Return to School - Protection and Sanitation
Protection & Precautions
Reminders- Personal Protection and Campus Precautions: Symptom Checks, Face Coverings, Cleaning, Layouts/Flow, etc.
General precautions – Students, faculty, coaches, and staff must adhere to physical distancing, mask-wearing, and sanitization. All are encouraged to limit mixing households, carpooling, and follow recommended travel limitations to support the school’s virus mitigation efforts. Clubs and teams may have additional guidelines in order to comply with their governing organization’s guidelines.
Our Principal, Mike Wood, speaks to KCRA about our safe return plans, with his focus on us being in this together and placing first the safety and well-being of faculty, staff, and students.
- All students, faculty and staff must wear masks. This includes the parking lot, hallways while waiting for class, and all other locations inside or outside while on campus
- Those unable to wear a mask for medical reasons may petition to be allowed to wear a face shield with cloth drape
- Masks may be removed briefly only when in a marked “breathing spot” or when approved by a coach during athletic events.
*These procedures and protocols are all prefaced that they will be executed when state and local health officials deem it safe to be on-campus. Please refer to the full Safe Return Plan for more information.
A note regarding travel
The California Department of Public Health’s travel advisory due to COVID-19 recommends all persons to avoid non-essential travel to any part of California more than 120 miles from one’s place of residence, or to other states or countries. All persons arriving in or returning to California from other states or countries are advised to self-quarantine for 10 days after their arrival.
Please be mindful that while Jesuit is not mandating travel restrictions, Jesuit’s Safe Return Plan is predicated on following recommended guidelines minimizing risk to the entire community. If you choose to travel, please thoughtfully consider keeping your son in distance learning upon his return for one week, and have him participate in the weekly antigen screening at the start of the following screening cycle.
What Jesuit will be using for COVID screening
- Checks for active virus so we can catch asymptomatic students/staff
- Quick, shallow swab.
