Coronavirus Readiness Update

Updated March 30, 2020


Dear CHS Families,

As COVID-19 (coronavirus) is increasingly at the top of everyone's minds, we want you to know the education, health and safety of our staff and students are our top priorities. 

We would like to assure you that we have plans in place, outlined here. As the situation evolves, we will continue to update our approach and share updates until we are allowed to reopen the school.
