St. Joseph 2020 Re-Entry Plan

St. Joseph Central Catholic High School established a Re-entry Task Force committee charged with the responsibility to obtain federal, state, and county guidelines and to work diligently to develop a re-entry system that allows flexibility and transparency while prioritizing the health, safety, and wellness of our school community. Per the Governor of West Virginia, Mr. Jim Justice, schools will resume in-person instruction beginning September 8th, 2020.
St. Joseph Central Catholic High School will offer two academic learning models for its students: a traditional in-person 5 days/week learning option and a virtual learning option. Families will select their learning option prior to the start of each school quarter.

Update on 2020 start date

Dear Catholic School Families-

Governor Jim Justice has extended his emergency declaration order closing schools up to September 8, 2020, and our Catholic schools are required to obey his emergency order, even though we are prepared to open in the traditional teachers-and-students-in-the-classroom mode following State and public health guidance.

The Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston Catholic schools remain committed to providing quality Catholic school education while working with local and state health officials to provide the safest possible learning environment for our students, staff and administrators.

We know this raises a multitude of questions, which we will spend the up-coming days working through to develop answers for you.  


Mary Ann Deschaine, Ed.S.
