Campus Life: Healthy at School
Welcome to the HEALTHY AT SCHOOL resource page. This page presents you with our most up-to-date plans for the 2021-2022 school year. Please understand that plans can change and we will stay current through this so you can always stay up to date on our Healthy at School action plans. Please bookmark this page and revisit it periodically for the most up-to-date information.
The purpose of this page is to share our action plans and also what we need for action items from our families. The health, well-being and safety of our Chance family of students, faculty, staff, and parents remain our highest priority.

Travel Self-Quarantine Policy Update
As of September 16, 2021, we have changed the travel quarantine policy from a requirement to a recommendation. The health and safety of your children and the community is our number one goal. Over the last 18 months, this particular restriction served us well, but now it has been deemed less effective. We are continuously reviewing our health and safety policies and will make changes as needed to maintain a safe/manageable process.
Specifically, this change means that if your family plans to travel in Kentucky, to another state, or internationally, we recommend the following:
- Avoid large gatherings
- Wear a mask
- Maintain physical distancing
- Maintain best safety practices that you would follow if at home
- Participate in weekly onsite testing before and after travel
If you are following these recommendations, then you may choose to return to school after your travels. If you are not following these recommendations, then we would recommend a 10-day quarantine for any unvaccinated family members.
