All Saints School is committed to the safety and wellness of its community. Our administrative staff and school board have worked tirelessly with community healthcare consultants, church and Diocesan leadership, and local and national preschools to determine and implement the most thorough and safe policies and procedures to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 on campus. We sincerely appreciate your continued support and prayers over our Little Saints, staff, and school families.
We are closely monitoring guidelines and updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and please know we will adjust our practices as seen fit.
During these unprecedented times, the safety of our community and cleanliness of our facility is a responsibility we all must share. We are asking everyone to commit to keeping our community healthy and safe by embracing general COVID-19 safety measures. Failure to comply with our new procedures will result in disciplinary action and possible termination of services.
It is imperative that our school families and staff acknowledge and abide by protocols to ensure our people and our spaces remain safe. In your fall packet arriving by mail later this month, there will be an acknowledgment document, which families and staff are required to sign.

What if a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19 or is exposed to a positive case outside of school?
I have more than one child enrolled at All Saints School. If one of my children becomes ill, am I required to keep everyone home for a certain period of time?
Yes. If the sick child is experiencing a fever of 100.4 or higher, vomit and/or diarrhea, then all siblings enrolled at All Saints are required to stay home for 24 hours for monitoring. The sick child must stay home for at least 48 hours and be fever free without medication, have no additional incidents of vomit or diarrhea, and have an overall improvement of symptoms before returning to school. One episode of vomit or diarrhea requires a sick period at home.
Will students still participate in Specials? Will my child play every day outdoors?
All classes will have Music and Outdoor Classroom.
Older Twos through Kindergarten will participate in Chapel.
Threes through Kindergarten will have Art.
Pre-K and Kindergarten will have Yoga and Spanish.
Outdoor play is incredibly important for children and an essential component of our curriculum.
The addition of the Imagination Playground, which will be located adjacent to Outdoor Classroom, will provide yet another designated outdoor space (other areas are main playground, class porches, and Outdoor Classroom) for classes to enjoy fresh air and play exploration in a socially-distanced environment. Every classroom will play outside every day. Classes may also use the Thomas Center (gym) weekly for gross motor play.
