  • IMPORTANT: Returning and picking up items from school (English/Spanish)

    Seniors will need to drop off their laptop, library books, and textbooks on Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. next week. Laptops will be placed in bins which will then be placed in quarantine, as will all books.  Seniors who fail to turn in their laptop will have to pay a fine, which must be paid prior to graduation.  Damage to laptops for seniors will be assessed after the quarantine period.  Next week, we will mail seniors a letter which shows all fines/fees owed to the school, including outstanding cafeteria balances throughout a student’s high school career, library books, technology fees, or any other type of fees. If there is an additional technology fee owed after laptop inspection, students will receive a phone call. Fines and fees must be paid prior to graduation.  Fines and fees can be paid on select days/times the week of June 1st.  We will provide information at a later date for non-seniors.

    Honor cord pick up for seniors will take place on May 27th from 9am-1pm at the cafeteria exterior entrance.  Honor cords given will be based on those organizations that distribute honor cords along with Latin honor designations.  If you have questions, please reach out to Coach Dark. Information regarding graduation decisions will be coming out very soon.

    Yesterday, teachers started entering grades in PowerSchool for 9-11 graders to give students the opportunity to see where they stand with at-home learning assignments. The fourth term which appeared on the last report card will count 50% of the second semester course grade, and any work submitted after March 5th will count towards the other 50%. Students in grades 9-11 should refer to the letter received in the mail two weeks ago which explains choices students and parents can make based on grades from at-home learning along with grades from the last report card mailed home March 9th.  In the next few days, we will send information on how students and parents will give their decision for each class from second semester.  Please check your grades in PowerSchool, and reach out to your teachers with questions related to grading or how to complete the at-home learning assignments provided since mid-March.

    Students should check their student emails every day.  We are looking to garner student interest in taking at-home summer school courses for credit recovery if a student failed first semester. If interested, students/parents should complete the link in the email sent to students.  Seniors who still have some work to do in order to move into graduation status should also check email.  Keep in mind that just because you received a yard sign does not mean you will graduate.  Although grades from fourth term are the final grades for seniors Pass or Withdraw, some seniors who have a withdrawal still need a class to graduate.  If you have questions, reach out to your teacher or counselor.

    Students who have been picking up paper packets will be able to turn in completed work on Wednesday, May 27th and Thursday, May 28th from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.  For our staff’s safety, work will be placed in an envelope and held in quarantine for at least seven days before teachers can see it.  During this time, we will have limited school staff on campus to collect completed work, band instruments, or other items.  

    Any student who needs to pick up any personal belongings at school or drop off band instruments or other items should come by on your assigned day and times:

      • Wednesday 9:00-11:00 Seniors
      • Wednesday 12:00-2:00 Juniors
      • Thursday 9:00-11:00 Sophomores
      • Thursday 12:00-2:00 Freshman

    To retrieve your belongings, you will buzz in at the front office and an adult will meet you at the door.  The adult assisting you will retrieve the items and return them to you.

  • Food Assistance for Chatham Families

    COVID-19 has kept some Chatham County residents from securing food. They may benefit from the newly created Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) Program.

    The program provides benefits on an Electronic Benefit Transfer card, or EBT card. The benefits are for children who would receive free or reduced-priced meals, so it is very important to make sure the address on file for students is correct. The data manager at the appropriate school for students should be contacted to make updates to addresses, or call 919-542-6400 to make updates.

    No application process is necessary to receive P-EBT benefits. The card will function like a standard EBT card, and the same guidelines will apply. 

    Those already receiving Food and Nutrition Services benefits will receive an additional benefit on their existing EBT card in the next few weeks. Those eligible for P-EBT benefits who are not already enrolled in Food and Nutrition Services benefits will receive a new EBT card in the next few weeks. Before that card arrives, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services will mail a letter explaining how to activate the card and how to use it. 

    The Chatham County Department of Social Services will receive questions about this program by phone at 919-542-2759 or through email at askdss@chathamnc.org.

    Those using P-EBT benefits are encouraged to also take advantage of meal distribution at designated public schools and community locations. The meals are free for anybody 18 years old and younger. Find local meal sites by texting FOODNC to 877-877. Spanish speakers may text COMIDA to 877-877.

    • Use a sturdy damp, not wet, lint-free paper or cloth.

    • Spray or lightly dampen the cloth with rubbing alcohol.

    • Any excess dampness will naturally and quickly dry. Do not wipe dry with another cloth.

    DO NOT USE cleaners or wipes that contain either bleach or ammonia! These chemicals can damage your Chromebook, and you will be charged fees!

  • Update: New School Nutrition Pricing

    In June the School Nutrition Department sent a proposal to increase meal prices for both breakfast and lunch for the coming 2019-2020 school year, which was approved by the CCS School Board on June 10. Please find the summary below: 

    Each year the USDA requires School Food Authorities to complete a Paid Lunch Equity Tool to determine if the district's meal pricing is equal to the free reimbursement meal rate.  This tool dictates if we have to raise our meal pricing.  

    For school year 2019-2020, the meal pricing will be increased to the following amounts:

    Breakfast $1.50 (free & reduced students are no charge at breakfast)

    Lunch $3.00 (full-pay student)

    Lunch $0.40 (reduced student)
