Check this young man out! Radley Pruett created a fundraiser for Links of Love outside of school and just now dropped of the proceeds. How fun it is to see our young people get excited about giving and helping. Our students are the world changers, no matter the age! Many of our students have literally emptied their piggy banks, gave their birthday money or Christmas money and have been so generous. Staff and students have taken home links to make chains at home and our husbands have been working to help us hang links in the halls. This is an amazing community that pulls together in times of need. I am proud to be a Wildcat!

As we return to school tomorrow please be aware that we will be following protocols to decrease exposure to COVID- 19. As per the Return to Learn Plan, face coverings will be required while there is evidence of community spread. Face coverings were provided to your students. Please make sure your students have their mask or face covering before coming to school everyday. They may wear one that was provided, or bring another from home. ALL Students are required to wear face coverings while on buses. If your student is experiencing 2 or more symptoms, fever, cough, headache, body aches, loss of taste, loss of smell, or has been exposed to COVID-19 please do not send them to school. Contact your building principal either by email or phone and let them know. Please refer to the Return to Learn Plan located under distance learning at choutauwildcats.com. These measures, along with social distancing, hand washing, and sanitizing our buses and buildings have allowed us to stay in school without closures thus far. We realize that these measures are not ideal for everyone, but our goal is to keep our students in school. Please also be aware that the Return to Learn Plan is subject to change. The Plan is located at www.chouteauwildcats.com.
November 20, 2020 Dear Chouteau-Mazie Families: I hope this letter finds you all well. As community spread is occurring we are taking necessary precautions to protect our students and staff at Chouteau-Mazie Schools. As per the Return to Learn Plan, face coverings will be required while there is evidence of community spread. Face coverings were provided to your students. They need to continue to bring them to school and wear them as directed. We have had problems specifically on buses, where masks have been required all year by all students. These measures, along with social distancing, hand washing, and sanitizing our buses and buildings have allowed us to stay in school without closures thus far. We realize that these measures are not ideal for everyone, but our goal is to keep our students in school. Please also be aware that the Return to Learn Plan is subject to change. The Plan is located at www.chouteauwildcats.com. In the event that schools can not return after Thanksgiving we are sending home the technology for your student to distance learn. Your student has been instructed in how to use their technology for distance learning. If you have questions please feel free to contact your student’s teacher. If you are traveling over the break please refer frequently to the Travelers Guidance at cdc.gov. Thank you for your careful attention to student and staff safety. If your student experiences symptoms, or is exposed to COVID-19 during the break, please do not send them back to school. Contact your building principal via email and we will follow up with your family after Thanksgiving break. We will share information as we receive additional guidance in the coming days. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Lori Helton Superintendent
November 5, 2020 Dear Chouteau-Mazie Families: I am reaching out to share with you that we were notified that one of our middle school students has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. This affects 2 staff members, and students from 7th grade primarily who have been identified as direct contacts. All staff members and students who are known to have been in direct contact have been contacted personally by school officials. If your student was identified as a direct contact, we ask that you monitor your student’s health and isolate at home to prevent the possible spread of the virus. According to federal law(s) we are not at liberty to share the name of the students in order to protect their privacy. It is imperative that we all continue to work together to ensure our community members remain safe and healthy. Please know that Chouteau-Mazie will continue to monitor the situation and will provide additional information as we receive it. Sincerely, Lori Helton Superintendent Chouteau-Mazie Public Schools
