Senior’s Yearbook Recognition Ad

Senior Parents,

It’s time to purchase your senior’s yearbook recognition ad! These recognition or senior ads are a great way for parents, families and friends to commemorate student achievements and important milestones. In addition, revenues from senior ads help our school to create a better yearbook.

You may purchase and create your ad online at www.jostensadservice.com. There you can choose your ad size and layout, enter your text and upload your photos as well as proof your ad. Jostens is managing all yearbook ad sales online, so please do not send materials to the school. Please take into account our school's ad content guidelines on the bottom of the attached form during the creation of your ad online.

All ad orders must be placed by 11/26/2018. This deadline ensures that yearbooks are completed, printed, bound and shipped to the school so that they can be ready for distribution to students in mid-May. This deadline will not be extended.

Please remember, the cost of the ad listed on the flier does not include the yearbook itself. Please purchase the yearbook along with your advertisement directly from the Jostens web site. (You can do so after creating your senior advertisement by clicking “continue shopping” and “2019 yearbook.” The final checkout page will then include both the yearbook and the advertisement.)

More information on ad creation and pricing can be found in the attached document. Please contact yearbook adviser Natalie Brown at Natalie.brown@southlakecarroll.edu with any questions.

E-cigarette Tip Sheet for Parents

Talk with your teen about E-cigarettes and their risks. Before the talk know the facts, be patient and ready to listen by avoiding criticism and encouraging an open dialogue. Remember that your goal is to have a conversation not deliver a lecture so it is OK for your dialogue to take place over time in bits and pieces. Finally set a positive example by being tobacco-free, for help visit smokefree.gov or call 1-800-QUIT-NOW.

Keep the conversation going and for more information and tips go to https://e-cigarettes.surgeongeneral.gov/documents/SGR_ECig_ParentTipSheet_508.pdf

The goals of the #SAFEdragon program are to improve safety and security within Carroll ISD and promote emergency preparedness among students and staff. Remember when visiting our campuses to always enter through the main offices so we can properly sign you in and print you a badge. Students should never open the doors for anyone, not even friends. Be a #SAFEdragon!

If you need a replacement ID you must go to the counseling office for a replacement at $10. Please do not open a door for a student without an ID as you’re threatening the safety of all students. In addition, do not hold doors open as all students should have ID’s on them at all times. If you do not have an ID outside of the building you’re welcome to come around to the front office where they will identify you for entrance into the building. Please be cognizant of your safety and all student safety going forward.

Student ID Badges

CISD Student ID’s are issued only once during your 4 years at Carroll/Carroll Senior High. DO NOT discard your current ID, if you do and you need a new one, the cost to replace your ID will be $10.00. Please see the Guidance Office for replacement if you are at the CHS campus. Students at CSHS should see Mrs. Cranford in the Library.

Verification of Enrollment is required for students getting a permit or license. There is a sign-up sheet in the front office. If you sign in before noon, forms can be picked up by 3:21 pm, after noon forms can be picked up the next school day. Forms are good for 30 days.


We offer AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITY PASSES (at no charge) for students who, after their last class of the day, need to be transported to the other high school for a school sponsored sport or activity. This pass may be obtained by picking-up an application from the CSHS or CHS office. Once completed, it must be signed by the coach or sponsor of the activity or sport and returned to the office. All students must then sign the bus rider contract. Passes will be available for students to pick-up at the office within three (3) school days. Students must present their pass to the bus driver each time they need to ride or will not be allowed to ride. This pass is not necessary if the student has a valid annual or semester bus pass. Please note that misuse of the pass will require immediate forfeiture of the pass and it must be used for transportation to school activities only.

2018-2019 Bus Passes

Bus passes are available for purchase online or at the CISD Administration Center. Individual bus passes are $275/annual or $148/semester, and family bus passes are $550/annual and $296/semester. All bus riders must have a current Bus Rider Contract form signed by a parent or guardian and turned in with the Bus Rider Registration indicating they will abide by the Bus Safety Handbook.


Nurses Note

Students are not allowed to carry medications (over-the-counter or prescription). You may keep medications in the nurse's office for daily or as needed administration. Please be sure medicine is in original container, not expired, and has a signed MAR. Prescriptions also require a doctor signature. Inhalers, epipens, and diabetic supplies are the only exceptions to the carry policy, but the student does have to turn in the MAR and documentation from the doctor saying it is OK to carry. Please label these medications with student name. Also, the nurse is unable to dispense medicine, even Advil or Tylenol, unless it the student's own medicine brought in specifically for them.

As the year goes by, if you are cleaning out your closets, and you have t-shirts, athletic shorts, or sweatpants you are getting rid of, please consider donating them to the CHS clothes closet for students’ use when dress coded or need to change clothes for various reasons.

Thank you for your help!

9th & 10th Grade students must enter classrooms by 8:00 am when classes start. All students must sign in at the attendance office if they arrive at 8:01 am or after. Late students must have a doctor's note, parent call or parent note letting attendance know that they are aware that their student was tardy.


9th Grade students. Parent/guardians of 9th graders must physically sign their student out at the attendance office for early dismissal. If someone other than a parent/guardian is picking up a student, that person must be listed on the family's emergency contact list located in Family Access. Parents/guardians must contact the attendance office if a person - not on their emergency contact list - is picking up their child. The office is required to make a copy of that person's driver's license in order for the student to be released and that person needs to sign the student out.

10th Grade. As we know, many of our 10th graders drive, therefore they are permitted to sign-out with the attendance office for an early dismissal provided parents/guardians have notified the attendance office in writing. The note from parents requesting an early dismissal must be dated/signed and dropped off at the attendance office first thing in the morning. We will then provide the student with a pass to return to the attendance office at the early dismissal time to sign-out and exit the campus. If your 10th grader is returning that day, please ensure they sign in at the attendance office upon return so their attendance record will be noted properly.

FYI, For our students’ safety, it is important that they sign in when arriving late or sign out when leaving early. Students who do not comply with this safety measure will be referred to the Assistant Principal’s office per the CHS Handbook.
