Welcome Parents and Families!

Welcome parents, families and friends of CHEC! You play an important role in your students’ middle and high school experience and we want to partner with you to ensure their success at CHEC.

On this section of the CHEC website, we hope to provide you with helpful information, access to all of our services, and avenues to direct your questions and concerns. We look forward to working with you.Parents are important members of our school community, and CHEC communicates and shares information in a variety of ways so that parents can participate in their child’s educational development and have a clear understanding of our mission, core values, programs, and policies. Regularly scheduled events throughout the year give parents additional opportunities to learn about CHEC and the specifics of what their child is learning and experiencing daily. Teachers, administrators and counselors routinely meet with parents to discuss their child’s progress and school experience and the Principal sponsors a series of roundtable discussions for parents to discuss topics of importance relating to student and family success.
