Seniors are planning an outdoor event with food, music, games, and photo-booth. Seniors will also be picking up their yard signs.

DATE: SATURDAY, February 27

TIME: 1 pm-4 pm

*Rain-date: Sunday, February 28, 1pm-4pm

LOCATION: Carnegie garage rooftop

Physical distancing and masking is required.

Outdoor Movie Night

Special Information for Parents of Seniors:

Outdoor Movie Night was a success!  The weather was lovely, students had a great time, and the full moon rose over the downtown skyline right as the movie culminated.

Thanks to Senior Teacher Kristen Davis-Owen and the Senior Committee for all their hard work.

Thanks to sophomore parent Ed Wolff for the tech expertise as well as the free pizza he surprised the students with.

Thanks to the many parent chaperones and Events coordinator parent Jaymie Turner.

Future safe garage rooftop events are hopefully being planned for seniors.

As you may suspect, end-of-year plans are in limbo with Covid-19 still affecting the city population in important ways.

AP Exams:

AP exam dates are normally the first two full weeks of May. However, the College Board may offer a second set of dates during the first two weeks of June. An online remote contingency plan may be available. CVHS will inform parents and students as soon as anything is decided. Of course, whatever is decided could also change.

Senior Final Exams:

Final Exams for seniors are normally held the third week of May. If AP Exam dates change, senior final exam dates may change as a result. Students and parents will be notified.  As for exemptions from Final Exams, students should be informed of those rules by their teachers.

Senior Activities:

There are a series of celebratory activities traditionally held for seniors at CVHS: senior trip, prom, banquet and awards, sunset, etc. Senior activity week is normally the fourth week of May. This year, however, dates for various activities will be affected by date changes for Graduation, AP Exams, and Senior Final Exams. Once these other dates are settled, one solution may be to disperse Senior Activities throughout the months of May and June rather than concentrate them in one week. Activities will be Covid-19-safe and will likely have to be modified from traditional plans. Information will be communicated as early as possible.

Graduation:

Graduation for the CVHS Class of 2021 has been announced by HISD. 

Campuses will receive additional information regarding logistics, planning, site visits, and communications; however, recommended social distancing practices will be observed. Seating will be limited and require ticketed access.  A limited number of tickets will be issued to each graduate prior to the event. Seating for all ceremonies will begin one hour before the assigned ceremony start time.

2020 Mangum Road

Houston, TX 77092

Because of Covid-19, please be aware that this date and location may change or become virtual, and at the last minute. Families will be informed as early as possible.

In sum, there is a lot of uncertainty. Families of seniors will have to be flexible in their planning for the months of May and June.

Senior Dues:

Because the senior trip had to be canceled due to Covid-19, Senior Dues have been reduced. The amount is now $154 and it will be due on Saturday, March 6. Any senior family unable to afford dues is strongly encouraged to speak with Ms. Hernandez at the front desk. Payment is possible by credit card (Visa, MC, Amex).
