Protocol for 2021-2022 School Year

PROTOCOLS :
 
Dear parents and friends,
 
We were all looking forward to starting the school year as close to normal as possible. I guess Covid had another plan. We do pray that these needed changes in our protocols won’t be around for long.
 
Please understand that these changes are in the best interest of our students and staff.
 
With that being said, we have been given the following updated protocols from The Office of Catholic Schools:
 
Student Indoor Activities: 3 -6 feet social distance must be observed and masks are required. What this means:
  • Students must wear masks at all times at school,
  • Students will eat in their homerooms as they did last year. They will be able to purchase meals from the cafeteria.
  • Monthly Mass will be offered by grade level to accommodate 3 feet social distance.
  • Seating charts will be required in classrooms so that we can contact trace for exposure.
  • The pep rally scheduled for August 20th will be postponed to a later date when restrictions have been reduced or lifted.
 
 
Virtual School will only be offered to students who test positive or who are quarantined due to contact tracing at school. What this means:
  • Students who test positive will have access to attend class remotely and attendance will be taken virtually. If a student does not feel well enough to attend class they will be marked absent due to illness and will not be required to make up hours.
  • Students who must quarantine due to exposure at school, will have access to attend class remotely and attendance will be taken virtually.
 
 
Student Outdoor Activities: students wear masks and are encouraged to social distance when possible. What this means:
  • We will follow the same protocols as last spring with regards to athletics.
  • Capacity at outdoor events (football games, etc.) will not be limited but mask wearing and social distancing will be encouraged. We will live stream as many events/activities/games as possible.
 
 
Quarantine: If a student is vaccinated they do not need to quarantine. If a student has not been vaccinated but has proof of a positive test within the past 90 days, they do not need to quarantine. If a student has not been vaccinated and has not tested positive in the past 90 days they will need to quarantine for 10 days.
