Influenza or the flu as it is commonly called usually starts suddenly and may included the following symptoms: fever, headache, tiredness, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, diarrhea and vomiting. Having these symptoms does not always mean that your child has the flu. Many different illnesses, including the common cold, can have similar symptoms. It is very difficult to distinguish the flu from other infections on the basis of symptoms alone. A doctor’s exam is needed to tell whether you have the flu or not. Tests can determine if you have the flu as long as you are tested within the first 2 or 3 days of illness. The flu usually spreads from person to person when those who are infected cough or sneeze. There are a few things you can do to prevent getting the flu. Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective. Try to avoid close contact with sick people. And avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way. And most importantly: GET YOUR FLU VACCINE! These can be done at your doctor's office, health department, most walk in clinics and pharmacies also offer the flu vaccine as well.

Students and Parents - We will begin issuing parking spaces for the 2014-15 academic year at CHS beginning the week of March 24th. Mrs. Winchester will be set up during lunch in the commons office to sell parking spaces. We will have announcements each day as to what grade level will be offered the chance to purchase a parking space. We will begin with rising seniors and then after each senior has been accommodated, we will move on to rising juniors and then rising sophomores. Although spaces will be issued, static parking stickers will not be given to the students until the beginning of the 2014-15 school year when students come in to pick up schedules. In order to receive a parking space, each student must have the following items with him/her the day of purchase (No exceptions made):
