A message from Jeanne Gearon, superintendent of Catholic Schools
The ten Catholic schools under the jurisdiction of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington along with the two independent Catholic schools in Vermont are planning for in-person instruction for the upcoming school year. These schools are United in Faith, Returning with C.A.R.E. and are planning to effectively re-imagine their communities and academics in order to meet the needs of their students, families, faculties, and staffs.
The principals, in collaboration with the Office of Catholic Schools, spent several weeks drafting guidelines for in-person instruction (see link above) The development of these guidelines was enlightened by information provided from various recognized public health and/or educational authorities:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
American Academy of Pediatrics: COVID-19 Planning Considerations:
