The CCPS Communications team has developed a comprehensive communications plan to offer parents, students and staff timely and continuous information throughout the school year. As we open the 2021-2022 school year, the Superintendent will continue to send regular email, phone and text message updates through School Messenger. Additionally, CCPS will post the Reopening Plan on its website. The Superintendent and Board of Education of Charles County will continue to share information videos, provide updates, hold Town Halls, conduct surveys, meet with stakeholders and provide information through social media, which includes Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Notification of COVID-19 Cases
CCPS has developed processes for parents/guardians to notify the school as soon as they are made aware that they/their child has tested positive for COVID-19 or that they/their child has been exposed to a person who is confirmed to have COVID-19. CCPS has developed a plan and communications for how parents are to notify the school of a positive test result or exposure to ensure confidentiality. The Communications Office has developed a process for notification of contacts of persons who are confirmed to have COVID-19.
