Mansfield St. Peter's Junior High and High School building.

MANSFIELD -- Mansfield St. Peter's Schools will resume in-person learning on Tuesday, Oct. 20.

The school announced over the weekend it was going to a virtual classroom model on Monday, Oct. 19 after a positive COVID-19 test was discovered.

Here is Monday's letter from the school to its parents in its entirety:

Good afternoon Spartan family,

We have completed the contract tracing relative to the positive case at St. Peter’s. We are pleased to report that due to our careful adherence to our COVID safety procedures, exposure at school was minimal. Everyone that had potential exposure will have already been contacted by Richland Public Health at this time.

In addition to taking this time to complete the contract tracing process, we have also implemented our enhanced cleaning protocols as indicated in our Restart Smart plan.

Therefore, we are happy to announce that we will be able to resume in-person schooling effective tomorrow, Tuesday, Oct. 20. All students and staff should report as normal.

However, if anyone would prefer to continue with online learning at this time, please simply call in and let us know. Speaking of online learning, I am pleased to report that we had only five absences today, only one of which was related to issues with accessing virtual classes, and that was resolved before by the beginning of 2nd block. Thank you for your patience and support in helping us make this model work!

If anyone has any further questions, please feel free to call the school or email your building principal directly.

Have a wonderful day,

Mr. Cuttitta & Mrs. Rastorfer
