Statement from the Office of Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Washington on Maryland Governor’s Revised Emergency Order

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Archdiocese of Washington is grateful to learn of Governor Hogan’s Emergency Order to Prohibit Blanket School Closures that allows private and parochial schools the autonomy and flexibility to make reopening decisions in line with public health guidelines. We will continue to work with our educators and communities to ensure the safe re-opening of the schools of the Archdiocese of Washington and continue to place the health and wellbeing of our children at the forefront of our efforts.
