Students, don’t forget to exchange your ID card in the Main Office!
We want to make you aware that Jesuit High School will be conducting an outdoor rally event on Friday, September 10 from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. This event will occur at the lower part of campus. We anticipate minimal, if any, impact to you, our neighbors in regard to parking and traffic. We are appreciative of you and your support of Jesuit High School.
Jesuit High School will conduct its annual campus-wide safety drill on Tuesday, September 7, between 10:50 – 11:55 a.m.
Neighbors may hear sirens and announcements or observe students and staff practicing evacuating campus and staging on sidewalks and common areas adjacent to campus.
Again, this is only a practice drill, and there is no need for worry.
NOTE - The safety drill will include a test of the parent/guardian emergency contact call system which may use one or all methods by emails, calls, and text..
MASKING – As we begin to see school closures locally and across the country, we want to continue to be attentive to our mitigation efforts. While most of our students have been excellent in their cooperation with wearing masks properly while indoors, our teachers and staff are finding that some students need a constant reminder. Students in this situation may be asked to leave the classroom and report to the Dean’s Office during class if they are in need of a constant reminder. We also ask that you help to make sure your son brings a properly functioning mask and a backup mask to school each day.
TRAFFIC – Another good reminder as we begin to find our rhythm in this school year is ensuring you take sufficient time in the morning to avoid being tardy. As more schools begin to open and fewer families are carpooling, traffic seems to have increased throughout the area. Please account for possible traffic delays in your commute to ensure on-time arrival.
We once again want to thank our students and families for the manner in which you have partnered with Jesuit to maintain a safe and open campus.

This is a good time to remind families of some basic expectations as they relate to our COVID mitigation. Please keep students home from school when sick and notify our school nurse of any positive cases or exposures in your family. This has been working well so far and we appreciate the support and communication from our families. We have seen relatively few cases in our school community since the start of the school year.
If we do start to see cases rise in our school community, Jesuit may ask that all students show proof of vaccine or provide a recent negative COVID test as an added layer of safety. Families will be notified in advance, will be given plenty of time to provide proof of vaccine or negative test. Using this tool as an occasional layer of mitigation will help us to be safe, minimize exposures and quarantines, and ensure that the campus can remain open for all students, faculty, and staff. Again, we share this as a possible option should the school feel it is a necessary step.

Jesuit’s annual back-to-school dance, that was originally to be held in the Barry Gym, has been shifted outdoors because of the recently published public health COVID safety guidelines provided to all schools by the county and state.
We want to make you aware that there will be a Freshman/Sophomore Dance Saturday, August 21, 2021, from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m.
