St. George's COVID-19 Response

The school's top priority is always the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff. We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 outbreak with guidance from the Rhode Island Governor's Office and the Rhode Island Department of Health, as well our peer and local schools and universities. We will continue to look to these organizations for guidance in how we plan for a return to school on the Hilltop.

This website will serve as a central location to share the latest information as well as details on what the school is doing to ensure a productive and safe learning environment. Please bookmark this page so you can easily find the latest updates on COVID-19 as it relates to St. George's School.
