Updated Protocol for 2021-2022 School Year

Dear parents and students,
We are seeing a decline in Covid transmissions in the school and in the community. The Office of Catholic Schools, with the consultation and approval of the principals, has updated the Covid protocols for high school students. On Monday, November 8th  the following protocols will be observed:
  • Fully vaccinated students are no longer required to wear masks or physically distance from others.
  • It is recommended that those who are not fully vaccinated wear masks while inside the school and maintain a 3-foot distance from others.  Wearing a mask and maintaining the 3-foot distance comes with an additional benefit. Like those who are fully vaccinated, they do not have to quarantine if exposed to a person who tests positive.
  • The "Test to Stay" modified 7 day quarantine for close contacts allows an exposed community member to return to school after 7 days with a negative PCR test on day 5, 6 or 7. Home Covid tests are not acceptable. If not, the quarantine remains 10 days for exposed students who have not been vaccinated.
  • When feasible, the school will provide areas to allow those who are not fully vaccinated the space for the 3-foot physical distancing.
  • Schools will not require proof of vaccination.
  • Schools will not monitor the wearing of masks
  • Temperatures will no longer be taken upon arrival to school
  • Parents and visitors will be allowed on campus
  • Planning for local field trips will resume.
Our doors will still open at 7:30 AM. We will continue contact tracing and we will continue to be vigilant about cleaning and sanitizing our campus to help keep our students and our faculty safe and healthy. Students who are not vaccinated are encouraged to continue wearing masks and to maintain a social distance when possible.
