Important Health Protocols (Fall 2021)

We look forward to welcoming our esteemed alumni and their families to campus under the prevailing COVID-19 protocols at the time of the event and attendance may be limited.

Guests will be asked to self-screen prior to the event and to practice social distancing while on campus. Bishop O'Connell High School has strict sanitation policies in place and our staff is working hard to ensure a safe and memorable event for our awardees. Masks/facial coverings are currently required to visit indoor areas on campus.

Guests will join us beginning at 4:30 p.m. for an elegant cocktail reception in the newly renovated atrium at the entrance of the school.  During the awards ceremony itself, families will be grouped together in assigned seating areas with appropriate distance between family groups. We anticipate concluding the event in two hours time, allowing enough time for families to enjoy a late dinner on their own.
