Christ The King School News Notes

April 6, 2021

Message from the Principal

Dear Families,

I hope you had an enjoyable and restful spring break! We continue to look forward with excitement and anticipation to the end of a truly exceptional school year.

We are making plans for our typical end-of-the-year events, such as First Holy Communion, May Crowning, and graduation. These will look very much like they always have, but with some social distancing and mask wearing. We look forward to celebrating all of these special events with our families.

We are also making plans for some new activities and fundraising events to support our school. First will be a 4-on-4 tournament for our basketball-loving students. It will take place on Saturday, April 17, at 9:00 a.m. You will find the registration information and link further down in this News Notes issue.

Also, we are bringing back Boosterthon this year. Our students are very excited! There will be some changes in Boosterthon, with the final event being a dance-off instead of the Fun Run/Color Run. This will take place on May 12th, and will be a great celebration of our year.

Finally, we postponed and renamed Big Blue Fling to CKS Spring Fling, to be held Friday, May 7th. This will be an outdoor event for our parents. It will definitely look different, but we are excited to bring school parents together to celebrate and support Christ the King School. More information is to come; please reach out if you want to help out in any way.

Thank you again for all you do to help provide our students with such an exceptional place to grow and learn. Have a great week!


Paula Smith, Ed.S.

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, Kylee Greer, 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 or call (859) 266-5641.

If you have any questions about whether your child can be in attendance, please reach out to Nurse Greer, 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 Greer, 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

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.

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