COVID-19 Response

We want to continue to provide you with the latest information about the coronavirus. Our school leadership team is working to both monitor this situation on a daily basis and manage our response to this outbreak. As a reference we have provided our responses to the developing crisis. We are also continuing to work with our local and state health agency partners. The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) has developed this helpful fact sheet and has a website dedicated to information about this new illness. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also has resources and information about the coronavirus. 

SCHOOL UPDATE:  July 23, 2020
As we work together in mitigating the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, we understand that there is anxiety relative to reopening school for the 2020–2021 school year.  As such, we want to assure you that the health and safety of our students and staff is my number one priority. The decisions we make will align with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), St. Louis Department of Health (STL-DOH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations and or guidelines.

How that will look throughout the 2020-21 school year may differ from day-to-day, week-to-week, and semester-to-semester. We will need to be flexible and will ask for your flexibility as educators who care deeply about transforming the lives of your children.

The school’s C. A. R. E (COVID Action and Re-Entry Education) Planning Team has been meeting since March. This cross-functional team includes all members of the La Salle and De La Salle leadership teams, teachers, parents, and the La Salle Charter School Board of Directors. The team has been charged with assessing both short-term and long-term plans for academic and operational support functions while developing safe and comprehensive guidance for the administrative staff to manage day-to-day priorities. The team has also been working to establish plans for a safe return to school this fall.
