When school is delayed for 1 hour and 30 minutes (90 minutes) due to inclement weather, buses will pick your student up 90 minutes after your regular pick up time according to the normal Tuesday-Friday bus schedule. IT IS NOT THE NORMAL LATE START MONDAY BUS SCHEDULE!
Specific route times are at the link below, your time would simply be 90 minutes later than what is listed. The actual school bell schedule is the same as any Monday. We are sorry this can all be a bit confusing. If you have any questions, please contact the office at 553-2501.

On April 12, 2014, many area high school students will take the ACT examination, preparing for the college and university application process the upcoming year.
The ACT examination is the primary measuring tool used by Midwestern universities and colleges in determining college entrance, scholarship awards, and course placement or exemption.
To assist sudents in preparing for the ACT exam, a select group of CF High School teachers will facilitate a series of four ACT Preparation Seminars begining on Tuesday, March 25 for local students who plan to take the ACT examination on April 12, 2014. Each teacher is highly qualified to teach subject matter in the following ACT exam areas: English, reading, math, and science. Registration deadline for the seminars is Wednesday, March 12. Signing up for this seminar does not register you for the actual ACT testing. The seminars we are conducting and the actual ACT exam are two separate things. You must register for the actual ACT TEST by going to www.actsudent.org.
During the seminar, students study and prepare for the four parts of the ACT exam: English, Reading, Math, and Science. The seminar takes place over four nights, lasting roughly two hours and fifteen minutes each night and corresponding with each of the core areas. Therefore, students who attend the seminar all four nights will benefit the most from the program because they will receive instruction in all four of the core areas.
The registration fee is $35.00 and covers instruction and materials for all four nights.
Seminars are 6:00 p.m.-8:15 p.m. on the follwing dates:
Tuesday, March 25, 2014
Thursday, March 27, 2014
Monday, March 31, 2014
Thursday, April 3, 2014
Typically students take this test their junior year. Sophomores and seniors are welcome to participate in these seminars by registering online as well.
If you have questions prior to the registration deadline, contact Troy Slater, the program facilitator, at Troy.Slater@cfschools.org or (319)553-2577 from 7:20 – 7:45 a.m. or from 2:50 – 3:20 p.m.
NOTE: SIGNING UP FOR THIS SEMINAR DOES NOT REGISTER YOU FOR THE ACT TEST. To register for the ACT Test, go to www.actstudent.org.
Students now have their Chromebooks. Charge the Chromebooks at home and bring them to school fully charged. All students are expected to take their Chromebooks to class with them.
Tweet questions and comments about Chromebooks using hashtag #cfhschromebooks.
Parents were sent an email on Friday, Jan. 3 which included an agreement form that you and your student will need to submit either electronically or paper version. This form needs to be submitted before your student can take the Chromebook home. All students are expected to have the Chromebooks with them in class.
In an effort to support all students, we have launched a comprehensive support system. Math, Science, English, and Social Studies teachers are available every period of the day. Please click this CFHS Student Support link which includes a basic chart describing some of the supports and locations. You may contact Dr. Deines (juniors and seniors) or Mr. Becker (sophomores) if you have any questions.
