1. In-Person Learning Pathway
Seton Catholic Schools is actively working with the health department and mayor’s office to get clarification on a safe reopening for the upcoming Fall 2020 academic school year. This includes establishing a robust safety plan for each of our schools that will require approval of the City Health Department.
It is likely that we will be able to open for in-person learning this fall. However, there will be limits on student capacity in the classroom to allow for safe distancing, which we have already taken into consideration.
Students will return to the school building for in-person learning with enhanced safety measures to provide layers of protection against the virus. We will maintain small pods of students that learn, eat and play together, with one or two teachers, to limit student and teacher exposure. Students and staff will have their temperature taken and be checked for symptoms upon arrival at school. Face coverings will be mandatory for students and staff. We will adhere to distancing students six feet apart in classrooms and implement regular hand washing and use of hand sanitizer in addition to regular, rigorous cleaning and disinfecting of the building. We will also implement a strict visitor policy to limit the number of adults entering the building.
