Strategies to Decrease Impact of COVID in Our Schools

COVID has elevated the awareness of the importance of infection prevention and control across our campuses. The basics of infection prevention include:

  • Staying home (not coming to school or work) when you are ill (and seeking medical attention when necessary)

  • Cleaning and disinfecting classrooms, materials, and surfaces

  • Providing good ventilation and air flow

  • Washing hands and using good cough etiquette (using hand sanitizer if water is not available and covering your cough)

  • Vaccination against vaccine preventable illnesses

For Students:

Families should follow the campus guidelines for reporting students absences. In general, students should not attend school when ill. Families should consult with medical professionals when a student is ill. 

To assist families in determining appropriate measures to address the spread of COVID-19, we encourage families to use the CDC’s Quarantine and Isolation Calculator.

Masks Policy

Masks are not required for students, employees and/or guests at our Xavier campuses.

Positive COVID Cases in Our Schools

System and school leaders will closely monitor student and staff absences at our campuses. 

Vaccinations

We encourage all families to talk with their primary care provider about vaccinations.  In addition, we encourage families to review the USCCB’s Moral Considerations Regarding the New COVID-19 Vaccines.

For vaccination locations, please visit www.vaccines.gov.

Thank you for your cooperation, understanding, and flexibility in compliance with these protocols as well as for your confidence and ongoing support of the Xavier System.
