Ready or not, here comes the 2021-2022 school year!  It’s an exciting time for new beginnings.  We are looking forward to a great school year at CHS.  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 SIS Parent Portal, also found on the district’s website.  This will allow you to view your student's grades, attendance, and see any school related fees that are owed.  We would also like to invite everyone to the Meet the Hornets and our CHS Open House on August 23rd.  Please feel free to contact the high school office with any questions or concerns you may have.

Fall sports practices begin on August 9th.  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.
