Our Safe Return to Campus offers SPSV’s plans to reduce community exposure to COVID-19. In it, readers can find our mandates on cloth face coverings, social distancing, our campus-wide disinfection plans, alternative schedules and more. Download our Safe Return to Campus Guide here.
Given the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, SPSV will update Our Safe Return to Campus when necessary. Parents, students and staff will first receive updates by email. SPSV will then post updates to the school website as quickly as possible.
Summer Message from Principal Martin to SPSV Families July 21st, 2020
Per the direction of the Diocese of Sacramento, St. Patrick-St. Vincent Catholic High School Principal and Interim President Coleen Martin closed our campus on March 12, 2020. SPSV will remain closed through the remainder of the academic year.
This campus closure includes the cancellation of planned school events, including athletics, performances, religious services, fundraisers, and field trips.
As of now, no students, faculty, or staff members have tested positive for COVID-19. The closure simply helps mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Our 400 students and 30 faculty have successfully transitioned to distance learning. Faculty are now teaching online using a variety of technologies, many of which were already a part of their courses. Our director of technology will keep working with faculty to define best distance learning practices for our students and to explore emerging online tools. While distance learning is no substitute for the rich on-campus experience we offer, it allows our students to stay engaged in a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum.
Please pray for the health of our entire community.

New Fund Established to Help Students of SPSV During Pandemic
Due to the quickly-evolving nature of COVID-19, many of our students and their families here at SPSV have been faced with unexpected hardship. As always, we aim to prioritize our students’ safety, personal well-being, and educational experience. However, this is difficult when worries outside of our control upend the daily lives of our students, faculty, and staff. As this situation continues to progress, we remain committed to providing the entire SPSV community a sense of solace and comfort.
To that effect, St. Patrick-St. Vincent has established the Extend Your Hand - Emergency Fund. These funds will be used to support the school’s most pressing needs, giving our community the greatest flexibility to make a real impact on those affected by the virus. This includes investing in school resources for distance learning, supporting tuition for students and their families impacted by financial hardship, and other valuable resources.
Please consider a gift to the Extend Your Hand - Emergency Fund as the SPSV community comes together to address our school’s most pressing needs. Click here for more information on the Emergency Fund.
