Feeling sick? We kindly ask you to please stay home.
 
According to the CDC, people with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms. This list does not include all possible symptoms, but people with these symptoms may have COVID-19.

Mental Health

Virtual students, isolated from social interaction, can sometimes struggle to stay mentally healthy. This is not unusual, and you are not alone. We want to help you get through this very challenging time.  Help is just a phone call away. If you or anyone you know is struggling with isolation, sadness, or anxiety and need help, there are resources available. Please reach out to one of the following organizations.
 
National Institute of Mental Health
National Helpline for Mental and/or Substance Use Disorders
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
 

 


 

Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities don't earn academic credits but are valuable for developing a student's passions and talents. They can also accentuate a college application and even a resume. The following extracurricular programs are available locally for CCS students. Please contact them directly for more information.
