Student AUP's

I have recently received a report of at least 100 students that have still not turned in their Acceptable Use Policy paperwork from the 1st day packet earlier this year. Parents and students need to be aware beginning on Friday the students will no longer have any computer access at CHS. While this is definitely not something we want to happen to any student at CHS it is necessary as our staff must maintain proper legality for all of our students.

All students have been given additional paperwork and should be aware if there is a problem. If you have additional questions please feel free to contact the school

Teacher Web Sites Back Up

CHS is sincerely sorry for the problems that showed up yesterday requiring parents to try to login to the teacher web pages to view information. This was a minor problem that took us a little while to identify but it should be corrected now.

If you have additional problems please continue to notify us and we'll do all we can to make sure the sites work correctly.

Moms In Touch

On behalf of the staff at CHS and myself, I would like to thank this wonderful organization for welcoming us to another successful school year earlier today.

The CHS/CSHS groups meet either on Thursday or Friday mornings and have encouraged others to join them at their meetings.

If you are interested in this group please feel free to contact me here at CHS and I'll be happy to direct you to one of our wonderful parents.

Curriculum Night Successful

We would like to thank all parents for their wonderful attendance at our Curriculum Night on Tuesday, November 8, 2009. While CHS may sometimes be a little busy to find your way, it appeared you were all very successful and had it figured out at the end of the night.

I'd also like to thank our wonderful staff members for spending the evening with us and helping to educate our parents on what will be discussed in class.

If you have any questions please feel free to let us know. We'll be happy to direct you or the question to the correct individual.

GuestAssist at Dragon Stadium

As we approach the upcoming athletic season our athletic director Kevin Ozee and his staff will be putting into place a new GuestAssist System at Dragon Stadium.

This system will enable immediate two way communication with patrons and event administrators as it relates to weather, emergency weather alerts, school updates, or other concerns.

If you have any concerns please contact a staff member and they'll be glad to assist you.

Curriculum Night Tuesday

Please remember Tuesday night at 6 PM will be our CHS Curriculum Night. We look forward to seeing everyone at CHS. We will start our classes at 6 PM with 8 minute classes and 4 minute passing periods.

While our counselors will be available to hand out schedules I would encourage everyone to gather the information from your child earlier for speed at school.

We look forward to seeing you at school. If you have any questions please contact us at your convenience.

Please Help Our Campus Excellence Committee

CHS is currently in need of parents to assist our site based decision making committee.

We need a parent from each grade level to meet and a local business owner to participate for CHS.

The committee will meet every other month on the first Wednesday at 3:45. The meetings will gather for a close to an hour. The committee will gather data and help guide the campus as needed with various decisions.

If you need specific information please contact the school and we'll be happy to provide specific information.

Traffic Changing

The City of Southlake and CISD are finalizing a change to the traffic pattern at CHS beginning on Tuesday, September 8, 2009.

There should be at least an announcement sent from each party once a final decision is made.

Again we thank every parent and staff member for working through this change and will do all we can to make sure it is finalized in a way that will serve our students best.

President's Speech to be Archived by CISD

CISD/CHS plans to provide Dragon families with a link to the archived copy of President Barack Obama's speech to school children Tuesday. This is an unprecedented event in our nation's history, and we applaud any and all attention our elected officials can give to the topic of public education. However, CHS will not interrupt our planned scope and sequence to show the speech live in classes Tuesday. Our teachers are already deep into the instructional delivery of the district's curriculum content, and we want to do whatever we can to protect the lessons and activities they already had planned for that day.

We look forward to hearing this message from our President, but we are choosing to allow parents to decide when and where to deliver that message to their children. Once the video has been archived and provided in a format for replay, we'll provide parents with access to the link on our CISD website. Information about the speech, along with lesson plans for parent-student discussion are already available from the US government at


Another New Dragon

Congratulations to Coach Stephen Langford and his wife Jackie on their baby girl, Caroline, born last night/early this morning. We have been told everyone is doing wonderfully. We look forward to seeing our new baby Dragon soon.

With our return to school the H1N1 virus is starting to find its way around the community and schools.

If you will follow the link below it will direct each individual to the district's most recent updates for the virus. Please take the time to review the information ASAP. While we continue to do all we can to help students at CHS we do ask all students and families to continue to take precautions as necessary.

Week 2

It is my hope that many of our kids enter week 2 with the belief they will be successful at CHS and excited to feel welcomed here.

Please remember if you have any questions regarding a class please first and foremost contact the teacher to discuss the concerns. Remember we value and treasure everyone's honesty and willingness to appropriately discuss our students. If you need help to set something up please contact the office and we'll do all we can to help direct this venture for you.

This will be another exciting week on campus as our students continue to prepare for the opening to their district and competition seasons. If you have any questions please let us know and we'll be happy to address those with you.

Way to go Dragons!
