CPK’s Continue to Learn 22-23 Plan

    1. Traditional learning will be our approach the entire school year, Aug. 30, 2022 – May 24, 2023.
    2. Good hygiene will be encouraged throughout the day.
    3. CPK’s custodial staff will continue to do an amazing job maintaining a very clean environment.
    4. Children that aren’t feeling good or have a low grade temperature or higher need to stay home until they are feeling better and are fever free for 24 hours. We rely on you, as parents, to use your best judgment
    5. The CPK staff will not be mandated or required to be vaccinated for Covid.
