Hello Falcon Family!
We had a great first full week of school! The highlight of the week was our all-school Mass with prayer families and music. It was a glorious day indeed.
Mask Survey: we currently have no intention of changing our mask policy. However, we value your opinion and having this data may assist us in the future. When our mask discussions began this summer, we decided our mask policy would likely be an all-or-nothing policy. Meaning, if we decide to require masks in the future, it would likely be for all grades and it would apply to both unvaccinated as well as vaccinated people. While that decision may also change, at this point, we would like your opinion on universal masking. The question is simple: do you prefer optional masking or required universal masking? Please use this Mask Survey to share your response. We welcome your comments at the bottom of the survey.
Isolation and Quarantine Protocols: in case you missed it in my previous emails, I want to share these protocols again. It is good for parents to be aware of the decisions they will have to make in the event of a positive test or close contact notification.

Dayton Children’s emergency department has seen a large increase in families bringing their child to get an order for a COVID-19 test. Per Dayton Children’s, this is not the best or most cost-effective place for that care, so they want to make it easy for families to choose the right place to receive that care. Please read this Dayton Children’s Instruction Card for more information.
