Keeping St. Stephen's Safe

St. Stephen’s is committed to providing all our students with an outstanding educational experience—one that embodies the school’s enduring mission, vision and values. In planning for the 2022-23 school year, our top priorities remain the health, safety and well-being of our students and employees.

Over the summer, school leadership continued to monitor the situation on the ground in Austin. We are thinking carefully about how we can live and learn fully in community this year while keeping each other safe. In the coming days, we will share updates regarding our approach to COVID-19 for the start of the school year. As we have for the past two years, we will maintain a dashboard that reports weekly confirmed cases in our community.
