Stakeholders of Castle High School,
Castle High School (CHS) will be working through our five year accreditation process during the 2020-2021 school year. In order for us to complete this process we must have a battery of surveys distributed and completed by a variety of different stakeholder groups within our school and community at large. We must have a certain percentage of stakeholders complete these surveys in order for us to "count" (validate) the data.
Please take a few moments to honestly answer the survey questions linked below. These will also be posted to the CHS website, blasted via CHS social media platforms, and will be included in next month's newsletter. The School Improvement Team at CHS appreciates your help in making Castle one of the best schools in Indiana!
The WCSC will be in session Monday, January 20 to make up one of the school days missed in November.
Club pictures will take place on Wednesday, January 22nd.
The WCSC has replaced Tip Text the new P3 Campus system, which allows students to have access through an app on their smartphone as well as using a computer and accessing the CHS website. It is our job to provide training for our students on this new reporting system.
On January 15th, we will train all students on how to utilize the new system. Click the link below to access the training.
The Warrick County Health Department will be going into the schools to give immunizations to students in:
Fall - 6th grade and 12th grade
Spring- 5th grade and 11th grade (to prepare them for the next grade level). Also we will do 6th graders and 12th graders that need to finish a series of immunizations)
Please watch the school newsletters for paperwork.
Reminder: Student immunization records are required. Parents should submit student immunization records to the school or contact the school nurse to confirm pending immunization appointments.
DESTRUCTION OF RECORDS
The Warrick County School Corporation, Department of Special Education, announces its intention to destroy graduate records that were developed to provide a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in Warrick County Schools. This notice is in compliance with federal, state and local policies.
Records will be destroyed on May 1, 2019 based on the following criteria:
Students who graduated with a high school diploma in May 2016.
Students who received a certificate of completion in May 2016.
These records will be destroyed as they are no longer needed for educational planning purposes.
A parent who is a legal guardian or student (18 years old or older) may request records prior to destruction by contacting the Special Education Records Office at 812-897-6578. You will be required to produce identification or provide verification data to acquire these records.
Children born after January 1, 2017 are registering for a book to arrive at their home every month until the age of 5. The books are published and distributed by the Dolly Parton Foundation. The books are a FREE gift from our community. The initial funds were raised by a dedicated group of students who want to see the program continue for years to come.

We are searching for interested parties in becoming school bus drivers. We will provide the needed training required to become a driver at no charge to you other than the cost of the license itself, which is $30.00. Starting pay for a sub bus driver is $63.80/day and after 14 consecutive days jumps to standard pay of $72.28/day. This is for a typical morning and afternoon run consisting of 3-4 hours per day.
This is a great opportunity to learn a skill that can create you a supplemental income and still be off when the kids are not in school. All classes will start at 9:00 am at the Transportation Garage located at 3455 S. Yankeetown Rd. It typically takes 4 weeks of training before you test in Vincennes. You will test on the same vehicle you train in, making it less confusing for you. If interested, please call 812-897-0495 and you may also apply online.
