Updated Protocols for Fully Vaccinated Staff, Faculty and Students
by: Nancy L. Spencer, Head of School
With the release and roll-out of COVID-19 vaccinations, Shorecrest will follow the CDC guidelines regarding quarantining when fully vaccinated. All staff, faculty and students who are fully vaccinated (two weeks after their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, or two weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson's Janssen COVID-19 vaccine) will NOT need to be quarantined after exposure to COVID-19 if they meet the criteria of being a close contact unless they are exhibiting symptoms.
Even with vaccinations, we will continue the mitigation processes that have been so crucial to Shorecrest's success in avoiding the risk of transmission of COVID-19 on the School’s campus. Everyone will still need to monitor symptoms daily, wear a mask when in shared spaces with others, practice social distancing and use proper hand hygiene. Faculty/staff will still complete a daily attestation form to account for their wellness. The safety of the School community depends upon all persons doing their part to ensure safety not just for themselves, but for the entire community.
If you have been vaccinated please send Nurse Conroy a copy of your documentation reflecting your dates of vaccination. This will be required to be deemed not a "close contact" during our contact tracing efforts.
