|Quarantine = 14 days, Isolation = 10|
I write to remind you of the importance of following the CPS standard operating protocols that were reviewed and approved by the Panhandle Public Health District.
We are so thankful that our students and staff continue to be vigilant about social distancing, wearing face masks, sanitizing work areas and washing hands. The reminder to continue those protocols comes after recent quarantines of large groups of students in other community schools ...and in our own.
We recently lost the opportunity to compete in a varsity football game due to a large number of students quarantined in the opposing school. We have had a single student case that has led to the quarantine of nine other students in one of our own district schools. Currently, we are in conversations with other community schools to again check whether quarantines in those schools will impact fall sports contests with our teams. These are all current examples of the need to be able to defend against large group quarantines by emphasizing the consistent following of approved protocols.
Whether you are a fall sport athlete or a student, to avoid contracting the covid virus or a 14-day quarantine .... please continue to follow the approved protocols!
High School Book Fair dates: Sept. 14, 2020 – Sept. 18, 2020

Re: Free Meals
Greetings Chadron Public Schools Parents, Patrons, and Students:
We are excited to send out some great news: Starting September 14, 2020 through potentially December 2020, All students regardless of economic status will receive free meals at Chadron Public Schools. Money is provided by the CARES Act and could possibly be depleted before the end of December. The USDA has given guidance that schools may extend the Summer Meal Program in response to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Meals will include both breakfast and lunch served through our school food program. Seconds and ala carte items will be charged to your child’s account.
This guidance came September 1, 2020 and our application was filed. Thus allowing us to start this great benefit on September 14, 2020. I encourage you to have your students eat at school. Meals served prior to this were charged at our normal prices. Please continue to fill out free and reduced lunch forms as normal. These numbers allow us to apply for and reap other benefits.
Chadron Public Schools hopes that this news comes as a pleasant surprise and helps each family financially through these unprecedented times.
Ginger L. Meyer, Superintendent
Chadron Public Schools qualified to receive free thermometers for our families and staff. The thermometers were purchased through a Nebraska grant using Keno funds. The free thermometers were distributed to CHS students today (9/11/20). Please read the attached documents before using the thermometer.
