Clarksburg High School Students, Staff, and Families,
Hopefully you are a little more rested after clocks have moved back one hour back due to the end of Daylight Savings Time. Please continue to be vigilant during morning drop-off looking out for pedestrians, bikers, and other vehicles. Please wish luck to the Spirit of Clarksburg Marching Band which looks to complete its undefeated season with a State Championship today at Towson University. The Coyotes perform at 3:00pm. GO BLUE!
Schools are closed for students Monday due to a staff professional day and grading. Tuesday is election day and schools are closed. Make sure you get out and vote.
