We'll give students two extra days of summer! :)
With the many changes to the procedures of school due to COVID-19 concerns, Chadron Public Schools will spend two extra days with teachers for training and preparations before students arrive. Pending final School Board approval at the next regular meeting, the first day of school for students will be Monday, August 17th. No announcement has been made whether it'll be a full day or a 1:30 dismissal yet.
Here is the concussion testing schedule for high impact sports. All tests are conducted in the high school library computer lab. All freshman and juniors in the indicated fall sports will be tested including any new sophomore or senior participants that have transferred in and have not completed a concussion test from their previous school.
Monday, August 3rd @ 9:00a - 9th & 11th grade Football
Wednesday, August 5th @ 9:00a - 9th & 11th grade Softball
Friday, August 7th @ 9:00a - 9th & 11th Volleyball
We ask that each student attend with at least one parent/guardian for these meetings. All meetings are hosted in the Auditorium. Please limit the number of family attendees to respect and increase social distance spacing. Attendees are encouraged to wear a face covering. Attend only as you feel comfortable, we'll review individual requests for optional meeting opportunities.
During the week of August 3-7th, any freshman or new student to our building can call the school office (432-0707) to schedule an escorted tour of the building.
Feel free to bring your parents, but please keep the group small also, don't forget to bring your face masks!
Aug. 10-12 will be unavailable during the day due to staff trainings throughout the district.
In another effort to reduce class sizes and total students in the building due to COVID concerns, CHS juniors and seniors can take advantage of scheduling one less class per semester this year. This is the same program we offer every year for upperclassman that enroll in a college class, but this year, ANY junior or senior that is on track to graduate can take advantage of a free block.
Below is an email sent to our juniors and seniors from the school counseling office.
CHS Juniors and Seniors,
Date: July 14, 2020
To: Chadron Public School Patrons
From: Ginger Meyer, Superintendent; Chadron Public Schools Subject: School Information
As stated last spring, we held on to hopes for a traditional graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 by making a decision on July 1st whether we could host a traditional ceremony scheduled for July 18th. However, due to continued concerns of the spread of the COVID-19 virus, public health measures greatly limit attendance for a ceremony as well as the need for continued social distancing and screening. For example, public health advises that each graduate could only be allowed a maximum of 8 guests, other family or friends would not be allowed to attend.
I want to remind parents and students that grades will look very different for this semester. Transcripts and report cards will not show a 4th quarter letter grade. However, full credit for the fourth quarter will be awarded based on successful completion of assignments during remote learning.
The third quarter grades were completed, so we have those posted and they will be used for calculations for GPA for the semester. No student's semester GPA will be lowered from what was posted at the end of the third quarter.
Youth Sports Reopening Guidelines 5/11/2020
The below guidelines lay out the planned reopening of certain youth sports. Additional guidelines for other sports will be provided as it is determined participation in those sports meet health and safety measures. Violation of these rules may mean a team is prohibited from practicing or playing games for the entire summer.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the in-person driver’s education class that was scheduled to be held at Chadron High School, May 26-29 has been canceled. I will be notifying the students who are registered about the cancellation. The Safety Center is excited to offer students our online driver’s education program in light of the cancellation. Students can register and take the classroom portion without a DMV-issued permit but will need to have a permit before they can sign-up for on-street driving appointments.

National History Day
National History Day is an educational program devoted to the learning of history. Last fall, students chose a topic related to the annual theme (“Breaking Barriers in History”). and conducted extensive research using both primary and secondary sources. After analyzing and drawing conclusions about their topics’ significance in history, they presented their work in an original project. April 17th - 26thth, the state competition was held virtually.
Those who competed at the State History Day competition:
