Important updates regarding COVID-19 exclusions, vaccinations, and prom. 
My student is vaccinated. Does that mean he/she is excluded due to close contact?
If a student has had both doses of vaccine and it has been at least 14 days from the final dose, he or she will not be required to be excluded from on-campus events. If your student has received their vaccination and you would like the school to have it on record, please contact Mrs. Haeberlin-Cope: 

Will BMCHS be offering a vaccine clinic? 
In coordination with the Diocese, Bishop Manogue is working to offer a vaccination event to those who are interested and eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Please stay tuned for details. 

My student has already tested positive for COVID-19, do they still need to be excluded? 
If your student has received a positive laboratory-issued PCR COVID-19 test within the past 90 days (and after they have completed the initial exclusion), they will not be excluded from on-campus events. Unfortunately, if your student has had COVID-19 and it has been over 90 days, they can still be excluded as a close contact. As a reminder, at-home COVID-19 test results do not count as a viable proof of test. 

Is there going to be a prom? 
Prom for Seniors and Juniors is scheduled for May 22, 2021. Please note that no guests from schools other than Bishop Manogue are permitted to attend. Specific details are to follow. 

Happy B.A.S.H. Week!

Senior College Shirt Pictures Needed

Student Council will be collecting pictures of seniors wearing a shirt of the college they are planning to attend! If you do not have a shirt, you can use a sign or other creative way to showcase your college. Then we will have a weekly Instagram post (@manoguespirit) highlighting several seniors and celebrating their college plans!

You can email the picture directly to Shelly Gamble (

We are hoping to get pictures as soon as possible so we can start to highlight students, but this will be ongoing through the rest of the school year, so please send them in when you can!

For parents that are still in need of service hours to complete the hours carried over from 19-20, Facilities Director Garth Wilson has several projects available. The hours available would consist of all outside work: parking lot and fence line clean up, pulling weeds in designated areas, and outside painting. Times available are Mon-Friday 7:00-4:00 and Saturdays 7:00-2:00.  Please contact Bonnie Hansen at 775-336-600 or email her at for scheduling and details.

Parents will have to enroll in Protecting God's Children through Virtus and stay up to date on monthly bulletins for two years. After two years, you have completed all the necessary bulletins.
