COVID-19 Protocol Update for the Start of the 2021-22 School Year

Dear St. Patrick Families:

With the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in our area, we have made the following adjustment to our COVID-19 protocol:

In all areas where three feet of social distancing is not possible, masks will be required to be worn by students and school personnel.  This includes hallways, buses, and common areas. Teachers are working to separate student desks as much as possible in classrooms. Students and school personnel may wear masks at any time and will be accepted with love, respect, and compassion.

We are expecting all other COVID-19 protocols to remain as we sent on July 30.  We will continue to ensure sanitization and appropriate cleaning measures to the highest standard.

As always, we continue to closely monitor the changing circumstances and are prepared to make adjustments as needed. We will reevaluate the protocol concerning masks weekly and make changes as we are able to do so.

The spiritual, physical, intellectual, and emotional wellness of all students, faculty, and staff remains our highest priority.

Know of our continued prayers for you and your family. May we continue to keep those affected by COVID-19 in our prayers each day. If there is anything you need, please reach out to a member of our team. We all look forward to seeing you soon.

God bless and Go Irish!
