Dear Parents /Guardians:

We know it is alarming to hear all the news reports about the Novel Coronavirus. There is so much information being given out and frankly, it can be overwhelming, especially since Michigan has confirmed cases of the virus in the state and closed K-12 schools beginning Monday, March 16, 2020.

The administrative and medical staff of the Chandler Park Academy School District share your concerns, and we are developing programs to help us all respond appropriately and help support our CPA families during this time. We also share in Governor Whitmer’s sentiment that, “this is a necessary step to protect our kids, our families, and our overall public health.”

We are working closely with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), Wayne County Health Department and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who will be directing us regarding all procedures. So for now, effective immediately, all CPA District events are canceled and school is closed as of Friday, March 13, 2020.

The health and safety of our students and staff are paramount, and we want to assure you that we are working to determine our options moving forward with that in mind. Please be assured that we will update families, with new information as it becomes available.

Please remain connected to the Chandler Park Academy School District through our District website, email list and social media where we will provide the latest updates. We will also alert you through robo-calls and email with any changes in procedures or updates to events that affect our school.

Also, please read the handout below from the MDHHS regarding the 2019 Novel Coronavirus. The handout will give current information and ways that you can protect yourself and family from the virus.

>> MDHHS 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Fact Sheet

Working together; adhering to the procedures given by the CDC and practicing good hygiene will help us to protect ourselves and others during this medical emergency.

Educationally yours,
