Chancellor Charger Weekly Update
News You Can Use for the Week of January 4, 2021
From the Principal
Greeting Chancellor Chargers,
Happy New Year! I trust that your break was restful. As you are aware, SCPS will begin the second semester, starting on Monday, January 4th, and continuing through Friday, January 15th in a distance/virtual learning mode. Students will learn from home and there will be no bus service. We will be following the regular schedule with all students having virtual synchronous classes on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Wednesday will be an asynchronous learning day where students will have assignments to do on their own and teachers will be accessible during set office hours. Students will still need to sign in on Wednesdays. All students are being asked to fill out an online attendance form (found here) within the first 10 minutes of every class for every class that they have. The attendance form can also be found on the CHHS Student Dashboard as well as teachers' classroom webpages. Parents and guardians, thank you so much for your support and patience as we continue to navigate through this unprecedented time. Have a wonderful week.
Leading the Charge!
Cassandra Crawford, Principal

Favorite Class Challenge:
In an effort to help you all with scheduling this year, we are trying something new... #FavoriteClassChallenge. We are attempting to have students make a 60-second video about their favorite elective class...What is it? Why should someone take it? How does the class prepare YOU for your future plans?
