Chartwell School: The Bulldog Bark
Your Weekly Information Update
August 5, 2021
Chartwell’s administrative team continues to monitor daily and weekly updates from the California Department of Education, the Monterey County Department of Education, and the California Department of Health regarding COVID in our county and the ongoing spread of the Delta variant.
At this time, masks will be required for all faculty, students, and parents when on campus.
Additionally, we are exploring options for on-campus testing prior to the beginning of school.
The situation is rapidly changing and we are preparing for various scenarios. Our highest priority is the health and safety of our students and faculty and we thank you for your support as we continue to navigate the pandemic together. More information will be provided next week.
