Letters to the Editor

The newspaper staff welcomes letters from students, faculty, and community members as they give a constructive way for more people to express their opinions, criticisms, and reactions to school issues. The writer must sign the letter, and editors will make either personal or email contact before publishing to confirm that the name given is valid. If a letter has more than two people represented in the writing, there will be a main author credited with a byline for the supporters, but all must sign the letter before publishing with verifications. The letters must be 250 words or less, and can be edited for grammar and content if necessary by the staff as long as the changes do not affect the meaning of the letter. Each writer will be contacted to make sure of this before publication. Due to limitations of space, the staff cannot guarantee that all letters will be published, but the staff will do its best to cover all topics fully. The letters to the editors can be placed in Mrs. Theaker’s mailbox, Room 611, or they can be sent to [email protected].

Obituary and Reporting Death Policy

The Chant staff members are so sorry to hear of this great loss from one of their own. If the family or persons directly involved with the current or former student would like to write their own 300-word obituary, they are more than welcome to submit a 300-word or less obituary and include a portrait or profile picture to accompany the piece. The Chant reserves rights to make editorial decisions to cut, amend, or change for grammatical or clarity reasons. If they would like for us to write the obituary, please have them contact us here to arrange a phone or in-person interview in order to gain the information necessary to write a piece on this former North Cobb Warrior.

In addition, all stories/packages dealing with any form of death will contain information about death/grief counseling and/or resources.
