As we get more information about reopening school in a few weeks, I wanted you to know that I will be updating this information page as I receive information to share with you. I am working on revising our St. Patrick’s School Reopening Plan though it will look very similar to how it looked last year, with a few slight changes. As always, our first priority is the health, safety, and wellness of our students and staff, so we will provide a plan that follows current recommendations but also fits our school’s needs. Thank you for your continued support of our school. We will get through this together! Keep praying for our school!

7/30/2020 Dear Parents,
Our school is working on a return to school learning plan to be submitted and approved by the Department of Health and State Education Department. It will be uploaded here as soon as it is approved. Because of our small class sizes and large classrooms, we have enough space to go back to in-person instruction 5 days a week as of September. Our first priority is the health, safety, and wellness of our students and staff, so we have provided a plan that follows current recommendations, and hope to to provide more information here in the coming days. Thank you for your continued support of our school. We will get through this together! Keep praying for our school!
