LADPH Revised Safer At Home Order


The Revised Safer At Home Order effectively prohibits gatherings of any size, closes non-essential section operations, and requires 100% masking and physical distancing.
 
At this time, under this Order, schools have been granted the privilege to continue operations, if they have been allowed under the various opening waivers (which St. Matthew's qualifies for).
 
In order to preserve our ability to offer in-person instruction, we are asking employees and families to prioritize our School and not attend/participate in activities with others outside of school. This order was put in effect on December 6th at 11:59 pm and will remain in place for three weeks at least until December 27, 2020.
