Community Memorandum

Week #2 at CHS ~ News and Information

Date: August 29, 2022

Community Members, Parents, Students, and Staff;

Cimarron High School is off to a great start for the 2022-23 school year!  Everyone is back and ready for success.  There are a couple of areas we wanted to address with you.  

Dress Code / Code of Conduct:

As we begin the year, we want to ensure the best possible environment for student success.  As new administrators, we have familiarized ourselves with existing guidelines, and will be emphasizing those as we move forward.  There have been no significant changes to these guidelines, though we have made them more visible and integral to how we work and learn together.

This includes a focus on our dress code and our student code of conduct. These guidelines were shared with students on their first school day, and we have made the handbook electronically available to all students and parents.  We ask for your support in these areas, and we welcome your feedback and questions at any time.

Building Access and Safety:

In today’s world, safety and security is a priority for our CHS students, staff and community members.  We now have ID badges for staff and students, and will have visitor passes at the front office for those wishing to visit our campus.  

We are rolling out community access guidelines for our CHS facilities this month.  These guidelines include Board of Education approval for new access key fobs, and times when community members are welcome to use our facilities throughout the year.  

Note:  If you are interested in accessing the CHS weight room or walking path and do not have your own key fob, please request one in person at the front desk.  

PDF documents for both topics are included here.  We join our Bluejay staff members, families, students, and community members in working toward greatness in all that we do.  We thank you for reviewing this memorandum. Please contact us with any questions!

Thank you!
