You can check the Diocesan website (www.dosaeducation.org) for school closures. We will keep you posted via email and parent text alerts about any possible school closures or delays.

COVID reminders

If your child tests positive for COVID, please notify me immediately via email (ddossantos@pcapvb.org).


Anyone who tests positive must stay at home for 5 full days before returning to school on Day 6, provided that there has been no fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines and that other symptoms are improving. (Please note that the first day of symptoms is considered Day 0.)


Siblings of positive cases may continue coming to school as long as they are not exhibiting ANY symptoms. Please use good judgment when sending siblings to school based on the amount of exposure they have had with the positive sibling.
