  • April 20th (4.20) has been proclaimed in Washington State as Talk With Your Kids About NOT Using Marijuana Day. Join parents in observing this day by having a frank family conversation about marijuana using straightforward, factual information.

    Marijuana affects each individual differently, and no matter how it is used, can cause unwanted side effects. Short-term effects of marijuana include problems with memory and learning, distorted perception (sights, sounds, time, and touch), trouble with thinking and problem solving, loss of motor coordination, increased heart rate and anxiety. These effects are even greater when other drugs are taken with marijuana. Marijuana is unlikely to result in permanent disability or death, but too much of the drug in a person’s system can have harmful effects, and isn’t as benign as some teens want you to believe. Marijuana can increase risk of chronic cough, bronchitis and schizophrenia in vulnerable individuals. It also may increase risk of anxiety, depression and a series of attitude and personality changes. These changes can also include poor performance in school, eating and sleeping problems. Marijuana, just like any other drug, can lead to addiction. It affects the brain’s reward system in the same way as all other drugs of addiction — and the likelihood of addiction increases considerably for those who start young.

  • Safety: CHS Closed Campus Update

    Nearly all high schools have short lunch periods, generally between 30 and 40 minutes. The time pressure to get lunch and get back to class creates a near road race mentality, and that is part of the problem.

    The most compelling reason to close high school campuses during lunch is the same reason that elementary and middle/Jr. high schools campuses are closed -- student safety.

    A closed campus is safer for students. The likelihood of a fatal automobile accident in a high school cafeteria is minimal. The ability for school administrations to control who is allowed on campus is greatly enhanced.

    Cited from 

    Beginning with the 2015-16 school year, we will be phasing in a Closed Campus for students. We are concerned about student safety and providing appropriate supervision of students during the school day. We cannot supervise students when they are off campus during lunch.

    There is a perception that most students are leaving campus to eat lunch. However, in a survey conducted in the spring of 2015, the number of students purchasing lunches at local establishments was actually quite low.

    In 2015-16, seniors only will be eligible to apply for off campus permits. Beginning in 2016-17, there will be no off campus permits issued. 

    Students with legitimate reasons to leave campus will still be able to do so with prior permission.

    • We will be printing our own student IDs this year, and students who are in Pi, Running Start, or Skills Center will have special IDs that identify them and their schedules.
    • Students with appointments should continue to sign out through the office.

    We will continue to work with Food Services to provide food options on campus and also expect to increase opportunities for student clubs/activities at lunch.

    We never know what accident, problem, or tragedy we prevent.

  • Marijuana Use Prevention

    As you are aware, marijuana was legalized in our state this past year, and licensed stores will begin selling marijuana in the Spring. However, marijuana use is still illegal for anyone under the age of 21. Research shows that parents are the primary influence on their child’s behavior, making parents essential to prevention. Here are some helpful prevention guides.
