Parents,

  • Picture Retakes for scholars and teachers that were absent will take place on December 1st. Please be in uniform (Grades 6th-10th); details are below.

  • Admin is asking for candy to continue to reward scholars. Scholars can bring snacks to the front office and receive volunteer hours. Make sure to fill out the volunteer form.

  • Parents, scholars are asking to bring a festive touch to our campus and earn volunteer hours for decorating. If you are interested in helping, please use the Sign Up Genius to share the items that we need to decorate the campus. We want to celebrate around the world. (https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A084EA9AB23ABF85-campus) We can return the trees to the parent if desired. Please have items at the campus by December 1st. Scholars will help decorate on December 2nd after school. We will have another signup genius for 20 scholars to participate and receive two hours after school.

COVID-19/Quarantine/Extended Absence

Make sure to notify teachers and the campus nurse if your scholar has been exposed, tested positive, quarantined, or has an extended absence due to medical needs. If your scholar is under doctor's care for any reason, please share that documentation with our nurse. We want to make sure your scholar is marked appropriately for attendance and receives support for missing assignments.

*Make sure scholars bring a bottle of water or a reusable water bottle. We have bottle stations in the building for scholars to use for reusable bottles. We are grateful for the support.


I appreciate your commitment to your scholar's education.

Early Release

Please refrain from blocking the bus passing lane. We also need parents to come no later than 3:00p for an early release of scholars. We begin dismissal at 3:45p, and buses will arrive as early as 3:15p. This may increase difficultly in exiting the grounds if you are picking up scholars after 3:00p.

The district's mobile app is the most effective tool for parents, scholars, staff, and other community members to gain immediate access to critical information, including school closings, COVID-19 updates, weather notices, and much more. Since the app is designed specifically for CHISD, it also extends our district brand through the iTunes® and Google Play® app stores.


Be sure to select Collegiate Academy and Collegiate High School in the app when choosing schools to follow.
