COVID and the 2022-2023 School Year
We understand that COVID is here to stay, and we are well prepared to co-exist with it while ensuring that our Padres enjoy robust and wide ranging academic and extracurricular programs that allow them to thrive spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and physically.
This school year, we will continue to employ proven strategies and common-sense policies that underscore our commitment to the health and safety of everyone in our Serra community. We do this in partnership with the San Mateo County Office of Education and in accordance with guidelines provided by the San Mateo County Health Department.
You can review our complete 2022-2023 COVID-19 School Safety Plan here. Following is helpful information taken from the plan to acquaint you with the policies and procedures that we have adopted for the new school year. Please understand that this information is subject to change based on local conditions and public health orders.
Let us walk together in the light of faith, as we recall the words of St. Junípero Serra . . .
"Siempre adelante, nunca atras! Always forward, never back."
