Hurricane Irma Update
Thank you for your patience as we continue to monitor the path of this unprecedented storm. We expect the initial impact of hurricane Irma to hit Clinch County in the evening or early morning hours on Monday, September 11. Unfortunately, weather experts predict sustained winds potentially impacting our region over a 24 to 28-hour time span – with the greatest potential for tornados between Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. Our road and power crews will need time on Wednesday to ensure the safe return of staff and students. Therefore, we will close our schools through Wednesday, September 13. If any updates to our schools resuming on Thursday, September 14 are necessary, we will send another phone message to parents by noon on Wednesday, September 13. Please continue to monitor our local social media sites for information regarding areas being prepared for residents who cannot safely shelter in place. We are praying for the best, but preparing for the worst. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we do our best to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and residents.
Dear Students and Parents,
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Clinch County High School, the #1 high school in the Okefenokee RESA district, and the #16 high school in the whole state of Georgia according to the new College and Career Readiness Performance Index! CCHS has a very proud history, filled with rich traditions and many accomplishments, both academic and extracurricular. We urge you, the students, to become actively involved in your academic studies, as well as extracurricular activities that add so much to your high school memories!
The faculty, staff, and administration are excited about serving the educational needs of this community. We, as a school, will be doing all we can do to ensure that all students learn at high levels, behave while they are here, learn good work ethics, and have a little fun all at the same time. During the school year, CCHS staff will be focusing on the new Common Core Georgia Performance Standards and Literacy Standards set forth by the state of Georgia. We will be striving to ensure that every child is successful, safe, and enjoys the academic and extracurricular opportunities that CCHS has to offer.
Students, we urge you to focus more on your academic studies. Set your goals high… take our most rigorous classes, attend classes every day, and study a little every day. Put forth 100% effort and it will pay off. There are lots of fun incentives that you can take part in if you meet the requirements.
Parents, please, become more actively involved in your child’s education. Please emphasize school attendance. Students cannot learn if they are not at school. Please emphasize high academic expectations for your child. Also, please monitor the academic progress of your child closely. PowerSchool is an excellent online resource for you to monitor your child on a daily basis from home or work. Also, make it a priority to visit and call your child’s teachers. Let them know that “Failure is Not an Option” for your child and that you are willing to do whatever it takes for your student to excel and receive a diploma. Come early and come often. You are always welcome at CCHS. With this type of expectation, involvement, support, and encouragement, we believe that your child will have a very successful high school experience.
It is truly an honor for Mr. Hatton and me to serve as administrators of Clinch County High School. We believe that if we work together to ensure high levels of learning and a high school diploma for all, then “Failure will Not be an Option” any longer for our students.
Denise Brown, Principal
