Principal LaVerne Mattocks message for the week of August 25 - 29

Hello.  This is Principal LaVerne Mattocks saying welcome to Carrboro High School 2014-2015!  We are so excited about things to come during this school year.  Let me take this time to say thank you to everyone who attended Freshmen and New Student Orientation, and kudos, to those who helped make the program a success.  The CHS Jags, sponsored by Kay Johnson, did an outstanding job as ambassadors of our school.

Tomorrow is the big day and I am ecstatic about beginning a new year.  There are a few things I need to note about the first day of school:
(1) School begins at 8:45 and dismisses at 3:50.  As a reminder, the building is open to students from 8:00 am - 4:30pm, unless students are involved in a sanctioned school activity.  
(2) Parents, please remember the only drop-off for students is in the front circle.  This will help us maintain a steady flow of traffic and provide an additional layer of precaution for our student drivers as they arrive as well. 
(3) Remember to check student schedules in Powerschool/Homebase this evening.  There may have been changes over the course of the weekend.  If you did not retrieve a copy on Friday, we will have hard copies of schedules available in front of the CIC tomorrow morning beginning at 8:00am.  
(4) An additional notice:  We will operate as a closed campus during the first two weeks of school.  Seniors will begin off-campus lunch on September 8

As we launch this school term, I ask for everyone's continued cooperation and support.  Team CHS has established new goals and new processes this year.  We hope our reflection leads to continual refining of our practice and providing the best learning environment for our students.  I anticipate a great day and an even better year at Carrboro High School.  Thank you in advance for the role you play in that!  Have a good evening.

A schedule change can be considered for any of the following reasons:

2. The student is missing a course on his/her schedule. 
3. The student has previously failed a course with the same teacher.
