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.

More Information 

Infinite Campus

All parents 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.
It is extremely important for your child’s education that you register for the Parent Portal. 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.

Physical Education (P.E.) Waiver Application

School districts have the authority to excuse students from all high school physical education requirements if they participate in district-sponsored interscholastic athletics, marching band, or cheerleading for at least two seasons, or an approved Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) program for two years. With this policy, the board would not require the student to complete any physical education courses as a condition to graduate. However, the student will be required to earn one-half unit of credit, in another course of study to meet graduation requirements.
Procedure for Documenting Physical Education Course Exemptions:
    • Fall – September 6, 2019
    • Winter – December 13, 2019
    • Spring – March 20, 2020
  • 2. At the end of the season, the Athletic Department will verify with the coach/advisor that students who completed Waiver Applications have completed a full season. The school counselor will ensure that the student’s transcript is updated to reflect successful completion of the PE waiver.
