COVID-19 Emails, Policies, and Procedures

If your son is vaccinated against COVID-19, it is important that his card is on file. If you have not already done so, please scan and e-mail a copy of his card to  

Having cards on file allows us to quickly identify who must be placed on the quarantine/remote learning list. We are receiving too many e-mails the night of an exposure with vaccine cards, and it leads to human error when trying to update our list.

Monsignor Farrell High School will be checking the validity of each card. Thank you for your cooperation with this.

Please read the following information regarding COVID-19 emails and policies/procedures.  

Any time we have a positive case in school, an e-mail will be sent out to the entire school community.

As per the Archdiocese, all students, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, who are considered a “close contact”, whether it is a classroom, lunchroom, or extracurricular activity exposure will receive the quarantine e-mail. If your son is fully vaccinated for at least two weeks of the exposure or has received a positive COVID-19 test in the past 90 days he does not need to quarantine. Therefore, it is important to have vaccine cards on file.

We suggest that students who need to quarantine e-mail their teachers to make them aware they will be added to the quarantine list.

Students who are fully vaccinated are permitted to attend class the next day, however, per Archdiocese rule, must still get tested by the date designated in the e-mail. Students must bring that negative result to the main office.

Remote learning is only an option for students who are deemed close contacts. The health/safety of our students, faculty, and staff is at the forefront of our policies. Each case has a story of its own. It is difficult to explain any policy of who/what/where/when/why someone is getting quarantined as a “close contact”.
