Sts. Peter & Paul Regional Catholic School is carefully monitoring the current and most relevant information related to the spread of the coronavirus in the US and Kentucky through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Lexington Fayette County Health Department (LFCHD). We have been in contact with LFCHD to ensure we are following all recommended protocols at this stage, per their guidelines, and we will continue to use them as an important resource as the situation changes. Our first priority is always the health and safety of our community and, as new information about the coronavirus is made available on an almost hourly basis, we are emphasizing a calm and steady approach to response planning.
Below you will find the latest updates, as well as some helpful resources.
