Updated March 23:
This afternoon, Gov. Wolf announced that the school closure is extended until at least April 6, 2020, for the counties under the Governor's "Stay at Home" order. Click HERE to read the PA Department of Education's announcement. Therefore, schools in the Diocese of Pittsburgh will also be closed for regular instruction until at least April 6, 2020, and Seton LaSalle will continue with online learning for our students. COVID-19 updates for current families are available HERE; updates for prospective families are available HERE.
Based on the mandate by Governor Tom Wolf and confirmed in a letter from Mrs. Michelle Peduto, Director of Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Pittsburgh, Seton LaSalle High School will be officially closed for regular instruction to students until March 30, 2020. All extracurricular activities are canceled indefinitely.
Due to the closure dates (up to April 14) of the public school districts around us who provide our students with transportation, we will reevaluate the extent of our closure.
In the meantime, we are preparing for online instruction to begin on Wednesday, March 18, and we will utilize extended flexible instructional days (Chrome from Home) to continue with classes for the foreseeable future. Our teachers will have two in-service days to make final preparations for extended flexible instructional days.
We take our responsibility to educate your children very seriously, and our teachers and guidance counselors will be available daily for communication with students. In the meantime, you can get the most up-to-date Diocesan information regarding COVID-19, including information that may affect your parish HERE. More information on COVID-19 is available on the CDC website, PA Department of Health website, and Allegheny County Health Department website.
