Bishop Guertin prides itself on being more than a school. Bishop Guertin is a community of genuine, caring people who feel like family and a place where everyone belongs. Since 1963, nearly 9,000 students have walked down the school halls, the heartbeat of the school. Naturally, Ron Cote, Dean of Students, and the school's staff wanted to keep the students safely in school, and the plan was to reopen in August 2020. The school began researching air purification controls as an added preventative measure to its comprehensive safety protocols for reopening. Bishop Guertin had already upgraded air conditioning units connected to central HVAC systems with MERV filtration but still needed high-quality air purification units for many rooms to increase air exchanges.
