As students, teachers, staff, and essential visitors return to the school in the wake of the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, La Salle Charter School reaffirms its continued commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy environment, and of the additional measures taken to protect students, employees, families, and community members-at-large from the spread of COVID-19. There has been extensive research and consultation with the St. Louis City Department of Health, Department of Secondary Education, medical experts, and consultants specializing in many of the areas of concern (protective equipment, sanitization, contact tracing, etc.) to develop strategies to keep schools open while remaining safe.
We recognize that COVID-19 has, and continues, to affect our community in various ways, creating unique challenges including personal health risks, health risks of family members, the need to care for ill family members, childcare issues, food insecurity, increased stress, and more. For these reasons, the school’s C.A.R.E. (COVID Action and Re-Entry Education) Planning Team has endeavored to establish a Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services (SRCSP) plan while meeting the in-person needs of the school.
- The SRCSP plan addresses health and safety protocols, in-person instruction, and cleaning and disinfecting guidelines. The following outlines key considerations:
- Identify resource needs and supply chains to purchase Personal Protective Equipment (“PPE”), hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, and cleaning supplies
- Establish protocols for responding to positive COVID-19 tests (screening, contact tracing, social distancing, cleaning, etc.)
- Develop policies both proactive and responsive in support of mitigating the spread of COVID-19
- Design employee training
- Establish continuous communication channels regarding safety measures and expectations.
To address the core principle of the health and well-being of our students, teachers, staff, vendors, and essential visitors, safety measures were developed in alignment with local, state, and federal guidelines. The health measures outlined in the SRCSP are required of all members of the school community.
