COVID-19 Response

  • We have created our Back-to-School Plan to aid in navigating the reestablishment of our school community where employees, students, and families feel safe. Every attempt has been made to reduce the impact of COVID-19 conditions upon returning to our school. The guidelines referenced in this plan are based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Florida Department of Health (FDOH), and our Diocese. We continue to look at best practices in education while listening to the recommendations being made by the Department of Education (DOE), Office of Early Learning (OEL), the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA), the Florida Catholic Conference (FCC). Regular updates will be made to this plan based on information provided by all the organizations mentioned above and applicable federal, state, and local agencies.

    Our priorities are:

    1. Safety: Mitigating and slowing the growth of COVID-19 in the context of a return to
      work and schools. Understanding that there is inherent risk in returning from social
      distancing while in a pandemic, we also understand that we are part of a societal decision
      that accepts balancing COVID-19 risk against the need for life to continue.
           a. Hygiene Within Classrooms - we will emphasize strong hygienic practice.
           b. Distance Options - We will offer the option of Distance Learning, using live synchronous teaching.
    2. Presence: Keeping school open daily. We do not want to burden parents with
      challenging schedules that require them to stay home and out of work - we want our
      students at school, in their cohorts, for the full day. This is good for the children’s mental
      health and social growth.
    3. Growth: Despite limitations, we want our children to continue their academic progress
      at grade level in their faith and in all core academic standards.
