Schools reopened today and unlike public schools that are scheduled to open online, many Baltimore area Catholic schools return to the classroom with students for the first time since last March.

Eastern Baltimore County Catholic schools opened at Our Lady of Hope/St. Luke’s school in Dundalk, St. Joseph School in Fullerton, Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Essex and St. Michael-St. Clement School in Overlea. There are also students that have choosen to learn remotely.

Pictures show that students returned to school wearing masks. The Archdiocese of Baltimore Catholic Schools released a statement about the first day of school.

“As Catholic school students return to classes today in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, we pray for a safe and healthy academic year for both teachers and students.”
