Student Health - COVID Information




USJ Families,

Our first week of mask optional has been a good one! Thank you so much for your cooperation in helping us to navigate this transition. At this time we have four active cases of COVID-19 within the USJ community.

As with any change, we have found a few situations that need to be addressed. On both campuses, there are instances during which students are unable to maintain social distancing. This is particularly true for small group work. For this reason, we ask that you send a mask with your child each day. If there is an activity where distancing cannot be maintained, your child will be asked to wear a mask during the activity. 

As always, your support is vital in helping us to maintain the health and safety of our school. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter. 

Have a great weekend, and Go Bruins!!
