Monitoring Student Wellness
St. Bernard Parish Public School System’s number one priority is maintaining the health and well-being of our students and staff. As such, St. Bernard Parish Schools will be continueing to follow all CDC and Department of Health guidelines for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year.
The protective measures outlined below are intended for students while on school campuses.
All adults and students (3rd grade and up) must wear face coverings. Face coverings must be worn in all areas of the school including classrooms. Most importantly, face coverings should be worn during arrival, dismissal, and any other transition within the school building. Individuals with severe breathing difficulties, as documented by a doctor’s note, may be excused from wearing face covering and instead may be required to wear a shield.
Keep Sick Students Home
It is critical that parents keep children home when they are sick. If the child has taken any fever-reducing medications in the last 24 hours or is demonstrating any symptoms of a respiratory illness, such as shortness of breath or a cough, the student should remain home.
All students’, employees’, and visitors’ temperatures will be taken upon arriving on campus. If a temperature is registered at or above 100.4°F, or an individual exhibits other signs of illness, he/she will be removed from the classroom setting and isolated until he/she can be picked up by a parent or guardian.
The safety of our staff and students remains the district’s primary concern. Therefore, visitors will be limited. Visitors will be required to wear a face mask upon arrival, and temperatures will be taken.
