St. Pius X School Bulletin
A Letter from the Principal
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thank you, thank you for your generosity to the Chromebook fundraiser! We are extending the date to November 30th so all of the quarantined classes can participate if they wish to do so.
If you would like to help in other ways, we do have one other need. We are running short of Lysol/Clorox wipes. They aren’t available through our Cares Act vendors and, as you know, they are limiting the number you can purchase in the stores. If you are well stocked at home and can donate one, we would greatly appreciate it. We use them to wipe down desks and chairs in between classes.
As the COVID numbers rise, and the holiday travels approach, you will no doubt continue to see classes quarantine from time to time. Unfortunately, we have to quarantine the entire grade level in grades 5th-8th due to classes mixing. In most cases grades PK-4th will only have to quarantine by homeroom. To date, the positive cases that have occurred in our school community have come from outside activities, or from spread through a family member. In other words, we are not aware of any students contracting COVID while at school, which indicates that the safety precautions we have in place at school are working.
To help limit quarantines, it is important to keep your children home when a family member is waiting for test results. It is also highly recommended that you keep your children home if a family member is showing COVID symptoms, but has not yet tested. In addition, we ask that you take a conservative approach in sending your child to school if you have any reason to suspect that you may have been exposed due to family get togethers, travel, etc.
All Things in Christ,
