This handbook is designed to give you a better understanding of our school.  It contains policies and guidelines that help CHS operate in a safe and orderly manner and is used as a guide by staff and administration when dealing with academic or disciplinary matters.   Please review and refer to this handbook prior to and during the school year.  It should prove to be a ready reference book containing quick facts on where to go and who to see.  Along with pertinent school facts, you will find federal and state laws that have been adopted as school policy.  Make special note of these, since their consequences are of a nature that will be far reaching in your school career.  Share this information with your parents.
