Per the CDC, “COVID-19 vaccines currently authorized in the United States have been shown to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 infections, including asymptomatic and symptomatic infection, severe disease, and death. These findings, along with the early evidence for reduced viral load in vaccinated people who develop COVID-19, suggest that any associated transmission risk is likely to be substantially reduced in vaccinated people.”
Given the recent increase in positive COVID-19 cases in North Texas and the presence of the Delta Variant, all students will wear masks while indoors in accordance with current CDC and Diocesan guidance.
Desks for K-8th will be spaced 3 feet apart per CDC guidelines. Students will hand-wash upon entering the building, before lunch, and after recess; and they will use the hand sanitizers available in the hallways frequently. Enhanced cleaning/disinfecting will also continue in the school. Temperatures will no longer be taken when students enter the building. As was communicated last year, to keep students and staff safe, please keep your student home if he/she has a fever and/or is experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms. Students must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medicine before returning to campus.
If there is a positive COVID-19 case on campus, the community will be notified.
During the school year, all parents, visitors, and vendors on campus will be required to wear masks while indoors.
All parents will be required to sign a COVID-19 waiver.
