COVID-19 Information


 

Reporting positive cases

Please contact our school nurse, Susan Geoppinger, directly at [email protected] or call 513-741-2302 and leave a message, if your son has tested positive for COVID-19.

2021-22 School Year

La Salle High School will follow current health department guidelines in regard to COVID-19 for the 2021-22 school year. We will update our policy and guidance based on changes made by local officials.

Vaccinations are strongly encouraged but not mandatory. Vaccinations can be received at Walgreens, CVS, Mercy Health, Kroger and other sites throughout the city. Most retailers offer walk-in appointments. Please visit Test and Protect Cincinnati to find a site near you.

La Salle will generally not require masks for on-campus and school-sponsored events; however, when social distancing is not possible, students may be required to wear a mask for certain events (for example: all-school masses and all-school assemblies).  Parents/guardians should discuss their personal mask-wearing expectations with their son(s).

La Salle will continue to offer sanitization stations throughout our building, provide increased sanitization by our maintenance staff and maintain classroom sanitization supplies.

Students should stay home when ill.

Based upon current guidance from Hamilton County Public Health:

  • Fully vaccinated individuals will not need to quarantine if exposed to COVID-19 unless symptoms are present. Vaccinated individuals who test positive will need to quarantine and their close contacts will also be required to quarantine.
  • Unvaccinated, unmasked individuals may need to quarantine if exposed to COVID-19. Since masks are not required, classroom quarantines for close contacts would take effect again - individuals within 6ft for 15 minutes of exposure over 48 hours are considered close contacts.

For students missing school due to COVID-19 or a quarantine period, the regular sick policy for attendance will be followed. We are not offering online class options this school year.

If your son is vaccinated please forward a photo of his vaccination record to the nurse at [email protected] so it can be documented in his file.

Exposure & Quarantine Guidelines

We are following the Ohio Department of Health guidance for quarantine after exposure in K-12 classroom settings. Click here to review the flowchart.

Updated guidance: 2/2/22

New guidance from the Ohio Department of Health and the Hamilton County Public Health Department brings new changes to our COVID-19 policy yet again. Under the new guidance, all positive cases are still to be reported to school and in turn, we will report them to the HCPH.

Each case will be traced at school and a student’s individual teachers (whose classes are affected by the case) will be notified by the nurse. In turn, those teachers will notify the students in a particular bell, that a case of COVID-19 was reported in their class.

If a student has a home or social exposure, they will follow the Mask to Stay/Test to Play policy.

If your son knows he was exposed through school or a school-related activity, please call the nurse for instruction on the Mask to Stay/Test to Play Policy.  You can learn more online at: https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/static/responsible/schools/k-12-schools-quarantine-alternative.pdf

The new guidance can be found online at: https://odh.ohio.gov/static/docs/memo-contact-tracing-final-012622.pdf

Since we are not tracing individuals, please remember it is very important to keep your son home if he is not feeling well, monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and get him tested. This is especially important if he is on a team or involved in an extracurricular club. Find more information about symptoms online at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html

Any student always has the option of wearing a mask anytime on any day. We encourage the use of hand sanitizer, which is available in all classrooms, in the hallway and in restrooms.
