The Flag Salute is read the first school day of each week. Announcements are read over the intercom each day at the beginning of second period and distributed to all teachers. Students should listen carefully for important information.

Parents are always welcome and encouraged to visit their student's classes. Prior to their visit, parents must first contact the main office and make arrangements with CHS administration prior to visiting their student's classroom.
If possible, it is recommended that parents contact CHS administration 24 hours in advance in order to arrange a visit.Students are not allowed to host other students.
Our secretary and student aides are instructed not to accept telephone message for students from anyone but parents/guardians.
We further request parents restrict their calls to unusual or unforeseen reasons to eliminate interruptions of classes. We earnestly request that you plan ahead and eliminate these calls whenever possible. Your cooperation in this matter will be appreciated.
We ask our students to use the pay telephone located outside the Activity Room for personal calls. If a student is ill or having some difficulty, we will call you or have the student call in our presence.
We are sorry that we cannot allow our general student body to have free access to our business telephones, but we cannot transact school business if our lines are jammed with personal telephone calls made by students. The pay telephone charge is $.50.
It is difficult to stress an academic atmosphere and allow classes to be interrupted for festive occasions for individual students. If flowers are delivered to school, florists are to bring them to the main office and students will be called to receive them; however, we will avoid calling students out of class for this. We would like to ask your cooperation in sending "surprise" visitors to our building to celebrate a birthday. We would prefer that such guests not appear. However, please call the main office to inform one of the administrators if a visit is to be made. Please confine such visits to the lunchtime. We will not allow such visitors into the classrooms or call students from class for this.
Each student is issued a school locker at the beginning of the school year. Two (2) students are assigned to each locker. A student must keep their assigned locker the entire school year. Changes will be made only on an emergency basis. The school, its personnel, and the members of the School Board, assume no responsibility for items stolen from student lockers at Creswell High School.
Students are urged not to place money or valuable items in lockers for safekeeping. Lockers are in good working order at the beginning of the school year and every effort will be made to keep the lockers in proper repair. It is the student's responsibility to maintain proper care of the school locker. Damage to lockers, other than normal wear, will result in a charge to the occupants for the repair of that locker.
The schools are properly concerned about the use of the lockers for storage of illegal items.
Lockers may be opened at the discretion of building administrators in a prudent way, at an appropriate time, and in a reasonable manner; however, lockers may be searched on a random or pre-announced basis in order to ensure they are not being used for improper purposes.
