COVID-19 Response

The health and well-being of St. Benedict’s community of students, faculty, staff and families continues to be our highest priority.

 

Therefore, St. Benedict’s will be closed for students until Monday, March 30.  As planned, on March 16 and 17 faculty and staff will take part in professional development specifically around remote learning.  Remote learning for students will begin on Wednesday, March 18.  Prior to that date, we will send out detailed plans of what remote learning will look like for every child at St. Benedict’s. 

 

Additionally, we will send out a Parent/Teacher conference plan with the remote learning plan.

On Monday and Tuesday, the campuses will undergo a deep cleaning by our vendor. 

 

We continue to stay up to date on the dynamic response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  Our information and responses are based on information from the CDC, NAIS, SAIS and correspondence with a group of local and national independent heads of schools.

Your Partnership in Prevention and Self-Isolation

  • Please adhere to the prevention techniques outlined by the CDC, such as hand washing, avoid touching face, cover cough, etc. 

  • If you have traveled to or been in close contact with anyone who has traveled to any of the Level 2 or 3 countries listed here, follow the CDC recommendation for a 14 day self-isolation to monitor symptoms.  

  • The same would apply to any individuals who test positive for COVID-19 or individuals who come in contact with someone who has tested positive.

  • Be sure to cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or sleeve 

  • Wash your hands regularly, for at least 20 seconds and using friction, especially after coughing or sneezing 

  • Avoid touching your face

  • Get your flu shot – it’s never too late! 

 

It is very important for you to: 

  • Keep your child(ren) at home if they are sick

  • Contact St. Benedict's if your family or someone in your family is traveling to one of the countries the CDC has identified as having widespread sustained transmission

  • Alert Nurse Cheryl or Nurse Sue if your child or someone in your family tests positive for COVID-19
