As many of you probably heard, there have been published peer-reviewed studies that confirmed COVID transmissions in schools are nearly non-existent when mitigation practices are followed. In fact, the CDC is now recommending schools reopen when strong mitigation plans are in place, even if teachers have yet to be vaccinated. Fortunately, unlike many schools across the country (and even in the state), teachers have been receiving their vaccines for the last two and a half weeks, and some are scheduled for their second shot as early as next week.
Given the new diocesan and PCHD guidelines, the St. A's school board has unanimously approved the school to go back to full hybrid on Monday, February 15.
Students choosing not to be on campus may still take their classes via Zoom. We are essentially returning to the same arrangement that was in place last semester. For more information, please see our COVID page.
