Saint Rose School Reopening Plan

Give thanks to the Lord for He is Good. His Love endures forever.

Psalm 1:36

The following plan is the fruit of much research and input, both personal and professional. We are grateful to the individuals who served on the committee and advised Saint Rose of Lima School administrators on how to best reopen with safeguards that enable students, teachers and staff to operate safely and effectively.

As a community, we have experienced COVID-19 in an ever-changing landscape. While many are not in agreement as to how this pandemic should be handled, we have tried our best to base our decisions on common sense and science. The parent surveys we received from our school community affirmed a preference for what we have long held as a priority, that is: in-person instruction with all of the social, spiritual, emotional and physical benefits that come with a Catholic education. We are grateful to the 128 parents who completed the survey. It provided us with the information we needed to communicate in a way that addresses the direct concerns of our parents. Several individuals also shared with us some practical ideas that have been incorporated into our plan.

Please note that at this time the details contained in this plan take precedence over those outlined in our handbook.
