Today, St. Louis County Department of Public Health rescinded its health order requiring masks and social distancing. These changes are in response to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s interim public health recommendations for fully vaccinated individuals, which were released Thursday, May 13.
The St. Louis County Department of Health is strongly recommending that schools and daycares continue to have both students and staff continue wearing masks, because of the susceptibility of those who are not vaccinated. Lindbergh Schools will follow this recommendation, and we will continue enforcing the COVID-19 mitigation strategies outlined in our Green Light Plan through the end of this school year, to protect the health and safety of unvaccinated individuals in our school community.
Our district’s lead nurse and administrative team are reviewing the county’s updated guidance in detail and will communicate again with staff and students as soon as possible regarding summer programming. In June, the district’s School Reopening Task Force will reconvene to review the most up-to-date information and recommendations, and develop a plan for next school year. That plan will be shared with staff and families in July.
Thank you for your continued support this school year, and please look for additional updates soon.
