Saint Anthony Catholic School reported that one member of its school community tested positive for the virus.
The regular school year already ended for Saint Anthony on May 21. However, because Saint Anthony has begun summer school, out of an abundance of caution it will revert to full remote learning for its summer classes for the rest of the week.

School administrators of Saint Anthony and Academy assure their parents and guardians that they are following all the necessary steps to ensure the safety of their students and adults. They met with Archdiocese Task Force members and the Superintendent of Catholic Education earlier tonight.
