Governor Northam’s Executive Order 53 closes all K-12 in-person instruction for the remainder of the academic year. We will continue working with your children in our e-Learning model. All school activities and events are cancelled through the end of the school year.
I will keep you informed of updates and directives from Fr. Ziegler and the Diocese of Arlington Office of Catholic Schools. Updates may include information regarding First Holy Communion, gathering student belongings from the school building, etc. I assure you that I will communicate updates as I receive them.
Saint Patrick Catholic School will remain in close contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Virginia Department of Health (VDH),
and the Rappahannock Area Health Department (RAHD) for the most current information and recommendations. The current risk of COVID-19 infection to the American public is still considered low. The most up-to-date information about the COVID-19 outbreak can be found on the CDC website and the Virginia Department of Health website.
