School Day Information:
Students may enter the building at 7:30a.m. CHS offers a breakfast program. Students may not go upstairs before 7:50a.m. unless they have an extra curricular meeting scheduled for before school or a prearranged visit to a teacher. First period class will begin at 8:00a.m. and the school day concludes at 3:00p.m. Schedule alterations are made on occasion to accommodate student assemblies, special activities and any weather related delay or dismissal.
All facility enterences are electronically secured and monitored. Before entering a school building all visitors are required to announce their name and their reason for visiting through an intercom.
"All visitors to public schools in Indiana are required, by law, to report to the main office when they first arrive at the school."
Student Attendance: All absences require parent or guardian notification on the day of the absence. When a student is absent the parent or guardian should call 793-2286 before noon on each day of absence. The school may call the parent (at home or work) to verify the student’s absence.
The Covington Community School Corporation has adopted an attendance policy that limits the number of days/class periods a student may be absent from school each semester. This policy places the responsibility for attending school upon the student and their parents.
All students are expected to attend school regularly and to be on time for class in order to benefit from the instructional program and to develop habits of punctuality, self-discipline, and responsibility. A student, who is not regular in attendance, loses interest, tends to feel isolated, and drops out of school. The procedures we follow eliminate chronic absences, yet provide a manner in which a student may miss if there is a need – provided the school is notified.
Courtesy (Student) Telephone:
A courtesy (student) phone is available in the high school office during school hours. Please be courteous of others and limit the length of your call.
Lost & Found:
All articles found in or near the high school should be turned in to the main office. Lost articles may be claimed from this office, but they will be disposed of if not claimed within a reasonable length of time. Students should report any loss to the main office as soon as it is discovered. Each student should print in ink his/her name on tablets, gym clothes, tennis shoes, and books which are owned by the student. Students who drive to school should lock their cars. Avoid carrying large sums of money or things of great value to school. If a student must bring something of great value, bring it to the office for safe keeping during the school day. Ask for a receipt for money or the item kept in the office and one will be provided.
