Senior IGP conferences started on September 5. Please remember to use Calendly to reserve your appointment slot with your school counselor. Refer to the email sent by Dr. Forrest to find your appropriate Calendly link.

Did you know that juniors and seniors are allowed three college visit days each school year? If you make arrangements to visit a college, please don't leave your tour without a note from the admissions office that verifies you were there for a tour. Return that note to attendance, and the visit does not count as an unexcused absence! Please contact your counselor if you have any questions.
Also, many colleges visit CHS yearly. If you can't visit the college in person, take advantage of our College Cafes in the main cafeteria! Be on the lookout for more information on these visits through email from Dr. Tims.
The deadline to change classes has passed. At this point, students may not change classes without penalty.
