Safety Information
The Clark County School District suggests the following precautionary
measures for parents and their children. Parents are urged to have
frank discussions with their children about the following:
•
Teach your children, regardless of age, their full name, your full
name, their address, and phone number.
•
Explain the dangers of being abducted and/or molested.
•
Explain that private parts of their body should not be touched by
anyone, and if that happens, to report it immediately.
•
Police officers are to be trusted for help; explain that police can
always be identified by their marked car or motorcycle and their
uniform.
•
Emphasize the importance of staying close to a parent, relative,
or friend when away from home.
•
Explain the importance of noticing and remembering identifying
characteristics of strangers, such as their height, hair, eye
color, voice quality, clothes, and unusual marks. Also stress the
importance of remembering the vehicle description, such as color,
size, and license plate number.
•
Stress the importance of protesting and running away if a stranger
tries to take your child/children somewhere.
•
Never accept candy, money, or gifts from strangers.
•
Never go into a garage, shed, or alley with a stranger.
•
Never get into a car with a stranger. If a stranger asks for directions,
be polite but do not go near the vehicle. If a stranger gets out
of his/her vehicle, run away immediately.
•
Parents should occasionally accompany their child/children to
school and monitor the area they are traveling.
•
Parents should know who their child/children normally walk to
school with and the route they normally take.

Fall Season...
The Fall Season is busy in the Performing Arts
Department. The collaborative performance
of the musical “9 to 5” is currently in rehearsal
in preparation for the November performances.
Students auditioned at the beginning of September and were cast
by Mr. Isbell, Mr. Beuning and Mr. English.
The Marching Band has been rehearsing since the first week of
August for their competitive season. The show for this year is a
patriotic theme titled, “Out of Many, One” written by Christopher
Kennedy and Justin Cloud. This year the band will compete at two
out of town events (Peoria, Arizona and St. George, Utah) and at four
local competitions. There are 130 students in the Marching Band
who dedicate many hours a week in rehearsals.
The Choir department will hold its Fall Concert on Oct 14 at 6pm in
Zuiker Theater. Free admission.
We are pleased to welcome Ms. DeClercq as
our orchestra teacher at Chaparral. She earned
music degrees at the University of Kentucky and
UNLV, and is in her fourth year of teaching strings.
The Art Department is heating things up and is off to a creative start
of the school year. Chaparral Ceramics Club will meet after school on
Thursdays in room 131 from 1:30-3:00. Students may come and work
on assignments from class or join in creating new projects weekly!
