It’s the second day for the new academic year for Santa Barbara Catholic School. And so far, parents feel assured knowing that their children will be taken care of on campus.
While COVID-19 is still a great concern for the parents of the students attending physically, parents feel that their children are in good hands with the staff of Santa Barbara Catholic School as they will take the necessary steps for their children to have a safe and healthy school year.
Lory Danao, parent of a student at Santa Barbara Catholic School, said: “The school has been really awesome in providing us their protocols and guidelines of how they’re going to handle certain situations in the classroom. So when they had the orientation here at Santa Barbara, it was actually really comforting to see what protocols are in place to make sure the kids’ safety is their number one priority.”
Matthew Sterosky, another parent of a student at Santa Barbara Catholic School, said: “I think as long as you take the precautions, like, you know, we have to deal with it. As a society, we can’t hide from it, it’s not going away so if we don’t actively do something to move forward, I don’t know where the end is.”
Mount Carmel, Saint Anthony, and Father Duenas are among the other Catholic Schools that opened today. All schools are still continuing to follow the proper safety precautions and sanitation requirements to ensure that they are doing their best to protect against COVID-19 on school grounds.
