The Diocese of Erie has requested that each school within the Diocese create a plan of action for the Reopening of Schools for the 2020/2021 School year. Gretchen Caruso, President of the DCC School System stated, “The Erie Diocese recognizes that each school is unique and plans need to reflect local needs. The Health and Safety Plan will be created specifically for DuBois Central Catholic. The plan must keep Gov. Wolf’s color-coded reopening plan in mind, so school districts in red phase counties must continue remote instruction, for instance. The plan will have to be approved by the DCC Executive Board, then submitted to the Diocese of Erie for approval, and then finally by the local school board. According to the Diocese, the final plan must be posted on the school’s website before reopening can occur.
DCC has completed their Return to Sports Plan, which was approved by the DCC School Board on June 25th and the Director of Athletics for the Diocese of Erie, Doug Chuzie. The plan meets PIAA & Governors Directives and will be added to the DuBois Central Catholic website, www.duboiscatholic.com under the ‘Athletics’ tab, July first.
