Parents and Students:
It is with great pride and excitement that I, the new principal of Chester High School, welcome you to an exciting new year. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with so many outstanding students with a vast array of potential.
During the past few months, I have had many interactions with parents, teachers and students. From these conversations, it is my desire to create a learning community that will provide the best possible academic experience for our students. In my quest to create this community, I will have to make difficult decisions that will affect our school and, specifically, our student body.
I have noticed a major safety concern for our school. The concern is students who leave school campus during their respective lunch periods. There have been several complaints and concerns about the safety of our students as they leave/return to school. Therefore, I am left with making a decision to NOT allow students to leave school campus during lunch. Parents, I ask for your support in this matter to insure the safety of our children. If you have questions, I would love to schedule a time at your convenience.
Thanks for your support,
Dr. Duane Graham
