Health and safety

Check Temperatures Daily

Students must be fever-free for 24 hours, before returning to campus.

Don't forget your mask

Students and staff will respect one another by wearing masks while on campus.

Keep us informed

If health situations or return plans change, inform both Central Nine and your high school.

Please see the PDF above and review the information below for tips on how to be prepared for the first day of classes.

Registration

Central Nine will not host a registration day this year. Students will receive registration information on the first day of classes. It is extremely important that students and parents complete all of the required paperwork during the first week of school to ensure that we have the correct contact information on file.

Attendance

High schools do not notify Central Nine of student absences. It is imperative that parents call both the high school AND Central Nine to submit an absence at 317-888-4401. *Be sure to complete all registration paperwork during the first week of school to ensure that we have the correct contact information on file should your child become ill.

Transportation

Central Nine does not provide transportation services. Please direct any questions regarding transportation to your student’s high school. Students who have permission from their high school to drive to Central Nine will need a parking pass. Parking pass information will be sent home with students during the first week of school.

Where do we go?

Our team will be at the entrances to welcome and direct students to their assigned classrooms. High schools create program assignments, so please contact your high school counselor if you have questions or concerns.

What's my schedule?

Your high school counselor is responsible for creating your class schedule and will be able to inform you of your program. He or she will also be able to tell you if you are enrolled in the morning or afternoon session.

Food

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Central Nine will not provide food or drinks this year. Furthermore, there will be no vending machine or water fountain access. Students who bring their own water bottles may use refilling stations, which will be sanitized frequently. Central Nine does not serve breakfast or lunch, as these options are available at the high schools.

Supplies

Students should bring a notebook and pen or pencil to the first day of class. Teachers will provide information regarding class uniform/supply requirements during the first week of school. A mask will also be required.

If Students Show Signs of Illness on Campus...

Any student exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 will be quarantined in the Health Science Lab. The Health Science Lab will function as a quarantine space indefinitely.

As an additional measure of safety, the Student Services Conference Room will temporarily function as a sickbay.  Any student who is exhibiting non-COVID-19 symptoms of illness, such as cold and flu, will be held in the sickbay until a parent or guardian can retrieve the student.

COVID-19 Point of Contact

These individuals will communicate with parents, our partner schools, health department, etc.

What is Central Nine doing to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus?

Central Nine is taking the following precautions to help stop the spread. Staff and student cooperation are essential. Remember, we are #INthistogether. 

  • By August 6th, staff will be trained on Central Nine’s expectations for cleaning and social distancing in classrooms and labs. 
  • Any student with a fever of a 100.4 or greater should remain home until they are “fever free” (without a fever-reducing medicine) for 24 hours. 
  • Any student who has cold or flu symptoms should stay home for 24 hours.
  • Masks will be required, and social distancing standards will be implemented when possible. 
  • Cleaning procedures will be increased. 
  • Additional hand sanitizer dispensers will be installed in the building.
  • Signs encouraging proper handwashing and sneezing/coughing techniques will be posted.
  •  Classrooms will be provided with hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes.
  • Desks/work areas of sick students will be sanitized immediately.
  • And finally, students and staff are encouraged to stay home if sick. Do not “tough it out.” 
  • Mask policies will be enforced. 
  • Each student has been supplied with a water bottle. All water fountains will be turned off. Instead, Central Nine will be using water bottle filling stations to provide students with access to water throughout the day.  
  • Students will be assigned specific entrances through the buildings. They will also be required to follow floor arrows.
