Good afternoon Cougars and Cougar Families!


On behalf of the Central Kitsap High School staff, I hope everyone reading this has had the opportunity to recharge this summer by spending time doing activities you enjoy with the people closest to you.


We are preparing for students and teachers to return to the classroom together on the first day of school Wednesday, September 7th. 


To make sure all students are ready to go, we would like to invite everyone to attend Maze Days next week. At Maze Days students will:

  • Pick up a first draft of their class schedule
  • Get their pictures taken for yearbook and ID cards
  • Meet student leaders to learn about Cougar Clubs and Activities
  • Pick up a planner (free for grades 9 and 10)
  • Complete parking pass forms (for grades 11 and 12)
  • Return checked out books and materials from prior years
  • Meet with our Bookkeeper to make purchases or pay fees
  • Walk and get familiar with the building, and more...


The 11th and 12th grade Maze Day is Thursday, August 25th from 8:00am until noon.


The 9th and 10th grade Maze Day is Friday, August 26th from 8:00am until noon.


For 11th and 12th grade students who are out of town and unable to attend, the parking pass form will also be posted online August 25th. after 12pm. Parking passes will not be distributed during Maze. Students will receive an email in CK Student account when their form has been processed with instructions for how to pay the parking fee and collect their parking pass.

Student access to PowerSchool will be available starting on the first day of school.  

Schedules will also be distributed on the first day of school and there will be a photo make-up day for students who are unable to attend Maze.
