Editor's Note: In his latest update, Head of School Jeff Bell announced Cardinal Gibbons' reopening plan for August.
Cardinal Gibbons’ Campus Reopening Plan includes preventative measures, which require everyone’s participation and support. If done effectively, together, these measures should greatly reduce the risk of virus transmission within the school. It also includes procedures we will follow when there is a positive case of COVID-19 among our school community. We need to be prepared for this likelihood, and for everyone to know in advance how it will be managed.
In light of all current information and with the health and well-being of our community our top priority, Cardinal Gibbons has made the decision to reopen school in August using our Plan B hybrid learning model. That model is a mix of in-person education and distance learning as well as myriad health and safety measures in place. Read more about the Plan B hybrid learning model as well as the others we considered in the Academic section of the full document.

The overall school reopening plan has been guided by resources from public health agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control, the Wake County Public Health Department, the North Carolina Department of Education, the Diocese, the Governor’s Office, and by our own COVID-19 Task Force, which includes educators, board members, health professionals, distance learning experts, lawyers, communications and HR specialists. We are grateful for this community-wide effort and for all who have contributed their time, talent, and resources to this unprecedented situation. We will always keep a close eye on the scientific guidance, and we will be keeping the Gibbons community of students, parents, and educators informed on a regular basis.
