7:25 AM (47 minutes ago)

to chflo-students, CHFLO-Staff
Welcome to another Fantastic Friday at our Mecca of Excellence! Today is an “A” day. The class starts at 7:45 am. Please arrive on time, with your mask on, ready to learn!
9th grade Assemblies
This assembly will take place in the cafeteria.  An announcement will be made when students are to be dismissed from their classes to attend the assembly.  Please note that each assembly will take place during the last 35 minutes of each class for periods 1, 2, and 4.
This will ensure that the majority of instructional time is not interrupted and that there is limited movement throughout the halls. This will also afford assemblies 1 and 2 to be dismissed during the normal transitional instructional times and will allow assembly 3 to be dismissed with the first floor at the end of the day.
1st Period:    A  – F
2nd Period:  G – O
4th Period:    P – Z
Removal of masks- Cease and desist
It has been advised that students are removing each other’s masks as a type of “prank”. Please be clear that we are still in the midst of a pandemic and mask mandates are still in effect and will be enforced. If you are found to be participating in this “prank’ we will have no choice but to discipline you accordingly.

Driving School- With Scholarships!

On-time arrival 

Kudos to all of the students who make on-time arrival a priority! Please be advised that the school day begins at 7:45 am. Arrival after this time constitutes tardiness, will be recorded and could have academic ramifications. During the school day, a warning bell is rung one minute prior to the late bell each period. To assist with ensuring that students focus on arriving on time, we will be conducting periodic “hall sweeps” where students will be documented and parents contacted. Continued “hall sweep” infractions will be addressed using progressive discipline. Please focus on getting to class on time!

Hall sweeps

Beginning Monday, November 8th, Hallsweeps will occur at the late bell. Teachers will be directed to lock their door when the late bell sounds. There will not be a countdown. I appreciate your efforts in arriving to class on time. For those that do not, we will use these progressive discipline measures to address tardiness:

1st instance- Verbal warning

2nd instance- Phone call home

3rd instance- Parent Conference

4th instance- ISS for a period

5th instance- ISS for the day

6th instance and subsequent infractions- Suspension

Mandatory Uniform

Please be advised that we are a mandatory uniform school. Though we have loosened the requirements, at the minimum you must have some type of black pants and a green shirt under your outerwear item. Those failing to wear the uniform will receive parent contact.
