Opening 2020 Information
We will share all of our communications regarding opening schools as well as information we receive from federal, state, and local officials on this page. We will continue to update this page as we receive new information.
As a school system, all of our decisions are focused on doing what is best for our students. As we navigate through this unprecedented situation and make plans for how we will welcome staff and students back in August, it is critical that we find a balance between mitigating the spread of the virus within our school community and the potential harm that school closures have on the mental and physical wellbeing of our students.
When plans are finalized, district-wide communication will be sent to all stakeholder groups. When a decision is reached, we must be ready to adjust quickly and implement alternative plans depending on orders that our state and local governments issue.
CSD COVID-19 Safety, Facilities, and Healthy Schools Manual
This procedure manual, although complete in scope, remains a living document. Opportunities remain open for members of our community to raise concerns, seek clarification, or bring forward new ideas. At the same time, this document will allow us to move forward in our planning with the aim of reducing the struggles of children and youth under pandemic conditions while maximizing the ability of adults to stay safe and keep the young people entrusted to them safe.
This manual serves as a support for our schools and district to effectively mitigate the spread of COVID-19 once students and staff return to our buildings for in-person, face-to-face instruction. The purpose of this manual is to establish clear, usable criteria and procedures for school administrators, school nurses, and all CSD staff to follow regarding mitigation procedures in CSD.
