Letter from Mr. Jacopetti

The CHS doors will open for students on 8/31/20 at 7:50am for free breakfast and homeroom will begin at 8:10am. Be sure to bring a face covering, your school issued computer and a positive attitude.  Anything else such as school supplies is encouraged but not required on the first day.

We will begin school with a two hour homeroom period in which myself and our staff will help ease the transition back into school. This period will consist of introductions, rules review, locker orientation, a virtual assembly promoting “The Warrior Way”, computer orientation and anything else that our staff can do to help you get ready for the new school year. Following the two hour homeroom, students will follow our two hour delay schedule to complete their school day.  In the meantime, please be sure to view the student orientation videos for 7th grade, as well as, 8th-12th grade that are available on our CHS webpage. 

Our staff Is committed to providing a safe, positive and rigorous learning environment. This year has offered some more difficult challenges but we are confident in our plan and can’t wait to see our students!
