The Crusader - Summer 2021 - 5

OUR SCHOOL NURSE
Mrs. Planchak has had a year like no
other! Her role was crucial to both
opening the school and ensuring it
remained open. She monitored our COVID
Health Plan with the Prince William
County Department of Health, coached
our faculty and staff on COVID prevention
measures, supported our families as they
dealt with possible exposures, and kept
everyone updated on the most recent
developments with this novel virus.
When the vaccine was made available
for school employees, she coordinated
opportunities for staff to get both doses
of the vaccine as soon as possible.
Mrs. Planchak, you are amazing and we
appreciate you more than we can say!
Thank you!
To our Aquinas families, thank you for:
● Being diligent about quarantining after
possible exposures
● Adapting with the schedule changes
● Supporting the faculty and staff
● Always being willing to help but
understanding that in-person volunteer
opportunities were limited
● Trusting us with your precious children
Reopening the school during the year of
COVID was certainly challenging and yet we
recognize how blessed we were to be able
to do so and the tremendous advantage
of in-person learning for our students.
Each morning as we opened the doors to
the school we were grateful. Against all
expectations, Aquinas made it through the
entire school year with no cases of COVID
originating in the school. For this we are
thankful to God!
