COVID-19

The battle against the spread of COVID-19 is still evolving, so we continue to monitor local, state, and federal developments daily, and we are prepared to adjust operations as may be needed. These challenging times absolutely demand the best of all of us, acting in the spirit and tradition of Ursuline Academy to successfully respond to change. 

Please know that our most essential partnership is with you, the members of our Ursuline community. We urge our students and families to follow the CDC guidelines, when on campus and off, as well as local, state, and federal recommendations. We know you will encourage your daughters and family members to act responsibly, and to take care of one another.

What to know about the Omicron Variant.

Our first responsibility is to always try to protect our entire Ursuline community by following best practices to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

QUARANTINE PROTOCOLS
As of January 3, 2022: You may be aware that the CDC updated its isolation and quarantine requirements on December 27. Aligning with the Office of Catholic Schools, Ursuline does not plan to adjust quarantine times until we have more information to determine what measures may be needed to keep our school open. Wearing masks will help students remain in school and keep faculty and staff on campus.

Quarantine protocols still stand: unvaccinated students who are contact traced and have had exposure to an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 are required to quarantine for 10 days, and vaccinated students may come to school, monitor for symptoms, and test 3-5 days following exposure.

MASK WEARING
As of January 3, 2022: We are returning to mandatory masking at this time for all on campus, including visitors, to help minimize transmission of COVID-19 at Ursuline.

REPORTING
If your daughter has any COVID-19 symptoms or has had a possible exposure to COVID-19, we ask that you alert the School Nurse Susie Murray and the Attendance Office immediately.
