We will use this space to provide the T-SJ community with updates on COVID-19 data and for making notifications regarding new cases. Please know that we are in regular communication with the Washington County Health Department and use their guidance to help us make decisions. As a reminder, the Illinois Department of Public Health defines "close contact" as someone who is within 6 feet of you for 15 cumulative minutes. This information will always be used when administration conducts contact tracing after the confirmation of a positive case. This page will be updated regularly as data changes or when additional notifications are needed.
Here is the data that pertains to individuals affiliated with T-SJ:
TOTAL ACTIVE CONFIRMED POSITIVE TESTS: 1
TOTAL STAFF/STUDENTS CURRENTLY ON QUARANTINE ORDERS: 18
(This number includes individuals affiliated with TSJ who are on quarantine orders for both school-related and non-school related COVID-19 contact. It does not include those who are quarantined after testing positive.)
TOTAL NUMBER OF CONFIRMED POSITIVE TESTS SINCE AUGUST 12: 4
Our overall goal is to maintain in-person learning for five days per week as long as it is safe to do so. We are committed to keeping our families and staff safe. We are working closely with the Washington Country Health Department, closely monitoring our data, and making decisions that focus on everyone's safety.
If you have any questions regarding COVID-19 issues here at school, please do not hesitate to contact us.
