A reminder for students who use the Out-of-Town Bus: Please note, when there is a two-hour delay of school, the Out-of-Bristol buses start their run on a 90-minute delay schedule giving them a little extra time to get everyone safely to St. Paul.

COVID-19 Update

The health and well-being of students, faculty, staff and visitors on our campus is of primary importance. With the start of school, it’s inevitable that our school community has experienced some positive cases of COVID-19. Recent guidance from the Bristol-Burlington Health District (BBHD) may be helpful in making personal decisions contributing to everyone’s good health:

  • If you test POSITIVE for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status or symptoms isolate at home for at least five full days. Day 1 is the day after the onset of symptoms or a positive test, whichever comes first. You can return to school on Day 6 although if still testing positive or experiencing mild symptoms you are required to wear a mask indoors until Day 10.
  • If you have mild symptoms, regardless of vaccination status with NO fever (> 100 F) and with NO household member or close contact with COVID-19, it is recommended that you test every day you are symptomatic. If you test negative, you can attend school although are encouraged to wear a mask.
  • If you have mild symptoms, regardless of vaccination status and had a close contact or live with someone COVID-19 positive, stay home until symptoms resolve. If you have a fever, you must be fever free for 24 hours (without use of fever reducing medication) before returning to school. Again, we recommend testing every day while symptomatic.
  • If you had a close contact or live with someone COVID-19 positive, regardless of vaccination status, with NO symptoms, you may attend school as long as not symptomatic. We recommend you separate from the positive person, test every day and wear a mask in school through five days after exposure.

COVID-19 testing kits are available for FREE in the health room. Any COVID-19 concerns or questions should be directed to Ann Marie Pahl, school health aide: apahl@spchs.com or my attention cdupont@spchs.com.
