Covid-19 Protocols

The St Mary Shnorhali School continues to lean on the expertise of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and DC Health for guidance on COVID-19 school operations. For the 2021-2022 academic year here is what families can expect at school to maintain a safe environment for in-person learning:

 

  • Practice safe routines: All staff, students, and visitors must wear a mask or face covering, and PPE and hygiene supplies will be provided.​

  • Enhanced cleaning protocols for high touch surfaces.

  • Space arrangements: Students should be separated as far as possible, and individual desks and tables are to be facing the same direction to the extent feasible. 

  • Student cohort interactions will be limited to the extent feasible, but there will be no cap for student or staff cohort interactions in any grade.​  

  • COVID-19 reporting protocols: Schools will report positive cases within the school community if a person has been in the building during their infectious period, along with a quarantine protocol. 

 

These layered mitigation strategies will ensure that our school is physically safe and healthy learning environments.
