School Safety

School safety is always on our minds and is our top priority. Thank you for partnering with CPHS to keep our students safe. If you have information or concerns about student safety, please contact us via phone/email or make a report using the link below.

Safe schools anonymous tip line - If you see or hear something, say something.

Safety Reminders for Students

Students should report to a teacher, counselor, administrator, or any adult in the building if there is a safety concern. It is always better to overreport and be on the safe side.

During school hours (7:00 a.m. to 2:37 p.m.) hats and hoods are not allowed to be worn in our building. This is so that all students can be identified. This is also a part of the CPHS dress code.

Student drivers must remain cautious in the parking lot and near the school. Please remind students to drive slowly and follow the directions of our police officers. All student drivers must have a parking pass displayed in their vehicle while in the CPHS lot.
