Welcome Back

Dear CRHS Students and Parents,

The smell of fresh wax on the floors and the crisp sound of boxes of supplies being opened and inventoried tells us summer is almost over and the school year is closely upon us! We are very excited to welcome our students back for the 2022-2023 school year!

Please review the information in this August update to prepare for the new year! Emergency forms are updated online, see the link below for directions. Powerschool is your friend! If you don't have the PS app on your phone please download it! We also encourage our students to use the PS app to keep up to date on their grades! If you need PS login information please email your child's counselor. Schedules will be live on PS Monday, August 29th.

Back to School Night Open House will be on Monday, August 29th from 6:00-7:30 pm. Students can get their schedules, meet their teachers, and pick up their yearbook if they ordered one from last year. Schedules will also be available on Powerschool the week before school starts. Students can attend Open House anytime between 6-7:30 pm.

Please feel free to email or call if you have any questions or concerns. We will share more information as we get closer to the start of the school year!

School Supplies

There is no "supply list" for High School because every student's schedule is so different. A few days before school starts teachers will email students any supplies they will need specific to their class. In general, a notebook and folder for each class as well as pens and pencils will be helpful. Laptops, as well as laptop contracts, will be distributed during the first week of school.

Parking Permits

We are requiring students to have their service learning hours completed again for parking permits! Make sure you have all of your service learning hours! Email Ms. Reed or Mrs. North to find out how many hours you need. Summer is a great time to earn any hours needed! Parking permit information was emailed to juniors and seniors from Mr. Oberdorf our Dean of Students. You will need to provide a copy of your driver's license, insurance card, and tag number. Please see his email that was sent to students on 8/24/22 below for more information.

Good afternoon!

I wanted to send out information in regards to parking passess for the 2022-2023 school year. Please see the link below in this email to access the Parking Permit Application.

New this year: Service Learning Hours: Seniors must have 75 hours of service learning to obtain a parking permit. Juniors must have a minimum of 60 hours of service learning to obtain a parking permit.

Along with the completed driver application form, the student must attach a copy of their license, insurance information, vehicle registration and the parking fee of thirty dollars ($30).

The $30 fee can be paid on back to school night. Mr. Oberdorf will have additional parking applications available.


Parking permit applications are linked in students' emails or available on our website:


It's important to know that lunches are no longer free for everyone, the National School Lunch Program waiver has expired. Parents/Guardians can apply for free lunch at this link.

To put money on your lunch account please log into your my school bucks link.
