Pathway to Recovery Plan

2020-2021 Start of the School Year

Sacred Heart Academy was engaged in researching, evaluating and writing the school’s response to COVID-19. The plan was presented to the Faculty and Staff on July 30 and the Board of Trustees on August 3. The school created the Health and Safety Strategy committee.

The school’s plan aligns with the guidance issued but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Pennsylvania Department of Public Health (PDPH), the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), the National Business Officers Association (NBOA) and the Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools (PAIS).

The plan is a dynamic document. The school continues to monitor and adhere to current and updated regulatory guidelines and recommendations, our plans and arrangements may change. We have framed our reopening plan to allow nimble and flexible action whenever necessary.



Welcome Sacred Heart Academy Friends!
