CKS Travel Policy

Many have come to us concerned about families traveling. We all have to be protective of our cohorts.


In order for us to preserve face-to-face instruction of our students at school, we have to be extra careful with the choices we each make. We, of course, want our children to have all the typical experiences; however, we have to remember that making sacrifices for the short term will help prevent the spread of the virus, and reduce long-term negative effects on the school’s reopening and the health and safety of our children, faculty, and staff.


If you travel to or through any current hotspots, students have to quarantine for two weeks. The best place to go to check hotspots, which are states with 15% positive testing rates, is https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/.


Keep in mind that there are considerable swings and changes in all states and they can change even while you are traveling.

Daily Prescreening

Parents will need to fill out this pre-screening form daily with respect to their children who attend Christ the King School. You may submit this either the evening before your child(ren) will attend class on campus, or in the morning before bringing your child(ren) to school; HOWEVER, if you submit this form the evening before and circumstances change between then and the morning, you should resubmit and take action accordingly. A SYMPTOMATIC CHILD, OR ONE WITH A TEMPERATURE OF 100.4° OR ABOVE, SHOULD NOT BE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL.

COVID Contact

As questions arise about the policies and procedures that we have put in place due to COVID-19, we wish for our parents to have a point of contact for their questions. For the upcoming year, our nurse, Shayna Elmore, will be available full-time during the school day. She will be our school’s COVID Contact. Please direct your COVID-related questions via email to clinic@ckslex.org or call (859) 266-5641.


If you have any questions about whether your child can be in attendance, please reach out to Nurse Elmore, our COVID contact. It is of utmost importance that we maintain the health and safety of our school community.


If your child is in isolation or quarantine, please contact Nurse Elmore, so that we can ensure that students can continue learning via the hybrid plan if they are well enough to do so. Her contact information is clinic@ckslex.org

Bike Riders

If your child rides their bike to school, please note that they will use the Cochran Rd. crosswalk for morning arrival and afternoon dismissal. Students should walk their bike through the crosswalk, on the sidewalk and to the bike rack that is located by the gym entrance. Bike riders will NOT be dismissed until the afternoon carline has completely cleared. If you wish for your child to be a bike rider, please fill out a Bike Rider Permission Slip.

Walker Permission Slip

Students MUST have a signed permission slip to be allowed to walk home following afternoon dismissal. Here is the Walker Pemission Slip.

Reopening Plan

Please see the CKS Reopening Operations Plan for all important information.

Spread the Word! Middle School Virtual Coffee for Perspective Parents

Catholic Action Center Needs Our Help!

In September, the 8th grade had the opportunity to Zoom chat with Ginny Ramsay, director of Catholic Action. Ginny is looking forward to opening the new Covid wing at Catholic Action. They will have 80 beds for individuals and are in need of sheets for the beds.


We are in need of 80 pieces of Twin Fitted sheets by Friday, October 16.


Students can bring these in and leave with their homeroom teacher. Middle School students will earn house points for donating sheets.
