Chadron Public Schools CoVid Dial
We know that the "risk dial" continues to move in the Panhandle (and all parts of the state). We continue to communicate with the Panhandle Public Health District (PPHD) on a weekly basis. We discuss our school protocols, data, and community risks. We will continue to work on and monitor our School Community Status. You will notice that it has no correlation with the Panhandle Risk Dial. Our status does not solely rely on their dial. If you monitor our CoVid dashboard our cases have lessened. Through contact tracing, done by PPHD, it has been determined that cases have originated outside of the school. This gives us confidence that our Standard Operating Procedures (SOP's) are working and are keeping our kids safe. In my opinion, staying in school continues to be the prudent thing to do and one of the safest places for our students. The confirmed cases in our district still remain manageable because we are following our SOP's.
Wearing masks, social distancing, sanitizing, and hand-washing remain our best defense.
