CTHS News

October 25,2020

Dear Families,

Thank you for your patience as we work together through this school closure. The CTHS staff worked hard this week to develop common expectations for remote learning during short term building closures. You will find information regarding our student expectations for these closures, end of quarter announcements, and other important information below.

Safety is our number one priority at this time. We are aware that a big part of our student safety is their mental well-being. At CTHS our goal is to provide the best possible remote learning plan we can by developing an experience that mimics their in-school schedule by time and expectations. We want every student to be able to interact with their teachers and peers each day as they would if they were in person. We realize the amount of time that interaction takes place has to be cut and the workload for classes needs to be reduced. However, we must move forward as a school with daily instruction and learning.

If you have any questions regarding remote learning, any of the content in this newsletter, or anything else, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail me. Thank you for your support.


Sincerely,

Mr. Ross

Quarter 1 Report Cards

Report cards have been posted to ParentVUE and StudentVUE. If your student is concurrent with another school for a class, sports, or CTE class, you need to do the following to see report cards for each school.

See example below:

Choose the Quarter 1 drop down on the report card tab. If your student is concurrent, you will have multiple Quarter 1’s to choose from. Each Quarter 1 will direct you to a different school where you will be able to view and download a PDF version of your students report card. If you are still having issues with viewing report cards, please call Andrea Berg at 352-0427.
