TRAVEL AND VACCINE UPDATES

DIOCESE OF BROOKLYN NOTIFICATION


Welcome 2022!
We hope everyone had a healthy Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
The Catholic Academies and Parish Schools within the Diocese of Brooklyn plan to continue to safely offer “in person” instruction for our school communities.
Until further notice, all Catholic Academies and Parish Schools will continue to follow all the current COVID Safety and Health Guidelines while the COVID Response Team assesses the new CDC and NYS DOH Updated Guidelines released during the Christmas Recess, we await information from Mayor Adams, and we continue to monitor the positive case reporting within our schools.  Updates will be shared with the schools during this time.
We can all help “slow the spread” of COVID-19 by being mindful of the school’s COVID Safety and Health Protocols. With the current Omicron surge it is most important that the administration, faculty, staff, students, and parents please help “slow the spread” by
1.    Staying Home if you are sick
2.    Do not come to school if you or a household family member has pending COVID test results
3.    Follow the COVID Safety and Health Protocols
4.    Consult your healthcare provider regarding  COVID testing and vaccines
We thank you for your continued support and cooperation in helping to “slow the spread” and keep our school communities healthy and safe.
May God Continue to Bless Us All in the New Year!

Diocese of Brooklyn Back to School Press Release Aug 2021

You can help keep our school community safe and healthy by following these important “Core Four” actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission: 

  • Stay home if sick: Monitor your health and stay home if you are sick except for getting essential medical care (including COVID-19 testing) and other essential needs.
  • Physical distancing: Stay at least 6 feet away from people who are not members of your household.
  • Wear a face covering: Protect those around you. Wearing a face covering helps reduce the spread of COVID-19, especially if you are sick and don’t have symptoms. For more information about face coverings, visit nyc.gov/health/coronavirus and look for “FAQ About Face Coverings.”
  • Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available; clean frequently touched surfaces regularly; avoid touching your face with unwashed hands; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands.

Visitation Academy will continue to closely follow all direction of public health experts and proactively update you on any measures we are taking. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our school community.

As the new school year begins, it is the shared responsibility of the entire community – faculty, staff, students, parents – to follow important health and safety guidelines.

Wearing face coverings, physical distancing, and other important protocols will help us all stay healthy and keep our community safe.

As per the regulations from the Diocese, Visitation Academy will:

*Require all students and staff to wear masks in the school building

*Continue all health and safety protocols established in our Re-Opening Plan – increased ventilation and air filters, frequent hand washing and sanitizing, cleaning and disinfecting of the school building and high-touch surfaces, social distancing

*Limit in-person presence to only those staff who are necessary to be at the school during normal school hours

*Shift design of class schedules to accommodate social distancing guidelines

*Students will be required to stay home if sick and have medical clearance to return to school

*All Catholic Academies and Parish Schools will continue to follow city and state guidelines regarding contact tracing, quarantine and isolation protocols

*Implement/enforce hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette practices. 

* physical distancing procedures. 

*Decrease social meetings and contact between individuals. 

*Minimize student mixing of classes. 

*Allow for more frequent handwashing and supervise use of hand sanitizer. 

*Reduce the contact frequency for surfaces. 

*Limit sharing of equipment and supplies. 

*Clean/disinfect shared supplies after use. 

*Hold classes outside to provide fresh air and physical distance – when possible. 

*Reinforce meal and snack policies 

*Limit the use of cloth/fabric chairs or other items with soft, porous surfaces. 

*Provide safety information for equipment and products used to prevent COVID-19 transmission. 

*Clean/disinfect frequently touched surfaces on enhanced schedule. 

*Use NYS DEC- and EPA-registered disinfectants that are effective against COVID-19. 

*Employ PPE to protect individuals from the COVID-19 virus as recommended by CDC and American Academy of Pediatrics

In this ever-changing and fluid situation, many regulations and guidelines continue to change and update.  We will continue to share changes in protocols with our families when available.

Quarantine and Travel COVID-19 Safety and Health Protocols from Diocese of Brooklyn

 

  • *All health-related policies and procedures have been adopted from the regulations published by the CDC, NYC DOHMH and NYS DOHMH NYC. (August 2021)
  • 14.1 Hygiene and Health Requirements
  • 14.1a Face Coverings
  • In accordance with the NYS DOHMH order, all Students are required to wear face coverings when in the school building and maintain appropriate social/physical distancing. Students should bring an appropriate face covering from home. The school will have surgical masks available for students as needed. Students’ cloth face coverings should be clearly identified with their names or initials, to avoid confusion or swapping. Students’ face coverings may also be labeled to indicate top/bottom and front/back. Non-disposable mask should be washed daily.
  • All visitors to the school for any reason will always be required to wear a face covering while on school grounds or in the school building. Faculty and Staff are also required to wear masks
  • All masks for faculty, staff, and students are subject to approval by the principal and Office of the Superintendent of Schools. Masks should be plain and free of any objectionable statements or support for any group, product, political view, and so on, other than the name of their Parish School or Catholic Academy.
  • Students will be provided opportunities for short breaks to remove masks throughout the day, while social distancing, in addition to removing them while eating.
  • There is no outdoor NYS DOHMH face mask policy currently.
  • 14.1b Social Distancing
  • Because of the importance of in-person learning, schools will implement physical distancing to the extent possible within their structures but should not exclude students from in-person learning to keep a minimum distance requirement.
  • Classrooms and other school areas will be set up to ensure social distancing between students. Students will also be required to maintain social distance when they are not at their desk. This is particularly important when students are not wearing face coverings such as while eating or during mask breaks. In general, CDC recommends people who are not fully vaccinated maintain social distance of at least 6 feet from other people who are not in their household. However, several studies from the 2020-2021 school year show low COVID-19 transmission levels among students in schools that had less than 6 feet of physical distance when the school implemented and layered other prevention strategies, such as the use of masks.
  • Based on studies from 2020-2021 school year, CDC recommends schools maintain at least 3 feet of physical distance between students within classrooms, combined with indoor mask wearing to reduce transmission risk. A distance of at least 6 feet is recommended between students and teachers/staff in classrooms.
  • Outside of the classroom setting a distance of six feet social distance should be maintained between students and between students and teachers/staff.
  • Some extracurricular activities such as contact sports, playing a wind instrument or singing may require a social distance of 12 feet.
  • 14.1c Cohorting
  • Students are assigned to a cohort. Cohorting means keeping people together in a small group and having each group stay together throughout an entire day. Cohorting can be used to limit the number of students, teachers, and staff who come in contact with each other, especially when it is challenging to maintain physical distancing, such as among young children, and particularly in areas of moderate-to-high transmission levels. The use of cohorting can limit the spread of COVID-19 between cohorts but should not replace other prevention measures within each group.
  • 14.2 Health Policies
  • If a student or staff members displays symptoms of COVID-19 during the school day, the following procedures will be followed:
  • · Each building will have a designated Isolation Room for students or staff who display symptoms
  • · A student showing symptoms of COVID-19 will be escorted to the Isolation Room by a staff member wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
  • · The area where the student was showing symptoms will be immediately cleaned and disinfected.

  • · Any student placed in the Isolation Room will be adequately supervised by a staff member during this time until the ill student can be picked up.
  • 14.2a Health Screenings
  • Parents/ legal guardians will be asked to monitor and screen students for flu like symptoms prior to their arrival to school grounds. Any student displaying a cold, allergy or flu like symptom should stay home until a healthcare provider submits a note that the student can safely return to in person instruction.

  • · Diarrhea.
  • 14.2b Daily Health Screening Questionnaire
  • Parents/legal guardians will be required to complete for each of their children the Daily Health Screening Questionnaire each day. Students who do not have a completed Daily Health Screening Questionnaire will be
  • kept in a supervised location until their parent/legal guardian can complete the Daily Health Screening Questionnaire or pick up the student from school.

  • · Principal or School designee will Identify the students, faculty and staff who had close contact with the person with COVID-19 during their infectious period. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals are to be included in the identification of close contacts.
  • In school settings, a close contact is someone who has been within 6 feet for 10 or more minutes over a 24-hour period of someone who has COVID-19 during their infectious period, regardless of face mask use or the presence of plexiglass or other barriers. Exception: Per CDC guidance, in the classroom setting, students sitting 3 to 6 feet from a student with COVID-19 do not need to quarantine if they and the student with COVID-19 wore masks correctly and consistently. This exception applies only to students and not to staff.
  • Please Note:
  • § All students in a Nursery, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten class will be considered close contacts and subject to quarantine protocols – exception: vaccinated 5 year olds.

  • § During classroom Mask Breaks, if students are less than 6 feet social distance, for more than 10 minutes, from a COVID positive individual they are considered a close contact and subject to quarantine protocols.

  • At least 12 years old, fully vaccinated* and showing symptoms will be directed to quarantine for 10 calendar days.
  • Unvaccinated will be directed to quarantine for 10 calendar days. On Day 5 of their quarantine, students or staff may take a lab-based molecular COVID-19 test (PCR test), and with a negative result, return to attending school in person after Day 7. Schools should verify negative test results. (Unless the entire class/cohort/pod is out for quarantine)
  • Fully recovered from laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 in the past three months and show no symptoms of COVID-19 since the current exposure may continue to attend school in person. Three months is measured from the date a person first had COVID-19 symptoms or, if they had no symptoms, the date of their first positive diagnostic test.
  • An individual is fully vaccinated two weeks after a single-dose vaccine or second dose of a two-dose vaccine, where the vaccine has received emergency approval from the FDA or World Health Organization.
  • All individuals identified as close contacts to someone with COVID-19 must continue daily symptom monitoring through Day 14. If symptoms occur, they should isolate themselves, contact their health care provider, get tested for COVID-19 and must not attend school.

  • ·Principals or School Designee are to Submit information on close contact information to the NYC Health Department and NYC Test & Trace Corps using the COVID-19 Facility Exposures form. https://nyc-prd.redcapcloud.com/survey.jsp?code=0yiapA9YCekebdd4
  • The contact list for the individual who has COVID-19 should include people’s first and last names, phone numbers, and date of last contact with the person. Dates of birth and addresses may be helpful but not necessary to include.
  • If the Principal or School designee has trouble submitting the contact list using the COVID-19 Facility Exposure form, contact the NYC Health Department for help at facilities@health.nyc.gov.
  • Fully vaccinated individuals who are considered close contacts should be included in the close contacts spreadsheet.
  • 14.6 Returning to School After Isolation, Quarantine or Calling Out Sick:
  • If DOHMH or NYC Test & Trace Corps determine the individual is considered a close contact of a positive case, the individual can only return to school when all the following are met:
  • For Reference:
  • Isolation refers to individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 through a molecular or antigen COVID-19 test.
  • Quarantine refers to individuals who have been identified as close contacts by the NYC DOHMH or NYC Test & Trace Corps.
  •  A person who has completed quarantine does not need a doctor’s note to return to school if they show no symptoms of COVID-19 and did not test positive for COVID-19.
  • ·A person who has completed isolation does need a doctor’s note stating they can safely return to in person instruction. The NYC DOH does not recommend a negative COVID-19 test after isolation as an individual can continue to test positive for many weeks or months after infection even though they are no longer contagious
  • ·A person, faculty, staff, or student, who has called out sick with COVID-19 symptoms is required to submit proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test in addition to a doctor’s note indicating they can safely return to in person instruction.
  • A person, faculty, staff, or student, who has called out sick for any reason other than COVID-19 symptoms is required to submit a doctor’s note indicating they can safely return to in person instruction.
  • Contacts of someone in quarantine do not need to stay home unless the quarantined person develops symptoms of COVID-19 or tests positive for COVID-19 (becomes a case).
  • 14.7 School Closures
  • Academies and parish schools within the Diocese of Brooklyn will continue to work to provide in-person learning if it is safe to do so. Academies and parish schools will follow guidance from city and state health agencies to ensure student safety.
  • If there are multiple confirmed cases of COVID-19 in different classrooms, the school administration will follow the NYC DOHMH guidance on excluding any students, faculty or staff who meet the definition of a close contact. The cases are likely to be independent introductions of COVID-19 to the school from the community, rather than due to COVID-19 transmission within the school. Schools considering whether to close will first discuss options with Deputy Superintendent, Office of the Superintendent~ Catholic Schools Support Services who will consult with the NYC Health Department, which will work collaboratively with the school to keep schools open for in person instruction whenever possible.
  • The decision to close a school is based on various factors including the number of cases over time and their distribution across grades and classrooms, the size of the school, the ability of the school to exclude people who need to be isolated and quarantined in a timely manner, adherence to NYC Health Department guidance, and cooperation with the NYC Health Department.
  • 14.8 Distance Learning
  • Distance learning that is facilitated by a Catholic Academy or Parish School within the Diocese of Brooklyn is bound by all parts of the Acceptable Use Policy. As distance learning requires the use of other mediums such as teleconferencing platforms, virtual classrooms, digital file transfer and online work, there are other factors that need to be addressed.
  • Device Usage – The use of school/academy or personal devices for distance learning is allowed. It is recommended that all school/academy issued accounts only be used for schoolwork purposes and that those accounts are signed out of after work is completed. All usage is governed by this policy.
  • Video/Audio Conferencing – Video or audio-conferencing platforms may be used to facilitate class meetings and communication between teachers and students for teaching and group work. When using these platforms, participants must remember to conduct themselves in a professional manner commensurate with behavior expected in a physical classroom. Entering meetings other than those you are explicitly invited to by the coordinator (teacher, principal, etc.) is strictly prohibited. Trying to circumvent the security of a meeting, “hijacking” a presentation or displaying any objectionable content during a meeting is a direct violation of this policy and subject to the disciplinary actions contained within. Recording of video/audio conferences is also prohibited.
  • File Transfer/Submission – The transmittal of files may be required at times for teachers to provide and students to submit work. The willful transfer of objectionable material, malicious content or any other such transmissions is a violation of this policy.
  • ·Learning Platforms – The use of learning platforms such as ThinkCentral, Learn360, Mathletics, Microsoft 365, Google Classroom, and others is for the sole purpose of supporting and furthering the education of students. Any use of these platforms for any other reason may be considered a violation of this policy.
  • Any use or misuse of the technology provided for distance learning that interferes with the education of students or the operations of the school/academy is a violation of this policy.
  • Please check with the School Principal for the Distance Learning Policy at your school.
  • Please Note: These guidelines, policies and protocols are subject to change as information is received from the CDC and city and state health agencies.
  • Please Note: The Office of the Superintendent ~Catholic School Support Services reserves the right to implement more restrictive safety and health protocols than the mandatory NYC or NYS DOHMH protocols.

  • Please note: These guidelines are subject to change as the pandemic continues to evolve.
