Dear Students, Parents, Faculty and Staff,
The year 2020 has been one marked by so much uncertainty and change. It seems the more you plan, the more things change! And that is true as we start the new school year.
We originally planned the first day of school for August 13; but we are pushing the date back. Freshman Orientation and Big/Lil Sis Day will be September 1, 2020 and the first day of school for everyone will be September 2, 2020.
We have received a gift to help add another layer of protection for our students and staff utilizing Plasma Air Units. These state-of-the-art devices will be installed throughout the campus including all classroom VRF units. Utilizing bipolar ionization, the Plasma Air HVAC devices safely and effectively reduce bacteria, viruses, allergens, volatile organic compound and particulate matter.
We are grateful to the donor and appreciate your patience as we delay the start of school to install these devices in every classroom, office and common area.
We are NOT changing the schedule on the following school events:
Freshman Tablet Training Sessions – August 5-7, 2020
Faculty/Staff In-Service Days – August 10-11, 2020
Freshman Welcome Nights – August 10-11, 2020
The schedule for the first week of school will be:
Tuesday, September 1: Freshman Orientation and Big/Lil Sis Day 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
Wednesday, September 2: First Day of School 7 Bell 8:00 a.m. with dismissal starting at 2:30 p.m.
Thursday, September 3: 4 Bell 8:00 a.m. with dismissal starting at 2:30 p.m.
Out of Uniform Day – all students required to bring in one roll of paper towels
Friday, September 4: 3 Bell 8:00 a.m. with dismissal starting at 1:45 p.m.
(no club or other scheduled meetings)
Please note: We will use the August Dismissal Schedule for the month of September.
We want to thank you for your support and understanding as we make every effort to reopen school and provide our students with an exceptional Catholic education. The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff remain the top priority and we believe this is a good decision to add yet one more layer of protection.
We ask for your prayers as we prepare for the 2020-2021 school year, ever mindful that God is in control.
