 What to Bring to 

Residency Verification/Schedule Pick Up

  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.   
  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 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 2018.  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.
  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 20th, all students should report to CBHS (even if you are in dual credit).  Alphabetical lists will be posted around campus with the student’s advisory teacher and room #.  All students should report to advisory before the tardy bell at 7:20. Schedules and advisory teachers may change between registration and the first day, so we need everyone to check the list.  In advisory, the students will receive their OFFICIAL schedule -students should follow this schedule (not the one they received at residency verification/schedule pick up).  We spend about 20-30 minutes in advisory and then students report to first period and follow their regular schedule.

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.  The link to Transfinder is:  If your student waits until 2:30 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 advisory at CBHS and then sit in the commons during 1st and 2nd period (their dual credit periods).  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 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 24th.  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 made they can always come into the office before school, after school, or during lunch.  If students require a new ID, the cost is $5.  

TEXTBOOKS:  At CBHS, most textbooks are only available on line, however for the few classes that have hardcopies, the textbook information is as follows:  Textbooks will be issued during the first two weeks of school in room 260B.  Students are NOT required to check out books.  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.  Beginning Tuesday, August 22nd, 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.  This became a huge problem last year.  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 new athletic parking lot by the tennis courts.  We are changing the traffic flow in the front of the school – please be aware of this and pay attention to the new flow.  The street between the two lots will now be two way traffic – NO PARKING WILL BE ALLOWED IN THIS AREA.  Cars should not stop alongside the gyms or pool area for drop off or pick up.  If you need to wait for a student, please wait in the parking lot so you do not block traffic. 

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.b under for parents or in the district quick links.

Parent Volunteers

 All parent volunteers for CBHS extracurricular clubs, athletics, and booster clubs, must register in our new parent volunteer system.  You can find the link at You can also find the form on the CCISD website by click on "For Communities" and then click "Volunteer Opportunities".  For the safety and security of our students and staff, CCISD conducts criminal background checks on volunteers.  If you have already registered last year, you do not need to do it again this year.  Your last year’s information is still active and valid.
