HOLY TRINITY CATHOLIC SCHOOL CLASSROOMS ARE CLOSED BUT ROBUST DISTANCE LEARNING CONTINUES OUR STUDENTS’ EDUCATION Our exceptional teachers and staff have been working diligently to continue to offer a rich, faith-based educational experience for all students during this closure.

Students in grades 4-8 will utilize GoogleClassroom and students in PS3 through 5th grade will use SeeSaw, an online learning tool better suited to younger learners.
