All Saints is excited for the start of the 2021-2022 school year with K-8 students beginning on Monday, August 23 and our Pre-Kindergarten students joining us on Monday, August 30. Below is a link to our Reopening Plan that will serve as a baseline, allowing us to increase or decrease the level of mitigation strategies necessary in response to key metrics.
Please note that the Virginia State Public Health Commissioner issued an Order of Public Health Emergency on Thursday, August 12, 2021, applicable to all K-12 public and private schools in the state. For this reason, the Reopening Plan for the 2021-2022 academic year at All Saints Catholic School has been revised to include the following:
Face Masks – In accordance with the State Public Health Commissioner’s Order, effective August 12, 2021, all individuals aged two and older are required to wear masks when indoors at All Saints Catholic School, as recommended and described by the CDC. The indoor mask requirement applies to all students, employees and visitors, regardless of vaccination status. Exceptions to the Order include: Individuals who are eating or drinking; exercising; or playing a musical instrument (e.g. wind or brass instrument) so long as at least six feet of physical distance can be maintained from other persons.
The mask requirement shall remain in effect until the CDC guidelines for K-12 schools change, unless the Order is sooner amended or rescinded.
