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!

Thermometer Distribution Program

September 9, 2020
To: Students, Parents, & Guardians
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.

As you are aware and have felt yourself we face many new challenges this year. It is our aim to partner with you to make sure that our students are receiving a high quality education. We are lucky to be part of one of the best school districts anywhere. The Covid Pandemic has changed our normal operating procedures. Thank you for honoring our plans and procedures. In order to manage these challenges we will continue to evaluate our procedures to make sure our students are safe. We know it will not be perfect, but our goal is to keep in-person instruction happening.

Chadron Public Schools was fortunate to be on the receiving end of a grant that used Keno money to provide our students with thermometers for free. We are appreciative of this gift given to our school. Please use the thermometers to self-screen each morning.

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.

Here are brief examples when each would be used in a school or activity setting:

"HOLD" - Keep students in classroom. Ex. A student has a seizure and medical staff need to enter the building without interruptions or distractions in the halls.

"SECURE" - No one enters or leaves the building because of a threat outside the building. Ex. Police are looking for a suspected criminal in the area near the school.

"LOCKDOWN" - Avoid, Deny, Defend. Ex. A threat is inside the building.

"EVACUATE" - Exit the building quickly and safely. Ex. A fire drill or actual fire in the building.

"SHELTER" - Take shelter in a safe area. Ex. Tornado drill or actual tornado warning in announced.
