Holy Spirit Back in Class for Fall 2020
Although Monday was the first official day back for students at Holy Spirit Catholic School, Wednesday was the first full day of classes.
Classes resumed on Monday for the first time since March 13, the date when schools were forced to shut down due to the pandemic. Since then, staff spent their extended summer planning and preparing to welcome back students safely.
Following CDC guidelines, many safety measures have been put in place to help protect students and staff. Masks are required at all times to prevent the spread of COVID-19, along with many other measures.
Holy Spirit Principal Jonathan Loper said they’ve put measures in place so students and instructors are protected.
“Our classrooms are all socially distanced, we cleaned out our classrooms, and our student desks are all 6 feet apart. We have gone through and adjusted our schedules for a more choreographed class change in the middle and high school, so we’ve marked our hallways directionally. We have trained our students on the first few days of school on how we need them to move in the hallways,” said Loper.
Loper said training students early on moving through the hallways and navigating schedules will, in the long run, help reduce the chance of the virus spreading through large gatherings.
