PUT PREVENTION ON YOUR BACK-TO-SCHOOL LIST
Cristo Rey requires universal indoor masking by all students, staff, teachers, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status. The best prevention strategy is to receive a Covid-19 vaccine. Thanks to Care on the Boulevard, PUMAS and family members can be vaccinated at school on Orientation Days between 4 and 6 pm.

In addition to universal indoor masking, Cristo Rey is following CDC guidance and will maintain at least 3 feet of physical distance between students within classrooms to reduce risks. In addition to social distancing, handwashing, respiratory etiquette, staying home when sick and rigorous cleaning and disinfecting are key components of prevention to keep the school community safe.

SPORTS PHYSICALS
Need a sports physical to make the team?  A free sports physical clinic will run concurrent with the vaccine clinic from 4-6 pm on Orientation Days – August 16 and 17. Walk-ins are welcome!
