FROM THE OFFICE OF STUDENT AFFAIRS 
 
Detentions/Suspensions:  The last regularly schedule Thursday school detention was on June 8.  If a student earns demerits that result in a detention after June 8, that detention will be served on exam make-up day, June 14
 
Students who accumulate demerits that warrant a suspension after May 15 will be required to serve the suspension time on June 14, 15, and 16.  Written notification of the suspension will be provided to the student and parents.
 
Final detentions and suspensions must be served before the student will be allowed to return to school in September; for those not returning to CCHS, these obligations must be fulfilled before clearance from the Student Affairs Office is provided.
 
Uniforms:   Any students who have uniform items they can no longer use are asked to please donate them to the uniform exchange.  We are in need of the sweaters and kilts.  
 
2016-2017 Student Directory:   If you wish to opt-out of the 2017-2018 Student Directory or need to update your contact information, please complete the form and return it to the Student Affairs Office by July 15.  The office will automatically update your child's grade.  The Class of 2017 will be deleted from the directory.
