Re-opening School During COVID-19

Dear Saint Dennis School Families,

As you are no doubt aware, information regarding Covid-19 (Coronavirus) is continuing to develop. Each day, we receive new updates on the virus and on how to address concerns. I am in regular communication with the Diocese of Madison, the Madison Metropolitan School District, and the Dane County Health Department. I am also getting information from the Wisconsin Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Please take a few minutes to read the Diocese sent a letter sharing the CDC’s new guidance for re-opening schools. As we get ready to re-open our school, we will make sure to keep you informed about any new information that may impact our current plan.

Below our the policies and procedures for opening our school safely. Please make sure you and your student(s) are familiar with the information below.

As always, please contact me if you have any questions.


Matt Beisser, Principal
