As the end of the school year rapidly approaches I would like to extend my gratitude to our CHS community for your resilience, determination, and cooperation during this difficult school year. Without the cooperation of our CHS families we would have not experienced the success we have had this year in keeping our school healthy! We ask that you help us continue our efforts by keeping children home if they’re sick, wearing a mask, staying 6ft from others, and performing proper hand hygiene.
The Virginia Health Department recently made a change in the grade requirement for the high school Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine (MenACWY) vaccination. All rising 12th graders must receive the Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine. The first dose shall be administered prior to entry to 7th grade. The second dose shall be administered prior to the entry of 12th grade. Rising 8th/9th/10th and 11th graders will be grandfathered and will pick up with the 12th-grade dose. This change was made to better align with the current recommendations from the Center for Disease Control. When completed, please email documentation to the school nurse. This immunization is MANDATORY for entering 12th grade.

New for the 2020-2021 school year! We are blessed to have a new health clinic and a full-time registered nurse on duty during school hours. Mrs. Dellinger is available for the support of the well-being of student’s health, the assessments and care for chronic and acute illness, and first aid for school-related injuries. Together, you, your child, and the school nurse can build a relationship to benefit your child.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child for the nurse, please feel free to email or call.
School phone: 757-615-0246
Please be sure to read the COVID-19 Attendance Guide for Parents and Families. (It starts with YOU!)
Each family must fill out medical information pertaining to their child through Magnus Health.
If you have not done so already, please access the Magnus Health Student Medical Record for your child/children by accessing the MEDICAL link under the STUDENT tab in Parents web. This will automatically log you in to the “Magnus Health Portal.”
If your child needs to take medication throughout the school day, parents must complete the Request for Medication Administration form and turn it into the nurse.
This is required for all Over-the-Counter and Prescription medications.
If your child self carries medication such as an Epi-pen or Inhaler please make sure the self carry form is filled out and the nurse and student have a copy.
If your child has Asthma, Allergies, Seizures, or Diabetes please make sure an Action Plan is filled out and the nurse and student have a copy.
According to the VDH to ensure safety with a household contact quarantine, you must have complete separation from the person in the house with COVID-19 ( this means no contact, no time together in the same room, no sharing of any spaces, such as a bathroom, kitchen, or bedroom).
