BREAKING NEWS
From the Principal's Desk
Greetings, Chesapeake Science Point Family,

I would like to thank all of the staff for the great job they did during last week's lockdown! Parents, the investigation is ongoing. The detective who is in charge of the case has provided me with an updated status of the case. The authorities have contacted the courts for subpoenas to assist them with gathering additional information. I will continue to provide you all with updates as I get them.

Career Day is fast approaching! If you are interested in being a speaker or presenter at our career day on the morning of Friday, April 20th, please contact me at djefferson@mycsp.org. When contacting me, please let me know your career field or area of expertise. All are welcome! We are hoping to have the best career day ever!

Parents, please have a conversation with your student in regards to the proper uniform attire here at CSP. All pants should be a khaki material. Jeans, stretch pants, jogging pants, and warm-up pants are not the proper uniform and should not be worn to school. Only during their physical education classes are warm-ups, jogging pants, and or sweat pants allowed. In addition, hoodies, jackets, and or sweaters are not allowed either. If the sweater, fleece jacket, or sweatshirt has the CSP logo, your student may wear it. The only occasion where a hoodie can be worn is on dress down days. Thank you in advance for cooperation! I hope that you all have a pleasant and enjoyable weekend! Thank you for all that you do!

Dwight L. Jefferson,
Principal
