A message from Principal Edward Owusu


Clarksburg High School Students, Staff, and Families,

Happy New Year! If you made any new year resolutions it's my hope that you are well on your way to a positive start, and if not there is always a fresh start every day! Students and staff return to school on Tuesday to begin a 4 day week of instruction. There are 4 weeks left in the marking period. This Thursday we welcome all incoming grade 9 parents and guardians (Class of 2027) to an informational meeting to learn about the registration process and their new high school for the next few years. Spread the word and read the latest information. (Please click this link to see our weekly newsletter.)

CHS has begun the registration process for students to enroll in courses for the 2023-2024 academic year. This Thursday, from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, we welcome all incoming grade 9 parents and guardians (Class of 2027) to an informational meeting to learn about the registration process and their new high school for the next few years. The meeting will be held in person in the CHS auditorium. We have reached out to our middle school partners of Rocky Hill and Hallie Wells as well as other middle schools in MCPS to share the date and time of the meeting. Please help spread the word if you know of a family that will have a student attending high school at CHS.

The registration process for our current students also begin this week. Grade 9 students will receive course registration information this week in English classes.

Senior students and parents - The TENTATIVE Date for our CHS Commencement Ceremony in June 5, 2023 at 10 am at Mount Saint Mary's College. We look forward to celebrating our Class of 2023 graduates in June!

As we return to school here is an important message from the MCPS School System Medical Officer. This message outlines efforts in reducing the potential impact of respiratory illnesses on the school system, in line with our commitment to wellbeing and learning. These efforts focus on reducing respiratory virus transmission, continuing COVID-19 mitigation to reduce spread in schools, and minimizing interruptions to learning.

As an athletics reminder CHS Basketball games have moved to Tier 1. This means student school identification cards are required for students, and only students at participating event schools may attend games alone. Students under age 18 may attend games with an adult if they attend another non participating school. Adult must stay for duration of the game.
