Diocese of San José temporarily close schools


SAN JOSE, CA (MARCH 12, 2020) – The Diocese of San José announced today that all diocesan schools will close from Friday, March 13 to Friday, March 27, 2020. Each school has developed distance learning plans, which will be implemented beginning Monday, March 16.

This closure includes all planned in-person school events and classes, including student activities, sports, and community gatherings. School facilities will not be open to students or parents during this time.

Although, as of today, there are no reports of confirmed Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases at any diocesan school, the diocese is taking these steps out of an abundance of caution.

“These measures we are taking not only protect our students, but also our neighbors and those most who may be most vulnerable to the health effects of this virus,” said Bishop Oscar Cantú, bishop of the Diocese of San José.
