Curriculum Night

Join us for curriculum night! During this event, you will be able to complete a mini-day in the life of your student. We will have bells set and you will transition from class to class, starting with your students first block and ending with their eighth block. During “class-time” you will learn about the curriculum your child will be learning this year in that particular class. If you are joining us, be sure you have a picture of your student's schedule. We will be in the halls directing you from class to class. It will be a fun night!


CHS curriculum night will be held on Wednesday, September 8th from 6:00pm until 7:30pm.


CSHS curriculum night will be held on Monday, September 13th from 5:30pm until 7:00pm.

2021 Homecoming Carnival and Parade

2021 Homecoming is upon us and this year it is “A Green Carpet Affair” (think old Hollywood movies)! The CSHS/CHS Student Councils will join CISD in hosting the annual festivities at Southlake Town Square on Wednesday, September 22nd with the carnival beginning at 4:30 pm, the parade following at 6:30 pm and the pep rally on the steps of town hall at the conclusion of the parade.


CISD student groups (please feel free to share this with campus sponsors or PTO representatives) can register using the attached flyer – there are two QR Codes, one for the parade registration form and one for the carnival registration form. For parade registration, only one entry per CISD K-6 campus; all CISD student groups grades 7-12 are eligible to enter. CISD will assign registered groups a booth location in the carnival area, located in Rustin Park around the fountain area in Southlake Town Square. All forms are due by Friday, September 10th at 4:00 pm. Groups will not be allowed to register for either the carnival or the parade after September 10th. One member from each registered group must attend a mandatory event informational meeting on September 15th at 4:00 pm in the CSHS SAC.


We look forward to working with everyone again! Please let us know if you have any questions.


Thanks,

Students with classes that meet at the Senior High should report to the cafeteria for a study hall. Attendance will be taken.

Student ID Badges

All students must have their ID’s with you daily for entrance to the buildings as this is your key, the outside doors will be locked and not open for entrance without your ID. Badges will also be used in the library and in the cafeteria.


If you lose your badge and need a new one, the cost to replace your ID will be $10.00. Please see the Guidance Office for replacement if you are at the CHS campus. Students at CSHS should see Mrs. Cranford in the Library.

CHS LIMITED DOOR ACCESS

The only doors students will have ID badge access to enter the CHS Campus are:


Main Entry

A Hall Entry

Cafeteria Entry

E Hall Entry


Remember this is for student safety and to minimize entry points for CHS. Remember DO NOT OPEN any doors for students or adults.

Campus Logistics

Traffic

Please remember traffic is key for both CSHS and CHS especially with teenage drivers. On campus, traffic does begin to occur around 7:30am every single day. We would remind families any arrival after 7:30 would include each person encountering traffic until at least 8 am daily. After school, traffic will be especially tight at CHS. Any arrival earlier than 3:21 will cause campus stacking onto city roads. Please understand stacking onto the road will limit the transportation of emergency vehicles effectively to assist community members. Students are able to stay on campus until as late as 5pm. Please understand the south exit from CHS is a right turn only and we must remind all families to follow this throughout construction to provide students safety.


Crosswalk at Ascot and White Chapel

The crosswalk and associated signal Pedestrian heads have been moved to the north side of the Ascot intersection.


Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Please use only the North and South covered parent drop and pick-up areas for students. Pull all the way forward in the lanes on campus so more students can transition on campus at a time. The front circle is for bus traffic only and is not a student pick-up area or a drop off area. Do not load/unload on city roads, as this is illegal, or in neighborhoods for pick up as most of this area is private property.


Early Arrival

Please remember all early arrival students must enter campus safely and maintain safe distances from other students on campus. Both campuses are very open but remember teachers could be working on tutorials every morning with students and thus we do remind all students not to interfere with any classroom instruction.


Busses

Please yield to all busses entering the campus traffic patterns. Provide all students safety as these busses navigate our campuses.


Cell Phones

We are cell phone free when driving on any CISD campus. Please protect others and focus on the road.

Item Drop Off

There is a table at the front entrance of CHS where students can collect all items dropped off by parents. Please make sure any item dropped off is labeled with their name and your student knows to collect them. Please note that your student may not leave the building to collect items from your vehicle, these must be brought into the building and dropped off.

Closed Campus

CSHS and CHS are closed campuses and students may not leave campus during lunch.

Food Delivery Services

Food delivery services are not allowed on campus and delivery drivers will not be allowed into the building.

A Note from CHS Nurse Lambert

Nurse Lambert is asking for donations of gently used t-shirts, athletic shorts or sweatpants for her clinic in a variety of sizes. Donations can be brought to the CHS front office. Thank you for all you do!

Nurses Note

If you have not already done so, please update your student’s health history on Skyward. On CISD’s Health Services website, https://www.southlakecarroll.edu/Domain/48, you can find links for Action Plans for asthma, allergies, seizures, etc. as well as MAR forms. In the next week or two, I will begin screening for hearing and vision for students new to Carroll High School.


As a reminder, students are not allowed to carry medications (over-the-counter or prescription). You may keep medications in the nurse's office for daily or as needed administration. Please be sure medicine is in original container, not expired, and has a signed MAR. Prescriptions also require a doctor signature. Inhalers, epipens, and diabetic supplies are the only exceptions to the carry policy, but the student does have to turn in the MAR and documentation from the doctor saying it is OK to carry. It is best if medications to carry are labeled, too. Also, the nurse is unable to dispense medicine, even Advil or Tylenol, unless it the student's own medicine brought in specifically for them.


Thank you for your help!

Attendance

Arrivals

9th & 10th grade students must enter classrooms by 8:00am when classes start. All students must sign in at the attendance office if they arrive any time after 8:00am to receive a pass. If arrival is after 8:20am, the student is counted absent for the entire block. In this case, we must have a doctor’s note, a parent/guardian note or phone call to the attendance office notifying us that they are aware of the absence. If we do not receive notice, the student will be unexcused for the block.


Departures

9th grade students. Parents/guardians of 9th graders must physically sign their student out at the attendance office for early dismissal. If someone other than a parent/guardian is picking up a student, that person must be listed on the family’s emergency contact list located in Family Access. Parents/guardians must contact the attendance office if a person – not on their emergency contact list – is picking up their child. The office is required to make a copy of that person’s driver’s license in order for the student to be released and that person needs to sign the student out.


10th grade students. Many sophomores drive, therefore their departure policy is different from freshmen. With written parent/guardian notice only, 10th graders may sign themselves out for early dismissal. This parental note must be signed and dated and dropped off at the attendance office first thing in the morning. We will then provide the student with a pass so they can return to the attendance office at the early dismissal time to sign-out and exit the campus.


Absences

Please email Kathleen.Carrabine@southlakecarroll.edu or call 817-949-5609 to notify us of any absences for your student. If the absence is due to a medical appointment, religious holy day or court appearance, please provide written documentation to clear the absence.


All attendance regulations are detailed in the Student/Parent Handbook on the CHS web site.

CHS Exemptions from Spring Final Exams 2022

Any Spring course, including electives, can be considered for an exemption if the student achieves at least a 90% grade average in that class for the entire Spring semester.

Freshman may exempt up to 2 courses and Sophomores may exempt up to 4 courses.

Exam exemptions will NOT be granted for any course if the student has accrued the following in either the Fall or Spring semesters:


~ In-School Suspension, Out-of-School Suspension, or DAEP

~ Any unexcused absences or truancy

~ 5 tardies for any course

~ Outstanding assignments, projects, books or fees

~ 5 absences for any course. Note that students are marked absent if they miss 20 minutes of class (see CHS Student/Parent Handbook for attendance and exemption details).


Attendance tracking for each course concludes the last class period immediately preceding the final exam date for that class.


Students enrolled in an AP course may be exempt if they have at least a 70% grade average in that course and take the AP exam for the course.

2020-2021 Bus Passes

Bus passes are required to ride buses. Click here for more information.

AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITY PASSES

We offer AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITY PASSES (at no charge) for students who, after their last class of the day, need to be transported to the other high school for a school sponsored sport or activity. This pass may be obtained by picking-up an application from the student's coach or sponsor.


Once completed, it must be signed by the coach or sponsor of the activity or sport and returned to the office. All students must then sign the bus rider contract. Passes will be available for students to pick-up at the office within five (5) school days.


Students must present their pass to the bus driver each time they need to ride or will not be allowed to ride. This pass is not necessary if the student has a valid annual or semester bus pass. Please note that misuse of the pass will require immediate forfeiture of the pass and it must be used for transportation to school activities only.

Commuting Between Campuses

Students must commute between campuses (CHS/CSHS) via the district provided shuttle bus. The only exception is when a student begins or ends their day on a campus that is not their home campus, they may commute in their personal vehicle only for first or last block.


Transporting other students in their vehicles is prohibited.

VOE

A Verification of Enrollment is required for students getting a permit or license. There is a sign-up sheet in the front office. If you sign in before noon, forms can be picked up by 3:21 pm, after noon forms can be picked up the next school day.


Forms are good for 30 days.

Parking Permits

The sale of Carroll High School parking permits for the 2021-22 school year will be included as a component of Annual Student Verification (ASV), via Skyward Family Access.


Parents will be given the option to purchase parking permits for Sophomore students for $150.00. No Freshman, regardless of age, are allowed to drive and park on the CHS campus.


Please remember…If a student is illegally parked, they are subject to be booted. Cost of removal of the booting device is $30.00.


The availability to purchase parking permits will remain active throughout the school year for sophomores as they receive their Driver’s License.

CHS Parking Violation

Remember that ONLY sophomores, juniors and seniors are allowed to drive/park at CHS and should be parking in the north band lot where ample space is provided.


Carroll High School will begin placing wheel locks on vehicles that are parked in unauthorized areas or vehicles that do not have a current CHS/CSHS parking permit. If a student is illegally parked for one or more of the following reasons they are subject to be booted, towed or both. Cost for removal of the booting device is $30.00.


Violations include:


· No valid PARKING PERMIT

· Parked in a HANDICAPPED space

· Parked in a FIRE LANE

· Blocking entrance to a building or driveway (fire department regulation)

· Parking in an unauthorized parking area (i.e. staff or visitor parking)

· Blocking access to a trash receptacle or dumpster

· Improperly parked

· Additional violations as warranted


If a student is booted they will find a neon orange sticker (sample above) affixed on the driver’s side window. Failure to pay will result in disciplinary action.


Please ensure that students parking on campus have a permit on their vehicle. The link to purchase is in Skyward.


Please feel free to contact the Assistant Principal’s office at 817-949-5626 with any questions.
