Re-Opening Letter 2020

Dear St. Rita School Parents and Guardians,

A healthy, safe, and secure return to our St. Rita School building is now our top priority. We anticipate offering in-person classes beginning on August 31. We will also plan to quickly switch to on-line learning should it become necessary at any time during the upcoming school year.

We formed a sixteen-member school re-opening committee consisting of teachers, parents, support staff, and administrators to develop plans to safely return to school for the 2020–2021 school year. At this time, we expect to re-open school the week of August 31. Please read Mrs. Tiezzi's entire re-opening letter.
