OLSH is carefully monitoring the progression of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus, COVID-19, and are following recommendations from the Diocese of Pittsburgh, the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as we develop policies and guidelines related to this public health situation. School leadership participated in a meeting with representatives from the Allegheny Intermediate Unit, the Allegheny Health Department and other local agencies on March 5, 2020 that included an update on the situation and specific recommendations and precautions for schools.
Per CDC and Allegheny Health Department recommendations, the most critical action that can be taken is to use disciplined hygiene practices. Recommendations include:
We ask our families to help us by reinforcing these health practices at home.
To protect our students, faculty, and staff, we will be taking the following precautionary measures:
Additionally, we ask that families inform the school main office as soon as possible if your student or any family or other member of your household has traveled or plans to travel to or from a CDC Level 3 or CDC Level 2 area (updated regularly by the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html) or will have contact with an individual who has traveled to or from a CDC Level 3 or CDC Level 2 area. Returning travelers or those with risk of exposure may be asked to remain out of school for 14 days. If, at the end of this 14-day period, these individuals have not experienced any symptoms, the student may return to school. If these individuals have experienced symptoms, parents will need to notify the school and medical clearance will be needed before the student may return.
