Do students need to be vaccinated to attend class?
No, however, Jesuit is following the
Center for Disease Control (CDC) and
CDPH recommendations which encourage vaccines for students.
Currently, these do not have a vaccine requirement
Do I need to show proof of vaccination?
No, however, we are encouraging those with
vaccination to upload a copy of their card into Final Forms. Jesuit is
not requiring students to show proof of a COVID 19
Do you want proof of vaccination if I have it?
Yes! For families that wish to share their
child’s proof of the COVID vaccine, a portal has been set up in
Final Forms so
that the vaccine card can be scanned and uploaded. Having this
information is extremely helpful during contact tracing as there
are different quarantine guidelines for people who are either
vaccinated or non-vaccinated. Submitting proof of the COVID
vaccine is optional for families.
What are the current quarantine guidelines? Does it change if I’m
The updated CDPH guidelines articulates different protocols for
vaccinated and unvaccinated people regarding quarantine. For
example, unvaccinated students will likely need to quarantine
following a positive exposure, while vaccinated students will
not. Jesuit sincerely respects that families have the
freedom to make this choice, and we feel it is important that we
are honest and transparent regarding the implications of that
choice as it pertains to a return to school. Jesuit High School
Sacramento follows these guidelines as well as the local
Sacramento County Department of Public Health

Do I need to wear a mask?
Yes, indoors only. As of July 30, 2021,
Sacramento County Public Health issued a mask mandate requiring
all individuals to wear face-covering indoors. Masks are to be
worn on the Jesuit High School Sacramento campus when indoors.
Masks are optional when outdoors. See our Face Covering Policy for more
Should I still stay home if I’m symptomatic? Even if I’m
YES, STAY HOME WHEN SYMPTOMATIC. The school will
continue its work to enculturate all members of our community to
be attentive to symptoms and not attend school or work when
symptomatic or when any member of their household has tested
positive for COVID or is awaiting test results. We can expect
that students and employees will miss school or work due to
possible exposure, required isolation, and the presence of
symptoms. We will support community members in following this
important practice, and we will create systems that minimize the
impact of missing school or work. The systems include using our
digital platforms, office hours with teachers, and Zoom access to
a class in certain situations.
Do I have to take/log an online daily symptom self-check before
coming to campus?
No. At this time, there will not be a required
“daily symptom tracker,” but we ask that all take a moment to
self-evaluate before leaving home each morning. As a reminder,
please reference this printable graphic—download symptom self-check card
Is it just me, or do these policies keep changing?
Jesuit High School Sacramento carefully monitors the current
community health conditions and follows all county and state
guidelines. The state released partial California Department of
Public Health (CDPH) guidelines for schools in June, and
schools are still awaiting more details and further clarification
for some areas of activity. As we have come to experience, both
the guidelines and the state of the pandemic in our area are
subject to change.
