Late Arrival Day: Wednesday, September 21, is a CCISD High School Late Arrival Day. There will be no morning neighborhood buses available due to CCISD High School Late Arrival. Clear Horizons buses will still run from the 5 zoned high schools (a shuttle does not run from Clear View High School on Late Arrival Days). Clear Horizons does not participate in Late Arrival Days, therefore all Clear Horizons students are required to attend all classes on that day.
NHS Table Tutors: Would you like to have a free tutor who has successfully navigated the Horizons workload? Come to the BQR on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to get immediate help, schedule an after school tutoring session (held in a high school teacher's classroom), or to find out more about secrets of success at Horizons. These friendly experienced tutors will be stationed at a table near check-in between 1:15 -1:45 pm. What a great resource - but only if you use it!
Chess Club: Chess Club will meet on Tuesdays from 3:30-4:30 pm in room S9.132. Our first meeting will be Tuesday September 27th, 2016. Bring your chess set if you have one available. To receive important notices about chess club, sign up for Remind 101 by texting: @chechscc to: 81010

Picture Retakes: School picture retakes are scheduled for Wednesday, October 5, from 8:00 AM – 11:30 AM. Students who need retakes must get a pass from their 1st or 2nd period teacher to go to the Side BQR for retakes. Seniors must go during Advisory or before 11:30. Ladies are asked to wear a tank under their clothing to wear under an off the shoulder drape and guys are asked to wear a t-shirt so the tux will fit nicely. This is the last chance to get a picture for the yearbook and the last chance for seniors to be on the class composite photo that will hang in the office.

Late Bus: Clear Horizons provides a late bus that runs every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:00 PM. The late bus will be in front of our school by 5:00 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday and typically departs within 10 minutes. The late bus will drop off in two locations: The East side of 45 at Clear Creek High School and on the West side of 45 at Brookside Intermediate. Students who are planning on riding the late bus must request a pass from the office. The request must be made for official business only (ie tutorials, a rehearsal, detention, etc.). A bus pass must be picked up before 1:00 p.m. on the day you want to ride (Tuesday or Thursday). No bus passes will be issued after lunch. If you do not have a pass you will not be allowed to ride the bus. If no one has picked up a late bus pass, the bus will be cancelled. Students, make sure that your parent/guardian knows that you are staying late and catching the late bus. The front office closes at 4:00 p.m. When signing up for pass students must include the following:
1) Purpose – Why are you staying late?
2) Location from 3:30 – 5:00 – Where will you be?
3) Parent Permission – Did you let your parent know you were staying late?
The reason we must have this information is so that we can find you in case of an emergency.
