COVID-19 Safety and Precautions

2021-2022 COVID-19 Safety and Precautions

“I know God has a plan. I pray for direction to follow it, patience to wait on it, and knowledge to know when it comes.” Proverbs 2:6

Catholic Community Schools has developed a comprehensive COVID-19 safety and precautions plan for the 2021-22 school year that prioritizes the health and mental wellbeing of our students, staff, and faculty.  This plan comes from a place of deep care and concern, with a focus on adhering to Minnesota Department of Education guidelines and coordination with local public health authorities.

Teaching & Learning

Catholic Community Schools will offer distance learning for all students who are on medical quarantine.  Distance learning is not an option this year for students who are not required to quarantine, however. Our main goal is to maintain in-person learning in our schools as much as possible.


At this time, masks are recommended but not required.

Cleaning and Disinfecting

Enhanced cleaning protocols have been established to disinfect the school daily. Students and staff will be encouraged to wash or sanitize hands regularly.

Health Screening

All students, staff, and faculty are asked to do self-screenings to monitor their health before coming to school each day.  Please refer to the CCS COVID-19 Symptoms Decision Tree to determine whether or not it is okay to come to school each day.

Large Gatherings & Mass

School masses will follow the protocols in place by each parish. All athletic sporting events must adhere to state and local guidelines.

Visitors & Volunteers

Visitors and volunteers may be limited throughout the year.  Please check with the school administration before visiting to make sure there are no restrictions in place.

Symptom Decision Tree

Please follow the Catholic Community Schools COVID-19 Symptoms Decision Tree to determine if it is okay to send your child to school.
