Covid -19 Policies and Procedures

As cities begin to ease their restrictions and more and more people begin to get vaccinated, we understand that there may be questions as to whether or not we will change our Covid-19 policies and procedures at St. Patrick School.

In accordance with the Diocese of Kansas City St. Joseph, we will continue the Covid-19 polices and procedures that have been in place this school year. This means, our students will continue to wear masks appropriately throughout the day when working in close proximity to others. It also means, we will continue to socially distance in the classroom and lunchroom and will follow the same health procedures listed below.

These procedures have kept us in school and no one wants to risk that at this point in the year! We appreciate your support with this as we finish up this interesting school year.

  • My child has traveled somewhere currently on the travel ban list in the last 10 days.

  • I have given my child fever reducers, cold medicine, or other over the counter meds to reduce symptoms of illness within the last 48 hours.
