Response to COVID-19

This page has been created to update the CSS community and provide resources regarding COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus.

The Centers for Disease Control has created this list of frequently asked questions and answers about the new coronavirus.

Our leadership team has gathered and prepared resources to ready our school in response to COVID-19. In all matters of COVID-19, we are following the recommendations of El Paso County Public and the CDC to best ensure the health and safety of our entire community.
