Please take the time to read and review the three documents below, so that there is an understanding of the rules and regulations before the start school. You will be receiving an email from CHSAdmin with a questionnaire requesting that you fill in the fields and electronically sign that you have read and understand the three documents. This must be done by August 20th in order to receive access to your schedules on August 22nd.

Students who have questions or concerns regarding their schedules may contact their counselors in the following ways:

1) Students may contact their assigned counselor via email.  Email addresses can be found on the Counseling page of the CHS website.

2) Students may fill out a "Schedule Change Request Form".  Beginning on Monday, August 26th, these forms will be available outside the CHS library and may be dropped off in the bin for each assigned counselor. 

Counselors will also be available to meet with students during the first few days of school: 

September 3rd - 12th Graders

September 4th - 11th Graders

September 5th - 10th Graders

 Freshman students may see their assigned counselor beginning on September 3rd during their lunch period.

 As a reminder, schedule changes will not be made to accommodate requests for specific teachers or lunch periods.

Reporting Student Absences

Parents/guardians do not need to call to report student absences.  Every parent/guardian will receive an attendance call when their child has been marked absent.  Written notes are required from a parent in these situations:

  • Absence - A note from home, doctor, or medical facility should be brought in for an absence.
  • Anticipated Full-day or Partial Day Absence - a note from home should be brought in, in advance of the absence, identifying the specific reason for the absence.
  • Late Arrival - A note from home should be brought in with an explanation for the student's late arrival.

    All notes should be dropped off in the "Absence Notes" basket located in the CHS Main Office. 

  • Early Dismissal - A note from home giving permission for early dismissal, with the specific reason for the request, should be brought to the CHS Main Office Secretary and she will give an "Early Dismissal Pass" that will allow them to leave CHS at the time you designated.
