OLL COVID-19 Updates

 

We are committed to continuing the OLL tradition of excellence in Catholic education that began in 1949, and guided by the first priority of health and safety for our school community. We also hold a strong core belief that we learn better together in community.

 

This school year we are operating through 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. Any health-related updates will be provided on this site.

 

For any COVID-related questions, please email: covid@ollseattle.org. 
 
 
  • Submitting Test Results: 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.
  • Travel Quarantine Requirements: Please review the OLL COVID Plan document to ensure your child follows the travel requirements listed if traveling out-of-state or internationally. For international travel, the CDC states that "International travel poses additional risks, and even fully vaccinated travelers might be at increased risk for getting and possibly spreading some COVID-19 variants." Please note that per Archdiocese guidance, students (regardless of vaccination status) will need to follow these protocols after returning from international travel: 
    • Remain in quarantine away from school for 7 days from the return date to the U.S. 
    • Get tested for COVID-19 3-5 days after return and communicate the results via email to covid@ollseattle.org.
    • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms.
 
  • UPDATED FLOW CHART: 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. 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.
 
June 2021: We are pleased that we will be able to return to many of our usual school operations and procedures when we begin school in September 2021. As always, we will need to continue to follow the most current Archdiocese protocols and state Department of Health (DOH) public health guidelines issued for 2021-2022, including the required, mandatory mitigation measures (such as face coverings, ventilation, cleaning/disinfecting, and more), and guidance from Public Health - Seattle & King County.
