Important Update from the OC Department of Catholic Schools: Response to Gov. Newsom’s Announcement for Re-Opening California Schools

July 17, 2020

Dear Parents,

The Governor’s most recent announcement may impact our plan to resume in-person instruction in late August in accordance with the Health and Safety Plan we released yesterday. In the event that the Governor’s order remains in effect, we are prepared to implement our new distance learning protocols.

Over the past several weeks, we have not only been developing a Re-Opening Plan, but have also been working diligently to refine and improve our distance learning strategy in order to provide the best possible instruction to our students. Either way, we are determined to deliver high quality instruction to support our students effectively whether in-person or remotely. We want to reassure you that as soon as we are legally permitted to open our campus, we will do so immediately. We will continue to monitor the situation in concert with the Diocese of Orange and will keep you informed of any updates. Thank you for your support. We are praying that the situation improves and ask you to do the same!

Peace and health, Mrs. Denise Grant, Principal SSJ School
