COVID19 Re-Opening Plans

 

We realize this unprecedented time is a hardship on families, and ask you to remember the words of Saint Peter who tells us to keep our thoughts and prayers centered on trusting in the Lord: "Cast all your anxieties on God, because He cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7)

Our school program for 2020-21 provides daily, full-time, in-person learning experiences for our PreK through 8th grade students. We also have a remote-learning option to meet the needs of families. The school faculty appreciates our school families' collaboration and prayers as we have been navigating an ever-changing environment. Our teachers are partnering with parents to continue to offer the outstanding St. Louise School education for which we are known.

The faculty are proud to be successfully teaching in-person in 2020-21 in all grade levels, especially when we hear that the majority of schools have never taught in-person this entire school year or have just limited hours and days allowing students on campus.  We have been hearing from St. Louise School parents how much happier and mentally-healthier their children have been since they have been able to return to in-person schooling. Furthermore, St. Louise students are keeping up academically and progressing well in grade-level expectations, especially when compared to students in most other schools.

Our re-opening plans are below for you to refer to should you need more information.

As you will read, our reopening plan is well thought-out, very detailed, and provides assurance to parents and staff that St. Louise is a secure, healthy place for students and employees! With our spacious classroom areas, small class sizes, and disciplined, rule-following children, we are perfectly set up to be able to safely run school in-person during this time of COVID-precautions. We applaud the efforts from parents, students, and teachers to make this a successful school year!

Knowing that in-person learning is the best approach for our kids, we thank everyone for their willingness to work with our special procedures, even though some may seem bothersome or unfamiliar. The vigilance of school parents is appreciated, letting us know if any family members are exposed to COVID-19, or if any child has flu-like symptoms. With everyone following the plan as outlined below, we have been successful at keeping the St. Louise community safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Almighty Father,

We trustingly pray to you, asking that the coronavirus may do no more harm, that the epidemic may be swiftly gotten under control, and that you restore the health of those affected and peace to the places where the virus has arrived. Welcome into your kingdom the people who have died from this illness, and comfort their families. Sustain and protect the healthcare personnel who are fighting it, and inspire and bless those working to control it. Lord Jesus, doctor of our bodies and souls, we feel impotent in the face of this international health emergency, but we trust in You. Give us peace and health.

Amen.
