COVID Mitigation Plan update

Jesuit is acutely aware of the state of the COVID virus and its Delta variant and knows we must all still be prudent in our efforts on virus mitigation. The safety of all members of our community has been and will continue to be our first priority. We have learned a great deal on how to safely be in school and safely engage in the many co-curricular and religious activities that are critical for us to advance our mission. Jesuit Sacramento will be following the guidance of public health experts and respond as necessary to the state of the virus in our community. Students will also be given detailed instructions on their expectations at orientations. These policies will be used to begin our school year and will be re-evaluated in mid-September as we anticipate state and county guidelines will be updated. Please see our FAQs for more information on commonly asked questions.

Health and Safety Update – Local reports of “rainbow” fentanyl pills targeting minors

Local law enforcement and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) officials have seen an alarming influx of “rainbow” fentanyl (an extremely potent and dangerous synthetic opioid) in the greater Sacramento region that is being marketed to kids and young adults. Rainbow fentanyl can be found in many forms, including pills, powder, and blocks that can resemble sidewalk chalk or candy.


State still has mask mandate in place for schools
CDPH to provide update on Feb. 28

Monday, California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly provided a statewide update on the progress of combating COVID-19 in schools and introduced the state’s pathway for relaxing school masking mandates. On Feb 28, the state will announce the timeline to lift the school masking mandate as long as COVID-19 health metrics continue to improve.


Student Parking Reminders
A message from the Dean

Neighbors and other commuters have recently reported several incidents of dangerous and/or distracted driving by individuals coming into our campus. All laws in the state vehicle code relating to the operation of motor vehicles are to be obeyed when driving on or near the school grounds. Excessive speed or careless driving on campus endangers pedestrians and everyone on the road. This type of reckless driving renders a student liable to suspension of his driving and parking privileges and will result in disciplinary action.


What should students do in blackouts/evacuations?
Your health and safety come first, then check in with school

Whether it is severe rain, heatwaves, wildfires, or other causes with the potential for power outages or evacuations, we want to remind our students and families that first and foremost, your health and safety come first.

Although the current power outages in our region have not impeded Jesuit Sacramento’s ability to provide online instruction at this time, we understand it could impact some students’ ability to access their online classes.
