Health Update April 7, 2021
The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are top priorities, and we are monitoring CDC and Department of Education guidelines to determine the best course of action for all school-related activities. The fourth quarter of the year is well underway, and to date, we still have no evidence of student-to-student or teacher-to-student transmission of the coronavirus.
We are continuing with full-time on-campus instruction and activities at both the Lewiston and Auburn Campuses. Clubs are engaged in their activities and spring middle and high school teams are preparing for their seasons.
St. Dom's is conducting business as usual with necessary modifications. St. Dom's students, faculty, and staff are making this possible because of their diligence in following health protocols.
Daily Health Assessment
Each morning by 7:15 am, a parent or guardian of all Pre-K through 12th-grade students MUST complete a self-check of their child's symptoms prior to boarding a bus or shuttle or entering the Lewiston or Auburn school building. The screening can be completed by the link below.
One form must be completed for each child. Each child's ID Number must be entered in the form for tracking purposes.
Finding your Child's St. Dom’s ID Number
Step 1: Log in to the FACTS Family Portal.
Step 2: On the left side menu, select "Family".
Step 3: Select your child’s name in the center of the screen.
The ID Number you need to enter can be found under your child’s “Contact Info”.
Any student who cannot attend as a result of presenting symptoms must call the main office to report the absence. Lewiston Campus 207-783-9323 or Auburn Campus 207-786-2911. This procedure also applies to all faculty and staff.
Students who present with symptoms after arriving at school will be assessed by the school nurse. The guidelines provided by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) will be used to determine if a student will be sent home.
Students are required to wear a mask/face covering that covers their nose and mouth while in the school building. Masks/face coverings must also be worn by all students riding the bus or shuttle. Face shields may be an alternative for those students with documented medical, behavioral challenges who are unable to wear masks/face coverings. Face shields worn in place of a face covering must extend below the chin and back to the ears.
Students must maintain 6 feet of distance from others to the extent possible. Arrows on the floor provide proper traffic flow. Maintaining 3 feet of distance is acceptable between and among students when combined with the other measures outlined in the list of safety requirements. 6 feet of physical distancing is required for students while eating breakfast, snack, and/or lunch, as students will be unable to wear masks during these time.
All students and staff in a school will receive training in proper hand hygiene during school orientation. All students and staff must wash hands or use sanitizing gel upon entering the school, entering classrooms, before and after eating, before and after donning or removing a face mask, after using the restroom, before and after use of playgrounds and shared equipment, and upon entering and exiting a school bus or shuttle.
