Many Catholic schools, but not all, are opening this week and resuming classroom instruction after Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero signed an executive order allowing the resumption of in-person learning.

Some Catholic schools are opening on Monday, Sept. 20 while others will open on Tuesday, Sept. 21.

A number of Catholic schools plan to resume in-person learning later like Saint Francis, which plans to resume face-to-face instruction on Monday, Sept. 27, and Bishop Baumgartner Memorial Catholic School which is planning to resume face-to-face instruction at the onset of the 2nd quarter.

Many schools will continue to offer online learning and won’t mandate all of their students to go into in-person learning all at the same time.

At the Academy of Our Lady of Guam, freshmen and sophomore students will be the first groups to return on campus while the juniors and seniors will remain at home online. The following week, the junior and senior students will be on campus and the Freshmen and Sophomore classes will be at home online.

At Santa Barbara Catholic School, only students from PreK, Kindergarten, and First Grade will return to in-person instruction on Monday, Sept. 27. For the rest of the classes, the plan is a gradual return to school after the First Quarter Exams which is scheduled on Oct. 4-7, 2021.
