Our schools continue to take collective actions, including maximizing ventilation, providing access to personal protective equipment as well as testing and vaccination opportunities. We will continue to work closely with our partners at Public Health and to provide our school leaders access to the most current guidance and information to guide decision-making. Additional information on State guidance can be found here.
As we move toward the end of another challenging school year we appreciate everyone’s patience and resilience.
STAFF SPOTLIGHT: Cheyne Gerbatz
Ms. Cheyne loves the CES kids! She enjoys watching them learn, especially those light bulb moments when a new idea or concept clicks. Ms. Cheyne also loves the resiliency that the Chester kids have shown over the last few years as they have been faced with different challenging situations. She loves their flexibility, determination, and GRIT that they have for getting through tough things.
In her free time, Ms. Cheyne loves being with her family, especially her children and doing things outside. She has a special place in her heart for summers in the Lake Almanor Basin. She also loves the book The Giving Tree, chocolate, coffee, sloths, and Fridays!
Volunteers on Campus
Volunteers on campus
CES values our volunteers who help us so much. This year, in addition to the paperwork that volunteers complete we will be requiring
proof of vaccination
Or a weekly Covid test
and be fingerprinted (this can be done at the District Office in Quincy)
You are considered a volunteer if you come in consistently to assist at school in your child’s class. Field Trip drivers or parents that help for one event are not considered volunteers in this circumstance.
Testing will occur on campus once a week starting in early October but one can get a test result from anywhere convenient. The “quick test” AKA antigen will be the test provided at the school. At this time, over the counter tests will not be accepted.
