Protocols for the 2022–2023 School Year

For the 2022–2023 school year, Trinity has modified many of it's quarantine protocols. Masks are optional for all students (indoors and outdoors). Masks are required for 5 additional days after a 5 day quarantine due to a positive COVID test. We will no longer communicate positive cases to parents nor will the school be conducting contact tracing. If someone in your household tests positive for COVID, those who are asymptomatic may still attend school but will need to mask for ten days after last exposure. Anyone who feels unwell is encouraged to remain at home and get tested. If you submit a negative test (Antigen or PCR) to the school nurse you may come back to school.

Encouraging Vaccination and Booster Shots

Achieving high levels of Covid-19 vaccination among eligible students, as well as teachers, staff, and household members, is one of the most critical strategies to help schools safely maintain full operations. We do not require vaccinations for faculty, staff or students.

Vaccination is currently the leading public health prevention strategy to end the Covid-19 pandemic. People who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 are at low risk of symptomatic or severe illness, including hospitalization or death. A growing body of evidence suggests that people who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 are also less likely to have an asymptomatic infection or transmit Covid-19 to others than are people who are not fully vaccinated. In most settings, people who are fully vaccinated can safely resume activities they did before the pandemic. We recommend that everyone who is eligible for a booster shot receive one. It provides the most possible immunity to COVID-19.

Trinity's policy is that faculty and staff are not required to share protected health information. In order to protect the privacy of those who choose not to share this information, all faculty and staff have been asked not to share their vaccination status.
