Picture re-take day is scheduled for September 30, 8-11 am.  If a student wishes to have her/his photo retaken, the original order must be returned to the photographer that day. Otherwise, a retake cannot be done. Priority will be given to students who were unable to have photos taken at Registration.

During the month of September Corvallis High School will practice the Hold protocol. The Hold protocol exists for situations in which it is appropriate to keep the halls clear. One example is a medical emergency occurring just before a class period change. In that case, we would like to keep the hallways unobstructed for the safety and efficiency of responding paramedics. Hold keeps students in classrooms until the situation has been resolved.  CHS is committed to student and staff safety.

Ultimate Frisbee welcomes players of all skill levels.  Practices are at Willamette Park on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, from 4-6 pm.
