Dear STH Community,
In light of recent updates surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, St. Thomas High School has made the decision to not return to campus for face-to-face instruction for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. It has become clear that it will be in the best interest, safety, health, emotional, and spiritual well-being of our STH community to continue remote learning and keep our no visitor policy in effect.
We have built systems and structures to deliver learning online for the time being, and while we recognize this system is not perfect, we believe it will allow us to successfully complete the year while we focus on our planning for the reopening of the school in the fall. We are grateful for the dedication and vigilant efforts of our teachers and staff who are helping to provide our students with a consistent learning environment and as normal a routine as possible.
We remain deeply committed to the on-going effort to cease the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and stand together with our STH community as we navigate through this uncharted territory. We continue to work together to support students, faculty, staff, and families in the short- and long-term. Be assured that we will communicate any updates as they become available. We remain in constant communication with local health officials and state education agencies as we work to ensure the best maintenance of our school.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time while we work together to strengthen our community while practicing our motto of goodness, discipline, and knowledge.
Fr. James Murphy, CSB Dr. Aaron Dominguez
President, St. Thomas High School Principal, St. Thomas High School
