COVID-19: School Communication and Information

Last Updated September 1, 2020 at 4:12 P.m.

Pope Francis has offered that “present difficulties have stimulated the creativity and inventiveness” and this has invited us to new methods of engagement and ministry.  No matter what schedule or limitations present themselves, our mission “to assist young men in their formation as leaders and Men for Others through rigorous college preparation in the Jesuit tradition” will not change. 

 

  1. Balancing the comprehensive health and safety of our students and community with our mission is our top priority.

  2. We will execute this plan with the care, attention to detail, flexibility, and excellence that you have come to expect from St. Xavier High School.

Daily Symptoms Check

Your new morning routine at home will now look something like this:

1.  Wake Up!

2.  Take your temperature.  (A temperature of 100 or higher means you need to stay home.)

3.  Check for the following:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • New Loss of Taste or Smell
  • Significant Cough
  • Sore Throat
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Fatigue
  • Diarrhea or Vomiting
  • Runny Nose
  • Body / Muscle Aches
  • Close Contact
  • Traveled to a COVID "hotspot" within last 14 days.

4.  Fill out the survey according to how you are feeling and your symptoms.  Even if your symptoms can be explained, please indicate your symptoms in the survey.  The link below is the original link if you have NOT registered yet!  Do not sign up more than once.  The first time you register you will be sent a link to your specific survey for everyday use (please don’t share this link with others – it is your specific link – SAVE IT).  

Daily Symptoms Survey

5.  If symptoms do not indicate a contagious disease or can be explained (ie. known allergies, recent exercise, etc.) come to school.  As depicted in the chart, some symptoms can be the result of something else and NOT only COVID-19.  As usual, students should stay home with symptoms such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, as well as students with any contagious disease or condition (including Strep, Common Cold / with any heavy mucus, fever, sneezing, Flu, virus etc.) 

6.  If your symptoms cannot be explained, stay home until you have a clear explanation (cleared by doctor, negative test result, self-quarantine)  and until you are symptom free for 24 hours.

7.  If a student will not be at school, a parent is expected to email the school at attendance@stxavier.org. The student will contact his teachers and attend class virtually, if possible.  Faculty and staff who will not be on campus are expected to contact their supervisor.

 REMINDERS:

  • New onset of symptoms or worsening of explained symptoms during the school day may result in leaving school and returning home.
  • If the symptom(s) do not continue or worsen, and then resolve, and other symptoms do not arise for 24 hours, the student may return to school following consultation with school medical personnel (nurse or athletic trainer) and possibly his physician. During an absence, students who are able to attend online will not be counted absent.

Exposure to COVID?

  • Throughout the year, some members of the student body, faculty, and staff are likely to have COVID and have been present at school when they are contagious but either pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic.  “Close contact” is contact with a COVID-positive individual in a manner that is more likely to transmit the virus.  Close contact is defined as being closer than 6 feet, for 15 minutes (cumulative) or more with a COVID-positive individual.
  • For any close contact to COVID (either at school or away from school) it is best to seek medical advice, to engage the school in conversation about how to proceed, and work with the school to create a return plan.  The plan will include one or all of the following and will be handled on a case by case basis: communication from the family Doctor’s office to the school acknowledging they are cleared to return, a negative test that will be shared with the school nurse, and self-quarantine for 14 days.  During any quarantine period, if your son is able to continue attendance through remote resources and keep up with all assignments he will not be counted absent.
