Lindbergh Schools is continuing measures this school year to support our most important priority, which is protecting in-person learning for students.
Some of our most effective tools for supporting in-person learning have been the use of universal face coverings for staff and students, vaccination of staff and eligible students, and implementation of modified quarantine, which is a new guideline from St. Louis County Department of Health that allows students to continue attending school during their quarantine period, when certain conditions are met.
During the first two weeks of school alone, modified quarantine allowed 83 students in grades K-12 to continue attending school in person following in-school COVID-19 contact. Last year, these students would have been required to stay home. In addition, 85% of Lindbergh employees have self-reported that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Chief Human Resources Officer Dr. Brian McKenney presented a COVID-19 update to the Board of Education on Sept. 16, which can be viewed here. To learn more about modified quarantine and view current data, please visit the district's COVID-19 dashboard.
Our team has been working hard to make sure that full-time, in-person learning continues for all students in a safe, supportive and healthy environment districtwide. Ultimately, our goal is to return to a normal school environment as soon as possible, and we appreciate the continued support and partnership of our district students, families and staff.
