Morning Drop Off Reminders

School begins promptly at 8:30 am. Please plan ahead and allow for traffic.


If you are dropping off in the student parking lot, please use the entrance on Nicolas Rd., drop off along the curb, and exit out through the Winchester Rd. exit (near the pool). The parking lot exit gate on Nicolas closes at 8:00 am. Trying to exit out of the gate on Nicolas after 8:00 am will cause delays and a backup to our morning traffic flow.


Other drop off areas include the visitor lot loop (no parking) and in the back loop near the stadium / entry from Roripaugh. Please DO NOT enter, park or drop off in the staff lot in the back.

Dress and Grooming

Here are some guidelines and tips from our updated TVUSD Dress and Grooming Policy (AR 5132)


TVUSD Dress and Grooming Regulation (Please click on the link for full description).


Temecula Valley Unified School District believes that appropriate dress and grooming contribute to a productive learning environment. Student attire and grooming must permit the student to participate in learning without posing a risk to the health or safety of any student or school district personnel. The school district is responsible for seeing that student attire does not disrupt school activity or contribute to a hostile or intimidating atmosphere for any student.


1. Students must wear clothing including a shirt with pants or skirt, or the equivalent (for example dresses, leggings, or shorts) and shoes.
2. Clothing shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments and buttocks. No underwear, undergarments, or clothing that is comparable to undergarments (e.g, bathing suits that resemble the same coverage of an undergarment) may be visible at any time. Clothing may not be see-through or mesh if underwear is visible underneath.
3. Attire may not display images that are violent and/or depict drugs, drug paraphernalia, alcohol, or promote any unlawful act. Additionally, attire may not contain imagery, words or acronyms associated with hate speech, profanity, pornography, or any promotion and/or endorsement of violence, alcohol or drug use.


CHS is looking forward to inspiring, supporting, and fostering the learning experiences that your child will have this year. As always, we appreciate our partnership with you as we begin the 2022-2023 school year.

Cell phones and Earbuds in Classrooms

Cell phones and earbuds are NOT allowed in classrooms during targeted instructional time. This is a school - wide expectation. This will help improve student attention and focus in class.

Student Devices

Please make sure to bring a fully charged device and a compatible charger each day. Students will continue to use apps and Canvas at various times while in class.


You can bring your own device to campus. Please do so under the BYOD policy. BYOD Tips (Click Here).


If you do not have a device to bring to school and have not already checked one out from the library, please come to the library before or after school (8:00 - 8:30 and 3:30 - 4:00). If you need technical support or login information, please email Mrs. Gandy at cgandy@tvusd.us.

Canvas

We will continue using Canvas as our learning management system. Students use the LMS to access course information and activities both in and out of the classroom.

Access to Canvas (Click Here)


Your teachers will be using their Canvas classroom. You will see tiles in Canvas for each of your scheduled courses. This week, you will also find a Puma Pride Class of 2023, 2024, 2025 & 2026 tile on your Canvas page. The Class tiles will be used during intervention and will also be used as communication for students and parents in each grade level. Login and check it out!


Canvas Troubleshooting Tips for Students

Canvas: Parent Account Information

The following links give parents and guardians all they need to create a parent account within Canvas and to link that account to a student account. These links are also on our district parent tech support page. We hope our CHS parents find these links useful in supporting student work.


Infinite Campus

Just a reminder that we are still using Infinite Campus for student grades. Please make sure to continue checking IC for the most current and accurate grade throughout the semester.
