    Coronavirus Update

    Dear parents and families: The health and safety of students and staff in our school community are of the utmost importance. We are writing to provide you with an update on the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) health issue. At SJS we are proactively disinfecting all surfaces, bathrooms, hand rails, door knobs, toys, desks and chairs. Hand sanitizer is being used as students enter and/or exit the classrooms.

    The Archdiocese of Chicago is closely monitoring the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    Please note that all school staff have received the following recommended preventive actions, based on CDC guidance, to help protect your child(ren) and others from this virus and all illnesses:

    • Wash your hands regularly with warm or hot soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw in the trash.

    • Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work, or school, especially when someone is ill.

    • Stay home when you are sick. Stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. When at home, if possible, try to distance yourself from people who are sick.

    • Contact your health care provider immediately if anyone in your home experiences any of the following symptoms: severe cough; rapid noisy, painful, or other difficult breathing; and dehydration.

    • We ask that you notify our school if anyone in your home has any Coronavirus (COVID-19) or influenza symptoms. COVID-19 related student absences will be excused. We will work with affected students’ families in providing schoolwork and alternate education arrangements (e.g. e-learning) to ensure the continuity of your child’s education to the best of our ability. All principals and teachers are being asked to:

    • We are providing plenty of hand sanitizer, cleaning wipes and tissues for the classrooms
