Building Hours

A reminder to everyone that our school doors open at 8am and learners need to be out of the building by 4:45pm (unless staying with a club and the sponsor is present). We will go over this and other safety info during our grade-level meetings as a part of your First Week Projects.

Drop Off and Pickup Loop

Parent drop off loop is on the North side of the building (where the faculty parking lot is). Please utilize this loop only, as the front is our bus loop. This year especially, our buses will be running more frequently and we do not want our learners to be late to their classes because the buses can't get through the loop.

First Day of School

We can't wait to have everyone back on Wednesday, August 14th at 8:50am.


Things to know about the first 3 days of school:

As is custom, we will start the first three days in First Week Project groups. Rookies and Sophomores, your rosters are in Ms. Batik's email that contained the link to this newsletter. Juniors and Seniors, your rosters will be available in this newsletter on Monday. Please come to school ready on Wednesday with your laptop! For those of you new to our school, you will still go to any CHS or CHS9 classes during those scheduled times, you just won't go to your regular classes when you are on the NTH@C campus.


If you start at CHS or CHS9 for 1st period, please go directly there on the first day of school. Reminder to all learners that wearing your student IDs are an expectation at all high school campuses. If you did not get one printed at schedule pick up, please make sure you utilize your trust card until you can get that. Trust cards will be handed out the first day of school in First Week Project groups.


Classes will start at 8:50am each day the first week. We will not start our Friday 9:00am school start until Friday, August 23rd.
