Indoors: Masks are required for all individuals aged 2 years and older, including students, teachers,
staff, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status.

Outdoors: Masks do not need to be worn when outdoors.

As stated in the Superintendent’s letter, “The previously given guidance of schools utilizing multiple layers of prevention strategies, everyone monitoring their health and staying home when sick, and our schools monitoring exposure and positive cases will remain in place.”

“We will continue to monitor all guidance from the CDC, VDH, and the Commonwealth of Virginia and notify
you of any changes. We appreciate your ongoing support and patience during this continued time of
uncertainty. We remain steadfast in our desire to provide the same excellent education our Catholic schools
are known for, one that focuses on the academic, social, emotional, and spiritual growth of our students.”
