Returning to School News: An Important Announcement

Dear St. Anthony High School Family,
The Archdiocese of Los Angeles announced this week that St. Anthony High School may resume on-campus instruction this fall. Freshmen students will begin school Monday, August 17, with Freshman Orientation, and on Wednesday, August 19, all students will resume on-campus instruction.  
The school’s opening in August will follow guidance from the California Department of Public Health which includes physical distancing, regular sanitation, frequent hand washing, face coverings and daily temperature checks. Our school is in the process of creating a customized plan to meet our specific needs, in addition to these modifications. St. Anthony’s relatively small school size and small classes are a great advantage, as we strive to create an environment that is as safe as possible for our entire school community.

Please take a moment to read the attached letter from Paul Escala, Superintendent of Schools for the Department of Catholic Schools, for more details. This letter is available in both English and Spanish. Further guidance will continue coming to us from a variety of reputable sources in the coming weeks, and we promise to stay in touch and keep you informed.
Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year, St. Anthony High School’s Centennial Year of Celebration!
