Community News: ICA Cristo Rey's response to COVID 19

ICA Cristo Rey Academy’s Campus remains closed.

 Schools located in San Francisco may ONLY provide online instruction until further notice. On Friday, July 17, 2020, we received these specific re-opening details from the San Francisco Department of Health. 

Restrictions:
  • In accordance with the updated SF City and County Shelter-In-Place Order, requiring the wearing of masks when in public, everyone entering the campus is required to wear your mask.
  • Faculty and Staff are allowed on campus.
  • Students are allowed on campus while closed to collect necessary learning resources as directed. Ring the doorbell at the main entrance to the Academy Building on 24th unless otherwise directed. See CWSP Onboarding for New Students.
  • No Non-ICA Cristo Rey visitors – no friends or family for non-essential purposes.

We continue to plan for the future but please be aware that ALL dates remain subject to change.

 

We encourage all adults in the ICA Cristo Rey community to obtain the COVID vaccine.  Please check https://sf.gov/vaccine-sites or https://myturn.ca.gov/ to find out if you are eligible for the vaccine and where to obtain the vaccine.  If you have any questions about your eligibility or where to find the vaccine, please call the school at 415.824.2052.

As shared previously, the California Bishops stated, “Catholics have a moral obligation to protect their family, friends and community by vaccinating as soon as possible.”  Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco stated that all three vaccines are morally acceptable, and he encourages everyone to get vaccinated.  The U.S. Catholic Bishops issued a statement saying, “Given the world-wide suffering that this pandemic is causing, we again affirm that being vaccinated is an act of charity that serves the common good.”  Pope Francis has stated that by getting vaccinated, “we truly show love for our neighbor and God.” 

ASB and CNA students will interview Dr. Luis Rubio from UCSF regarding misconceptions and incorrect rumors about the COVID vaccine.  This interview will be shared with the ICA Cristo Rey community.

Les recomendamos a todos los adultos de la comunidad de ICA Cristo Rey que se vacunen contra el COVID. Por favor revisen la página https://sf.gov/es/vaccine-sites o  https://myturn.ca.gov/ para saber si son elegibles para recibir la vacuna y dónde pueden obtenerla. Si tienen alguna pregunta sobre su elegibilidad o lugar donde se pueden vacunar, por favor llamen a la escuela al 415.824.2052.

Como informamos anteriormente, los obispos católicos han dicho que las personas católicas tienen la obligación moral de proteger a sus familias, amigos y comunidad vacunándose lo antes posible. El arzobispo Salvatore Cordileone de San Francisco, ha dicho que las tres vacunas son moralmente aceptadas y pide a todos que se vacunen. Los obispos católicos de EE.UU. emitieron una declaración en la que decían que dado el sufrimiento a nivel mundial que esta pandemia ha causado, afirman nuevamente, que vacunarse es un acto de caridad que sirve al bien común. El Papa Francisco ha dicho que el vacunarse demuestra verdaderamente el amor por nuestro prójimo y nuestro amor por Dios.

Las alumnas de ASB y CNA entrevistarán al Dr. Luis Rubio de UCSF para aclarar ideas erróneas y rumores falsos sobre la vacuna contra COVID. Compartiremos esta reunión con toda la comunidad de ICA Cristo Rey.
