Off to a Great Start!

Thanks for a great start to the school year. We are blazing a trail with remote learning! We are posting helpful tips and tricks on our CRHS 2021 Canvas page that you can access asynchronously.

Let us know what we can do to support you. There is no school on Monday, September 7, 2020. Have a good Labor Day weekend!

Schedule Changes at the start of the School year

As we start the school year it may be necessary to adjust student schedules. This can be because of an error in a schedule (like not having a 3rd period class), a request to change levels, or to reduce class size.

If a schedule change is necessary, we will notify students of the change by email.

When a schedule change is made, please make sure you follow your updated schedule. This will help avoid any attendance problems, as attendance is based on your current schedule.

If a schedule is changed, that adjustment happens automatically in Skyward. However, other programs like Canvas and Google Classroom can take a day or two (sometimes up to 48 hours) to change to the update. If you are having problems accessing your classes due to a change, please email your teacher for access to Zoom links and assignments.

We realize that sometimes students do not want their schedule changed and we work to make sure we are honoring student course requests from the spring as much as possible.

If you have a question or concern about your schedule you can complete this form to let us know.

Thank you for your flexibility and learning side by side with us in this first week. We know we have an amazing year ahead of us and look forward to continuing to partner with you.

Take Care,

Alex Otoupal
