Junior ACT Score

As juniors learn the results of the ACT Exam that was taken on March 1st, many parents may be wondering "what do the results mean?" To learn more about your students ACT scores, click on the link below.


Using Your ACT Results

Nine-Week Exams

Students in grades 7-12 will be assessed using nine-week exams at the end of each grading period as opposed to a semester exam. Test Weighting – The value of a nine-week exam will be equal to the test of the greatest weight in the same quarter in a particular class. Therefore, the weight of the exam will vary between teachers but will more closely correspond to the weight of other tests given in each individual class.


  • Monday, May 23rd - 7th period Exam
  • Tuesday, May 24th - 2nd, 4th & 6th period Exams
  • Wednesday, May 25th - 1st, 3rd and 5th period Exams

Zero Hour

CHS Zero Hour, 7:50-8:25 AM, M-F, was added to the CHS daily schedule a few years ago. Its purpose is to help your student be successful! This time should be utilized by students to ask questions, finish homework and/or makeup work quizzes and tests they may have missed due to absences or other school activities. If your student is failing a class, then he/she should be attending Zero Hour for that particular class in an effort to raise the grade.

Parking Passes

Parking Passes purchased online can be picked up during Zero Hour (7:50-8:25) and both lunches. Students needing to purchase a parking pass can still purchase it online, or may do so in the front office, but you will need to get the parking pass form in the office before buying one filled out and signed by parents during Zero Hour and both lunches. Passes are $25. If you have a parking permit and you get to school late you may have to park across the street in the sophomore parking lot if no spots are available in the main parking lot.

Top 10 Announcements for Seniors!

1. 2022 CHS Graduation

The countdown to Cabot High School’s graduation is on! Seniors who have met all graduation requirements will walk across the stage at Simmons Bank Arena, May 20, 2022, at 7:00 p.m. to accept their diplomas. For all of the graduation details, please on the attachment. If you still have questions after reading all of the information, please contact Angela Beason, graduation coordinator at angela.beason@cps.k12.ar.us.



2. Final Transcripts - IMPORTANT!

Most colleges, universities and vocational schools require a final 8 semester transcript that includes the graduation date from high school. Seniors should fill out the online transcript request form on the main CHS webpage NOW asking for it to be sent to the institution of his/her choice. Students should also consider signing the bottom of the transcript request to allow a parent/guardian to come in at a later time and request transcripts if needed. This is very helpful if a student moves away or transfers schools. If a parent/guardian does not have consent to request a transcript, the student is the only one who can access that information.



3. Graduation Dress Code for Seniors

Students are to wear only caps and gowns approved by CHS administration. Graduation attire is to be worn as it is designed to be worn (caps on top of the head, robes zipped, etc).


No adornments other than school-issued collars, stoles, cords, and
medallions are to be worn with caps and gowns.This means that you cannot wear stoles and cords that are awarded by outside groups like your future college or career or that are awarded by groups outside of Cabot High School. Cords and stoles that are worn at Cabot High School graduation should represent your accomplishments at Cabot High School. Honor Grad Stoles will be distributed at graduation practice once final grades have been calculated. Cords are distributed by individual sponsors. Please reach out to your club or organization sponsor for more information about a cord. Caps may not be decorated.


Student Attire – In addition to caps and gowns, graduates will wear clothes appropriate for this dignified occasion. Appropriate attire is expected. To conform to the dress code, the recommended apparel is as follows:


Girls – Dress, skirt, or dress pants and blouse, dress shoes (black, navy, white, or beige are all acceptable colors). If wearing a dress or skirt, please make sure that it is no longer than the hem of your graduation gown. If wearing dress pants please choose a dark solid color (black or navy). Avoid high collared dresses or blouses that would show above the collar of the gown.


Guys – White shirt, dark slacks, dark tie, black or brown shoes and
socks


Prohibited Dress Items – athletic shoes, flip-flops, jeans, shorts, tshirts, athletic apparel, decorated caps or gowns, sunglasses, blinking shoes, etc. Girls will NOT wear the white collar included in their gown package.


If students need assistance in acquiring appropriate attire for graduation or if you have any questions about your attire, please see Mrs. Beason or your counselor.



4. Cap and Gown

All students should have made arrangements for a cap and gown at this point in the school year. Students can still order a cap and gown by going to Josten's website listed below. Students who can not afford a cap and gown for graduation should see Angela Beason, their school counselor or a trusted teacher.

5. April 18th & 19th

CHS Seniors will be given college visit days on Monday, April 18th and 19th. Seniors should use these 2 days to visit colleges/vocational programs, finish their Free Application for Federal Student Aid and complete the application for the Arkansas Challenge Scholarship. However, seniors who have attendance issues may be required to come those two days. Assistant Principals are currently making contact with those seniors who must attend on those two days.



6. Arkansas Lottery Scholarship

Seniors are eligible for the Arkansas Lottery Scholarship if they have a composite score of 19 on the American College Test (ACT). Students should have already applied or be in the process of applying for this scholarship now, and the deadline for application is July 1, 2022. Below are a few tips about this scholarship.

  • The Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) must be completed as a part of the lottery scholarship. Even if the student does not or will not qualify for federal aid, the FAFSA still must be completed to receive the Arkansas Lottery Scholarship.
  • Once the application for the lottery scholarship has been completed, it is very important that students check the email account he/she used when applying. The student should receive an email listing the status of the scholarship. The email might indicate more or specific information is needed to complete the application.
  • If the email says "Pending Acceptance," the student must log on to their application and formally accept the scholarship. Students who neglect this step, will not receive the Arkansas Challenge/Lottery Scholarship.
  • To learn more about the Arkansas Scholarship Programs, criteria for application and the award amounts click on the link. AR Scholarship Programs for HS Seniors

8. Career Search

  • The Arkansas Department of Workforce Services (ADWS) is a great resource for students who want to get a job after high school. ADWS can be very helpful when searching for employment opportunities and job fairs. Some individuals choose to earn a Career Readiness Certificate which can help them find higher paying jobs. To learn more, click on the link. ADWS


9. The Final Countdown!


There are 39 days to go until CHS Graduation! The last scheduled day for CHS Seniors is May 12th, provided that all coursework is complete, and all required classes have a passing grade. Seniors should start turning in library books and taking care of any cafeteria charges or any unpaid fees. It is time to start wrapping up those loose ends at CHS!

Student Athletes

To learn more about NCAA and the student registration process, click on the link below.

CHS Check Out Policy

  • CHS students will be allowed to check out with a parent/guardian note only. A parent/guardian phone number will need to be included on the checkout note for verification purposes.

  • ***No phone call checkouts will be allowed because of safety concerns.

CHS is a closed campus and we strongly discourage students from checking out at lunch. This typically causes unnecessary tardies and classroom interruptions. If a student is checking out at lunch, a parent/guardian must physically come in and sign the student out and them back in from lunch.

Only a parent/guardian is allowed to drop lunch off for a student. If a parent/guardian is dropping off lunch for a student, there will be a table (outside the office) with a sharpie for the students name to be written on it. Students should know in advance that lunch is being dropped off to them.
