2021 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.

Protecting Ourselves

  • 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.

How will the School manage students with COVID-19 symptoms?

  • Anyone who displays symptoms and/or has a temperature of 100.4 or higher will be sent to the School Clinic for evaluation and next step care. 
  • Anyone required to leave campus will be asked to see their physician for further recommendation and return to school protocol.  

What about visitors?

  • The School is currently closed to most outside visitors. Visitors are prohibited unless prior authorization is received.

What if someone in the School community tests positive for COVID-19?

  • Students, faculty and staff who test positive for COVID-19, shall quarantine and abide by School protocols, which are continually evaluated based on CDC guidelines. before returning to campus.  

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.
