    Credit Recovery*: Students who need to recover credit due to a failing grade should contact Joyce Bell. Students may recover credit in Science, Math, English, or American History. CHS teachers will be facilitating the credit recovery courses online. Credit Recovery registration ends June 2, 2020.
