OLL COVID-19 Updates

We hold a strong core belief that we learn better together in community, guided by the first priority of health and safety for our school community. 

This school year we are operating with full-time, in-person instruction for our entire student body from preschool through 8th grade. We are in close contact with the Archdiocese of Seattle Office for Catholic Schools leadership and closely following information from public health authorities including the CDC, DOH, and Public Health - Seattle & King County. Any health-related updates will be provided on this site.

Stay Home If Sick: We all need to do our part to keep our OLL community safe and healthy. Students, families and staff should monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and stay home when sick

OLL COVID FAQ
 
Where can I find the school's COVID protocols and guidelines? 
For more detailed information, please refer to the OLL COVID Plan. This has the school's most up-to-date and comprehensive information. 
 
Can my child go to school? 
Students, families and staff should monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and stay home when sick. Do you have a question about a possible exposure or if OK for your child to go to school? See this public health flow chart for guidance of whether OK to attend school.
 
When can my child return to school? 
We require a negative COVID test after a child has been out with COVID symptoms or quarantined. 
 
How do I submit test results?
Please email results to [email protected]. When sending in COVID-19 test results, please be sure the student's name and the date the test was administered and completed are clearly showing in screenshots if submitting via email.
 
Do unvaccinated students need to quarantine or be tested after international or domestic travel? 
Per public health guidance, we are following the CDC recommendations for travel. Students who are not fully vaccinated traveling internationally or out-of-state will need to follow these protocols after returning to Washington: 
  • Remain in quarantine away from school for 5 days from the return date to the U.S./Washington
  • Get tested for COVID-19 3-5 days after return and communicate the results via email to [email protected]
  • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms
 
Do vaccinated students need to quarantine or be tested after international or domestic travel?
We are currently asking families to be thoughtful in their return to school plans after international or out-of-state travel, or travel with a higher risk of exposure. Vaccinated students traveling internationally do not need to quarantine, but should get tested 3-5 days after travel. All students who travel should self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if they develop symptoms.
