Preschool COVID-19 Safety Plan

"Where Young Minds Grow in God's Love"



STA Preschool will re-open with new safety and health guidelines in place. Our plan is based on guidance from the Archdiocese of Atlanta Office of Catholic Schools, CDC, WHO, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL).   We rely on scientists and medical experts to provide the information needed to re-open with precautionary plans to help protect our preschoolers and staff.  Our staff will receive training in our new operational procedures and policies prior to the first day children return for classes.  As we receive updated information from our guiding authorities, we will revise our policies and procedures as circumstances indicate are necessary.
