Important Health Update

A message from Head of School Rene Gavic:

As spring break approaches, we know the heightened awareness surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19) is cause for concern to many. As a school community, our primary concern is the safety of our entire community and the possible impact on our students, faculty and staff. We continue to proactively plan and prepare should a temporary closure need to take place. Please visit the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the CDC websites for the most up-to-date information.

As more of our families travel for spring break, we ask you to follow the CDC guidelines. The CDC strongly discourages travel to regions most susceptible to infection. If a student or other community member decides to travel to a country that has been identified with a warning or alert by the CDC (click here for the list), they will need to follow the protocols in place by the MDH and the CDC prior to returning to campus. We will follow these guidelines and support any family undergoing the 14-day quarantine. This is an important public health safety precaution to better ensure that our school environment remains healthy. In addition, if you have been exposed to anyone with COVID-19, CDC recommends a self-quarantine for 14 days. We will work in close partnership with any impacted family.

If your family is planning to travel to a country with a warning or alert, we need you to

  • contact Visitation School nurse JoAnne Geiser at 651-683-1708 or via email,
  • protect our students, staff, faculty and guests by following the CDC guidelines of a 14-day quarantine upon returning to the United States

As this situation continues to evolve, we will closely monitor guidance from the CDC and MDH. We will continue to rely on their recommendations and expertise to inform our decisions and we will communicate any changes that would affect school operations. Please keep all of these communities affected by the virus in your thoughts and prayers.
