CHS Weekly Update - 11/6/22

This is a quick reminder that Bandanas of any kind, ski masks, gaiters, and other complete face coverings are no longer allowed at Clayton High School, and you will be asked to remove them if you are wearing one of these on school campus. If you choose to wear a mask, it must be an N95 or any other medical-grade cloth mask. Faces are not allowed to be completely covered according to JCPS board policy. Thank you for your help in this matter.

Also, students are expected to dress in clothing that is appropriate for school. According to the CHS student handbook, clothing must be age appropriate, must not be disruptive to the teaching-learning process, and cannot be provocative, revealing, indecent, vulgar, or obscene, and those types of outfits will not be tolerated. Shirts and blouses must cover the waist & midriff, and must go past the waistline. If in doubt, don’t wear it. Students will be warned and asked to comply if they are in violation of the dress code. Further infractions will result in disciplinary action, up to and including possible suspension.

On Monday, PreACT Makeup testing will take place in the cafeteria between 7am and 11am. We will be on regular schedule on Monday, but bells will be TURNED OFF in the building as to avoid a potential testing misadministration. Teachers will have to look at their clocks and dismiss silently to avoid disturbing the testers in the cafeteria.

Next, this is a reminder that Tuesday November 8th is a required county workday for teachers, and there will be no school for students that day. It is Election Day, however, so please do your civic duty and vote if you have the chance and/or the opportunity.

Tickets are on sale for CHS's Fall Production, Peter and the Starcatcher! Join us for this hilariously charming and heart-felt prequel to the classic story of Peter Pan. Performances are Nov. 10-12 at 7pm in the CHS Auditorium. Tickets are available online or at the door! Also, Manning’s Food Truck will be parked in the courtyard on Thursday afternoon for “Dinner and a Play,” so come out and buy a delicious dinner from Manning’s before catching Opening Night!

On the athletics front, the winter sports parent night will be held in Adams Gym on Thursday night from 6-8pm. For more information, please reach out to your prospective coach and/or Comet Athletic Director John Asmussen.

Finally, Friday November 11th is Veterans’ Day holiday, and there will be no school for students or staff on that day. Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served in any branch of the military. For one day, we all stand united in respect for our veterans, and we thank you for your service.

We look forward to another great week in Comet Country as we continue to work hard to get the second quarter started off on the right foot. I thank you for your continued support and for being COMETS ALL IN.
