COVID-19

This summer, we worked hard to update our comprehensive plan for returning to school that dually focuses on safety and high-quality education. We continue to follow appropriate safety precautions and guidelines to keep our school community safe and protected. Our full plan will be released once the Diocese releases their general plan for all schools.
Use the following CDC guidelines to screen for potential symptoms of COVID-19.
Are you experiencing any of the following:
Fever or chills (fever 100.4°F or higher) Cough Fatigue
Muscle or body aches Headache New loss of taste or smell
Sore throat Congestion or runny nose Nausea or vomiting
Diarrhea Shortness of breath  
 
If you are experiencing these symptoms, you should contact your physician to seek further medical advice or possible COVID-19 testing. We strongly encourage anyone that is showing these symptoms to stay home to prevent the possible spread of any possible COVID-19 infection. 
 
The CDC suggests that individuals seek immediate medical attention if you are showing any of the following symptoms: 
  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in chest
  • New confusion
  • Inability to wake or stay awake
  • Bluish lips or face
 
If you have been out of the country, please self-quarantine for 14 days prior to returning to school.

TEACHER PERSPECTIVES

Mr. Brian Klisavage
"We focus on the students and not the system and we meet them where they are –– giving them individualized options to succeed. Whether open discussions, writing essays, or Zoom lectures, SLS focuses on the person. It's all about the people, and that's why I love being a teacher at SLS."

Mrs. Meloni DiPietro Guthoerl
 
"We will not lower the bar. We have merely changed it. We are holding our students to a standard and keeping them accountable for their grades. It is about figuring out what these kids use daily to communicate and reaching out to them where they are to encourage and engage them to achieve success in this new and ever-changing environment."
