Dear Parents,

We do not yet know what next school year will bring in terms of COVID-19 safety practices in schools. Students in the public schools will continue to wear masks, and the Catholic schools may decide to follow suit. Other details are to be determined. I will keep you posted. I appreciate all your support of our school during this unique year.

Congratulations to our OLC Class of 2021. Move forward, toward the future!
