To help everyone get off to a successful start at Cherry Hills Christian School, we provide this checklist to complete. We update this list annually. Please review deadlines carefully, and direct questions to the CHC contact listed.
Be familiar with CHC management tools
- Review these instructions to set up and manage a Magnus account. CHC uses Magnus to manage student health and safety information and the CHC Parent-Student Handbook. Please contact CHC School Nurse Johanna Simpson with questions.
- Review these instructions to set up and manage a Canvas account. CHC uses Canvas to manage students’ academic progress.
- Review these instructions to set up and manage a FACTS account. CHC uses FACTS to manage tuition and fees, complete admissions and enrollment processes and make other school-related purchases.
- Review this information about student iPads and CHC requirements regarding their use.
- Watch this video overview of the software tools CHC parents use to manage their relationship with our school.
Pick up and drop off essential items
All CHC parents should have the following:
- Carpool number(s) for student pickup and a map for navigating our parking lot for student drop-off and pick-up. For a 2021-22 number assignment, please contact Director of School Operations Patty Carvill. Information about 2022-23 number assignments and student pick-up and drop-off will be released in 2022.
- A school-issued parent badge. Returning parents are given a small sticker to update their badge for the current academic year. New parents receive their badge during our annual New Parent Orientation. For a 2021-22 parent badge, please contact CHC’s Front Desk at (303) 791-5500 to schedule an appointment. Information about 2022-23 badges will be provided in 2022.
If applicable, drop off student medications. CHC collects all student medications before the first day of class. Please check all medications’ expiration dates, and provide only those that are current. Ensure all Epi Pens and prescription medications have a pharmacy-generated label and all over-the-counter medications are clearly labeled with the student’s name. Provide two Epi Pens — one for the classroom, the other for the student clinic. Please contact CHC School Nurse Johanna Simpson with questions. Information about student medication drop-off during the 2021-22 academic year will be released soon.
Review and submit all required student health and safety forms
We ask parents to complete and submit this information by Aug. 1 each year:
- CHC Parent/Student Handbook. Please log into your Magnus account, and review and submit this form, confirming your family is in agreement.
- Student Health Verification Form. Please log into your Magnus account to complete this form, which is required before any student is permitted to attend class.
- Student Transportation Form. If applicable, please log into your Magnus account, and complete this form to permit your Upper School student to walk/bike to and from campus.
Cover the CHC fashion bases
Have school supplies ready to go
- Visit here for a list of supplies for your Preschool student.
- Visit here to order school supplies online for your Kindergarten-Grade 8 student.
- Parents of Kindergarten-Grade 8 students should submit the CHC iPad Acceptable Use Contract, acknowledging CHC’s iPad usage expectations and requirements. Also review the Digital Citizenship Pledge your student will take at the start of the school year and the list of iPad-related tools with which he or she will be entrusted.
- For a school-approved iPad case and keyboards, please purchase one of the following: Brydge 9.7 or Zagg.
Plan for lunchtime and snacks
Parents are expected to provide healthy lunches and snacks for their children each day. Our unique school lunch program through Wholesome Foods allows parents to set up an account and order food up to two months in advance from a variety of restaurant partners. For security purposes, we cannot allow online dining services, such as Door Dash and Uber Eats, to deliver to students during school hours.
