2020-21 Update from CKHS #30
March 27th

Dear Central Kitsap High School Students and Families,

Next week we will send home and publish to our website several documents that will explain our in-building procedures to be implemented after spring break on April 12th. Our goal is to make the transition as clear as we can. Here is a brief video produced in collaboration with our ASB leaders to share with your students to familiarize them with New CKHS COVID Procedures.

Student Parking: Student drivers are welcome to park on their in person A or B school days. Student parking is on the north side of the main drive next to the satellite gym, fast pitch field, and tennis courts. No passes will be sold or required through the remainder of the school year.

Student schedules: We will be mailing home paper copies of each student’s schedule with teacher names and room numbers. Students will also be provided with a student ID card and lanyard to wear while in person.

Students new to CKHS this year: If you missed the message yesterday, we are providing tours of campus for students/families new to CKHS. Tours will run next week (3/29-4-2) during the day and early evening, and after spring break (4/12-16) in the early evening. Each student is welcome to bring an adult with them on the tour. Follow this link to schedule a CKHS new student tour

Returning to in-person information and schedule
We are on track to return to in-person instruction first with our seniors on Monday, April 12th; followed by all other grade levels starting on Monday, April 19th. Students will receive in-person instruction two days each week on an AA/BB schedule. Students with the last names A-K will be in the AA group (Monday-Tuesday), and students with last names L-Z will be in the BB group (Thursday-Friday).

ASB and extra-curricular

Please contact our Activities Coordinator/ASB Advisor, Daniel Sullivan (Daniels@ckschools.org) with any questions.

Class of 2021 Seniors
Reminder: Your cap and gown packet orders will be here and available for pick up on April 1st. Please review your email from 3/20 or check the Class of 2021 Google Classroom for specific pick up instructions.

We are working with the very recent updated guidance from the CDC and the governor’s office as we build our end of year events for seniors. Before spring break I will have updates on Senior Awards Night, Graduation, and hopefully Prom. Our goal is to provide as many in-person experiences as we can for our seniors. 

Spring break
Spring break will be the week of April 5 through 9. This has been without question a very difficult year and we hope all our students and families have a chance to rest and recharge a bit as we get ready for the final three months of the school year. This is also a good time to get caught up on work so students are ready to go upon return to in-person. Please encourage your students to check in with their teachers this week regarding any missing work and, if necessary have them develop a schedule and plan that fits their needs and strengths in order to catch up.

Guidance counseling corner
Counselors are available for appointments through their BookMe appointment calendars and Counselors will hold Office Hours via Zoom every Wednesday from 10:30-11:30am. They are now holding this through individual Zoom meetings.
