What a Week We Had and Principal's Coffee Next Week

Hello Rattler Nation:

WOW! What a genuinely stressful and still fun week we had here at CHHS. We have never been so inundated with high-level issues in my eight years here. As many of you know, I have been working overtime to triage the bizarre events unfolding this week. Mostly, though, I have been walking around campus, letting kids ask questions or banter at me about all the rumors, etc. I want to recognize that many students felt a high level of stress, so I made an announcement over the PA today that I feel was as transparent as I could be. I sent you that very communication this morning so nothing was lost in translation. I hope you can speak with your children and put them at ease along with you as well.

We did manage to do some pretty incredible things this week as well! We had our Spring Sports Meeting at lunch today. We had several games this week that had large turnouts.

Please direct families to enter off Franklin & Gloria at the new gym. There is Red Cross personnel on campus to assist. Families can take their pets there. The Humane Society set up an area outside of the gym for pets so they don't have to leave them. The situation will be assessed day by day, but they are currently open.
