THE CALL TO BE
“MEN FOR OTHERS”
The safe reopening of Jesuit High School in August, with all of our students and faculty
together on campus each day, requires the whole school community to come together
with a determination and willingness to make sacrifices for the good of one another and
our campus visitors. The call to be “Men for Others” has special resonance for all of us this
Faculty and staff must take care to observe the policies adopted by the school as regards
the safety and health of employees and students, and must be prepared to provide
additional support to students and families facing unanticipated challenges.
Parents will need to take particular care to safeguard the health of their families, keep
their sons at home when sick, and avoid unsafe activities and situations.
Students in particular have a special obligation to themselves and their families, as well as
their teachers and brother Tigers, to govern their own behavior and choices at all times, so
that they do not put themselves or others at risk.
In consultation with medical experts, we have developed two detailed protocols, one
for Jesuit employees and one for students. These protocols provide explicit guidance for
cases in which employees or students have symptoms of COVID-19 or a confirmed case
of COVID-19, as well as for employees and students who have been in close proximity
with an individual with a confirmed case of COVID-19. We will continue to revisit and
amend these protocols and all safety procedures as circumstances warrant.
The challenges ahead give all of us the opportunity to be “Men for Others” each day and
to dedicate the 2020-21 school year to the greater glory of God!
