  • Human Trafficking Prevention Resources

    As required by Ca. Ed. Code 49381, districts are required to provide to parents of students in grades 6-12 with information on human trafficking prevention resources. In consultation with the Monterey County Office of Education, we selected these resources to share with parents.

  • Office Hours

    One of the unique features we offer at CHS is the availability of our teachers during office hours. Teachers are open to their students from 7:45am to 8:25am on Thursdays as a way to get additional assistance. Students can get help from teachers regarding a concept they don't understand, clarity around a project, make-up a test, or complete homework. If they are all caught up in classes or do not have a need to meet with a teacher they can take advantage of the opportunity to get extra sleep.
    Students can also access the library during this time.  However, regardless of why a student is here once they are on campus during office hours, we do not let them off.
    Students who receive a D or F in one or more class on the upcoming quarter grading period will be assigned to a mandatory office hour session. They will be notified by their counselor when they are assigned. This is essential for those who are in danger of failing a class to get the support they need. 
    If you have any questions or want more information you can email your child's counselor or either of the Assistant Principals.
