Canton High News

As you may know, in August when your student returns to school, Canton High School will have a new modified schedule that will include an 8 period day. There are several goals with this new schedule.  First, it will give students opportunities for additional electives which will allow for the attainment of 25 credits which are required for graduation beginning with the class of 2019.  Also, it should prove to reduce scheduling conflicts and provide more opportunities for student internships, VHS courses and is in alignment with the state graduation requirement that all students earn a credit in Senior Capstone. 

As we have done in previous years, all students will participate in our CHAT (Canton High Advisory Time) each Wednesday.  Student lunch periods have been scheduled into D, E, F or G period. 

Mon, Tues*, Thurs, Fri

You should have received a couple of emails earlier this week which contained several forms which need to be completed each year.  In the past, these forms were sent home with students and then returned to the school.  However, this year, in a precautionary measure given Covid-19, we have decided to take a ‘hands free’ approach and ask you to complete these forms electronically.
