COVID-19 Update for
2021-2022 School Year
(subject to change)

As the 2020-2021 school year ended, planning for the 2021-2022 will begin. The Archdiocese of Newark and Saint Aloysius
Elementary Academy is working collaboratively to return to some normalcy, while maintaining a healthy environment. Please
see the following updates for the 2021-2022 school year:

• There will be no virtual learning option offered to students. All registered students at Saint Aloysius Elementary
Academy will be expected to attend face-to-face instruction. Feel free to contact me with any concerns.

• At the present time masks will be mandated during the instructional day. Families will be asked to provide the mask
for each student.

• Regular temperature checks at student drop-off will continue until further notice and throughout the instructional day.

• Visitors and volunteers will be limited to those necessary to assist in the operation of the school. (At the request of
teachers or administration)

• Masks will be required for all visitors, vendors, and volunteers.

• Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting practices will continue. St. Aloysius Elementary Academy will continue to use air
purifiers in the classrooms to assist for proper ventilation.

• Frequent hand washing and sanitizing will continue.

• The “If sick, stay home” policy will continue. All faculty, staff, and students will be expected to stay home if sick.
Students must be fever free and symptom free for 24 hours prior to returning to school, without fever reducing
medication. Students will be sent home from school if showing symptoms of illness and a timely pick-up is required.

• CDC Guidelines regarding required isolation when positive for Corona Virus as well as CDC protocols for quarantine
close contacts will continue to be followed.

• Athletic seasons for all grade levels will resume following all CDC requirements.

• Field trips will resume.

Please email Mr. Rivera, jrivera@stalselem.org with any questions or concerns regarding our plans. Please remember that this
is all subject to change.
