Weekly Update for December 6th - December 11th, 2021

We look forward to this last week of classes and learning as we prepare for the end of the semester exams. All days this week will utilize our normal schedule with the exception of Thursday which will be for 5th block clubs. Schedule information is in student emails and on our website.

Students who have missed more than 4 days in any of their classes must request an attendance waiver in order to receive their numerical grade for their course for the quarter. Attendance waivers are all online and must be requested by the end of the day on Tuesday, December 14th. Information regarding the waiver process can be found on this document. Medical and parent documentation for absences must be submitted to the main office or via email to our registrar Lynn Rodgers at lynnrodgers@johnston.k12.nc.us by Friday, December 11th.

As a reminder, this is the last week of the Evening Academy which will run Monday - Thursday from 2:30 - 5:30 for students to make up work, receive additional teacher support, and to make up excessive absences. Students must sign up each day to attend the Evening Academy and attendance is limited so students must sign up as soon as possible. Students that sign up and then do not report will not be allowed to sign up again without administrative approval.

The fall exam schedule is posted on the CHS website. Students should direct any questions about their individual exams to their teachers. All students need to take advantage of these days to prepare the best they can for the exams which represent 20% of their overall course grade. When students have taken their final exam in the course, the course has ended and any student absences thereafter are waived. Students should direct any questions about their individual exam schedule to their teacher.

In regards to exams, all students who have been issued Chromebooks will need to bring it fully charged each day in order to take their exams.

Finally, the CHS SGA is sponsoring a Holiday Week of Cheer this week. The themes for each day are:
Monday - Holiday Pajama Day
Tuesday - Tacky Holiday Sweater Day
Wednesday - Holiday in July week - wear holiday beach attire
Thursday - Favorite Holiday Movie Character Day
Friday - Holiday Dress up - Santa, reindeer, elves, etc.
