Coronavirus Resources

Salesianum is actively monitoring news and developments related to the coronavirus (COVID-19), including the recommendations of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Delaware Division of Public Health. The health and safety of our students, employees and families are our highest priorities, and all decisions the school will make will prioritize public health.

We invite you to explore the informational tabs, found on the right side of this page, for regularly updated information and resources. Please note: ALL school events, including athletics, are canceled while the governor’s Public Health Emergency remains in place; we will update event status as additional information becomes available.

Our hearts go out to families at home and around the globe who have been impacted by the coronavirus. In the spirit of Salesian solidarity, we pray for the healing of those who are sick, wisdom for those in leadership, and peace of mind for those who are anxious.  

We appreciate the help of every member of the Salesianum family in staying informed and promoting health and safety in school and in the surrounding community.

  • Vaccination Opportunities - Age 12 and Older

    The FDA has expanded emergency use authorization for the Pfizer vaccine to 12 to 15 year olds. The Pfizer vaccine is readily available in pediatrician’s offices, pharmacies, and stand alone clinics for high school age groups. It is largely recognized as being safe and effective in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and preventing serious symptoms in rare breakthrough cases.  

    We recognize vaccination is a family decision made with input from pediatricians or medical providers. Salesianum will not be requiring the COVID vaccine for the fall, but strongly supports vaccination as a means for our school community to transition back to normal. If you have questions, please contact our School Nurse, Suzanne Mansi, at >>Delaware Vaccination Information

    COVID protocols are being reviewed this summer with consideration of State and CDC recommendations and guidelines. Please stay tuned for more information which we will share prior to the start of school in August.
