CHMS: COVID-19 Policies

Dear Families,
Thank you for your patience as we have been working to update our COVID-19 Policies regarding masks and quarantining as it relates to the newly released CDC guidelines.  As you know, guidelines are recommendations and not requirements.  As such we have had the difficult task of making a final decision on what our school’s policy should be.  Please know that we take very seriously our responsibility to protect the health and safety of our staff, students, and families.  Additionally, we want to be careful to not put an undue burden on you.  Please review the updated policies as follows:

Masks: 
We will require masks to be worn by all students 3 years old and older beginning Monday, December 14th.  Please send extra masks for your student’s bag so they will have a spare if needed.

Quarantine:

  1. For any student or staff who tests positive for COVID-19, we require a full 10 day quarantine from school.  Your student may be accepted for attendance on the 11th day from the positive test date if they have been fever free without medicine for 24 hours, without shortness of breath, and without uncontrolled bouts of sneezing and/or coughing.  If symptoms persist after 10 days, please contact the office to discuss.  We will need to re-evaluate and may require additional quarantine time.
  2. For any student or staff who has been exposed to a COVID-19 positive case, we require a full 10 day quarantine.  A COVID test will not be required. If the student/staff is not experiencing any symptoms after 10 days, they will be accepted for re-admittance on the 11th day from the first date of exposure.  

Since this is a fluid situation, these policies are subject to change and be evaluated on a case by case basis.  

Thank you in advance for adherence to these new policies.  

If you have any questions or concerns regarding these policies, please do not hesitate to call.
