Task Force & Health Advisers

Task Force & Health Advisers

Our priority as we prepare for the final two quarters of the 2021-22 school year is your son’s physical health, mental well-being and education. To that end, Christopher Columbus High School continues to work with its expert Health & Wellness Advisory Task Force, which includes physicians, health care workers, members of our School Board, community leaders, faculty, and staff. Together we crafted four scenarios which will allow us to navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 environment. Each plan was designed following best academic practices, keeping the health, welfare, and safety of our students, faculty and staff as the highest priority. In total, we invested well over half a million dollars in COVID-19 preventative measures to ensure that, when the time is right to return to campus, your son will be protected to the highest degree possible.
