Important Announcement

October 17, 2014

 

Dear Parents:

 

Carmel High School is committed to the education of students, not only on the academic level but on both social and emotional levels as well.  We believe in educating the whole student and have therefore planned a series of school-wide assemblies that address issues that students face every day.

 

The first assembly planned will take place on Wednesday, November 5th, 2014.  Carmel High School will be hosting speaker Traciana Graves and her “Say Something Beautiful” campaign.  These assemblies specifically address bullying, acceptance, and intolerance.  Information about her and the campaign can be found on her website: http://saysomethingbeautiful.com/.

 

Because we are committed to this topic and feel that every grade and every student should attend, it is necessary to dedicate the whole day to the assemblies; therefore classes will not be in session.  An overview of the schedule for the day is outlined below:

 

6:45 am – Juniors and Seniors report to school regular time.  Regular bus transportation will be provided.

7:05 am – Juniors and Seniors will report to Assembly Homerooms and attendance will be taken.

7:30-10:30 am – Assembly in the Gym with breakout sessions/discussion groups afterwards in Assembly Homerooms.

10:45 am – Juniors and Seniors will be dismissed.  Bus transportation will be provided.

10:30 am – Freshmen and Sophomores report to school on a delayed schedule.

Bus transportation will be provided on a delayed schedule. 
Students should report to their bus stops approximately three and a half hours later than normal.

10:45 am – Freshmen and Sophomores will report to Assembly Homerooms and attendance will be taken.

11:10 am – 1:50pm – Assembly in the Gym with breakout sessions/discussion groups afterwards in Assembly Homerooms.

1:50 pm – Freshmen and Sophomores will be dismissed.  Bus transportation will be provided.

 

Please note several specific items:

 

  • Assembly Homerooms will be posted in advance throughout the school so your child will know where to go. 

     

  • We will not be sending students to BOCES, as we feel it is important that all students attend the assembly
    with their grade level.

 

  • There will be no food service provided in the cafeteria.   

 

We appreciate your support with this important initiative.  If you have questions or concerns, please call or email
Mr. Fink at the high school. 

 

Thank you,

Louis T. Riolo
