Due to the rapidly evolving health situation concerning the spread of COVID-19 or the Coronovirus, the parish has canceled all school and parish activities (with the exception of Mass and Saint Brigid of Kildare School) at this time until April 6, 2020, or until further notice. This includes this evening’s school musical, after school study tables and ALSO programs, field trips, sports practices and activities, Crucial Conversations, and parent volunteers during the school day. Latchkey and preschool will continue as scheduled.
If you had a conference or meeting scheduled with teachers, please contact me to confirm whether or not this will be occurring.
At this time school is not closing, however we understand that this is a rapidly evolving situation. We will follow the recommendations from the State of Ohio, as well as the decisions made by Dublin City Schools and the Diocesan Office of Catholic Schools. We will update you as soon as we hear if anything changes. For now, our teachers have been preparing for online learning in the case that schools do need to close.
In order to combat spread of viruses, our custodial staff have added additional cleaning and disinfecting measures, including cleaning all door handles, wash stations and drinking fountains multiple times a day. We are extending our evening cleaning crew’s hours to incorporate additional cleaning measures.
We encourage you all to take precautions as well. You can read more about steps to prevent the illness on the Center for Disease Control’s website here. The latest updates on COVID-19 in Ohio can be found on the Ohio Department of Health’s website here.
I will send emails as soon as anything changes, and we will also post the latest information on our website’s home page (www.stbrigidofkildare.com, scroll to “Latest News”).
