Special Message from Mr. Wyckoff:

Cougar Parents and Students,

I hope this message finds you well! From all indications I have, it looks like the Boone County

Schools will be transitioning to “Yellow” on 9/28. I am very excited to even have the potential of

students coming back into my building, it’s been a very long 202 days! We can all help to

ensure we continue to move forward in the process of getting students and society back to a

more normalized situation by practicing social distancing, masking, hand washing, etc. For your

student to return to CHS, the following form needs to be completed. Please do so for EACH of

your returning students. COVID 19 Back to School Form

At CHS we are getting “more” normal. Fall athletics have resumed with limited attendance, and

the KHSAA just announced Winter athletics will resume toward the end of October. Attendance

guidelines have not been set for these activities, I’m sure they will be forthcoming.

As we transition to in person learning, it’s important to realize things are not totally normal. CHS

will have one way hallways and stairwells, restroom capacity is very limited, hall pass access

will be limited, lunch will be in student desks in the cafe with assigned seating, masking will be

required, temperature checks will be required at the beginning of the day, all to help us to be

able to minimize the risk of student and staff exposure.

Learning will be both in person, and continue at home. For the student it’s critical to our

learning process that when they arrive in person on their assigned days, they arrive with a fully

charged chrome book. This is going to be essential to some of the processes that take place in

our building. Please help us ensure that happens on every day your student is assigned to the

building. I know the learning processes we are all going through takes a coordinated effort.

The attached document has contact information for grade level principals here at CHS, a link for

teacher emails, and phone numbers for you or your student to contact should they encounter

obstacles in the learning process. We want every child to succeed, and understand the

difficulties many are encountering during this time.

I’ve had many phone calls about fees, and paying school fees. We have not had a school fee

night to date, and if I can, I’d like to avoid having a school fee night, as it brings a multitude of

issues into the building that I’d really like to avoid. You CAN pay your school fees through the

Infinite Campus Parent App. They have been assigned. Remember, this school fee money

goes into our school, and does not go anywhere else. We rely on these funds to purchase

many of the supplies needed to help students learn. If you’d rather, you can send a check in

with your student, or to make other arrangements you can contact Wendi Robinson or Shirley

Millar here at CHS.

We also have limited parking for our students. In August an email was sent out to parents to

request a student parking pass. If you have completed the parking request form, a parking fee

has been added to your student fee account, or you have been put on a waiting list. During the

first two weeks of in person classes, Ms. Dunn will be distributing parking passes. Students will

need to show proof of driver’s license, complete a parking pass permit form, and pay school

fees before a parking pass will be distributed. Seniors and students with classes off campus

have first priority of purchasing a pass. All other students will be put on a waiting list. If you

have any questions, please email Shonda.Dunn@boone.kyschools.us

I hope here in about 10 days, I’m saying “Welcome Back” to the majority of our students. I’ve

missed them, and I’ll be glad to have them back!

Stay Well,

Andy Wyckoff

Principal

Conner High School
