All parents of Nerinx Hall students are members of our parent organizations – the Fathers Club, Mothers Club, and Parent Network. These organizations exist to involve parents in the Nerinx Hall community, to provide for parent/student activities, and to offer support for parents. Parent club dues are collected as part of the comprehensive student fee.
Whether you have a lot or a little time to give, volunteering for an event or activity is a great way to meet other Nerinx parents. The parents you meet will become life-long friends, just as their daughters are your daughter's friends. You'll have a great time while you help a great school.
ATTENDANCE REPORTING and health screenings
DAILY HEALTH SCREENING
The days of “powering through it” while sick are over! We need everyone’s cooperation —do not come to school sick. The symptoms of COVID-19 often mirror those of a common cold. Students and staff members must stay home even for what seems to be something minor, unless they are cleared to return by a medical professional or a negative viral test.
Students who stay home sick will participate in remote learning, provided their symptoms are not severe enough to impede learning. If a student is too ill to participate in remote learning, the parent must call the attendance line to report the student absent by 9 a.m. Students and staff who have been knowingly exposed to COVID-19 should refrain from coming to campus and seek advice from their healthcare provider on quarantine procedures. If the student or staff member has continuous close contact with a COVID-10+ family member, their quarantine period and absence may be longer than 14 days. Their quarantine period will only end when their family member is officially cleared by local public health officials. They will need to stay home and be monitored for symptoms of COVID-19 during this time.
Each student and staff member must complete the daily health screening prior to arriving to campus. The link is located on the Google calendar. Staff members will be at the doors the rst few weeks of school to ensure compliance. Please remind your child to complete the screening each day, and please be on the lookout for symptoms. Students and staff must avoid campus if they exhibit any of the following symptoms:
Fever of 100 or higher
Shortness of Breath
Loss of taste and smell
Gastrointestinal symptoms (i.e. nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, etc.)
Drop Off, Pick Up & Parking
DROF OFF FOR 2020-21 ScHOOL YEAR
Students can enter the building through the front door, gym entrance, and back entrance. The West Drive entrances will not be open for the 2020-21 school year.
GARDEN AVENUE ENTRANCE FOR PERMIT PARKING
Only students and faculty with permits to park on the back lot should enter the back lot from Garden Avenue. All students should make sure that parking permits are on the rear-view mirror and are visible. Any car without a Nerinx permit is subject to towing.
Students should only park in their assigned parking spaces. If there is someone else parked in a student’s spot, the student should make note of the license plate and report it to the main office, and the student will be given a permit to park in a visitor’s spot. The unauthorized car will be subject to towing.
FRONT PARKING AREA
There is no student parking allowed in the front parking area at any time, except for the two special spots purchased at the auction. All spaces are reserved for Nerinx faculty and staff. Parents may use the marked visitor spots on the circle drive when visiting school during the day.
Students who do not have parking permits must use street parking or park in public parking lots, not in merchant lots.
NERINX OF THE WEBSTER UNIVERSITY PARKING GARAGE
Please note that any cars parked in the Nerinx Hall section of the new Webster University parking garage must display a Nerinx parking permit. Any cars without a permit will be towed. Warnings will not be issued.
For the 2020-21 school year, building hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students arriving to school before 7:30 a.m. must report to the EAC. Desks will be spaced 6 ft apart to allow for independent study. Students arriving after 7:30 a.m. should report to their designated homeroom and sit in their assigned seats. If students are in the building after 3:15 p.m. each day, they should report to the Library, unless participating in another supervised Nerinx activity.
Students will not have access to the building on weekends or non-school days unless they are involved in a supervised Nerinx Hall activity.
A student should use her entry card to allow her access to the building from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each regular school day. Students are responsible for their unique entry card and homeroom moderators will conduct random entry card checks.
