Catholic Schools Week is Coming!
"Thank you for your patience as we move towards implementation 2022's new COVID-19 testing protocol for Vermont schools. Independent schools should plan to continue their current testing programs during the initial stages as the new program is set up in public schools. Similar to Test to Stay, school districts will be distribution points for the take-home antigen test kits, and we must manage those logistics before we can invite independent schools to participate."
I have followed up with the Agency of Education requesting an update; at the time of this publication, I have not received a response. We will continue to operate under our most recent COVID response guidelines, published January 1, 2022.

Strep Throat Alert
We learned of a case of strep throat this morning (upper school). Please be on the lookout for the following symptoms - which may be mild to severe:
Complaints of sore throat - it may hurt to swallow and there may be white patches
Tender glands in the neck
Fever - good indicator, but not always present - may have chills
General ill feeling - headache, nausea, loss of appetite
Doctors treat strep throat with antibiotics which should be taken as prescribed even if symptoms are gone after only a few days. Untreated, strep can lead to serious complications. BJAMS' policy is that your student must be on antibiotics for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
Please consult your family doctor with any questions or concerns you may have regarding strep throat.
If you haven't done so yet, please remember to register your student(s) for the month of January.
