St. Joe students returned to campus for the beginning of the 2020-2021 academic school year on Tuesday, August 11th.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, students and faculty were required to undergo temperature checks as well as wear masks at all times. Class sizes were also cut down from their usual number to enforce social distancing.

“In an abundance of caution, St. Joe has made some changes that will help everybody be as safe as possible,” said Principal Dena Kinsey.

Seniors, before entering the school buildings, enjoyed breakfast on the football field hosted by the senior parents. Following the breakfast,  the senior class migrated to the senior deck for the annual claiming of the deck.

This year might be different, but some things will always remain the same.
