School Climate Survey



Dear Parent,

We would like to invite you to take part in our school climate survey. The school climate survey provides an opportunity for parents to respond to questions about their child’s school concerning school connectedness, leadership, rules, safety, teaching and learning.  Schools will use this feedback to help improve school climate. This survey should only take about 5 minutes to complete and will be open from December 5th-December 15th. Please click here to complete the survey 


 We appreciate your time and honest feedback.






On Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 9:00-12:00 teams made up of

students, teachers, parents and community members will be roving the town in a scavenger like fashion.  Students will travel in teams of three or four following assigned routes to collect non-perishable items, canned goods, donations, and gift cards that will be distributed to the needy.  This community project has been an annual Durham and Middlefield event for the last 11 years and has filled both towns’ food pantries each year.  Additional food items are also delivered to the Amazing Grace food pantry in Middletown .  Last year 14,602 food items and over $2,785.00 in cash and gift cards were collected!


Students register in teams with their schools.  Those who prefer to remain at the high school can assist by sorting, counting, & packing.  We also need volunteers to help load the trucks and then unload them at Amazing Grace.  Students must fill out a permission slip from their school to participate as a volunteer.  A sizable number of volunteers are needed to make this day a success.  In keeping with the spirit of the day, items will be counted for a grand total only.  All volunteers will be eligible for raffle prizes and breakfast will be served at 8:30, sponsored by the Durham Women’s Club. Registration will be from 8:30 to 8:45.  All participants and volunteers are welcome.


This cross-age project, co-sponsored by the Local Wellness Coalition, provides an opportunity for students and adults to work together and experience the true spirit of the holiday season.  For further information, please contact Kathy Bottini, Melissa Cook, or Rebecca Sinusas Co-chairs, Strong Guidance Department at 860-349-7255.

Upcoming Events

Dear Parents and Guardians:

I hope that everyone has had a positive transition to the 2017-2018 school year.  I am writing to remind parents about the myriad ways to get involved in your child’s education and to provide you with information about upcoming events at Coginchaug over the next three months.

In high school, finding ways to get involved in your child’s education can be difficult.  At Coginchaug, we have numerous avenues to help parents track academic performance and plan for upcoming school sponsored activities.  PowerSchool is an on-line tool which provides an accurate assessment of your child’s learning.  The PowerSchool program offers parents the opportunity to review their child’s schedule, grades and attendance from any computer that has internet accessibility.  Additionally, we utilize email, our school website, Facebook and Twitter to provide parents daily updates about school.  This information includes morning announcements, school activities, athletic contests, fine and performing arts shows and other exciting events happening at Coginchaug.

Over the next three months, we have a number of activities planned for your child. Please encourage your student to be an active participant in his or her education. These include:

  • ·         October 11th PSATs
  • ·         October 16th-20th  Homecoming Week
  • ·         October 21st Homecoming Dance
  • ·         November 15th-18th Senior Class Trip to Washington DC
  • ·         November 29th-30th Parent Conferences
  • ·         December 2nd Community Round-up
  • ·         Various Musical and Sporting Events

I hope to see you and your children at as many of these upcoming events as possible.  If you have any questions or if I can be of any assistance, then please call the main office at (860) 349-7215.
