School Safety

La seguridad de la Escuela

La seguridad y el bienestar es lo más importante para la escuela de CHS. *** Cualquier estudiante queriendo salir de la escuela después de que ha empezado el día tendrá que ir a la oficina para poder salir. Los estudiantes solo pueden salir con el permiso de su padre/s ; guardián (no importa la edad que tenga el estudiante). Los Padres o guardianes podrán

retirar a su hijo en persona o llamando con 24 horas de anticipación para una cita médica programada previamente. Para circunstancias atenuantes, se puede hacer una llamada telefónica de los padres el mismo día, pero se necesitará la aprobación de un administrador antes de que el estudiante abandone la escuela.Los estudiantes que faltan por causa de cita de médico, tendrán que traer la nota del doctor cuando regresen a la escuela.

Precauciones de seguridad adicionales

  • Todos los estudiantes entrarán y saldrán por las puertas de enfrente (AM & PM)

  • Los estudiantes tendrán que traer todos sus materiales que necesitan para el día por la mañana, no podrán salir a su coche durante el día para ir por algo que no tienen. Que entren preparados con todo.

  • En la hora del almuerzo, los estudiantes se mantendrán comiendo en el comedor, ya nadie podrá almorzar en las mesas de afuera.

  • Todos los estudiantes tendrán que traer su tarjeta de identificación visible todo el día.

  • Cuando un visitante llegue a CHS, tendrán que mostrar una identificación a la cámara ANTES de entrar al edificio.

  • Si un familiar viene a dejar un almuerzo , tendrán que entrar al edificio con identificación. Ningún estudiante está autorizado a salir al parqueo por el almuerzo. Si no está dispuesto(a) a entrar al edificio con identificación a dejar un almuerzo, mejor no lo traiga.
