This is a reminder that the OGT testing is March 10-14. Freshmen, sophomores, and students yet to pass the OGT are required to be at CHS at the regular time during the week of March 10. Sophomores are to report immediately to the cafeteria for breakfast. Freshmen are to report to their testing sites. A list of names and testing sites are posted in the cafeteria, outside the guidance office, and on the windows of the main office. If your name is not on the list or you have questions or concerns, please see Mrs. Kobe immediately. Once testing periods begin, students will NOT be permitted to enter testing rooms and will have to make up the test the following week.

Do not abuse this privilege. All non-testing juniors or seniors who are tardy during this week will receive a detention, if you are late a second day you will receive a Saturday School. Make sure you are in class and ready to begin at 9:44 am.
