An off-campus staff event, a coronavirus, a “situation”.
Officials at Cathedral Catholic High School on Wednesday opened a statement sent to the school community: only to delay the start of the school year. “
Later that day, school president Kevin Calkins told NBC 7 that the disappointing news started at an offsite staff event, prompting a hasty rescheduling of the school’s directions, which were on the schedule for this week, including Wednesday, as well as the first day of school, which was scheduled for August 16.
The CCHS President said “there was a big rally that put us in a tough spot,” particularly a staff retreat where one participant tested positive and contact tracing guidelines required some participants – of vaccinated and unvaccinated people – to self-quarantine.
Calkins said the delay is expected to push things back for just a few days, with classes starting next week, with the school hoping to avoid a repeat of last year’s e-learning.
Although he stressed that there was “no epidemic on campus,” Calkins said the track and field was going as planned, but the locker rooms and the training room / weight room were going. be “unavailable until further notice”.
