2022-2023 School Supply Lists

Heights High students will receive information about supply needs from each course teacher during the first week of school. Students should bring their Chromebook, a pen, pencil, notebook and a folder for handouts on the first day of school and a backpack, messenger bag or other satchel to carry their school supplies and personal belongings.
 
*Some elementary PTA groups post supply lists on Yubbler in order to fundraise. Yubbler may not carry some specific supplies and will add substitute products. Please make sure to follow the supply lists posted here regardless of where you purchase them.

Learning Models For 2022-2023

CH-UH City Schools will offer two learning models: 5 full days a week in-person, and a fully remote, self-paced option. The remote option is called Tiger Virtual Academy (TVA). TVA applications for the 2022-2023 school year are due July 31; find details on how to apply here

Chromebook Upgrades & Exchanges

Over the past year, the district has upgraded Chromebooks for students entering grades 5 through 12. The newest model is a Chromebook 3100 (see bottom of computer). If you have not yet exchanged your child’s old device, or if you are new to the district and need technology, it is important for you to take action this summer before the 22-23 school year. Many of our online curricular and testing programs rely on updated technology. 

The IT Department is located inside the Delisle Options Center at 14780 Superior Road (Door #7). Parking is in the back of the building off of Washington Boulevard. The IT Department is open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

For students entering Grades 5 through 12
Check the bottom of the Chromebook, and it should be clearly marked as a Chromebook 3100 model. If it does NOT read Chromebook 3100, then you still need to receive an upgraded model. Simply bring the old Chromebook, adapter, and case to the IT Department to be exchanged. 

For students entering Grades 3 and 4
Third and fourth grade students will receive new Chromebooks through their elementary schools in September.

For students entering Grades Pre-K through 2
Our youngest students use touchscreen Chromebooks that are stored in carts in the classrooms. (The exception is students enrolled in the Tiger Virtual Academy.)

For more information, please contact the IT support line at (216) 397-5910.

Food Services - Free Breakfast & Lunch for All Students

All students in the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District, from pre-K through 12, will receive free breakfast and lunch each day of the 2022-2023 school year.

Every student, regardless of family income level, in every district school building will receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at no charge each day. Students will continue to receive the same high-quality meals provided by AVI Fresh, the district’s food service partner. Families do not need to submit Free and Reduced Lunch applications.  

A la carte items will be available for purchase at the high school and middle school. Students must pay for these items with cash, check or the pre-paid balance on their Infinite Campus account. Students will not be able to “charge” for a la carte items. Correct change must be provided for a la carte purchases; any cash change will instead be credited to the student’s Infinite Campus account for future purchases.

Infinite Campus

All parents/guardians in the CH-UH City School District are able to sign up for our student information system, Infinite Campus.
 
Infinite Campus is an extremely important tool for parents and guardians. It is the official grade book for the District, meaning that all grades are maintained in Infinite Campus rather than paper grade books for grades 3-12. K-2 parents can benefit by signing on as well, because the system also allows you to check your student’s attendance, assignments, and academic progress. It is an excellent way to communicate with your student’s teachers.
 
Families are also encouraged to update their contact information in Infinite Campus in order to receive important school and emergency-related information. Families must "opt-in" to receive these messages via phone call or text message.
 
The activation process is quick and easy and, once completed, you’ll be able to follow your child’s progress throughout the year. You can get your activation code when you register your student or from the school office. The CH-UH Data Department also creates Infinite Campus accounts for parents/guardians who request them. If you do not already have an account and would like one, please fill out this Google Form. You will be notified by email when your account is created. 

Parent Annual Update
All parents/guardians are asked to update the information in Infinite Campus that was formerly collected on required forms at the start of school (Emergency Medical form, Media Release, "Blue Card," etc.). Follow these instructions to complete the annual update.

Transportation

Bus information and routes will be mailed to families in mid-August. This information includes your student's AM and PM bus numbers and pickup location. Families can also log on to the Versatrans E-Link Portal to check busing information.

Download the updated Bus Rules and Responsibilities. For more information, visit the Transportation page. Use the District's Bus Eligibility Tool to determine if your child is eligible for busing. When using the tool, it is recommended that you fill out all of the fields in the portal including your complete address with suffix and zip code.
 
Bike racks are available at all schools for students and staff who travel to school by bicycle.
