Despite continued uncertainty over COVID-19, Catholic schools across the country are moving forward with plans to welcome students for in-person instruction this fall that will involve stringent safety protocols and continued options for virtual learning.

Though cases of the novel coronavirus continue to increase, especially in some Southern states, some families surveyed this summer told the Register they still feel connected to their Catholic school community and want to bring their children back to school in the fall.

While dioceses and schools face different challenges in reopening, many are preparing a variety of learning options: in-person, remote and a hybrid of the two. At the same time, they’re consulting with local health officials and other government officials about how to modify and maintain school buildings to keep students and staff safe.
