SJB School Phases
Phase Two: October 19th – December 22nd
Our team met to assess the daily learning environment and plan as well as the requirements around social distancing, mask wearing, and daily symptom checks. We found that there would be no significant changes from our Phase One plan. Please review the document to learn more.
Phase One: September 8th – October 16th
Over the summer, our reopening committee worked hard to develop a plan to begin school in-person on Tuesday, September 8th. We consulted with and used feedback from medical professionals, educators from a variety of private and public schools, the Minnesota Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, St. John’s staff, and St. John’s families to develop these plans. Our plan aimed to keep our staff, students, and families safe and healthy while providing them with a good educational experience.
Our Phase One plan took us through mid-October when we re-evaluated and made any needed adjustments. An important part of this plan is your cooperation in assisting us to keep everyone safe, healthy, and in school.
Distance Learning Option
We are offering an online option for those families who are living with a family member vulnerable to COVID-19, such as older family members or immunocompromised family members. Teachers and families have been given the following guidelines if they chose the distance learning option: St John’s Distance Learning Phase 1
Please note that as we determine other protocols and procedures, the information will be provided to all families via email and on our website.
