We are dedicated to doing our very best in the effort of keeping our school as safe as possible during the COVID-19 Pandemic. In our commitment to keeping all of our Keiki healthy we have created Mary, Star of the Sea Return to School Decision Tree. We continue to ask that if your child is not feeling well to have them stay home, for their own comfort as well as for the overall safety of the MSOS students and faculty. However in the event that your child should become ill during the school day and are sent to the health room Mary, Star of the Sea will follow the protocol outlined in the attachment MSOS Return to School Decision Tree.
Additionally in keeping your child’s health a top priority, don’t forget your flu shot! The CDC recommends getting a flu shot early in the season.
According to the CDC, getting the flu shot each year is the best way to help protect you and your family against the flu. Receiving a flu vaccine has been shown to reduce the risk of flu-related doctor visits and hospitalizations. Contact your child’s pediatrician if you have specific questions and/ or want to schedule your child’s flu shot. Also for your convenience many local pharmacies are currently offering the flu shot such as many Longs/CVS & Walgreen locations. (cost is covered by most health insurances) Please see attached. (CDC Flu guide for parents)
Check Your Child’s Mask!
Please note that if your child’s mask has holes, vents or valves they must not use that mask when attending School. All masks worn by MSOS faculty students and parent volunteers must be a tightly woven face covering that covers both mouth and nose with NO vents, valves, or holes when on MSOS Campus.
Calling All Parent Volunteers!
We are so thankful and blessed for all of our MSOS volunteers, and there are still MSOS Parent/Guardian Volunteer opportunities for after school cleaning! If you are interested in volunteering to clean your child’s class after school please email the health office at [email protected] at your earliest convenience. We ask that all Cleaning Volunteers arrive promptly at the close of the school day and appreciate all your continued support!
