Dear Family and Friends,
I hope you are enjoying your summer! Aligning with the Governor and Diocesan Catholic Schools’ plan for phased reopening of schools, we are developing plans to safely bring students back to campus as conditions allow. Attached you will find two documents,
executive summary of plans
for the coming academic year from Mr. Adam Dufault, Superintendent of Catholic Schools.
A St Paul task force is already at work guided by teams who are focused on many aspects of St Paul’s re-opening. When and how we can all safely return to campus and resume on-campus activities depends on the status of the pandemic and the strategies we collectively and individually deploy to mitigate its effects. Our decision will be informed by health data and Diocesan reopening plans but tailored to St Paul’s unique density, operations and other considerations.
Our plan for a phased reopening of on-campus activities is guided by two core principles:
- Health and safety: We will continue to prioritize the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and parish in every decision we make.
- Faith and education: Every decision we make must be in service to our mission to form disciples of Christ. We are committed to ensuring that the worship, teaching, and learning of our students, faculty, and staff will continue at the highest levels of excellence.
In the coming weeks, our task force will continue developing customized plans and recommendations to gradually and safely resume on-campus activities. Thank you for your continued support and commitment to Catholic education.
Dr. Carol Walsh
