PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
Covid-19 Update

As our state begins to move into phase 3 of the pandemic, we would like to thank all the St. George families for their understanding during the school year regarding the procedures pertaining to absences due to illness. We understand that change is often difficult, and we appreciate everyone for their diligence in helping us ensure children attending school are healthy and symptom free.

Including students, faculty, and staff, we have only had five positive COVID-19 cases at St. George School over the past 3 weeks. This data is definite proof that the precautions we have in place at school, in combination with the parents following the guidelines, are effective. As a result, we feel we can safely transition back to a 24-hour, symptom free without medication return to school policy. A doctor’s note is still required prior to returning to school. Please remember to upload all doctor’s notes and excuses on the school website: https://www.st-georgeschool.com/resources/doctor-note.cfm

As we move forward into the last few months of the school year, we will continue to update you as any changes are made. 

Thank you all for being so understanding during these trying times.

Nurse Meg and Nurse Michelle
