Preparedness & Planning

 
Please be aware of the latest steps we are taking to better prepare Julie Billiart Schools students, faculty and staff for the potential community transmission of COVID-19. The safety of our students, faculty, and staff is always our topmost concern.
  • School will be closed for three weeks beginning Monday, March 16.
  • We are limiting community access to all school buildings. Gatherings and and meetings with outside visitors will be held remotely or off campus.
  • We are investing in periodic deep, professional cleanings of both campuses, which includes common areas, classrooms, bathrooms, and other areas.
  • All Julie Billiart Schools students are now required to wash their hands throughout the day, specifically prior to having their morning snack, before lunch, and if they have touched their nose or mouth.
  • We are limiting any school meetings, events, and assemblies to smaller groups. 
  • Soap and hand towel supplies are checked frequently by the JB maintenance staff. Hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes are available in all classrooms, offices and community areas.
  • We are regularly cleaning student desks and tables throughout the day and asking faculty and students to disinfect shared surfaces after each use.
  • All events at Julie Billiart Schools have been postponed until further notice. 

At the end of the mandatory closing, please keep your child home if:

  • Your child is feeling ill. Please keep your child home from school and communicate the nature of the illness to Julie Billiart Schools administration. Click here for information on symptoms, prevention, and treatment from the CDC.
  • You, your child, or your family members contract COVID-19. If anyone in your household requires COVID-19 testing or is confirmed to have the virus, alert Julie Billiart Schools administration immediately. 
  • You or your child have recently traveled to an area identified as a “community spread of coronavirus”. In accordance with CDC guidelines, if a student, faculty or staff member travels to an area identified as a “community spread of coronavirus,” they may not return to school until it is safe to do so as determined by CDC guidelines.
