At the beginning of each sports season all fines and fees must be paid prior to participation in practice or games. This includes, but is not limited to overdue books, club fees, art fees, shop fees, and uniforms.
Students participating in school athletics and their parents or guardians must read and sign the CHS Athletic Handbook, which is available from their coaches.

Grades will be monitored at each grading period. In order to maintain athletic and activity eligibility the student shall have passing grades in their current courses at each grading period. This means students will not be able to participate in any competition or activity with an F in any subject. If a student receives an F at the progress grading period they will meet with the coach and the Athletic Director and be placed on probation. If at the end of the two-week probation period an F is still present the student will be placed on a weekly grade monitoring system for the duration of the sport season.
Pupils must be in attendance for all periods on a day to be eligible to compete or practice on that day, unless permission is granted by the principal or athletic director. Unexcused absences may result in discipline by the coach or advisor. Any absence from a regularly scheduled session without the coach/advisor's authorization, either by prearrangement or by a valid excuse from home, shall be disciplined at the discretion of the coach/advisor in charge. Students are responsible for any work they miss due to an athletic or activity trip. Arrangements should be made with teachers of those classes to be missed prior to leaving on the trip .
Attendance: Practices / Games
Regular attendance along with promptness is imperative if you are to succeed. Occasionally, it may be necessary for you to be either absent or late. However, common courtesy dictates that you notify your coach/advisor in advance, or that you have a valid excuse when you return. Coaches/Advisors will specify their own set of rules concerning being tardy and absences.
