Community Pledge

It takes the strength and growth mindset of our community to accomplish our mission and provide services for students. We pledge social responsibility to each other to stand together in the midst of ongoing social and emotional challenges. We know that there are safety measures that must be in place in order to keep our community physically and psychologically safe. We all play a vital role in health and safety. We will all adhere to the heightened standards to protect our School. Our top priority is safety to students, teachers, and families of our broader community.

I Dedicate to Our Community:

  • To adhere to safety precautions and to extend grace and patience with others regardless of their views
    This is an unprecedented time of stress and uncertainty. I commit to actively looking for opportunities to assist rather than exclude and ridicule the members of this community. I will respect the wishes of those who choose to wear or not wear a mask.

  • To seek to understand
    I understand that CSS has a diverse student/family body and that we must support each other. I will not display unsafe behavior, shun, or ridicule others because they are different or have opinions that oppose mine.

  • To practice daily self-care and assessment with integrity
    I will report my physical health status accurately and honestly to the Campus Health Coordinator and/or my mental health status to the School Counselor to ensure safety for all, myself included.

  • To support faculty/staff and my student to ensure School safety protocols are easily understood and respected
    I will not contradict School safety protocols. I will train my student to keep safety paramount while learning on campus.

  • To remain flexible
    I realize that executive order, an outbreak, and absenteeism can affect on-campus learning and/or COVID-19 protocols set forth by the School. I understand that pandemic acuity is necessary and we may have to make adjustments or pivot as the pandemic continues to evolve.

  • To communicate transparently
    As a family, we stand by the School’s commitment to providing an environment in which it is safe to tell another when unacceptable actions and behaviors occur on the part of any community member. I will share with School leadership any new developments, especially when information is necessary to ensure the safety of the School community.

  • To recognize space restrictions
    I understand that space restrictions will affect the School day and social distancing should continue to be adhered to where possible.

  • To support the School mission
    I recognize that we are preparing students for a dynamic world and that such education will take grit, resilience, courage, empathy, and integrity.
