Ready or not, here comes the 2019-20 school year! It’s an exciting time for new beginnings. At CHS, we are continuing our journey with a digital environment. We have implemented a 1:1 initiative by providing every student a Chrome Book to use in all of their classes and classroom teachers are becoming more experienced in getting students prepared for the future by integrating this technology into each lesson daily. We also have at CHS a daily Advisory Period. Our Advisory Period is a daily event in an effort to provide additional enrichment and interventions to address the needs of all of our students for approximately 21 minutes in the middle of the day. We have recently added tutoring each week before and after school in the library media center on Wednesday’s in case your son or daughter would like additional help with a subject area they may be struggling to fully comprehend with a core classroom teacher from each discipline area of study present to help where needed.
Fall sports practices begin on August 12th. Our coaches will be closely monitoring the athletes to avoid heat injuries and have all been through CPR and first-aid training. Coaches will stress hydration and will monitor the workload during the hottest times. Student athletes should check with their coaches for practice times and any other information they need. Schedules for contests for all sports can be found on the “CHS Athletics” page on the Chillicothe R-II website. (www.chillicotheschools.org)
We are looking forward to a great school year. Communication between parents and the school is vital. Please utilize the school web page and app. for school information, sports schedules and other calendar issues. Athletic schedules can be found on the CHS Athletics web page under “printable schedules.” We encourage all parents to sign-up for text-casting through the Hornet Alert link on the district website and for the SIS Parent Portal, also found on the district’s website. We would also like to invite everyone to the Meet the Hornets and our CHS Open House on August 19th. Please feel free to contact the high school office with any questions or concerns you may have.
