Principal's Message

Mr. Mitchell
On Thursday, the 20th of May, our senior students had the opportunity to assemble on our stadium field, in two separate groups, to celebrate their last four years of education.  As we all know, the last year and a half was one for the record books as we battled a statewide pandemic shut down, the perils of Distance Learning, and finished the year off in the Hybrid Model.  I am so proud of Colony High School and the efforts made to get us through these last 14 months.  Its now time to move forward…
 
As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year, there is much to be thankful for.  The data points associated with COVID-19 continue to move in a favorable direction which means our Current County Risk Level moves closer to the minimal level.  As the numbers drop, restrictions are being adjusted which allow us to pursue a return to a sense of normalcy on our campus in August.  As you may know we are planning to open the Fall semester with a traditional, in-person bell schedule.  We will again be utilizing the benefits of an Academy Schedule to address the needs of our students in the following areas:   Enrichment Activities, Academic Support, Study Hall/Study Design, and Social & Emotional Activities.  It will be great to have students back on campus participating in school activities they have missed out on since March of 2020.
 
Headed into summer there will be two Summer School offerings:  June 8 – June 30 & July 8 – July 30.  These summer school sessions have been designed to address the needs for remediation.  There is information listed on our website which you can access by clicking on the Summer School link.  Further questions regarding summer school may be directed to your student’s counselor or you can call the school and ask for Assistant Principal, Mr. Jeffrey.  Our sports programs will also be gearing up to prepare for the upcoming seasons so make sure your student athlete has their physical prior to joining practice.  
 
In an effort to support our students and the community, Colony Food Services will continue to distribute a Grab and Go Meal during the summer on Monday through Friday.  At the back of our Cafeteria, food items will be distributed during the hours of 10:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. so please feel free to stop by to get your food items for the week.
 
I so appreciate the patience and cooperation shown by the stakeholders of Colony High School.  We together have weathered a difficult season and continue to move in the right direction.  As your Principal, I promise to put forth a great effort this summer to ensure you return to a school prepared and ready to deliver quality education where in-person instruction is both engaging and rigorous.  Our vision remains-All students will graduate Ready for College and Career.
 
Have a great summer,
 
Mr. Mitchell, Principal
Colony High School
