Social distancing protocols

Social Distancing

The CDC recommends social distancing as an effective means of reducing exposure and slowing the transmission of contagious diseases. Practicing social distancing helps protect everyone. 

All individuals on campus will be required to observe the following social distancing protocols wherever possible:

  • Maintain at least a 6-foot distance between yourself and others.
     
  • Avoid shaking hands and close physical contact with others.
     
  • Do not share water bottles, food, towels, utensils, etc.

The school has conducted a thorough review of its spaces, including all classrooms and communal spaces, to confirm social distancing can be maintained in accommodating students.  We are fortunate to be a small school, with large spaces.  In the majority of cases, six-foot separations are possible.  There are a small number of learning spaces where distancing may be limited to between four and six feet.  Additional protocols will be implemented in these spaces, and students will be required to adhere to the direction of their teachers.

As guidance on social distancing continues to evolve, we will monitor and amend these protocols as appropriate.  All members of the CCDS community are asked to help with these social distancing efforts.
