2021-2022 Covid Updates from our Head of School

The mission and vision of Veritas Academy has remained unchanged since the founding of the school and is rooted in partnership. As we navigated the 2020-2021 school year together, our primary objective was to maximize in-person, on-campus instruction for our students, conducted in a manner that was as safe as reasonably and practically possible for both our kids and their teachers. Striking that balance was not the easiest thing we attempted, and yet we saw it was possible as we remained committed to supporting the safety of our community and upholding the mission and values of Veritas Academy that brought us together. 

Our mission and commitment continue to anchor us as we now launch into the 2021-2022 school year. In what may still be a unique year, please continue to read our weekly Covid updates and join us in praying for each other and our school community, that we would be gracious and full of care and consideration for one another, that the Lord’s hand would cover and protect our children and families, and that we would individually and collectively be wise in our decisions as we fully rely on Him.

Covid Update – 2021.10.15

October 15, 2021
By Jef Fowler, HOS

Since last Friday, two positive Covid tests have been reported among Veritas students and faculty/staff, both from exposures outside of Veritas. One is an SL/R teacher, and the other is a GS student who tested positive following a sibling’s recent infection. (That sibling attends a different school.) They have all been quarantining this week. 

On Tuesday, Austin Public Health officially reduced the alert status for our area from Stage 4 to Stage 3. We’ve now been in the Stage 3 zone for about two full weeks and are approaching Stage 2 status (when the 7-day moving average of new hospitalizations from Covid drops below 15/day).
