Return to School
We invite you to read our three REOPEN PLANS for 2020-21. NWC continues to offer full onsite reopening but remains flexible and aware of the daily changes in our state and nation. The reopen plans allow Northwest Catholic to pivot to a hybrid or full virtual model.
Please read these RULES for self-screening and for returning to school following illness or exposure, school PROTOCOLS for responding to a positive case, and this FORM if your child is being evaluated for symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
With each positive COVID-19, in accordance with school protocol, administrators promptly collaborate with the West Hartford-Bloomfield Health District to evaluate the case and determine next steps. The school nurse and administrators complete contact tracing for every exposure. Those determined to be close contacts with the COVID-19 positive case are sent home to begin a period of quarantine and engage in virtual learning. Families of those considered to be a close contact are contacted by school administrators and provided with additional instructions regarding quarantine and next steps. Families who are not contacted are considered to not be in close contact with the positive case. We appreciate our community members adhering to our Safe Return Protocols, CT state travel protocols, and patience as we work collaboratively to maintain a safe, healthy community.
On January 8, 2021, Fr. Michael J. Dolan has been appointed president of Northwest Catholic High School, marking a significant and celebrated change from his original appointment on November 1, 2020 as interim president.
In a world that rewards extroversion and extremes, we look for the listener, the wise, the witness. We know leaders bring their whole selves to the task and those whole selves are rich with gifts, diverse gifts.
Being a diverse community doesn’t mean we understand everything about diversity. It doesn’t mean we are always engaged in the work. It certainly doesn’t mean we’ve arrived. What it means is we are diverse, and we think that's the right place to start.
