As we move closer to the beginning of a new school, I want to continue to keep you in the loop of information that will support the readiness of your child. Some of you have missed calling posts, as information in our system is missing correct information. Please assist us at the beginning of the school year with updated contact information. We want you to always be informed and engaged in our work.

I am excited that we have organized our school to be more student-centered and parent friendly. We intend to give students a glimpse of their schedules and review pertinent information regarding their success during this time. We will discuss program changes and improvements to our school. We look forward to sharing the many updates that we have during our Grade-Level Meetings:

Important Parent Engagement Dates

Senior Academy July 29, 2019 12:00noon
9th Grade Academy July 29, 2019 6:00p
10th – 11th Grade Academy August 1, 2019 5:00p – 7:00p
Parent Meet and Greet August 1, 2019 5:00p-7:00p (General Information Only)
Please plan to attend these meetings to support your child’s success. I reiterate that parent engagement is essential to our success!

As a reminder, our students will NOT be in uniforms this year. We will have a general dress code! I am advising that we intend to enforce the current policies to be fair to all of our students. We understand that there has been a lack of fidelity and consistency in enforcing the policy in the past. I want to encourage parents to have the conversation with our students to keep us all on the “same page”. You may visit the front page of our web site for details. As we move through the year, CCPS Administrative Teams will review, survey and make the appropriate recommendations for any changes to the uniform policy for high schools.
We are here to support you and your child. Help us make your child’s academic journey a success.
