New COVID-19 Exposure Quarantine Protocols
The Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee Office for Catholic Schools has updated the Quarantines and Exposures Protocols
section that is part of the Return to Campus Plan originally published in early August. The new protocols went into effect on 8/27/2021 and are based on guidance from the FL Department of Education and the CDC. Click here to read the updated document
CHS Visitor Protocol
To minimize risk to the health of all, the Diocesan Policy for Visitor Protocol limits all visitors to all of our Diocesan Catholic schools during the COVID-19 Pandemic. All visitors on campus will report to the Front Office and potential exposure to COVID questions will be asked. Visitors may be asked to sign a waiver and the school reserves the right to check temperatures. Visitors to the campus are required to wear masks.
Lunch may not be dropped off for students. Students have the option to bring their lunch from home or purchase it in our Student Life Center. If a parent provides snacks for a club meeting or event, they must be store-purchased and individually store-wrapped. No homemade snacks may be brought in for any event.. Thank you for helping us to maintain these important protocols.
Parents & Students' Responsibilities for Handling Early Dismissals
Students must bring a note from the parent to the Front Office in the morning before 7:45 a.m. if he/she will need to be dismissed early that day for any reason. The school is unable to dismiss students early if they did not bring in this note from the parent prior to school on the day of the needed dismissal. This is true whether the student will return to school that day or not. Please do not call the Front Office during the school day to request that your child be dismissed at that time. Also, please remember our policy that students may not be dismissed within 30 minutes of the dismissal time at the end of any day.
Parents' Responsibility Regarding Student Absence from School
All parents and students must adhere to the following:
- If your child is going to be absent for a short period of time (1-3 days), please call the Front Office (850-436-6400) by 8 a.m. and leave a message on the attendance mailbox (#2 on our phone system menu), letting us know your child will be out that day. You must also send an absence excuse note in with your child when they next return to school.
If your child is going to be absent for a prolonged period of time (more than 3 days) for whatever reason (death in the family requiring travel, a family trip, a serious illness or injury, surgery, etc.), please call Mrs. Pam Acromite (850-380-5889) and report the full details regarding your child's absence (expected length of time, nature of the absence, etc.). You must also send an absence excuse note in with your child when they next return to school. Thank you!
