Capitol High School will Reopen for In-Person Learning on Oct. 19
Dear Capitol High School Families,
We want to thank you for your patience and flexibility as we move these unprecedented times. While we have successfully navigated our transition to a 100 percent virtual learning environment, we could not have done it without your understanding and support. Thank you.
As many of you may be aware the State of Louisiana has officially moved into Phase III of its reopening plan. Phase III guidance indicates group sizes may increase to up to 50 people and school buses are allowed to operate at a capacity of up to 75 percent.
Capitol High School students will return to in-person learning five days per week starting on Monday, October 19. Students who wish to remain in the virtual learning environment will still have an option to do so.
The safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance. To that end, we will operate our schools with the most effective health and safety protocols upon our opening. The protocols outlined in our original School Reopening Plan will remain and in many aspects be enhanced. These include but are not limited to the following:
- Practicing social distancing, to the greatest extent possible, in every classroom
- Hand sanitizing stations in every classroom
- Requiring masks for all students and adults at all times
- Temperature checks prior to building entry
- Increased custodial staff and increased cleaning and sanitation efforts
Please remember to complete the CHS Return to In-Person Survey by no later than Sunday, September 20. All students opting into virtual learning will remain virtual for the remainder of the semester. If we do not receive a survey response your student, they will automatically be assigned to in-person instruction.
On Thursday, October 8, we will host two virtual meetings for parents of students who have opted to return to in-person learning. These meetings will be held at 12 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. On Tuesday, October 13, we will host two virtual meetings for parents of students who have opted to remain virtual. These meetings will also be held at 12 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Whether in-person or virtual, we will continue serving our students with the same level of pride, excellence, and innovation that is the foundation of Capitol High School.
Thank you for your support.
Capitol High School
