Todd's Tidbits

Hooch Community,


We are so appreciative of the high level of attendance and engagement that Chattahoochee students showed this week. Let’s keep it up! Our staff worked tirelessly during the extra pre-planning time to put the finishing touches on their TEAMS sites, thinking/planning for innovative ways to use video and document cameras, and to make a pacing that seems doable for them and the students.

I do realize that there are some issues with workloads in some classes and the possible need to adjust “bell” schedules or course workflow and we are prepared to adjust accordingly.

I thank you in advance for your continued patience and support of YOUR school; OUR school; Chattahoochee High School!

Dr. Mike Todd
