Steps being taken at this point:
Multiple principal meetings with the Archdiocese each week – to discuss safety protocols.
Archdiocese communitation to pastors and parishes about school opening weekly.
Meetings with local public school superintendent and school principals – safety and pocedures.
Weekly meetings with school staff to put scenarios together for multiple situations to take place.
