Summer School 2016 - Carson High School
Parents and Students,
Seniors return Chromebooks May 25-26 during US Government Class. 9th - 11th grades return Chromebooks during B6 Thursday, June 2.
What are the repair fees for Chromebook damage?
Can I keep my Chromebook over the summer?
Any student in AP/Honors classes or taking summer school classes may turn in a signed permission slip to keep the Chromebook over the summer. Permission slips are available in the Guidance Office and Student Financance Office. Return signature page to Mrs. Cambell in the library before finals week.
If you have a power cord that does not belong to you, bring it to the library. If your missing power cord is turned in, a message will be sent to you. During Chromebook returns, if your power cord does not have a barcode to match the Chromebook, you will be charged a $20 replacement fee.
Carson City School District/Infinite Campus
The Carson City School District will be changing student information systems for the 2016/2017 school year from PowerSchool to Infinite Campus.
With the new change to Infininte Campus, the District is excited about the potential the Campus Portal provides for keeping parents/guardians informed. Parents will still have access to their student's schedules, attendane information, school announcements and more. Additionally, online registration will be included in the Campus Portal for families to complete annual updates for the 2016-2017 school year.
For more information about Infinite Campus, visit the Carson City School District website at http://www.carsoncityschools.com and click on the Infinite Campus Icon.
Changes to Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures
During a recent safety visit by the Carson City Fire Marshall it was brought to our attention that the curb in front of the high school must be painted red as fire codes require this area to be kept clear for emergency vehicles. Over the holiday break, the curb will be painted red. Please do not park on the right hand side of the curb because this is the fire lane. After the holiday break, when you come to school for morning drop off or afternoon pick up, please be mindful of this change. The fire lane will be blocked with safety cones and district safety officers will be outside to monitor the situation. Drivers may park along the YELLOW curb only. Do not stop at the first spot if there is room to pull all the way forward along the yellow curb so that others may park and to avoid congestion at the driveway entrance. There will be two lanes of travel on the inside, between the yellow curb and the fire lane. Do not double park across the lane of travel. Sheriff's Deputites will be ticketing for violations of parking rules. Your patience and courtesy towards other drivers and our safety officers is appreciated.
Yearbooks are now available for online purchase. Click the ad below to order your yearbook.
If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Quinn Davis at PQuinn-Davis@carson.k12.nv.us.
