As of Thursday, January 7th:
Since our last update in October, the administration and staff at St. Bernard’s have continued to monitor closely all developments related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. It is clear that our nation continues to be afflicted by this virus, and that the situation continues to affect how St. Bernard’s will teach its students. Specifically:
- Since our Rochester campus is now located within an “orange zone”, all in-class instruction at this campus is suspended for the Spring 2021 semester.
- The Albany campus at 40 North Main Avenue is used for purposes other than education. Therefore, this campus will remain closed for the Spring 2021 semester.
Instruction will continue exclusively through Zoom videoconferencing and our Canvas learning management system. There is hope on the horizon that with the introduction of several vaccines we will soon be able to return to in-class instruction. When this possibility arises, be assured you will hear from us immediately.
The entirety of our president's letter detailing our plan during this time can be read here.

May we take this time to pray to the Lord, our harbor and our true hope, and may we remember all those who are most vulnerable: those with preexisting conditions, the elderly, the poor, and those who have no one to care for them. Be assured of our prayers for you and yours during this time and please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.
