Covid-19 & Keeping Our Community Safe
We have now safely welcomed students back to campus. The administration is closely monitoring updates from Gov. Ralph Northam, the departments of health and education, and other state agencies and will make adjustments as needed.
As always, the safety of the Walsingham community is our top priority. Sister Mary Jeanne and both school directors will continue to keep you informed as the school year progresses. Please see below for answers to the most common questions we have received.
