St. Dorothy Catholic School
Summer Update - July 29, 2021
Don't Panic - August Begins Next Week
Mrs. Jasso and I are getting ready to welcome back our teachers. Books are coming in almost daily, and the classrooms are being cleaned so they will be nice and shiny for our Bruins come August 18th.
As summer continues, please stay safe. With only 3 weeks until school starts, there are still rising numbers of Covid's Delta Variant. Please check with your doctor about getting the vaccine for you and family members age 12 and over. Remember to wash your hands and wear your masks. We will do all we can to keep all of our students safe, but it takes a community effort.

Fall Covid Update
Our Superintendant of Schools, Mr. Paul Escala, has sent a letter to our Catholic school families. I am including it below.
The school wil resume with masks being worn indoors by everyone on campus. Masks will not need to be worn while outdoors.
The school will continue to have daily cleaning and students will be encouraged to frequently wash hands and use hand sanitizer.
We will have distancing in the classroom, using the CDPH recommendation of at least 3 feet between students, as well as considering other types of mitigation.
Air purifiers will be placed in all classrooms for better ventilation. Our classroom doors will remain open while school is in session, as weather permits, to ensure better ventilation.
TheSupply List is also attached. All supplies are due by the first day of school and can be delivered during our orientation/supply drop off dates on August 16 and 17.
