The Health and Safety Committee is comprised of committed school parents, parishioners and administrators with expertise in the medical, facilities and education fields.
The committee has organized its reopening campaign around the theme Get Ready: Screen (temperature + symptom checks), Shield (mask wearing), Sanitize (clean hands, masks + surfaces), Space (social distancing practices). Comprehensive health and safety plans are being designed and delivered in the following four supportive sections.UPDATED COVID GUIDANCE LEARN ABOUT OUR FOCUS ON INDOOR AIR QUALITY AIR PLAN FACT SHEET
GET READY: TO WEAR A MASK!
Keeping your family’s health a top priority, the Health and Safety Committee diligently tracks new research and updates as they become available. Most recently, studies on the effectiveness of neck gaiters have come to our attention. While neck gaiters cover the entire front of the face (nose, mouth, chin, and neck), they are not scientifically proven by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to prevent you from: (1) contracting a virus/disease/illness or (2) passing a virus/disease/illness to someone else. Due to this new information, we have removed neck gaiters from the list of school-approved face coverings.7.30.20 GET READY!
