- Recommendations from Oregon Health Authority
Per the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), students, faculty, staff, and visitors will be required to wear masks while indoors on campus. Masks are not required indoors while eating, drinking, practicing or competing in interscholastic athletics, performing in theatre, playing music that requires students to use their mouths, or delivering a speech to an audience.
During regular outdoor school activities (e.g. Flex and passing periods, PE classes, and lunch) where students may maintain six feet of distance, masks are optional. Masks will be required at certain outdoor events, including assemblies, large Masses, spectator events and gatherings of the general public on school grounds, especially when maintaining six feet of distance is difficult, per Governor Brown’s order of August 24, 2021.
- Students and adults masked indoors
- Enhanced ventilation systems and air exchanges exceeding CDC recommendations
- Outside eating spaces available
- Sanitation stations in all classrooms
- Classroom seating 3 feet apart
- Registered Nurse on campus
- Unvaccinated students tested regularly (2x/month) in Moyer Lobby
Vaccinated or unvaccinated people who test positive for COVID-19 are required to quarantine for 10 days after the onset of illness. Students who test positive will need to be symptom free for 24 hours prior to their return and provide a doctor's note clearing them to return to school. Unvaccinated people who are exposed within 3 feet of a person testing positive for COVID-19 are required by OHA to quarantine for 10 days. A 14 day quarantine is the safest option to prevent spread to others. Therefore people should monitor for COVID-19 symptoms for the full 14 days after exposure or positive result. Vaccinated people who are exposed are not required to quarantine unless they become symptomatic.
The CDC encourages anyone exposed to get a COVID test and monitor for symptoms. See Ready Schools, Safe Learners for more information on requirements from OHA/ODE.
According to the CDC, the most effective way to contain the spread of the virus is to have a vaccinated community. Fortunately, 100% of JHS staff and a high percentage of our students are fully-vaccinated, offering hope that we may avoid widespread quarantines this fall. Jesuit will be providing regular on-campus antigen testing for all unvaccinated students, as well as vaccinated students or staff who wish to be tested.
Families should monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and call a doctor if student is experiencing a fever of 100.4 or higher, dry cough, difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell. Additionally, students with any COVID-19 symptoms may not return to school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours without the aid of any relief medication. If a student or anyone in the household tests positive for COVID or has the symptoms above, the student should stay home and email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recommendations for parents as students prepare to go back to school from the Oregon Health Authority:
- Remember the fundamentals: Sleep, healthy nutrition, and exercise
- Re-establish morning and evening routines
- Create a visual aid/calendar at home
- Support school and local health authority policies and protocols
- Encourage students to advocate with teachers, administrators, etc.
- Ask your child how you can support them
The following is a general supply list designed to help freshman families prepare for high school. It covers most things students may need; teachers will tell students during the first week of school if there are additional supplies needed for individual classes.
- 2-3 binders (1.5” or 2” wide)
- Tabs for binders
- Loose-leaf paper
- Pencils & Pens
- TI-89 Calculator (with trig functions)
- Locker Shelving (most freshmen share a locker)
- Reusable and well-labelled water bottle
Remember to label everything; the amount donated each year from lost and found is significant. Often a labeled lost item will find its way back to the owner.
- Canvas Expectations
- Student Handbook
- Dress Code
- Schedule Changes
- Student Activities & Community Building
- Hot Lunch Program
- Counseling & Advising
- Message from Pope Francis
The attached list includes course and digital text fees. Registration fees cover most textbooks and supplies, but all students need a TI-89 calculator for their math/science classes. Each teacher will advise students of other required supplies during the first week of school.
In most classes, students will receive digital textbooks and/or course materials during the first week of classes. However, students are responsible for purchasing their own paper copies of specific texts for English classes, Analysis & Topography, Discrete Math, Linear Algebra, and AP Calculus Prep. Paper texts can be purchased online; some used copies may be available. Texts for English classes differ depending on individual teachers; students should check their schedules and the English paperback list to ensure they get the correct texts.
Canvas is a web-based learning management system. Students can access their Canvas courses either via the Canvas Student app on their iPads or the Canvas website on any device that has internet access, including iPads. Parents/guardians do not have access to Canvas.
- Weekly plans
- Contact information & office hours
- Other relevant resources or activities
- Check Canvas daily, especially if absent
- Contact teachers in advance if personal/family circumstances may affect completion of work
- Check in with teachers in person or via email when needed
If a student is quarantined, counselors will coordinate with teachers about expectations which may include live and/or asynchronous work.
Student course schedules are available in PowerSchool. See the Student Schedules letter for details, including info regarding Flex Periods in 2021-22. To keep classes balanced, students may not request specific teachers, prep or lunch periods.
Lunch assignments are dependent on which class a student has in period 4 on all days but Wednesday, when lunch connects with period 7. Depending on their classes, a student could have one lunch period on Monday/Tuesday/Thursday/Friday and a different one on Wednesday.
- Lunch 1: English, Fine Arts, Math, PE/Health
- Lunch 2: History, Science, Theology, World Languages
If you have a compelling need to change your schedule, email Mr. Powers as soon as possible before Registration on August 30. After Registration, any schedule change must be completed through your Vice Principal. Digital textbooks are not refundable once purchased, so think carefully before requesting a schedule change.
