CHHS News and Announcements
Dear Trojan Family,
It has been an honor to serve as the principal of Charles Henderson High School during the 2019-2020 school year and I am excited to embark on the upcoming year! While we are still unsure of how things will look during this pandemic, we have been working diligently at Charles Henderson High School to ensure our students remain safe during the reopening of the 2020-2021 school year. We ask for your patience and understanding during this process as no plan will be perfect for everyone.
We will be offering three learning options for the upcoming school year. The first option will be a traditional setting. For this option the student will attend all classes on campus in a traditional face to face format. Option two will be a virtual option where students will be enrolled in virtual classes through Edmentum, Access, Google Classroom, or Schoology. For the virtual option students will not take classes on campus. Once a student begins the virtual option they must commit to it for the entire semester. Option three will be a blended option where students will enroll in an individualized schedule that will allow for both virtual and traditional courses to be taken in one semester. While the student will choose which courses they would like to take both on and off campus and virtually they will not be able to choose which block their on-campus classes will be taken.
The Charles Henderson High School leadership team has been working on a plan to ensure the safety of those students and staff who will be on campus during the 2020-2021 school year. Our goal is to ensure that in our classrooms student desks will be at least 6 feet apart. Desks will be cleaned and sanitized between each class. Door handles and hand rails will be sanitized between blocks. During transition times there will be a one way traffic flow in all buildings. Students will be screened every morning with a touchless thermometer and there is protocol in place for those with high readings. We will also be limiting the sharing of classroom items and supplies. Students will be eating lunch in their classroom for the first semester.
Each student will be required to have a face mask with them at all times on campus. Face masks will be mandatory during transition times in hallways, in bathrooms, and anytime there is less than 6 feet between people. One reusable face mask will be provided for each student who has chosen to attend classes on campus. Students who are not comfortable wearing face masks will have the option of virtual classes. Those students who do not comply with the Charles Henderson Henderson High School safety protocol will be disciplined accordingly.
Drop off and pick up procedures will be changed for the first semester. Students will not be allowed on campus for drop off before 7:15 a.m. Once they are dropped off on campus they must social distance and remain outside until 7:45 a.m. when they will enter their classrooms. During this time, breakfast will be offered for students and they will be able to pick up a grab and go or eat in the cafeteria as long as space is available. Seats in the cafeteria will be marked off during breakfast to ensure social distancing.
We thank you for your patience during this time!

If you missed the deadline to order you can still purchase a copy at the link below.
All seniors were asked to respond to a senior survey. One of the questions on the survey asked for the name of the university, trade school, etc. where the senior's final transcript was to be sent. Many seniors have not yet responded with that information. Seniors, please provide Mrs. Tate with that information. If you don't have access to the survey, you may email Mrs. Tate at firstname.lastname@example.org with the information. Please make sure your email contains your name and the name of the institution where you want your transcript sent.
Current Plans Regarding Beginning of 2020-2021 School Term
Current plans are for students to return to school on Thursday, August 20th, to begin the 2020-2021 school term. The entire academic calendar can be found on the "Academic Calendar" link below the pictures on this website.
Dear Trojan Family,
Per the Troy City Schools Academic Continuity Plan, the final course grade for second-semester courses will be the third-nine weeks' grade. Students currently failing the third-nine week period will be given every opportunity to improve that grade. Each student who is currently failing will be contacted by their teacher and an individual plan will be prepared to ensure they are given the opportunity to successfully complete the course.
As always, we will begin the next school year by assessing our students' needs and meeting them where they are to help them succeed. Additionally, due to the lack of continuity of high school courses and semesters, we will provide some enrichment in critical standards to meet the students' needs over the next nine weeks. Student participation is crucial in order to prepare for future academic coursework. Each teacher will be available for students daily and respond to all communication in a timely manner. If any student is in need of a Chromebook or paper copies of assignments please contact your teacher so we can make this happen.
Students enrolled in AP courses will have the opportunity to take their exams in an online format. The exams will cover the material that most schools were able to cover before March and will be comprised of a 45-minute free-response question. Students may access the AP YouTube Channel for live classes and recordings covering the content found on these new exams. Exam dates and information regarding the submission of exams will be posted on the AP College Board website on April 3 and communicated to students by their teachers starting April 6.
Seniors, the Troy City Schools Academic Continuity Plan states that seniors who are on track to graduate and in good standing as of the third-nine weeks reporting period will be considered “as meeting the graduation requirements” for the State of Alabama. Those students who are enrolled in a fourth nine weeks class that was not offered in the third nine-week period, like Economics, must still complete the assignments given to receive that credit which is needed for graduation. Students enrolled in the Ready to Work or MSSC classes will also need to complete their work in order to credential and complete the program. Seniors who are not on track to graduate will be given the opportunity for credit recovery. The ALSDE has waived all testing requirements due to the pandemic; therefore, successful completion of the Civics Exam is not a requirement for this year’s graduation.
I am beyond thankful for each and every one of you and know we can get through these uncertain times together!

Information on Coronavirus Disease
TCS Families, Faculty, and Staff,
We want to let you know about our efforts to monitor coronavirus disease 2019, also known as COVID-19. The 2019 novel (or new) coronavirus causes a potentially severe respiratory illness. It was recently identified in China and is now being detected worldwide. Currently, there are no known cases in Alabama. We are coordinating with the Alabama Department of Public Health,
local healthcare authorities, and the State Department of Education to be prepared with the most up-to-date information and guidance involving the virus.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) has guidelines in place for anyone who has traveled internationally to certain affected geographic areas. Find more resources about 2019 coronavirus through the Alabama Department of Public Health and Centers for Disease Control. The CDC also provides specific information for travelers. This information includes a list of areas with the sustained transmission of the virus and/or travel restrictions to the United States.
According to CDC guidance, those returning from China or areas with active community transmission of 2019 coronavirus will have at least some restrictions on their interactions for 14 days after leaving the affected areas. According to ADPH, any students or staff in this group must remain out of school for the duration of this period. On March 5, the Troy City Schools
Board of Education authorized the Interim Superintendent to follow all guidelines and exercise guidance from ADPH regarding the 2019 coronavirus. This includes any amendments to the guidance moving forward. Parents/guardians, faculty, and staff should notify your school’s principal of any upcoming out-of-country travel plans.
In our schools, everyday health practices remain important. We encourage
our students and staff to:
- stay home when sick and until you are fever-free for at least 24 hours after
the last administration of fever-reducing medicine.
- practice frequent hand washing for at least 20 seconds at a time.
- cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve.
- avoid touching your face, mouth, nose, and eyes.
- avoid being around those who are sick.
Although it will not prevent coronavirus, a flu shot is still recommended for those who have not had one this flu season. Ample cleaning supplies are in our schools and our custodians disinfect high-contact surfaces. Plans are currently being finalized for a meeting in the coming days, among local healthcare and education leaders, to discuss monitoring and prevention of 2019 novel coronavirus.
Families can stay up to date on 2019 novel coronavirus and recommended actions through the Centers for Disease Control and Alabama Department of Public Health. If new information results in how our schools respond to 2019 novel coronavirus, TCS will communicate this information to you.
- stay home when sick and until you are fever-free for at least 24 hours after
