Christ The King School News Notes

April 13, 2021

Message from the Principal

Dear Parents,

It is unbelievable to think that we only have only a little over six weeks remaining in our school year. We are looking forward to the many end-of-the-year events. Please stay up-to-date on the many happenings on our CKS calendar.

Some of you have asked about the CDC and Kentucky Department of Public Health information that no longer recommends taking daily temperatures in schools. However, the Diocese has asked, for now, that we continue many of the procedures that we have in place, including temperature screening and social distancing. Our drop-off and pick-up routines have gone very smoothly and provided a safe environment for our school community, so it makes sense to continue those at this time.

We look forward to working with all stakeholders, including our local health department, the Catholic Schools Office, and our partner schools to make plans for the 2021-2022 school year. As we continue planning for next year, we most definitely want to hear your feedback from the survey we sent out last week. If you haven’t completed it, there is still time. The link can be found below and will be open until tomorrow.

Thank you for all your help and support!


Paula Smith, Ed.S.


Christ the King School

Parent Survey Closes Tomorrow

As we begin to plan for the 2021-22 school year, we are seeking your feedback as it relates to COVID-19 strategies. Our priority remains the health and safe of our school community, and as we continue to follow guidance from the CDC, the Kentucky Department of Education, the Fayette County Health Department and other resources to make sound decisions, we look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!

Please complete this survey by April 15, 2021.

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

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, 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

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.
