CHS Walkout Information

Please check this page often since the information here could change very rapidly

Parents and Students,

As you heard or read from Mr. Frazier on the district All Call, school will be suspended on April 2-6 due to the teacher walkout.

I wanted to inform you on the plans for scheduled events here at the high school for that week.  The administrators will be at the high school building.

1.  JUNIOR ACT APRIL 3 - This is scheduled by ACT for Tuesday, April 3.  This is the one free ACT all of our juniors take.  We will still administer the ACT here at the high school on Tuesday.  Juniors need to show up at 7:30 am, and the testing will start at 8:00 am.  They should be done around 12:30 pm.  We will provide breakfast and lunch.  Parents and juniors, the ACT is very important and a state requirement for graduation.

2. Any OSSAA scheduled events (fine arts, sports, etc) will go on as scheduled.

3.  ZAP Cancelled - ZAP enrollment was scheduled for Thursday night and Friday morning, and it is suspended because the teachers are a necessary component of this process.  This is an awesome opportunity for us to talk to parents and their child about their future plans and requested classes for next year.  We use these numbers to build our schedule for next year.  We prepared for this situation by having all of the students hand in their practice course request sheets at the last ZAP meeting before Spring Break.  We are going to use these to enter the request and start the scheduling process for next year.  Your child brought home a copy of this course request sheet.  Please look it over and if there are any changes, either give us a call or email us the changes.  918-923-4211

9th Mr. Key bkey@claremore.k12.ok.us; 10th Mr. Hurt jhurt@claremore.k12.ok.us; 11th Ms. Garroutte kgarroutte@claremore.k12.ok.us; 12th Mr. Hindenburg khindenburg@claremore.k12.ok.us

4.  Prom - Prom is still going on as scheduled at NOAH venue in Broken Arrow, 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

I also wanted to let you know how well your children behaved during our evacuation on Tuesday.  They listened and obeyed the instructions that were given them.  Even though I am sure it didn't make sense to them at the time, even when we asked them to drop their back packs along with their belongings, they did it without questioning.  I also wanted to thank you, the parents, for understanding, helping, and patiently waiting for your awesome children.  I am so proud of our staff, students, parents, police, and community.  I have always known that each day is a great day to be a Zebra, but on Tuesday the ZEBRAS, big and small, WERE PHENOMENAL!

Thank you, and GO ZEBRAS!

Kerri Garroutte
