    Good Evening Padres,

    It is our last week of the first semester. I hope all our students have had a chance to review the final exam schedule and checked in with your teachers about what to expect for each class. Monday is a great day to get last minute tips and tricks about how to succeed on whatever final exam awaits. This is not the time to be shy! Ask questions and get all the information you need. I know all of you will finish strong!

     

    Impact of Shelter in Place Order on CHS

    As you may be aware the Monterey County Health Department has issued a shelter in place order for our area beginning on Sunday evening and continuing through January 11th. The order, along with the supporting documents and readouts from meetings with the Health Department, allow our school to maintain any existing practices that have been in place for students and staff to access the campus. However, we are also acutely aware of the rapidly rising cases in our area and are sensitive that these numbers may adjust people's current thinking. 

     

    For the foreseeable future we will continue as we have with small cohorts on site, making necessary adjustments if assigned staff choose to remain home. Faculty may continue to access the campus on a voluntary basis but are encouraged to reduce the amount of contact with other staff during the day if possible. After school cohorts (Sports, Performing Arts) will not meet during this time period at which time we hope to have clearer guidance about either an extension of the SIP order or any modification beyond January 11th. 

     

     

    Materials/Computer Exchange

    Some students will need to exchange books for the start of the second semester. CHS will conduct a mass material exchange on Thursday from 2:30-4:00pm and Friday from 11am-3:30pm next week. All students in American Government/Economics and World Geography/Health will need to come pick up a new textbook for these semester courses. In addition, many English and World Language classes have new materials that need to be picked up. 

    More importantly, we have 330 Chromebooks that require a software update to fix some audio and video issues. A separate email will be sent to those students and their parents that have a need for a fix. We are requesting that you drop off your fully charged Chromebook on site on December 18th. It will be ready for pick up on January 4th so you will be ready for the start of classes in January Please keep an eye out in your email to see if you are affected. 

     

    Dance Performance of the Nutcracker

    The Dance Program will be premiering their presentation of the Nutcracker performed around the Carmel area. The performance will be available on Padre TV on December 16th. Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate with your family and get in the holiday spirit care of our wonderful student dancers.

    The Math Club is providing free math tutoring for all CHS students! Join Mr. Nacht's zoom meeting Fridays at 8:30 or 11:00 AM, and Math Club students will be there to help you work through it.

    Posted by Jon Lyons on 11/20/2020

    Good Evening Padres,

     

    Not sure how others have been feeling lately but I have noticed a sense of exhaustion set in. We have hit the time of the year that is usually full of life for a high school campus. Winter performances would be coming into form, playoffs would be in full swing and the normal rhythm of the campus would have settled to a nice daily hum. I write this only to recognize that we continue to be challenged by our current circumstances and even though this week brought the good news nationally of a potential vaccine on the horizon, we are still a long way away from the simple joys of frozen hands on the sidelines of a football game or the warmth of the theatre during a performance. 

    If you will indulge me, I’d like our students to take a moment and reflect on where we are right now. Think of all you have accomplished so far this year. You have been asked to transition to a whole new way of learning in record time and many of you have done so seamlessly. I know for a lot of you this is difficult. The sense of isolation being stuck away from your friends is hard. I hope in the coming weeks we will see other opportunities to get together on campus safely that may ease that burden. I encourage you to reach out to your friends and teachers whenever you need to in order to maintain the connections that will get us through this tough time. 

    I also would like you to take a few moments to answer a simple question; how do you measure a successful day right now? Okay, so maybe not a simple question...but one I think we need to ask ourselves at times when we start to feel low. What does your success look like right now? While we normally judge success by grades and performance measurements, I think we need to look at that differently right now. While I still want you to strive to do your best, for goodness sake, give yourselves a break. Success this year will not be measured by the normal metrics. It will be measured by the simple act of survival and the small moments when we get to laugh with each other. Cherish those moments for that is what we will all remember when this pandemic is past us.  

    Like many of you, we have a thanksgiving tradition in our house of going around the table proclaiming all the things we are thankful for. At this virtual table we all currently share I am thankful for all of you. For your dedication to school and to your studies. For the perseverance you have shown in the face of insurmountable odds. I am thankful to be in this moment at this time with all our students. You continue to inspire me each and every day! 

    So I have an assignment for you (parents too). Send a short email to a friend, teacher or other parent of the CHS family sharing how you are thankful for them at this moment. Or send a note to someone in your life who has meant something to you lately.  Let’s keep our family together these next months and share in each other’s joy. 

     

    Update on Hybrid/Parent and Student Survey

    At the most recent Parent/Student study session it was suggested the school seek out parent and student input on our planning. While we are still a long way from having a completed plan, but I am interested in getting input. Below are surveys for both parents and students to fill out that center on different components of a hybrid learning environment. While we all agree that getting our school back together full time, five days a week is the preferred method of learning, there are a lot of ways we can hybridize to maximize effectiveness and still be safe. As I said before, our goal is to maintain a full course of study for all students and do so safely. Please take a few moments to answer our questionnaire. To view our study session presentation visit here

    STUDENT SURVEY

    Phase 2 Sport Specific Athletic Conditioning

    While we await formal guidance from CIF regarding the return to play for our sports programs we are moving forward with the second phase of our athletic conditioning program, which will re-cohort the students centered around our proposed season 1 sports (Cross Country, Field Hockey, Football, Volleyball, Water Polo). Students who are not participating in a season 1 sport will continue to be cohorted by grade level as we have done the past two weeks. We will launch these new cohorts on November 30th. Students interested in signing up can fill out this google form. The deadline for sign ups is Monday November 23rd. For an overview of the program click here. 

     

    CHS Mascot Study Group Formation

    Earlier this year I was tasked to conduct a review of the CHS “Padre” mascot. We are now ready to form our Study Group which will be charged with the evaluation of the current mascot and make a recommendation to CUSD leadership on either a validation of the existing mascot or a recommendation to seek out a new one. We are seeking representatives from students, parents and local community members to assist us in this process. If you are interested in applying to be a member of the study group please fill out this application. The deadline for application is Tuesday, November 24th at 5pm. Please email me if you have any questions about the application or the process in full.

     

    NEW Office hours check in Procedures

    Beginning this week Office Hours check in is now done via scannable QR Code. Students will access their office hours session where the teacher will have the QR Code on display. This will take you to a form to fill out so you can be marked present for attendance purposes. The code will change each week. Most phones have a built in QR scanner in the camera app but you can also download a free reader from your app store. Students without a phone can get assistance from the teacher when they attend the office hours session. 

     

    Sign up for ASB Class Remind

    ASB has a Remind code for each class to get updates on lots of ways to get involved. Text the following codes to 81010 to sign up for your class:

    We have also added all of the College Application presentations to the counseling section of the school website for easy access and review. If you have students who are still working their way through their college applications these can be valuable resources. You may also still request a senior appointment via email directly to your counselor. In your email please put SENIOR APPOINTMENT in the header.

    Posted by Jon Lyons on 11/13/2020

    Good Evening Padres,

    This past Thursday we hosted a virtual Parent Q and A about the high school planning on any move from remote schooling to a hybrid approach. It was a fruitful conversation that allowed parents to share with us their experiences and ask thoughtful and challenging questions about our planning. I want to stress that this change in school access is not imminent but we want to make sure we are ready when the time comes. Back in August, we presented an A/B model to the Governing Board that would give students access to campus two days a week. At the time we felt this was the best plan. We are now taking the opportunity to revisit our planning, applying what we have learned these past three months along with research into how other schools are approaching a return to school. The parent forum was one step in getting stakeholder input and seeking out a better understanding of what parents and students would like to see in a hybrid model. I also had the chance to meet the ASB leadership to get their input as well. The feedback from both of these meetings was extremely valuable. If you would like to view the presentation from the Q and A,  it can be found here.

    Our planning will continue with a parent and student survey that will be sent out next week. This survey will focus on what programs and services the school could provide in a hybrid format that are not attainable in our current model. Our goal is to have a revised plan available in December for parents and students to review. Depending on the nature of that plan we will then determine what choices parents might have to make with regards to a return to school. I want to assure everyone that my goal is to have the school prepared to reopen at the earliest possible time we are able. Our return to campus is dictated to us by state and county health officials based on their metrics and, while we all wish we could just reopen, that call is out of our hands at this point. We will continue to refine our instructional plan to maintain a full course of study that can be accessed by students in a safe manner. 

     

    Phase 2 Sport Specific Athletic Conditioning

    While we await formal guidance from CIF regarding the return to play for our sports programs we are moving forward with the second phase of our athletic conditioning program, which will re-cohort the students centered around our proposed season 1 sports (Cross Country, Field Hockey, Football, Volleyball, Water Polo).

    Posted by Jon Lyons on 11/6/2020

    Good Evening Padres,

    It was so wonderful seeing students on our campus for the first time in many months this week as part of our athletic conditioning. We have always viewed this as the first step to opening up other avenues for student access and are very excited about the possibilities going forward. To that end, we will be holding a Parent/Student Study Session on Thursday, November 12th from 6-7pm. The goal of this study session is to update families on our hybrid planning, seek feedback on some of our initial ideas and gain insight from students and parents about their experiences so far. We are also exploring ways to not only use the campus as a place for culture but as an academic space for classes such as science and performing arts that are difficult to provide a full program in a purely virtual format. I will not be presenting a completed plan at this session but giving those interested a window into the work we have done so far. This process is highly complex with many moving parts but I feel that we as a school can work collaboratively to provide a positive experience.

    The Yearbook is on Sale

    Don't miss out on this year's El Padre Yearbook! This book will not only be a memory for students of their high school years, but a historic document recording details about the year of pandemics, quarantines, fires, online education and a dramatic presidential election. This will be a yearbook like no other, so get yours now at the CHS website store online for $80.

     

    Emotional Support

    To help facilitate communication I will be holding open office hours every Wednesday from 11:45-12:15 via the Zoom link below. This is open to all students, parents or staff who just need a quick chat about anything. These are usually one on one sessions rather than group oriented but I am open to meeting with anyone in any form. Depending on the traffic I will add days as needed. Come on by and say hi!
