Cavaliers Prepare for Start of Year
Welcome back to school! The staff at Cuthbertson High School is excited to be gearing up for our 7th amazing year! We would like to extend a big welcome to all our new and returning students. On the first day for students, Monday, August 24, doors will open at 7:30am and the first bell rings at 7:50am. Students should plan to report to homerooms to receive important information at that time. A listing of homerooms will be published prior to the start of school.
There are several important dates to be aware of in the first couple of weeks. Open House will be held Thursday, August 20, from 5:30-7:30. This is a time for students and their families to locate their classrooms, familiarize themselves with the school layout, order PE uniforms, obtain bus information, and purchase spirit wear, yard signs, and laptop covers. There will also be opportunities to learn about and join the PTSO, Band Boosters, and Athletic Boosters.
The first day of school is Monday, August 24. Monday, September 7, is the Labor Day Holiday, and Monday, September 21, is our fall semester Meet the Teacher / Curriculum Night from 6-8 pm. This event gives parents the opportunity to go through a mini version of their child’s day and spend time with their teachers learning more about the curriculum and course requirements.
As in the past, all UCPS high school students will be issued Lenovo chromebooks to use for instruction throughout the school year. In order to receive a laptop, students must return a completed Student/Parent/Guardian Laptop Agreement form along with a required $25 fee that covers insurance. Please click here for the 2015-16 agreement form. Click here to access it in Spanish. Accepting a school laptop indicates agreement with the UCPS Acceptable Use Guidelines. Please click here to review the Guidelines and here to view them in Spanish.
There are several athletic events planned in the coming weeks. These may be viewed on the school website calendar and also through our weekly E-news called The Cavalier Circular. Sign up for Enews here if you haven’t already! You may also stay up to date on CHS events through Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/CuthbertsonHS.NC and Twitter at #CHSCavaliers.

It’s going to be a great year – welcome back, Cavaliers!
