Athletics and School Activities
We are hoping to provide our students with a virtual Mass every Friday whether from our local parishes or another nationally or internationally broadcast. When allowed to return to Church we will be following all social distancing guidelines, including PPE use and cleaning and disinfection as outlined by the church.
In the event that Faith Formation uses our building they will be required to follow all cleaning and disinfecting guidelines of areas used.
At this time no extracurricular activities or interscholastic sports are planned for the coming school year. Should this change all necessary COVID-19 precautions, PPE use, social distancing, and cleaning and disinfecting guidelines will be fully enforced.
A written plan is in place for before and aftercare programs run by the school.
Policies regarding before and aftercare programs include social distancing, PPE usage, cleaning and disinfection requirements, as well as risk of COVID-19 transmission. Protocols in how to maintain cohorts, if applicable, or group members of the same household will be considered.
Per the NY DOH Guidance, interscholastic sports are not permitted at the time of publication of this guidance. Additional information is forthcoming.
The New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYPSPHSAA) has established a COVID-19 Task Force composed of religious and independent school Athletic Directors and public school district administrators responsible for providing guidance to allow New York high school student-athletes to return to athletics as soon and as safely as possible. The task force is reviewing State and local health guidelines, as well as NYSED guidance, regarding the 2020-2021 school year to determine, among other things, the extent to which changes may be needed for each interscholastic sports season. The COVID-19 Task Force will continue to review all aspects of the fall 2020 season and the 2020-2021 school year related to the COVID-19 crisis, such as: practice requirement; fan attendance; resocialization efforts; protocol, procedures; transportation; etc. As more information becomes available it will be shared on the NYSPHSAA website.
