Statement from Stephen A. Perla
Superintendent of Schools
Diocese of Fall River
In response to Governor Charlie Baker’s announcement, all Diocese of Fall River elementary, middle and high schools will be closed through Friday, May 1st and plan to re-open Monday, May 4th.
All closed Catholic schools have been urged to make their best effort to carry out the academic mission of the school via various methods. Because this situation continues to be fluid, we will provide updates as necessary.
Any questions should be directed to the leadership of your individual Catholic school or the Catholic Schools Office at (508) 687-7301.
Parents are reminded that teachers will be communicating with you via email. Please check for updates from your student’s teacher(s) beginning this afternoon. Monday will be a preparation day for both our teachers and families. Distance learning assignments begin on Tuesday, March 17. Information on picking up material or book if needed will be communicated later today.
