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.
