Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of St. Louis are making plans for returning to in-person learning. Saint Mary Magdalen Catholic School will be returning on August 20 and prioritizing the health of the children.
Saint Mary Magdalen has been working diligently over the summer to clean and disinfect all areas of the school for the safe return of the children. A Coronavirus operations/safety plan handbook has been developed outlining all of the precautions that will be set in place. Mrs. Wiseman, principal of Saint Mary Magdalen, teachers and parents from the medical field were in collaboration to insure the safety of the children.
Before the start of the school day children and staff will complete a health screening and will have their temperatures taken before entering the building. The classrooms have been set up for social distancing, masks will be worn and grades will be staying with their cohorts. The school building will be constantly disinfected throughout the day and non-essential people will not be allowed to enter the building.
Knowing children are starved to be in a community and have interaction with others, Saint Mary Magdalen feels face to face education is the best way to continue to bring the mission of our church and our school to our families while keeping healthy and safe. We are excited to bring the students back to Saint Mary Magdalen knowing their safety and health are our number one priority.
