Recent COVID Surge Triggers Health Mitigation Plan at Charles City High School

The recent COVID surge is impacting Charles City High School and has triggered implementation of the districts’ Health Mitigation Plan.

A post on the district website says, “This week, Charles City High School reached a 7% absence rate for three consecutive days. To help keep schools open and protect the health of our school community, we are initiating the health mitigation plan approved in September 2021. This is a temporary period during which face coverings will be required at Charles City High School. As per our commitment to families, we will use face coverings as a targeted tool only where and when it is necessary.”

  • Face coverings are recommended for staff and students at Charles City High School on Friday, January 14, 2022. Face coverings will be required from Tuesday, January 18 through Sunday, January 23. 
    • There is no school on Monday, January 17, due to the federal Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday.
