Senior Project Parent and Guardian Presentation

Tuesday, Sep. 19th, 6pm

351 Pleasant Lake Avenue

Harwich, MA

Parents of seniors must attend this informational presentation! Students are highly encouraged to attend with their parents. Here you will find out the requirements and due dates for your student as they embark on this exciting project. There will be a brief presentation and the opportunity for parents to ask questions. Parental support is key to the success of our Seniors, and success in Senior Project is a requirement for graduation. We encourage parents of all Seniors to attend. The meeting will be held in the Performance Space on the second floor of the school.

Some parents and guardians have inquired about attending tonight's meeting virtually, or having access to it after the fact. In order to accommodate that request, we are offering the option of attending tonight's Senior Project meeting for parents EITHER in-person or through Google Meet. Here is the link to join the meeting:

Senior Yearbook Photograph Info

Senior pictures are due by November 7, 2023. The date is important because of the deadlines we are given by the Yearbook printer. Late pictures are defined as any picture turned in after 5:00 pm, November 7, 2020. For seniors who do not submit a yearbook photo, their Lifetouch picture will be included, if appropriate.

The goal of the Cape Cod Regional Tech Yearbook is to have the student’s face as the focus of the picture as well as to keep a similarity amongst the senior portraits.

Student Dress Code In order to create a positive environment conducive to learning, students are to be appropriately and neatly dressed. If a student’s general attire or appearance represents a danger to his/her health or welfare, or attracts undue attention to the extent that it becomes a disruptive factor in the school, the student will be asked to make necessary changes. Repeated infractions will be subject to discipline. Each shop has the right to establish footwear, dress, uniform, hair and jewelry standards as prescribed by written policy. Failure to follow shop or school dress code may result in disciplinary action. Parents may be called to bring in clothing items for the student to wear. 1. Clothing which feature offensive and/or vulgar words, pictures or drawings or phrases of a sexual nature or that have derogatory language regarding a person’s ethnic background, origin, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or disability is not permitted. 2. Clothing which represents any group, gang, organization which advocates violence is not permitted. 3. Clothing which features alcohol, tobacco, weapons, or illegal drugs is not permitted. 4, The wearing of clothing which is unduly revealing, ie: tank tops, exposing undergarments, short shorts, and short skirts is not permitted. Leggings, tights, yoga pants and any other extremely form fitting apparel are considered an accessory and must be worn with dress/skirt or shorts. Hat/Hood/Headwear Policy As part of the school dress code, students are not allowed to wear hats, hoods, or other headwear in any school building during a regular school day from the opening of the building in the morning until the conclusion of the school day unless otherwise instructed by the administration or shop teacher. Upon entering the building, the student should remove his/her hat or headwear and properly secure it either in his/her pocket, backpack or locker. Students who forget will be given a reminder. Students who continually disobey this rule will face consequences according to the Students’ Code of Conduct, possible confiscation of unauthorized headwear may be required and will require retrieval from parent/guardian.

* no watermarks

Decisions for inclusion will be limited to the Yearbook Adviser, and Principal.

Students may choose any photography studio to have their pictures taken. It is the responsibility of the student and/or parent/guardian to make sure that the picture submitted meets all of our requirements in order to be included in the senior portrait section.

The Yearbook staff members and adviser are not responsible for any photo edits that may be needed on submitted pictures in order to meet stated rules for acceptance. The staff and adviser reserve the right to crop pictures for space and content.

Cape Cod Tech has a very clear cell phone policy. This year we are again making a point to include parents and guardians in our efforts to develop a professional atmosphere as we set our expectation of not using cell phones in class or shops. Technical programs will be holding and securing student phones for the day in order to keep the temptation of using the phone in the work setting. Academic classes will provide students with a safe place to store their phones during class. We expect students to adhere to these steps and policies to ensure they are not distracted from learning in the classroom or shop. We also expect it to have a positive effect by limiting negative social interactions via phones. We are extending this to smartwatches as stated in the student handbook. Employers expect employees to refrain from using their phones while "on the clock." It is our job to prepare students for the workforce and their future. Please support us in this effort.

Summer Reading

Please click here for your student's summer reading assignment. All incoming 9th grade students need to read one book. All incoming 10th, 11th and 12th grade students need to read two books.


Ninth Grade Parent Night

Thursday, Sep. 14th, 6pm

351 Pleasant Lake Avenue

Harwich, MA

This evening will offer ninth grade parents an opportunity to walk through your student’s schedule and hear a presentation on key topics so that you can support your student in their education. This is a scheduled event and we ask all parents to arrive prior to 6:00 pm so that you do not miss the opportunity to meet your student’s teachers or hear any of the important presentations. This meeting is essential to all parents of ninth graders.

Financial Aid Webinar

Attendance Matters

The state expects a 95% rate for student attendance. We want to achieve a higher rate for the year. We can do this, but students need to come to school everyday. Over the last two years our attendance policy has been more lenient than in the past. This year we will be re-instituting the policy to the fullest extent. Our expectation is that you will follow future employer's expectations. Remember, your boss will expect you at work everyday, and so will your co-workers. Build healthy habits now. Come to school because we want you here!


If a student is not present in the class/ shop at the time attendance is taken in the morning, they will be marked tardy and will have to report to the main office for a tardy pass. Accumulation of excess tardies as defined in the student handbook will result in disciplinary action. Being on time is an employability skill. Cape Cod Tech not only trains students in skills specific to their technical area but CCT also teaches professionalism and employability skills to the standards of the industries in which they represent.

Please see below a quick link to our attendance policy as well as other important information about attendance.

Attendance, Tardy, and Dismissal Policy

Need a locker?

Students needing a locker can come to the Main Office and see Ms. McLoughlin. She is Mr. Consalvi's Secretary. Lockers will be assigned upon request.
