This year, all 10th-12th graders who want to see their schedule early will need to access it through their Aspen accounts. Schedules will be available to access no later than Thursday, July 29.
They will be able to receive a paper copy of their schedule in homeroom on Tuesday, Aug. 3rd. NO paper copies will be released early. All10th-12th graders should also know their Aspen account information.
Accounts will appear as disabled for any students who have “holds” on their accounts due to owing fees, books, etc. to the school. Aspen login information will NOT be provided over the phone or by email due to confidentiality.
All upcoming 9th graders will be able to pick-up their schedules on Thursday, July 29 during Freshman Family Night. This event will start promptly at 4 p.m. and will last until approximately 7 p.m. Freshmen and their families will begin in the gym. During these hours, information will be dispersed, schedules will be given, and students will be able to find their classes by walking around the campus.
Please note that July 29 is the ONLY available day for early schedule pick-up and touring for freshmen. If a student is unable to attend, they will receive their schedule on the first day of school, August 3.
As always, all schedules are tentative. The school reserves the right to change schedules at will without prior notice. Also, counselors will NOT accept requests for any schedule changes before the first day of school when the period of DROP/ ADD will begin. Students will be able to request changes by submitting a DROP/ADD form when they return to school. The deadline for submitting all DROP/ADD forms regarding student requests for class changes will be 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 6. Submitting a form does NOT guarantee a schedule change, especially if the student is in courses he/she initially requested at registration. Examples of requests for changes that are not granted include (but are not limited to) changing to have/not have a certain teacher, changing for lunch periods, wanting to be in class with a friend, etc.
If you have any questions about any of the above information, please call the CCHS main office at 423-623-8718 or the CCHS counseling office at 423-623-4010 during regular school hours on or after July 26.
