Coronavirus Precautionary Measures

The City of Houston Health Department is recommending the following healthy hygiene habits to limit the spread of respiratory illnesses like COVID-19:


  • Washing hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (We are encouraging the students to say the "Our Father" while they wash since it takes approximately 20 seconds to recite);
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands;
  • Covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue and immediately throwing the tissue away, or using the elbow of your sleeve when a tissue is not available;
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick;
  • Staying home when sick and keeping children home when they are sick;
  • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Let's be vigilant in adhering to the above recommendations, so that we may protect one another and hopefully prevent the virus from spreading.


In situations like these, rumors may cause unnecessary reaction & panic. We encourage you to get information from credible sources. The City of Houston has created a website with updates, key messages & more at HoustonHealth.org. Also, the CDC (Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia) is providing updates at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/index.html.

Go Texan Day is this Friday

Students may wear their rodeo attire to school. Keep in mind that we will celebrate Mass that morning; please ensure that jeans are appropriate (no jeggings, holes, rips or tears). Hats may not be worn in church or in the classroom. Toy guns are not allowed.
