Greetings Chadron Public Schools Parents, Patrons, and Students:
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Chadron Public Schools. Set apart for excellence, our students enjoy dynamic relationships and rigorous curriculum equipping them for the future and challenging them to be lifelong leaders. We believe that every student can learn and will grow when expectations are high and clear.
Chadron Public Schools has been proud to work with the iloveuguys Foundation to provide clear, plain, standard responses to emergency events. The Standard Response Protocol (SRP) has undergone a couple of changes in the past year. One is the change from the term "Lockout" to "Secure". 'Lockout' was too similar in sound as 'Lockdown' so the term was switched to maintain a clear understanding of the difference. The other change is the addition of "Hold", which simply asks students and staff to remain in their rooms during class.

From CPS Superintendent, Ginger Meyer: Today was an eventful day to say the least. Our staff and students have been affected by CoVid and quarantine. For full transparency we now have three high school and one middle school staff member who have tested positive. We have been commended over and over again that our school is doing great with our plan and procedures. They have not quarantined anyone for spread in our buildings.
From Chadron Public Schools Superintendent, Ginger Meyer: We were made aware late yesterday afternoon that we have two more positive cases that have ties to our school community. CPS continues to work with PPHD for contact investigations.
As we know CoVid is in our community. We will be developing a communication for families called the Communications Dashboard. It will be located in CoVid button on the school website It will identify cases active and recovered that have implications for CPS. This Dashboard will serve as our press release going forward.

We'll give two extra days 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 School Board approval at the next regular meeting, the first day of school for students will be moved to August 17th. No announcement has been made whether it'll be a full-day or 1:30 dismissal.
During the week of August 3rd-7th, 5th grade students and new students can schedule time to tour the middle school building. To set up a tour, please contact the CMS office at 432-0708. Parents are welcomed to join the tour, but no more than 3 family members (including the student) can be in a group. Also, masks will be required during tours without exception.
Aug. 10-12 will be unavailable during the day due to staff trainings throughout the district.
