Due to recent mitigations put in place by IDPH and IHSA, all high school athletics are temporarily put on pause, effective today 11/20/20. There will be no open gyms, practices, conditioning, or competition during this time. The only exception would be if the activity takes place outdoors, with 10 or less participants who are socially distanced and wearing a face covering. IHSA will discuss the restart of the winter athletic season at their December board meeting.

Saturday was an incredible day of Trojan Athletics! At the Cross Country Regional Meet, our girls' team placed 2nd and advanced to Sectionals. The team was led by Megan Garrett with a 4th place overall finish and Grace Spoonhour with a 11th place finish! On the boys' side, Luca Carcasi qualified for sectionals as well, with an 18th place finish. At the Girls' Swim Sectional, Charleston placed 3rd overall as a team! Angie Coe won all four of her events, and set pool records in each of them! Ava Zheng, Molly Weber, and Delaney Goddard also scored in events contributing to the team success. We had personal best times in 9 of 15 swims and season best swims in 14 of 15 swims. Great job everyone!

Over the next couple weeks Charleston High School will be posting videos going over the specifics of the CHS reopening plan for students returning to in-person instruction and students remaining in remote learning. The plan can be found in its entirety on our website. Transportation: Students and their families are encouraged to provide their own transportation if possible. Students who ride the bus will report to door #5 for their health screening. Students that are driving themselves to school will also utilize door #23. (Door #23 is located on the north side of the building between the cafeteria and the media center.) Students that are being dropped off will report to door #5 for their health screening. (Door #5 is located at the Baker gym entrance on the south side of the building.) Arrival: Doors will not open until 7:50. Tutorial begins at 8:20 Class begins at 8:40 As students line up for health screening social distancing guidelines should be maintained. After a student’s health screening has been completed, a student will report directly to their tutorial class (even if it is before 8:20) unless they are eating breakfast then they will report directly to the cafeteria. Students that are eating breakfast will report directly to their tutorial period after they have finished breakfast. Tutorial class is determined by a student’s first class of the day. For example Scarlet Day=1st-period teacher Gold Day= 2nd-period teacher Our video can be found on our district Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=374259077090049

Today is day number two of SAT testing here at CHS. Students that are not testing should utilize today to connect with teachers and work to complete any missing assignments. Students are encouraged to reach out to their teachers with any questions. As a reminder CHS does not schedule parent-teacher conferences specifically on October 15th and 16th, but rather throughout the year on an as needed basis.

CHS Students and Families, We were made aware on Friday that there were negative things being said about CHS students on a social media platform. We quickly began working on this issue when notified. We have reported the account/posts to the platform. We have shared the information with the Charleston Police Department. We are continually working on this matter. We have higher expectations for our students than what was demonstrated here. We expect our students to conduct themselves appropriately at all times both in-person and online. The type of behavior exhibited through these recent posts is completely unacceptable. We expect more from our students. CHS Administration
