CHS Weekly Update - October 3, 2021

First, I would like to thank everyone for how we finished out the week. Our school overall was much calmer and more conducive to learning after Tuesday. Again, I remind all students of our expectations for their behavior.

Next, as we approach the end of the first quarter, I would like to remind all students of the JCPS attendance policy. Students who accumulate more than 4 absences in a class for the quarter will receive a failing grade for that class, UNLESS, they are granted an attendance waiver. Waivers will be available for requests beginning next week. Absences that are excused due to illness will be automatically waived, but again, all students who accumulate more than 4 absences in a particular course will have to have an approved waiver request. Those who need to make up unexcused absences can do so in our Evening Academy which runs from 2:30 - 5:30 Monday - Thursday.

This week, we will launch our club schedules with a rotation of clubs on various days. Each day will feature a group of clubs that will meet. Students who are not in clubs during that time will remain in the assigned block and will have time for completing make up work or receiving additional content support from their teacher. One note for those with late arrival, this means that on Monday, late arrival students should arrive to campus at 8:50 as 2nd block will begin at 9:00. Also, students with Early Release after 4th block will leave at 12:30 instead of 12:15.

Finally, this week is one of the best traditions we have at CHS - Homecoming Spirit Week! The spirit wear themes for each day have been posted on our social media sites and sent out via email. Our traditional homecoming parade will leave CHS on Tuesday evening at 6:00 and travel up Fayetteville Street, down Main Street, come back up 2nd Street, and return back to the school. We hope all of our Comets in our community come out to support our students in the parade. The CHS PowderPuff game will follow at CHS on Tuesday at 7:00 PM. Tickets to attend the event are $5 and will be purchased at the gate. Throughout the week, there will be class spirit competitions for students to take part in and we will conclude the festivities with the Homecoming Pep Rally on Friday morning and the presentation of the Homecoming Court at halftime of the game on Friday night.

Thank you for your continued support and for being Comets ALL In
