NINE-WEEK EXAMS (GRADES 7-12)
ALL Students in grades 7-12 will be assessed using nine-week exams at the end of each grading period as opposed to a semester exam. Test Weighting – The value of a nine-week exam will be equal to the test of the greatest weight in the same quarter in a particular class. Therefore, the weight of the exam will vary between teachers but will more closely correspond to the weight of other tests given in each individual class.
SENIORS – The Cabot Scholarship Foundation will award over 100 scholarships to Cabot High School seniors for the 2021- 2022 school year. Scholarship funds are donated by individuals and businesses and each donor sets specific criteria for their scholarship. Scholarships are available for seniors planning to attend two and four year colleges, technical schools, vocational schools and certification schools. (This includes specialty schools such as Cosmetology, HVAC and Welding.) Some scholarships are based on financial need, while others are not. Some of the scholarships are available even if you are planning to attend school out of state! Therefore, ALL seniors should apply! One application will allow students to be considered for all of the local scholarships.
The application will be available December 3, 2021 via seniors’ school email and in the CHS Student Success Center. Students will download and save the form, complete the application, print it and turn it in to the CHS Student Success Center with the essay(s). The deadline is January 18, 2022, 3:30 pm.
The majority of CHS Students will not need a schedule change for the spring semester. However, if your child is needing his/her schedule changed please encourage them to pick up, fill out and turn in a Schedule Change Request form to the CHS Student Success Center by December 13, 2021. This will ensure that your child's schedule is ready to go when school starts again in January. Schedule Change Request forms turned in after December 13th may have to be processed when school resumes in January.
CHS Zero Hour, 7:50-8:25 AM, M-F, was added to the CHS daily schedule a few years ago. Its purpose is to help your student be successful! This time should be utilized by students to ask questions, finish homework and/or makeup work quizzes and tests they may have missed due to absences or other school activities. If your student is failing a class, then he/she should be attending Zero Hour for that particular class in an effort to raise the grade.

Student Success Center Sessions
The CHS Student Success Center is offering a variety of help sessions for students throughout the school year. If your student needs help registering for the ACT or preparing for the ACT, he/she needs to see Mrs. Kim Passini in room 1105 to determine days to meet during Zero Hour. If your student wants to go to college and will be the first in the family to attend college then the "College? First Generation College Students" is perfect for your student. Please encourage your students to take advantage of these Zero Hour sessions.

CHS Check Out Policy
CHS students will be allowed to check out with a parent/guardian note only. A parent/guardian phone number will need to be included on the checkout note for verification purposes.
***No phone call checkouts will be allowed because of safety concerns.
CHS is a closed campus and we strongly discourage students from checking out at lunch. This typically causes unnecessary tardies and classroom interruptions. If a student is checking out at lunch, a parent/guardian must physically come in and sign the student out and them back in from lunch.
Only a parent/guardian is allowed to drop lunch off for a student. If a parent/guardian is dropping off lunch for a student, there will be a table (outside the office) with a sharpie for the students name to be written on it. Students should know in advance that lunch is being dropped off to them.
Save these in your phone in case you or a friend should ever need them.
