Our Lady of Grace's COVID-19 Response Plan
As Our Lady of Grace reopens in the fall, we are committed to pursuing in-person learning in a way that protects students, faculty, and staff and ensures their health. In order to achieve this objective, we will be following the following steps to maintain social distance and keep our community safe.

The Cohort Model
As we reopen, Our Lady of Grace will follow the cohort model, in which students remain with a set group for the entirety of their days to minimize exposure and keep them safe and healthy.
The Building Layout
To keep our students safe, we are re-evaluating our pick-up and drop-off procedures, as well as in-building routes, to ensure that student interact only within their cohorts.
To promote student health, anyone over the age of 2 will be asked to wear a mask. Masks may only be removed during designated activities, such as lunch and recess, if appropriate social distancing is oberved.
To ensure students' health, temperatures will be checked daily as children the building. Students running a fever will be asked to return home and visit a doctor to receive testing.
In addition to implementing preventative measures, Our Lady of Grace will adhere to a set of protocol in the case that a student or faculty member displays symptoms of COVID. These protocol will minimize exposure in order to promote the health of students and staff.
Remote Learning Option
To accommodate our families, students who are not ready to return to school will have the option to pursue remote learning through the Archdiocese of Chicago.
