Back to School

Back To School Information

Hello Wolverines!  It's time to start thinking about back to school!  I wanted to share some important information with you:

CBHS Residency Verification/Schedule Preview

Residency Verification/Schedule Preview will occur beginning August 7th from noon – 6 pm and conclude on August 8th from 7:30 am – 3 pm.  Everyone should enter the building through the last entrance at the front of the school closest to HOPE VILLAGE ROAD.

Schedule pick up is an opportunity for your student to take care of back-to-school administrative tasks before the year begins.  Students pay fine and fees (which can also be paid in the Skyward family portal), verify their residency in our zone (or have an approved transfer), receive their student ID, pay for parking, get a locker if needed, and get a DRAFT of their schedule.  All counselors are in the commons both days to help answer any questions you may have.

If you are unable to attend schedule pick up, please continue to fill out the online registration information and we will take care of the rest of the items when the kids return to school on August 19th.  The online registration form portal will open August 1st @ 8:30am.  All paperwork must be completed prior to schedule preview.

 

What to Bring to Residency Verification/Schedule Preview

 

  1. You must completely fill out the online registration in Skyward in order for your student to participate in the schedule pick up process.  If this information is not completed in its entirety, your student will be turned away and will not receive a draft of their schedule.  Again, the portal will open on August 1st.
  2. PTA information will be emailed out at a later date as they have an online registration portal as well.
  3. All students MUST be clear on fines and fees from previous school years before they will be permitted to enter the schedule pick up process at school.  Please send your student with the appropriate amount of money to clear the fines and fees (cash or money order only) or pay online in the Skyward family portal.  If they owe nothing, please disregard this requirement.
  4. ALL students are required to bring residency verification information.  Proof of residency MUST include one of the following:  Light bill, gas bill, water bill – MUST be from July or August 2019.  We will not accept any other type of bill.  If you moved since last year, we will also need to see your lease agreement or mortgage statement.  If you are at Brook on a student transfer, you will need to let us know so we can check the system.
  5. Various groups will be selling spirit items such as hats, shirts, etc.  Bring MONEY!!!!
  6. Parking Permits will be sold.  Please have proof of insurance (students name must be on the insurance as well as the current address), valid driver’s license, and a plate number along with $35 (cash or money order only).  Permits will be sold at all lunches the first 2 weeks of school.  After that grace period, parking tickets will be issued, and towing will occur at the student’s expense.

 

First Day Information

On the first day of school, August 19th, all students should report to CBHS (even if you are in dual credit).  Staff members will be in the commons for students to pick up their FINAL schedules.  All students should report directly to first period before the tardy bell at 7:20. Schedules may change between registration and the first day, so we need everyone to pick up their final schedule on the 19th and follow that one.  The schedule from the preview is only a draft and could have changed.  We want them following the proper schedule on the first day.   

BUSES:  If your student rides the bus, please go to the Transfinder site (on the district website under the transportation department) to get your bus number and pick up times.  If your student waits until 2:30 on the first day of school to figure out what bus they ride, it will probably be too late and they will miss it.

DUAL CREDIT:  First day of school only - Morning dual credit students will report to their morning San Jac classes if they have begun, otherwise they will report to CBHS at or before 9 am to pick up their schedules and then sit in the commons until the bell rings to go to 3rd period.  San Jac is aware of this procedure.  Afternoon dual credit students will report to San Jac after 5th period for their regularly scheduled class.

On the second day of school, and everyday thereafter, morning dual credit students will report directly to San Jac for class.  If students arrive at CBHS, from San Jac, before the bell for 3rd period - they must wait in the commons (and only the commons) until class change.

SCHOOL SERVICE:  Seniors with school service on their schedule will report to room 116 during their aide period so they can be assigned their location. Ms. Ruiz will be there to assist you.

OFF CAMPUS CLASSES:  Students who travel to other campuses for programs such as auto tech, bio med, etc. should report to room 116 at CBHS during their scheduled periods on the first day of school and see Ms. Smith.  She will give you information about how to travel between schools and what to do when we have alternative schedules, inclement weather, etc.   

TARDIES:  CBHS begins counting tardies on Thursday, August 22nd.  3 days has proven to be plenty of time for students learn their schedule.  If a student is having a hard time getting to a particular class on time, they need to see their AP.  We will determine if they need to take a different route to class or if they need a little grace period for a particular class due to distance.

LOCKERS:  Lockers will be assigned upon request.  However, if a student had a locker last year, they will have the same locker again with the same combination.  Students can get their locker information before school, after school, or during lunch in the office.  We have a big sign in the commons that shows where to go for lockers and ID's.

ID's:  If your student did not pick up their ID at registration or needs to get a new one, they can always come into the office before school, after school, or during lunch.  If students require a new ID, the cost is $6. Due to safety concerns, students will be required to wear their ID every day, visible – on the upper portion of their torso.  The first ID is provided to them by CBHS, however, everyone after that is $6 (lanyard included).  If they only need a lanyard, they are $1.

TEXTBOOKS:  At CBHS, most textbooks are only available on line, however for the few classes that have hardcopies, the textbook information is as follows:  Students are NOT required to check out books – classes that have hardcopy textbooks will be issued to the students through that class.  After the first two weeks of school, if the students need a book, they should report to the Locker/ID office and one of the ladies will be able to help them.  Students can only check books out before school, after school, or during their lunch.

LAPTOPS:  If your student does not have a laptop, they will be able to get one once school starts.  They are not required to have a CCISD laptop if they have their own device.  Beginning Tuesday, August 20th, we will begin calling new students to the library to get their laptops.  After Tuesday, any students needing a laptop or “laptop help” should report to the library help center, which we call the "Brook Station".  It is open all year so our students can get technology assistance.

SCHOOL PICTURES:  Pictures will be taken later in the school year.  Notifications will go out.

PARENT PICK UP/DROP OFF:  Parents should NOT drop off kids in the front of the school.  All students should be dropped off behind the school.  This parking lot has one entrance and one exit.  Please do not enter through the exit – it is a safety issue for our kids and drivers.

PARKING - Student parking is open in the front of the school or in the athletic parking lot by the tennis courts.

PARKING PERMITS - Parking Permits will be sold.  Please have proof of insurance (students name must be on the insurance as well as the current address), valid driver’s license, and a plate number along with $35 (cash or money order only).  Permits will be sold at all lunches the first 2 weeks of school.  After that grace period, parking tickets will be issued, and towing will occur at the student’s expense.

Parent Volunteers

All parent volunteers for CBHS extracurricular clubs, athletics, and booster clubs, must register in our parent volunteer system.  We are currently finding out if everyone needs to re-enroll or just new volunteers.  Please hold off on this task and I will send more information once I know.   Thank you.

 

Enjoy the rest of your summer!  See you at Schedule Pick up!  GO WOLVERINES!
