Capital High School Newsletter
Capital Parents and Families,
Meet Hazel! Capital’s 2020-21 Make-A-Wish kid. She is currently in remission from a cancer she battled at the age of 18 months, and will continue to have a tough road ahead of her.
Last summer her and her family went camping and she fell in love with the outdoors. Her wish is for a camper so she can enjoy camping at a moment’s notice.
In the past fourteen years our Capital community has raised over $50,000 for Make-A-Wish. We need your help to keep the tradition alive and strong. Please consider donating to Hazel and other critically ill kids.

STUDENT DROP OFF & PICKUP ZONE
Attention Parents & Students, the student drop off zone is in the East Parking lot.
Parents and Students will no longer be able to drop off/pickup students at the front of the School, due to continued issues with buses not being able to gain access to the bus pickup/drop off zone. Please help keep the drop off area running smoothly by pulling all the way up to the student entrance double doors near the south end of the east student parking lot.
Thank you for all your help with this matter
