Christ The King School News Notes

March 9, 2021

Re-enrollment Reminder

By now, families should have received an email regarding re-enrollment for the 2021-22 school year, including a link to their online re-enrollment form. Please complete the online re-enrollment form by March 15th. If you are opting to pay your family re-enrollment fee via check, rather than by draw via your FACTS account on March 30th, please make sure that we receive that check by end-of-day on March 15th; otherwise, the FACTS draw for that fee will be scheduled for March 30th.


To aid us in making new admissions decisions, if you know your children won't be returning to CKS in the fall, please follow the withdrawal link provided in your re-enrollment email to notify us of those intentions.


If you have not received your re-enrollment email and it didn't end up in your spam folder, please contact our IT director, Vince Mongiardo, at it@ckslex.org for assistance.

Important Reminders

  • If you test positive or quarantine, please notify the school's COVID contact. We are required to report these during virtual and in-person instruction.
  • If you are in contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19 for 15 minutes or more within a 24 hour period, you must quarantine. For the most accurate results, it is recommended that you get tested no sooner than 5 days after your known exposure to the positive case.
  • Quarantining is defined as staying at home for 10 days after the known exposure, watching symptoms and checking temperature twice a day. This means not just quarantining from school, but all public locations.
  • When dropping off students' forgotten materials at school, please leave them outside the school's door, and buzz the front desk to arrange retrieval.
  • Masks must be worn on school property at all times. Please make sure to wear your mask when coming to the front door.

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

COVID Testing Locations

Lexington Fayette County Health Department FAQ's about COVID Vaccine

1). Once I receive the 2nd COVID-19 vaccine, do I still need to quarantine if I come in contact with a positive case? Yes


2). If I am positive, can I still get a COVID-19 vaccine? Once you test positive and are finished with your Isolation period (released from Isolation), you can then receive a vaccine.


3). Once I test positive, will I still have to quarantine if I come in contact with a positive case? Not if the subsequent exposure is within 90 days after your initial infection date; however, there could be a stipulation if you become symptomatic after the subsequent exposure.


4). If I am in quarantine from being exposed, can I still get the vaccine? We advise that you stay in quarantine and wait until your quarantine period has ended before getting out to be vaccinated.


5). Do I still have to wear a mask and distance 6 feet even after I receive a COVID-19 vaccine? Yes


6). Is it recommended that I quarantine after traveling to other states or countries after receiving both doses of the vaccine? Yes

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.

  • When a cohort goes into quarantine, including the teacher, the students will use the full online plan that includes synchronous (or live-streamed video) learning.
  • When individual students quarantine, without their cohort/teacher, or chooses to learn from home, he/she will use the hybrid plan that includes asynchronous (pre-recorded video) learning ONLY.
  • When a student is sick with allergies, strep etc. or on a trip he/she will complete missing work as normal, using Google Classroom and Ren-Web to keep up. The student has as many days as he/she misses to make up the work.
