Local Catholic-school students returned to their classrooms this week to begin the 2020-21 school year. Students at Brighton’s Seton Catholic School, Webster’s St. Rita School and Rochester’s Nazareth Elementary School wore face masks, received temperature checks at the doors of their schools and had their desks separated by plastic dividers to maintain social distancing.
