Welcome back Lions!

Dear Parents,

We received word today that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has updated their guidance regarding student COVID exposure in schools. Chaminade-Madonna will adhere to the guidelines – please read them carefully.
 
1) If your student is exposed to a Covid positive student but is asymptomatic (shows no symptoms of illness), you may choose to keep them in school with no period of quarantine

 
-OR-
 
2) You may choose to quarantine them for no more than 7 days after the exposure. There is no testing requirement to send them back to school
 
If your student is Covid positive or symptomatic, they may return to school
 
1) After they receive a negative test and are asymptomatic
 
2) After 10 days since the onset of symptoms or positive test result; the student has had no fever for 24 hours and the other symptoms are improving

Dear CMCP Families,
 
Over the next several days the faculty and staff will be in meetings to gear-up for the return of our students. We have missed them! Not only are we preparing for instruction, but we are also looking forward to resuming our schedule of co-curricular and athletic programs. It will be a terrific fall semester with something for everyone.

No doubt you have been following the back-and-forth conversations regarding masking in schools both locally and across the country. As of this writing, fewer than 30% of young people from 12-20 have been vaccinated in the State of Florida. It appears, unfortunately, that we rank among the top states for rates of infection and hospitalizations. There has been a marked increase of both among the young people of the state. Of course, it is your right to make vaccination decision for your family. It is our responsibility to keep everyone as safe as possible while on campus.
 
This is our plan:
1) All students, regardless of vaccination status, will mask while on campus (except for lunch)
2) All students will mask when engaged in indoor athletic activities
3) Students will be required to wear a mask while on the sidelines during an athletic contest outdoors
4) Fully vaccinated adults may choose whether to wear a mask
5) We will keep last year's campus sanitizing protocols in place
6) If your student is diagnosed with COVID, he/she should quarantine for 7 days and may come back to campus with a negative test within 3 days of return. Please provide the negative test documentation at the time of return. If you choose not to have them tested, please observe a full 10 days of quarantine. Please be aware that positive COVID tests are recorded with the Health Department. You may be contacted by them at some point if anyone in your family registers a positive test. Be sure to contact the nurse in the Wellness Center to report any change in COVID status. She can be reached at wellnesscenter@cmlions.org
7) Because virtual education is not available this year, if your student is out due to quarantine, he/she will be recorded as "absent-excused" which means that their overall attendance record will not be affected. They should keep up with their work via Canvas and communicate with their teacher via email if necessary.
 
As always, we will update you with any changes to procedures as the year progresses. In the meantime, let's try and keep the community healthy and safe!

2021-2022 Parent/Student Handbook

The 2021-2022 Parent/Student Handbook is available for viewing on the website. Students and parents are required to read the handbook and sign the four (4) forms listed in Appendix B at the end of the handbook:

By signing these forms, parents/guardians and students are agreeing to follow the policies contained in the handbook.
