Dear Parent(s), Guardian(s), and Student(s):
The 2019-2020 school year is quickly approaching. We hope that you had a wonderful and enjoyable summer.
As Cranford High School moves into the 2019-2020 school year, we have reached even greater heights. Here are some of the highlights:
We have never been more determined to provide all students of all levels with an amazing educational experience. This summer, the entire CHS staff has been preparing for another spectacular school year. As the days of summer come to an end, it is a perfect time to reflect on how far we have come and build upon an even greater vision for the high school.
A special note to our students:
Reflect on some of the changes you have experienced in the last year. Looking back, you most likely have experienced growth and changes physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Growth and change can be challenging with new obstacles to tackle and new responsibilities to assume. Understanding those challenges, we, at Cranford High School, are here to care, encourage and support you through this time. Consider your journey today, and plan for a future that will be a positive, exhilarating, and exciting adventure of learning and exploration. Set goals and achieve them, and always know that we care for you and are here for you.
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle

All students are assigned a locker with a combination lock to secure their school supplies. Due to security reasons, only school issued locks may be used on lockers and this lock should be kept throughout high school and returned upon graduation. Students are expected to keep the lockers neat and clean. Students will be responsible for damages and may be assessed the cost of repair. Any damages to lockers should be reported immediately. Loss of a lock will result in a five dollar replacement fee.
Cranford High School has security cameras inside the building and around the perimeter of our school to ensure the safety of all staff, students, and visitors and to safeguard our facility from vandalism and theft. Cameras will be used in locations as deemed appropriate by the administration. Video recordings will be reviewed if there is evidence that a violation of board policies, administrative regulations, building rules, or laws has occurred.
