School Mission Statement
  • Coronavirus Update as of March 26, 2020

    All 25 of the Monterey county superintendents have been working together this week to make some joint decisions about the best next steps regarding school closures. Please find attached (links below) to this email the letter that explains that decision. We are jointly deciding to extend the closure for our districts to May 4, 2020. This brings us in alignment with what the Bay Area School Districts have decided to do and helps California and the country with slowing the spread of the virus. As May 4 approaches, the county superintendents will jointly reevaluate the situation to see if closure needs to be extended.  


    Please know that we recognize the challenges our families are facing during this time, especially as you have become partners with us in the education of our students. I am also very proud of our teachers who are focused on continuing to shift to an online or remote learning environment, as well as our classified staff who are continuing to support the district processes so we can move forward.  We will survive this and it will be because we are working together as a community!


    Continue to check our website and my newsletter for updates and helpful resources. The next newsletter is coming out Friday, March 27, 2020. 


    I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.    


    Barb Dill-Varga, Ed.D.

  • Course Selection Information for 2020-2021

    It’s hard to believe, but the counseling department is already working on scheduling courses for the 2020-2021 school year. We would like to share with you important information about the timeline of the scheduling process.

    January 21 – February 25: CHS teachers will have conversations with students regarding their course recommendations for the following school year in their classes 

    February 3: Course registration forms will be distributed to students by their English teachers. Students are required to take their form around and have teachers sign off on their recommendations for placement.

    February 25 – March 9: Students will be selecting next year’s courses in AERIES in their English classes after a presentation from the Counseling Department. Course Registration forms with parent/guardian signature are due to counselors the day of their presentation in their English classes.

    ***  CHS supports a balanced experience, and we want our students to be successful and healthy human beings. It is essential to have conversations with your student(s) regarding course selection considering academic rigor, overall workload, and additional factors such as: clubs, sports, transportation to and from school, employment, family responsibilities, and mental health. 

    Any requests to change courses after the March 31 deadline are not guaranteed.  In order to request a change after the deadline, students must complete the following steps:

    • Pick up a Course Request form from the counseling office (forms will be available beginning May 1st)
    • Complete the Course Request form including a parent/guardian signature approving of the change.
    • Submit completed forms to your counselor between May 18 - May 20
