Dear Parents of Choir and Band Students –
We invite you to an informational event that will address two large projects within the music department – hosting solo and ensemble festival on 3/12/16 and the 2017 Spring Music Tour to Nashville/Savannah/Louisville!
We will host this informational event on Monday, February 29 in the Engler Center for the Performing Arts at CHS. We will be available from 6-8 pm. The formal meeting will begin at 6:30 pm. We will be handing out preliminary itineraries/information/costs/chaperone opportunities for the trip and getting initial sign up numbers to continue planning. We will also be soliciting volunteers to help with solo/ensemble festival. We will need door monitors/room monitors/runners/judges’ lunch helpers/concession stand help. Parents and students can volunteer. All money earned from the concession stand will go toward the spring 2017 trip.
ALL 2016-2017 Choir and Band students are eligible to go on the spring 2017 trip – no matter what choir your child is registered for. Since this trip is the first combined band/choir trip, we feel it is important to have everyone on the same page hearing the same information at the same time. If you are a parent of a 2016 graduate that is performing at solo/ensemble, we would also like to have you at the meeting for volunteering purposes.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call/email and ask. The HS phone number is 849-2358.
Thanks so much!

Attention all parents and staff – the Speaker on WHAT IS BULLYING and CONFLICT RESOLUTION is being cancelled for tomorrow, Tuesday, February 2, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. due to the weather forecast.
We are hoping to reschedule for a later date.
A message from Dr. Claire Martin.........
A question that many people ask me – especially during the cold winter months is, "How cold does it have to be in order to close school?" Although there really is no "hard and fast" rule, the general standard/guideline that the Chilton Public Schools follow for school closings due to severe cold and wind chills is: -20 degrees temperature, and/or with sustained wind chills of -35 and below. There needs to be some point at which this decision is made. This is the guideline that I follow when making the decision for school cancellations or delays due to severely cold temperatures and/or wind chills.
