Referrals to the Learning Center can be facilitated by members of the Counseling and/or Administrative Staff. In the Learning Center, students struggling with core subjects receive intensive intervention strategies to help them grasp concepts taught in their classes. Please remember, all sophomores with one or more failing grades will be re-scheduled for the second semester into the closed campus lunch period to attend intervention opportunities provided in the Learning Center.

SAFE SCHOOLS REMINDER!
Safe Schools Reminder!
Due to an increse in these types of activities within our school district, we think there is a need to present this "safe schools" reminder to all. Failure to comply will lead to suspension/expulsion and arrest.
Student and staff safety is an important priority at all CUSD schools. Parents are asked to remind their students not to bring "look-alike" guns to school. "Look-alike" weapons include items such as air soft guns, paint ball guns or other "toy-type" guns. Students found in possession of these items could face school disciplinary measures such as a suspension or expulsion and possibly criminal charges. It is not permissible to store these items in backpacks, school lockers or personal vehicles parked on campus.
Students are not allowed to bring real firearms, ammunition, weapons, knives/razor blades and other dangerous items to school.
Please call or email our school administration, should you have any questions about this reminder.
Thank you for your continued efforts in keeping our schools safe!
