Back to School Plan
(Please check our website frequently for updates as things change on a daily basis) Updated July 17, 2020
STATUS CHANGE: Full Distance Learning will be implemented for all students until September 14.
Welcome to the CHS Back to School website. For SY 2020-2021, Castle High School will implement a new two-day rotation model and schedule to reduce the number of students at school by 50% because of new health and safety requirements. Students will attend school in person twice a week to comply with social distancing requirements. This model blends face to face instruction in school with online distance learning at home. CHS is also offering a Distance Learning Option for parents that do not wish to send their child to school due to COVID-19. The Distance Learning option is an education delivery model that solely utilizes online or remote interaction between teachers and students.
The deadline to designate distance learning as the preferred learning model is Friday, August 7, 2020 (Updated Date). If you do not complete this form opting in to distance learning, we look forward to seeing you in our A/B Two Day Rotation Learning Model.
