2022 COVID-19 Policies & Procedures
Various measures have been put into place to help secure the safety and wellbeing of our students, faculty, and the broader School community.
Hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette are emphasized and reinforced with all students, faculty, and staff who are on campus, according to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Additionally, regular cleaning and sanitization protocols have been established for all classrooms, bathrooms, offices, and general spaces using disinfectant sprayer.
- As a community that values individual rights and concerns, we ask that all students, faculty, staff, and parents respect one other and demonstrate care and compassion.
- St. Johns supports family decisions to wear protective face coverings.
- Once students are on campus, faculty and staff continue to monitor and reinforce health protocols.
What are the COVID-19 Protocols?
- If your child tests positive for COVID-19, please inform the applicable Division Head as soon as possible. St. Johns will require students who test positive to quarantine for 5 days. We strongly encourage mask-wearing while at school for the five days following exposure.
- If your child is exposed, please actively monitor them for symptoms. We strongly encourage mask-wearing while at school for the five days following exposure.
- A negative COVID test is not required for return to school after the five days of quarantine.
- School work and online learning will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
What if our COVID-19 cases increase?
In the event that 15% of students School-wide test positive within a ten day period for COVID-19, the School will implement a policy requiring masks of students, faculty, and staff whenever they are inside. If we should reach 25% of students School-wide testing positive within a ten day period, the School will re-introduce bridged (distance) learning, which will be maintained until the end of the current academic quarter or until we get back to 15%, whichever comes first.
