With the turning of the calendar page to December, it is our hope at CHS that all of our students, families and school community were able to enjoy a happy and restful Thanksgiving break and are ready for the final preparations and excitement of the upcoming holiday season. This year, we held virtual parent/teacher conferences. So far the feedback has been great and we had better than expected participation from our parents. It was so nice to see all the parents who were able to attend conferences. Thank you for your participation in helping us to build strong relationships between home and school.
The end of November brought with it an adaptive pause, during which all of our students were remote learning during the week of November 30-December 4. The district announced the end of the adaptive pause effective after December 4. Please remember that hybrid (in-person) learning will resume as it was previously starting on December 7. We do ask that parents continue to diligently monitor students’ symptoms and report any student who is symptomatic or has been in close contact with a confirmed positive Covid case. Your partnership is essential to keeping our students and staff safe!
As we move along in the upcoming month, teachers and students will continue to work toward a strong finish to our first semester. Semester one ends on December 18. We are happy that our students and staff will be able to shut down and enjoy a much needed break. Additionally, we will not be running a final exam schedule this year. Many teachers are opting for an alternative to a final exam. Make sure to check with each teacher as to what types of projects or assessments will be due by semester’s end.
Finally, as December can tend to come and go like a whirlwind, I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the entire staff at Central High School to wish you and your family a safe, restful, and enjoyable holiday season! The holidays have been very different this year amidst the pandemic and uncertainty which accompanies it. That being said, we encourage all of our students and families to find time to relax and reflect on good in our lives. It really is what makes all the difference.
