Dear St. John the Baptist Families,
In the following guidance from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health Order, St. John the Baptist school seeks to reopen our schools to grade transitional kindergarten through 2nd grade. We plan to lower the risk of contagion from Covid-19, while promoting the development of our students academically, emotionally, socially, and most importantly, spiritually. In partnership with our parents, we know that we can safely provide on-campus instruction.
The Department of Catholic Schools and the Department of Public Health Order have outlined guidelines and procedures so that we can provide a safe environment for our students. We are currently planning to apply for the waiver to open for in-person learning for grades transitional kindergarten through second grade.
We believe the benefits of in-person school to support the social, emotional, physical, spiritual and academic development of our students. We also understand the fluidity of our situation and will continue to monitor and make necessary adjustments for the safety and well-being of our St. John the Baptist School community. Since parents are the primary educators of their children, we understand that some families will want their children to continue with remote learning.
Below, we have outlined the measures and precautions we are planning to ensure we can provide a safe environment for students, staff, and families to reduce the potential spread of the virus. ²
Sr. Rosario Mediavilla, Principal
