2020 - 2021 Reopening Plans
The Holy Cross of San Antonio COVID-19 response information can be found on this webpage. In this time of uncertainty, please know that Holy Cross is committed to placing the the health and safety of our community is our primary concern and all recent decisions concerning our 2020-2021 reopening have been made with the upmost consideration and review of all the facts available.
For this reason, the one item of our plan that has remained constant is the our first day of school will be August 17th. Due to the current health landscape, we will start on that day virtually and will monitor the status as reported by public health authorities and determine to what extent in-person attendance is feasible. All parents should be prepared to exercise the in-person option if the health conditions and available safeguards are in place. When it is safe to bring our students, faculty, staff, and parents back to campus, we will do so at the earliest time possible. However, we are prepared to implement Online Remote Learning for as long as necessary.
Please use this page as the official resource of the Holy Cross Re-Opening Plan, All updates and news in regards to our plan will be posted on this webpage and on Facebook.
