Charleston Day School

Health and Safety Enhancements

Charleston Day School continues to work with MUSC’s Back to Business as we reopen for 2021-2022. We will continue to focus on utilizing a layered approach to school safety.  The personal hygiene and sanitation plans that were put into effect last year were effective and will remain in place, with students washing and/or sanitizing their hands frequently, including upon arrival at school, daily in-school sanitation, nightly deep cleaning, and regular all-campus treatment with the Microsonic NovaRover. In addition, the iWave Air Purifiers that the school invested in last year for our HVAC units continue to provide improved air quality across the school.

Per Charleston Day School’s 2021-22 opening plan, we will continue to closely monitor the guidance from health agencies such as SCDHEC, the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and MUSC.  In addition, we will consider conditions in the Charleston area, and our school community. We are also fortunate to have several CDS parents who are physicians with specialties in infectious diseases and pediatric emergency medicine on our Board COVID Advisory Committee.
