From the first day, SGGS has been committed to educating your child regardless of whether or not it is in the classroom or digitally. Though this time has been trying, our teachers and staff have remained vigilant, ensuring that our Saints still receive an exemplary education. Faith is the foundation of our lessons each day, and our students continue to thrive throughout their challenges.
Take a look at how we are still leading and still learning amidst the distance.
March 2022 UPDATE:
Effective today, March 1, 2022, signage associated with COVID-19 mitigation measures has been removed at all entrances to SGGS school buildings. Likewise, the taking of temperatures upon entering SGGS has been suspended. These measures have been taken under guidance received from the Office of Catholic Schools. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 illness/positivity rates and make decision based upon guidance received from appropriate state, diocesan, and/or health officials.
As a reminder and per Executive Order Two signed by Governor Youngkin, effective January 24, 2022, the following changes regarding Face Mask Policy for our Diocesan Catholic Schools remains in place.
Excerpt— “As of January 24, 2022, students will not be required to wear masks in our schools if parents decide they do not want their student to wear a mask. Unvaccinated school employees will be required to wear masks, except under limited circumstances. Please note: This change in policy does not apply to school buses. Students, bus drivers, and any passengers will be required to wear masks while riding the bus pursuant to the CDC Order made effective on February 1, 2021.”
The following guidance applies to SGGS at this time:
- We continue to encourage and fully support all adults and students who choose to wear masks while at our school-indoors. Again, the wearing or not wearing a mask indoors is an optional choice.
- Mitigation strategies previously used in our schools including handwashing, respiratory etiquette, proper ventilation, cleaning, disinfecting, and incorporating distancing when possible. We will continue to maintain 3ft. distance between students in all classroom/instructional areas with students assigned to individual desks or cafeteria/lunch tables.
- It is critical that faculty, staff, and students closely monitor their health and must stay at home when they are having any symptoms of infectious illness. Students or employees who are exhibiting symptoms or have a temperature over 100.4 degrees will be sent home and not be able to return until their symptoms have subsided, and they are temperature free without fever reducing medicines for at least 24 hours.
- Our school will still monitor exposure and positive cases. Contact tracing will be conducted, and quarantining based on current CDC/VDH recommendations for those exposed to and positive for COVID-19 will be followed. Only individuals directly exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 will be notified.
- Information for extracurricular sport activities, including mitigation measures as necessary, will be released once available to those students and parents involved in the specific sport activities.
See how we’re making it safe for you to return to school, Saints!
