Last week, the CDC came out with new recommendations of shorter isolation and quarantine times. The Kent County Health Department has let us know these do not apply to K-12 schools. The August mandate by the KCHD will continue to be in effect until a new order is written. Isolation remains at 10 days, with quarantines having a 7-day, 10-day or 14-day option. A test-to-stay option is available in some cases. 

Additionally, the definition of ‘fully vaccinated’ has changed to include boosters. While the KCHD is recommending this change, it is not in the existing mandate.

I will provide full details once the new mandate is written. In the meantime, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Another successful All A's Walk is in the books! Our students crushed this year's goal, raising just under $80,000 (a new record!) for tuition assistance programs at West Catholic. As part of the celebration, students walked from the school to St. Ann's Home, praying for residents, holding up signs of encouragement and greeting those who came outside to say hello.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this event possible, especially our donors and sponsors! For a list of 2021 All A's Walk sponsors, please visit grwestcatholic.org/walk-sponsors-2021.

Students - as a reward for your hard work to help us reach our fundraising goal, you have earned a day off of school on Monday, October 25! Enjoy your four-day weekend later this month (there is no school on Friday, October 22 for Diocesan PD)!

Thanks to an anonymous donor this past year, current WC students are able to attend all regular season HOME athletic events for free! The athletic department is excited to share this gift with our students. For everyone else, we are now accepting purchases for our regular season family/adult/student passes and VIP parking passes. VIP parking passes allow for easy parking at varsity football games. You must have a VIP pass in order to park in the VIP parking area.

For your convenience, we have changed our order process to online. Please go to community.grwestcatholic.org/athletics-passes to order the passes necessary for your families. Orders are due by September 10. Don't forget, if you have a current WC student, they will be receiving a free student pass!

Go Falcons!
