CHS Caregiver COVID-19 Update May 26th, 2020

Graduation Information

Watch the video below!

  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes early!
  • A Google Doc will be emailed to all seniors on Friday night listing the times of everyone. This will be updated in real time, so you can see if things are moving ahead of schedule or not. If you notice that we are ahead of schedule, please feel free to come down earlier.
  • For Fees and Fines: Please come into the main office this week to pay those fines that you have. We do not have a way to accept payment on Sunday.
  • Need your cap and gown still? We have them in the Main Office. Please bring cash with you, as we cannot accept a check, as it is on behalf of Josten's.
Thank you again to Wes and Amy Tharp, Josh Eggers and the City of Clinton and the dedicated CHS staff who helped set-up, encourage the students and tear down that night for their efforts with the Graduation Drive on May 15th. It was a wonderful success! Even though Mr. Kuch's left knee felt like it was going to fall off on Saturday.

PROM: Current guidelines from the State of Iowa indicate that we would NOT be able to have prom in July, if current conditions and limitations persist. If this changes, we of course will let you know.

JULY GRADUATION CEREMONY: Current guidelines from the State of Iowa indicate that we COULD have a ceremony on the football field if we follow Social Distancing guidelines. More information will be shared at a later date to ensure we have continued interest in this option for July 24th or July 25th.

it's almost the end of the year...but we still have work to do!

  • Last day is June 2nd for 9th-11th! All work is due on that day. Do not wait until the 2nd to submit your work. The reason: teachers may have to give you feedback so you can get to proficiency. Please do not chance you passing a class until the very end.

summer schooL?

Initial planning of summer school has Summer School taking place in late July or early August. Students who ended the school year with an "I" in a Graduation Requirement course, will be asked to attend. More information to come.

Don't want to do summer school? Get going on the online learning!

Current 19-20 seniors who are not eligible to walk on May 31st, and do not finish course work before June 3rd, may have an earlier Summer School start date than the rest of the students.

TEXTBOOK and Laptop Drop OFF!

June 3rd: 8:30 a.m. to 5:30.
  1. Please bring your laptops, books, or any other CHS materials back to Door B11 on June 3rd!
  2. Have a piece of paper that will have your name and grade level on it, so we can ensure that you are not charged for something that you turned in! We will grab it from you and then you are good to go!

Summer sports!

Guidance has been issued by Governor Reynold's office that indicated that Softball and Baseball can be held this summer, as long as safety requirements can be met during practices and games.

The Mississippi Athletic Conference Activities Directors are meeting to determine how each school can ensure they can meet the guidelines for practices and games. Safety is of the utmost importance.

Further information is coming out in the next day or two.

Return to learn 2020-2021 School year

As per Mr. DeLacy's last blog, the district has to come up with a delivery plan for next year for the State of Iowa. This plan is required to have one part; continuous learning and the other two parts/components are optional; a hybrid model (between online and in the school building) and completely at school (brick and mortar 100%).

The district is trying to address all three components, so we can be prepared for anything that happens.

Student, caregiver and staff voice in how we can go about coming up with a plan that meets the academic and emotional needs of our students and staff is our number one priority.

Each group (students, cargivers, and staff) will be asked to complete a survey that will help us with our decision making. Please take the opportunity to provide us with your feedback.

Students will be getting the survey this week and the Caregiver and staff surveys will be going out sometime in the next two weeks.

A very big thank you to each student, staff member and caregiver that has helped us navigate the past few months. This has not been easy, but it also has provided a window for us as to what we can do as a school when our backs are against a wall. It has been wonderful to see how all of you have responded.

As always, any questions, comments or concerns, please reach out to jrkuch@clintonia.org.
