Weekly News for Friday, September 9, 2016

 

Thank you to all who attended the Clear Horizons Open House this past Thursday!  It was not a large crowd, but it was a good crowd!

 

Thank you to all who joined, signed up to help, or donated to the Booster Club!  We appreciate your support!

 

Progress Reports:  All grade reports will be electronically distributed this year, unless parents utilize the online option to opt in to the paper report.  We will include this information in the weekly callouts leading up to the first three week progress report.  The first progress report of the year will be posted on Thursday, September 15.  In order for your student to receive a paper copy of his or her grade reports, you must take the following steps:

  1. Log into your Skyward Account
  2. Click the “Student Info” tab on the left
  3. Click the “Request Changes for __” at the top right
  4. In the drop down menu click “Family Information”
  5. At the top of the new window there is a check box for “Receive a Paper Copy of Report Card”
  6. Click “Save” on the bottom right of the window

Once you click “Save” we will know you want your student to receive a paper copy of his or her official grade reports. If you have questions about this process, please call the Horizons front office at 281-929-4657.

 

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.

 

Parent Information Night:  Clear Horizons will conduct our first Parent Information Night of the year Tuesday, September 27, beginning at 7:00 PM.  Our amazing counselors will discuss all you ever wanted or needed to know about Naviance.  You don’t want to miss this session! 

 

CCISD Student Holiday:  CCISD students will have a school holiday Friday, September 30.  As there are no college classes on Fridays, Clear Horizons students will be able to enjoy a three day weekend!

 

Advisory: Advisory class begins at 8:00 AM Monday through Friday.  Students who arrive after 8:00 AM MUST report to the office to check into school, regardless of their arrival time throughout the day.  The only time a student may report directly to class is to advisory class at 8:00 AM. 

 

Service Learning:  Service learning hours should be submitted to a basket in the office where students can turn in hours at any point in the year.  To help students stay organized with Service Learing Hours, we have suggested due dates for the summer and fall semester:

 

August 31 – Summer Service Learning Hours Due (Any hours accumulated over the summer should be turned in by this date.)

December 9 – Fall Service Learning Hours Due (Any hours accumulated throughout the Fall semester should be turned in by this date.)

 

The absolute final due date for all Service Learning hours to be submitted is:

March 31 – All Service Learning Hours (at least 20 hours) must be turned in by this date.

 

As service learning is a key aspect of our mission at Clear Horizons, students who do not meet the 20 hour requirement will meet with Clear Horizons administration to explain the deficit.  Students who refuse to meet the requirement will be returned to their zoned campus.

 

Dress Code:  Clear Horizons follows the CCISD dress code.  The student dress code can be found on our website under the “For Parents” tab or the “For Students” tab.  http://chechs.ccisd.net/UserFiles/Servers/Server_655841/File/Dress%20Code%202016%202017.pdf

 

School Holiday:  Both SJC and CCISD will have a school holiday Monday, September 5.

 

Open House:  The Clear Horizons Open House will take place on Thursday, September 8 at 7:00 PM in the Proscenium, Fine Arts building, Building 15.  We hope to see you all there!

Late Bus:  Clear Horizons provides a late bus that runs every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:00 PM.  The Late Bus began running this Tuesday, August 31.  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.
