Hello Coral HS Families!
Thank you for your continued patience and resilience with the many changes we experience in our lives due to COVID-19 Pandemic.
This section provides general considerations regarding the reopening of school buildings and facilities to staff, students, and the public. Effective school re-opening will require diligent efforts to communicate with families, guardians, educators, and community members. The top priority is the health and safety of our students and school personnel. CAS-HS will provide clear guidance on steps the school is taking, including protocols for self-isolation for individuals who are sick or who have come in contact with someone who is sick.
The 2021-2022 school year will begin with in-person instruction.. CAS-HS will prioritize providing face-to-face instruction as public health conditions allow, instituting physical distancing and other preventative practices to keep students and staff healthy. Please remember that we will not hesitate to make changes to our plans and switch between learning models as additional guidance or requirements are released regarding COVID-19. The health and safety of our students and staff are of paramount importance. We will keep you posted as we receive more information. We always appreciate the support of our CAS-HS families and staff. We especially appreciate your help right now as we work through the many details for providing the best learning possible for our children during this most unusual time.
If you selected the full-time Distance Learning model (only available at beginning of semester; check criteria necessary with Mr. Kurt) please make sure you are following the schedule for attendance as well as educational purposes. If you would like to request a change of learning model for any reason, please contact Murat Kurt (firstname.lastname@example.org). The final date to change your learning model is at 3:30 PM two weeks after each semester begins.
Building Safety & Operations
To ensure the safety of all students and staff, everyone who is on-site is expected to wear a face cover, maintain social distancing, and maintain good hygiene by washing hands and using provided hand sanitizer on a regular basis. Students will be encouraged to perform the district’s self-screening process at home, and a tool can be found in our parent orientation and will soon be on the website, or you can go to cdc.com/self-screening.
During this school year, we are still monitoring attendance. Students are responsible for being “present” during their scheduled classes and satisfying the criteria proposed by the WCSD and Nevada Department of Education. Coral Academy of Science High School believes it is the students’ responsibility to communicate with their teachers regarding absences, and requesting make-up work during school hours.
