Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope this letter finds you well and I thank you for your continued patience, support, and partnership throughout the weeks of our hybrid model of learning.  In the news, recently, we have seen an uptick in cases of Covid-19 and have heard of several schools in the area (both public and Catholic) going to 100% virtual learning platforms.  I am proud to say that our approach, albeit slow and steady, seems to be working, allowing for in-person instruction and for sports to remain as scheduled.  We do recognize the need to bring entire grade levels together at the same time; doing so promotes unity, builds friendships, and strengthens the Brotherhood.

I am pleased to say that we are planning to launch the idea of entire grade levels coming together on a single day.  We will implement this initiative starting next Friday, October 30.  Please note, this initiative is not for students who are participating in the 100% remote learning option.   Next Friday, October 30, we invite the entire 9th grade  (both group A and group B) to campus for a day of prayer service, in-person instruction, and an opportunity for unity and comradery.  All 10th, 11th, and 12th graders will participate in virtual learning on this day.  On Fridays ahead, we will offer this initiative for the other grades. Please see below for the schedule.

 Dates  In-Person  Virtual
 Friday, October 20  9th Grade  10th, 11th and 12th grades
 Friday, November 6  11th and 12th grades  9th and 10th grades
 Friday, November 13  10th grade  9th, 11th and 12th grades


We thank you for your support and words of encouragement as we continue to partner together to provide the best possible learning environment for our students during these uncertain times.  May God bless you and your family.

May God bless you and your family.

Deus Vult,
