Dear Students, Parents, Faculty & Staff of CHSW:
Within the past hour, Cranston Public Schools was notified of a positive test result of the novel coronavirus(COVID-19) for a student at Cranston High School West.  The school department is working with our partners at the Rhode Island Department of Health(RIDOH) to provide you with the latest information as this situation unfolds.
As a result of the circumstances, the  RIDOH has instructed the school department to issue the following guidance to all members of the Cranston High School West school community:
- Beginning today, all students, faculty and staff of Cranston High School West must quarantine themselves at home, under an abundance of caution, for the next 14 days.
- Students, faculty and staff under the quarantine should not leave their homes for the duration of the 14 day quarantine
- Those affected by the quarantine should monitor themselves if they begin to exhibit the following symptoms: fever, cough, sore throat and shortness of breath.
- Parents, siblings and other family members may leave their homes, at their discretion, but should not admit visitors for any reason.
- Parents, siblings and other family members that begin to exhibit the aforementioned symptoms should also quarantine themselves for 14 days.
 
If you have any health related questions please contact the RIDOH directly at the following phone numbers:  Monday- Friday, 8:30 A.M - 4:30 P.M. at  401-222-2577, and after hours at 401-276-8046.
 
I cannot stress how important it is for EVERYONE to follow the CHSW quarantine. I know it is inconvenient and difficult to do this, but it is only the first full day and people are out. We know students are at the mall and adults are out doing their regular Saturday errands. This is not helpful, and potentially dangerous.
 
Admittedly, nobody knows what will happen seemingly hour to hour with the spread of this virus. But, the least we can do as good, responsible citizens is follow what the health experts are asking us to do. If you don't think it is important for yourself to do this, please consider the potential impact on someone else's health.
 
Thank you,
Jeannine Nota-Masse, Superintendent
Cranston Public Schools
