CHS is bringing back SR Walks. This is a time when CHS seniors are welcomed back to their LISD elementary campus to walk the halls, in their cap and gown, while the processional plays over the PA. Graduates are celebrated by their former teachers and future Mustangs as they make their way though the building and out the doors one final time. Parents may attend as long as they follow COVID safety protocols of LISD and individual elementary campuses.


Prom may look a little different this year, but CHS is beyond excited to host prom and welcome our juniors & seniors in their best attire for a "Night Under the Stars."
