Welcome Back Red Devils!


August 11, 2017


Dear Crestwood High School Students and Families,


Greetings! It is my pleasure to welcome you back to what promises to be a fantastic year filled with countless exciting opportunities and experiences! I hope that your summer has been filled with much rest and relaxation and that your return to school is focused upon doing your BEST!


Crestwood High School welcomes three new staff members: band director Rachel Caldwell, intervention specialist Rachel Grabowski and math teacher Andrea Harris. Students, parents and staff members will soon see why I am so excited about what these three high-quality, student-centered teachers will bring to our Crestwood family!


Delayed start days will continue throughout the upcoming school year in order to provide time for professional development for CHS teachers as well as time for data analysis related to student achievement. On delayed start days, school will begin at 8:40 for all CHS students. Transportation will not be provided for students arriving late on these days. Students who must ride the bus will do so on their regularly-scheduled pickup time and will report to the gym upon arrival to participate in monitored activities until school begins. The following is a list of the delayed start dates for the entire year:
