Coronavirus Information

2021-22 School Year COVID-19 Protocols

Face Masks Required  

Due to the increase in the Delta variant, Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit will begin an indoor mask mandate on Monday, August 2. All students, regardless of vaccine status, will be required to wear a face mask when inside the school building. The only exception will be when eating lunch. The school continues to ask parents to get their children vaccinated as that is the most effective way to stop the spread of this virus. If your student has been vaccinated and you have not yet submitted a copy of the student's vaccine card, please email a photo of the vaccination card to clinic@cristoreyatlanta.org.   

 

If Your Student is Sick

If your student is sick, keep your student home from school and report the student's absence to the school by 7:30 am by emailing esamaniego@cristoreyatlanta.org or calling 404-637-2800. Have your student tested if your student is showing symptoms of COVID-19. If your student tests positive for COVID-19, inform the school immediately at clinic@cristoreyatlanta.org.

 

COVID Protocol - Exposure to COVID-19

If your student has been in close proximity to a student who tests positive, you will be contacted by the school with the following instructions: 

  • If your child is unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, your child needs to be tested for COVID-19 and report the results to the school clinic at clinic@cristoreyatlanta.org immediately. If the test is negative, your student should quarantine at home for 10 days and can return to school after that time if your child has no symptoms of COVID-19. If your child tests positive, your child must quarantine at home for 14 days before returning to school.   
  • If your child is fully vaccinated and your child has no symptoms, your child does not need to quarantine at home following an exposure and can continue to attend school in person and participate in other activities. The CDC recommends that your child still be tested. The test results should be sent to the school clinic at clinic@cristoreyatlanta.org. Your child should continue to wear a mask in school and also wear a mask in other indoor settings for 14 days or until the child receives a negative test result. 

If your child is in quarantine, all the student’s schoolwork will be posted in Schoology. Teachers will work with your student to make up any missed quizzes, tests, or assignments.

 

If you do not hear from the school, then your child has not been exposed. Your child can continue to attend school and does not need to be tested.

  

Notify the Clinic if Your Student Has Received the COVID Vaccine

All students participating in sports, clubs, retreats, and other activities must be fully vaccinated. In addition, some corporate partners are requiring that their student workers are vaccinated. Send your student's vaccine information to the clinic today. Please email clinic@cristoreyatlanta.org.

Many of our supporters have asked how they can help Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis.  The most immediate need is for our school families who are struggling.  Kindly consider making a gift to the newly established Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit Family Fund so that we may help school families through this crisis.  Providing families with temporary financial relief to meet their rent, grocery, and utility bills will help ensure that our students remain committed to their studies and will provide much-needed security in these unstable times.
