Welcome to 2023 - 2024!
Parents, we are off to an amazing start! It was great to see your child last week.
Last week, your child received his/her student ID, lanyard, and plastic case. Your child is welcome to use any school-appropriate lanyard other than the one that was provided for free. Please help remind your child to wear his/her lanyard every day. Thank you for your help in ensuring a safe, productive campus!

Reporting an Absence
Parents, if your child will be absent, please:
Report absence by emailing CHSattendance@columbusisd.org. Include your child’s name, grade level, and reason for absence.
Send a note with your child upon his/her return to school. Include doctor’s notes upon your child’s return.
Picking up your Child During the Day:
Students should bring their parent note to the Attendance office before school begins. Students will then receive a pass to show their teacher when it is time for them to leave.
If students do not turn in a note at the beginning of the day: Parents, please email the Attendance Office at CHSattendance@columbusisd.org at least two hours prior to sign out. Parents are welcome to call but an email must also be sent for documentation purposes.
If your child returns to campus, he/she must sign back in through the Attendance office so your child can be properly coded.
If your child is 18 years or older, he/she may sign himself/herself out of school. If the 18 year old student signs out, the student may not return to campus the same day without a medical note.
Arriving Late (after 8:15 am)
Students will sign in at the Attendance Office and receive a pass to class. Please turn in a parent note or doctor’s note at this time.
