Episcopal school students quarantined after off-campus social events

Episcopal school students quarantined after off-campus social events

Students in the upper school at Episcopal School of Baton Rouge are switching to on-line education. This after a quarter of those students attended off-campus social events where it is possible they were exposed to Corona 19.

The school was founded in 1965.

The Advocate reports:

“Transitioning Upper School to distance learning is a precautionary measure to create a gap between those who have been exposed and those who have not been exposed,” a school press release said.

Head of School Dr. Carrie Steakley said a quarter of the Upper School students were asked to quarantine after “multiple off-campus social events last weekend.”

On-line learning for these students will continue for the remainder of the month.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.
