WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!
Greetings Cass Tech Families,
We are so excited and can’t wait to see you for the first time in years together face to face under one roof. We are ready and set to make your first day memorable and filled with enthusiasm. Our entire staff has been preparing for you and have organized a fun educational day.
The first day of school for students will be August 29, 2022, from 8:00 am to 3:20 pm. Our dress code information will be included in the attachment.
Our initiatives this year are mental health, improving academic performance, improving chronic absenteeism, strengthening school communication, following COVID protocols and continuing our “Respect Campaign”.
I am truly excited to introduce our new PTA president, Mrs. Chaundra Frierson-Haynes (firstname.lastname@example.org) and our new SAC president, Mrs. Ishron Reynolds. We look forward to a continued and productive parent association, because an informed and active parent is one of the most impactful ingredients of a successful school.
WE NEED OUR PARENTS INVOLVED!
High school is a time for change. This year we plan to focus on the well-being of our students and staff. Mental health support will be at the forefront of our school's number one initiative. We have partnered with Family Medical Center to provide daily, on-site support for our students.
Our senior class graduated 99.1% of their seniors and they earned over 60 million dollars in scholarships. Let’s continue this tradition of excellence. We plan to have a club day where students can meet the members of various clubs for you to join.
On Wednesday, August 24, 2022, from 12pm to 3pm, 9th grade, and new students only will pick up their schedules at Cass Tech using the Second Street entrance only. In addition, we plan to take ID pictures of our incoming ninth graders and new students on Wednesday, August 24th. Grades 10th through 12th will have access to their 2022 schedule via PowerSchool. Paper schedule pick-up will not be available to returning students.Did you miss it? WATCH NOW : JOIN US FOR OUR BACK TO SCHOOL ORIENTATION for Parents and Students
Upper classmen will take their ID pictures during their scheduled lunch assignment once school starts.
Once students receive their schedule and notice any errors, it is important that students follow the class error change form instructions that will be shared with students who have schedule errors. This process will be addressed once the correction form has been received by the counselor. All students must follow the schedule that they receive even if there are errors, and counselors will make the changes and contact the student with a revised schedule.
Two initiatives that are being discussed are making Cass Tech a Covid Testing Site, similar to Renaissance and East English Village; as well as, being able to utilize the outside terrace for lunch during the winter months by installing the necessary equipment and heaters.
Staff will report to Cass Technical High School on Monday, August 22, 2022 at 9 am, in the Dining Commons.
Our report card for this school year is a B, we dropped 4 points from last year’s A, but with a 99.1% graduation rate we are well on our back to an A.
As your principal, I am here to provide leadership to our school community and welcome you to share this role as we strive to make this school year memorable and exciting for our most precious jewel, our CT students.
