You may have noticed that you did not receive many forms to fill out at the start of the year, including online technology and media education forms. Returning CCS students from last year should have received an email at the start of this school year with information on updating demographic, medical, and contact information, as the district planned to move towards a digital platform to gather such information. It is necessary for us to have an accurate and current email address on file to ensure we get information to you in a timely manner. However, CCS is delaying the full implementation of the online technology and media education form processing components of the digital platform. All students will be receiving the following paper forms to take home for parent review and signature, if applicable: (1) Chatham PASS Opt-Out; (2) Media Non-Consent; (3) Technology Responsible Use; and (4) 1-to-1 Student Device Program Handbook and Agreement Form for ninth graders and any new 10th-12th grade students. All forms are due back to your student’s first period teacher no later than Friday, September 27, 2019. If we do not receive opt-out forms (Chatham PASS and Media Non-Consent) by the 27th, then we will interpret this as you not exercising your opt-out right for the year unless you later notify us explicitly of an opt-out decision.
Seniors! Check your student mail for important updates from Mrs., Morris about applying for the Morehead-Cain Scholarship at UNC-Chapel Hill and the Parks Scholarship at NCSU.

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)
If you couldn't make it to Into the Show, here's the presentation, which includes important information about auditions, rehearsals, and important dates:
