I share information on how students can access extra help, and a brief note I sent to all students and staff this morning. I hope you have a great day.

Not surprising to wake up this morning and realize we still do not have a winner in the presidential election. The outcome might not be decided for days. Whether you care deeply about or are indifferent to the outcome, you cannot control the result. With a finite amount of energy to give, I suggest you focus it elsewhere as the country waits for an outcome to the election.
I include my blog from yesterday as a reminder of the expectations. Today school will operate normally, and I will reiterate that respect and tolerance will remain at the top of our priority list. All CCHS community members, regardless of their political affiliation, regardless of their political enthusiasm, or political indifference, will be made to feel safe, welcome, and respected today, tomorrow, and beyond.
If anything is to be celebrated today, it is the fact that our Democracy, our Constitutional Republic, is so ingrained that we nearly take it for granted. The right to vote in our country is sacred, and it is not lost on me that this election year coincides with the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The 1920 Constitutional Amendment was hundreds of years late, but it cemented Women's Natural born right to vote. Something to be celebrated on this day! Be well.
