Miller's Message

Greetings Longhorn Nation! We have been in school 8 days and scholars should be in a routine. Our counselors are working diligently to balance classes and fix scheduling errors. Please be patient as we work through this process with a tentative completion date of Wednesday.


Please take note of the following reminders:


  • We are aiming for 100% of our scholars to have a lunch application on file. Please complete the application today! Click the link to get started: https://childnutrition.chisd.net/
  • It is imperative that scholars arrive at school on time each day. Doors to the building open at 7:45 AM. The tardy bell rings at 8:15 AM. Scholars who are persistently late will receive consequences.
  • We have started processing ID pictures and will be completed by Wednesday. It is imperative that students wear their ID every day. Temporary ID's can be purchased for $1 daily. A replacement ID is $5.00
  • All scholars are expected to follow the dress code expectations. It is imperative that you are reviewing this document with your scholar. Please click the link for more information: https://www.chisd.net/domain/144

Bow Tie Tuesday

We are starting BOW TIE TUESDAY at Cedar Hill HS. The concept of Bow Tie Tuesday was originally created in an effort to inspire school spirit, increase morale and build team spirit among staff and students. Wear your bow tie every Tuesday! Encourage your scholar to wear them…. Let's build the Cedar Hill community together.
