Appeal for letter in lieu of Pass/Fail grade.
Appeals for posting the student's letter grades in lieu of the Pass/Fail grade will only be approved when it is determined that not changing a Pass/Fail grade will result in a student not attaining admission to a specific college or a specific scholarship.  If the appeal is approved, letter grades will take the place of all P's during the 2020 Spring Semester and be applied to the transcript, but it will not impact class ranking.  This link will be available for the next three school years for students as they begin to apply for colleges and scholarships.

Message from Principal Ward -

Carson High School Senators and Families:

I hope you and your family are safe and healthy. I know that the current school closure has been difficult for both families and our students. I am contacting you to inform you that our teachers plan to support student learning using Google Classroom while the school is closed. Teachers will be accessible to their students during their regular classroom days and hours through the use of email, Google Classroom, or Google Meet. This timeframe will be outlined by each teacher in Google Classroom.

Students will need to have access to their Chromebook and their school email accounts. Please have your student check Google Classroom and their school email this week. There is a link labeled Distance Learning Access on this website with instructions for students that need assistance logging into email or Google Classroom.

Carson High School offices will be closed for the remainder of the school year.  There will be staff members monitoring phone calls.  You can also contact us via email at:

Senior Project Revised Information (new 4/6/20)

Seniors, Parents, Guardians and the CHS Community:

Due to the continued stay-at-home orders, the Senior Project Committee has moved the speeches and portfolio presentations to an online format during the week of
May 18-May 22.  This date was chosen to avoid conflicts with junior and senior AP testing that take place from May 11th-22nd. Students who are enrolled in AP Literature will present to their English teacher from May 18th through May 27th.

Today’s complications have forced us to remove the role of advisers for this year. Instead, projects will be presented in senior English teachers’ “classrooms.” 

Teachers will confirm the use of cameras and mics with their students so that speeches and portfolios can be orally and visually presented.

Teachers are also developing plans to schedule students in small virtual group presentations and to use rubrics for evaluations.

With all the disruption and disappointment the Class of 2020 has experienced because of the pandemic, it is important for CHS to acknowledge the work, the commitment and the time that this class gave to their projects. And while the projects will be presented in this modified format, CHS is committed to the graduation of this senior class.

Patt Quinn-Davis

Senior Project Committee

Senior Project Update

Seniors:The new dates to submit your portfolios to your English teacher will be April 29-30. These replace previous dates of April 23-24. 

Again, understand that as new information regarding the pandemic’s effects unfold, this information can be updated.

Paging Protocol

Parents/Guardians of Carson High School Students -

In an effort to minimize disruptions to the educational environment, Carson High School will no longer page students over the intercom. If you are dropping off items/lunch/notes to your student, please contact them and have them stop by the attendance office during breaks. If your student must leave during the day for any reason (medical, dental, appointment, etc.) please send your student with a note or call the attendance office the day before your student leaves.

Carson High School strives to keep a quiet peaceful learning environment for all students. Thank you for your continued cooperation.

Attendance Information:

Attendance & Finals:

Parents, students will not be called out of class early during semester finals or high stakes testing (ACT/End of Course, etc.). Take into consideration that calling into a classroom can disrupt the testing environment for students that are still testing. After testing, parents wanting to check out students will need to come to the school to check out their child. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
