through Thursday). 5th block is HIGHLY encouraged for all students to stay for individual attention and help in all subjects.

    We also offer the "After School Supervision Center" (ASSC) every school day from 2:50-5:00. Students can read, use the computers for school work, collaborate with others for projects, and complete other class assignments. Transportation is also provided at 5:15 for all students Monday through Friday. 

This year, we will continue to use the BYOD (bring your own device) policy at the High School. Students are reminded that we have a "Responsible Use Agreement" at CHS. Our students are expected to protect their individual user names, passwords, and devices from theft or misuse. 

 

Cell phones are also allowed in certain areas of the building according to the new policy. The school has three different zones for cellular device use. 

 

Red Zone - cellular devices are absolutely not allowed (examples: restrooms, locker rooms, hallways, etc.).  
Yellow Zone - cellular devices are allowed at the teacher or supervisor's discretion.  Students are expected to ask the teacher for clarity and permission. 
Green Zone - students are free to use their cellular devices responsibly (example: cafeteria). 

 

Students, parents, and guardians are reminded that CHS has a dress code. Major points of this dress code include: clothing must be safe and appropriate, and not disrupt the educational process; underwear of all kinds must be completely covered; hats, bandannas, hoods, head coverings are not allowed (except for medical or religious purposes); clothing must not be vulgar, obscene, discriminatory or promote the use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs; skirts and shorts must be at least as long as the student's fingertips when hands are extended down the side while standing straight and shoulders are relaxed; straps on all tops must be at least three fingers in width. 

Students are allowed to carry clear, plastic water bottles with them. All other beverages are not permitted. 

We will also continue our "no bag" policy. To ensure the safety and security of our students and staff, no backpacks, purses, or string bags are permitted during the school day. Students are expected to deliver their bags to their lockers and store them throughout the school day.

Please view our academic eligibility policy using the link below.
