From the Principal

Dear Cardinal Family,

This past week has been fast and furious as teachers and staff prepare to welcome back our students. They have been hard at work learning, training and preparing their classrooms. All of us at CHS can't wait for August 18th, as we believe this year promises to be the best year yet!

Many students took advantage of schedule pick-up this past week. Remember, all students must have proof of residency on file to receive their schedule. On the first day of school, if a student still has not submitted their proof of residency, they will be housed in the library until their parent brings up a document that will serve in this capacity. We do NOT want any student to miss out on all the great information that is provided in the classroom during the first day of school, so please make sure you have submitted a current utility bill, lease agreement, or a voter's registration card as proof of residency.

Below is the corrected Columbus ISD School Calendar. Please note, there are now three early release days. In addition, I have left the CHS bell schedules and CARDS Behavior Matrix on this edition of Cardinal Chronicles, as those documents provide essential information to get the school year started right!

Finally, don't forget school starts 8.18.21, and students may enter the building at 7:36 a.m. We can't wait to fulfill our vision at CHS. We want students and teachers alike to: LEARN WITH PASSION, ACT WITH COURAGE, AND CHANGE THE WORLD! #EverUpwardCardinals

All the BEST,

Mich Etzel

Important Athletic Physicals Information for Cardinals

For the 2021-2022 school year, the UIL has returned to the normal requirement of all athletes, grades 7-12, needing an updated pre-participation physical (PPE). Physicals will need to be completed and on file with the Athletic Training staff ASAP (athletes may not participate until the physical is on file) for students participating in a sport starting prior to the first day of school. All other athletes will need to have their physical on file prior to the first day of school.

Athletes will need to turn in physicals to the athletic trainer, Lexie Ramirez.
