Welcome to CHA
Welcome, New Parents!
We’re glad you’re here! You are part of our CHA family, and we look forward to coming alongside you and your children during this time of transition.
As you and your family navigate the start of the school year, be sure to visit our Parent Central page on this website. It will be your main source for quick links to all the forms and information you’ll need to get “up and running” fast.
CHA Communications 101
We don’t want you to miss a thing! Take some time to become familiar with the our key communication channels below that help us keep you, our parents, informed and up to date.
On the CHA website, Parent Central is your “go-to” place for school forms and information. (Includes: Forms for health services, choir/band, athletics, extended care and more. Also included is information regarding volunteering, tuition and fees, dress code, hot lunch, handbooks, etc.) Some minor procedural adjustments are made from year to year and most forms and other documentation are updated over the summer. Please “stay tuned” as we aim to have all 2019-2020 forms ready for your use on Parent Central by the end of July 2019.
This all-school newsletter is emailed to parents approximately two times per month during the school year (August-May). During the summer months, two issues of Parents’ Page (July & August) are sent to parents with information and updates for the coming new school year. (Includes: Current information relevant to all school families, reminders of deadlines, upcoming events, direct links and shortcuts to important information, forms and more.)
Family Specific Information
Veracross is our secure school database. Each family (and each student in grades 5-12) has a customized account and login that will allow access to a personal portal. (Portals include: School calendars, school directory, class lists, report cards, and student [5-12] academic schedule and classroom assignments.) Parent login information will be provided to new families before your child’s first day of school. Students in grades 5-12 will receive their portal login information in class after school begins. Click to access Veracross login page.
Keep in Touch with your Tuition Account. Introducing the FACTS Management System for Student Billing.
Our desire is for FACTS to work efficiently and seamlessly with Veracross in providing families with quick and accurate invoices and reports for tuition. Families will be receiving information in August on how to create a FACTS account. Those who already have a CHA FACTS account may use their existing logins.
Classroom Newsletters (PreK-6th only)
Each Friday, PreK-6th teachers email their classroom newsletter to parents of their students. (Includes: Photos and an overview of the week’s classroom studies and activities, information on upcoming assignments, projects, field trips and more.)
