GREAT JOB COYOTES!!
On Friday, November 22, 2019, Assistant U.S. Attorneys Don Pashayan and Thomas Forsyth, as well as DEA Agent Michael Brown will share potentially life-saving information with Combs High School students about the tragic impact of opioid usage, addiction and the increasing threat of fentanyl in our community. They will share real life examples of local cases in which teenagers and young adults have died after unknowingly ingesting fentanyl and other opioids. Their goal is to empower students with information that can help them avoid the very real threat of opioid usage, addiction and death.
If you do not wish for your student to attend, please have them stop by the counseling office to pick up the opt out form.
COMBS HIGH SCHOOL PRESCHOOL EVENT
Did you know? CHS has it's own TV/News studio! Our CTE track for Film and TV gives students the chance to plan, film, direct, edit, and present various segments that make up The Rundown, our own TV News show. Students who take this track have a great time learning about the TV and film world, and after 2 years can earn Adobe Certification in Premiere Pro, an industry recognized credential that effectively validates one's skills in Adobe Digital Media software, and opens up possibilities in various areas of TV and Film. Additionally, the investigative, planning, and organizational skills that students gain as they work through the Film and TV track give them an excellent advantage in whatever career they choose. Want to see our students in action? Be sure to catch the next segment of The Rundown!
