CPR for seniors
Welcome to Year 5 of CPR at JCHS!
All seniors at Joseph Case High School will complete CPR training in conjunction with Swansea Ambulance Corps December 12-18 to fulfill our graduation requirement for CPR certification. Case was the first high school in Massachusetts to make CPR a graduation requirement. Senior students (as well as Child Care II juniors) will report to the band room instead of phys ed and directed study for the next five school days.
No Senior Privilege during these five days for CPR students ==> it will resume on December 19.
