The Quarantine Rules - The Latest State Directed Health Measure

Here are the rules that we play by. Chadron Public Schools has been fortunate to avoid large quarantines already due to practicing the protocols approved by our public health district.

But, we'll say it again...

No matter your opinion on masks, health, science, politics, etc. ...wearing a face mask will prevent larger numbers of quarantines so we can keep students (and staff) in school and participating in activities. Thank you for your support!

Re: Thermometers

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.

Do You Know the Standard Response Protocols?

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 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.
