2022-23 Wellness Policies Related To COVID-19 And Other Viral Respiratory Diseases
Ensuring a safe learning environment for our community
Updated October 27, 2022
Updates as of October 27, 2022
The Mead School's interpretation of current health guidance and the school's related policies have a singular goal - to do all that we possibly can to return our school experience to pre-pandemic normalcy, while ensuring utmost safety. Please bear this in mind as you review what follows, and please know that we hope and even anticipate that all this may change at any point during the year.
We will implement a significant change in communication. Starting on October 27th, we will announce the presence of serious respiratory infections (i.e. Covid, Flu, RSV) as they arise to the whole Pre-K-Grade 8 community, rather than just the cohort most exposed, so that we honor those members of the community who feel they need to know for personal or health reasons.
The Mead School continues to STRONGLY encourage you to remain up to date on vaccines and boosters for Covid and Flu, as soon as possible. The effectiveness of any other respiratory disease prevention strategy in schools, child care programs, and youth camps is likely to be dependent on the underlying level of COVID-19 and influenza vaccination in staff and students.
**Please note that “Up to date” means you have received all of the vaccinations/boosters for which you are eligible.
