I write to wish you and your family a fantastic break filled with lots of memories. The school-work free break hopefully makes space for that to occur. Further, I want to draw your attention to my correspondence with the entire school, and Dr. Hunter's correspondence to all members of the CCHS educational community. Both come with a deep appreciation for all the support provided to so many in need over the last few weeks.
As we all leave for the break, I want to share a heartfelt thank you for a school community that demonstrated their care for one another over the past few weeks. It is always important to care for one another, but ensuring CCHS is a kind, welcoming place where everyone feels supported is never more critical than when we are grieving; one of many reasons CCHS is a remarkable school.
We hope vacation provides a well-deserved respite, and time spent with family and friends is filled with fun and laughter. If, however, there is a time that you need or a friend needs help, please talk with a trusted adult. Everyone needs help sometimes, and those connections will provide needed support.
For some the change in routine is hard, and support does not seem as readily available. We wanted to be sure that help was accessible through the upcoming week.

Dr. Hunter's Correspondence
We reach the break with gratitude for what community brings to us. The past two weeks brought a sense of togetherness that I have heard in ongoing conversations, ideas, and acts of support to one another. This, undoubtedly, strengthens us in good times and bad.
The upcoming week will be one of travel, joy, respite and relaxation. Sometimes, though, the change in routine is hard and support does not seem as easily available if needed. We wanted to be sure that support was accessible through the upcoming week.
