Sunday, May 17, 2020
Tomorrow begins week 9 of distance learning. In March, we never imagined virtual learning continuing into May. Thank you for your continued support and dedication throughout this process. Because of the strong parent/teacher connection and our dedicated teachers, our students have been able to continue quality learning.
During virtual learning, the teaching and the learning has been more concentrated: we do not have school assemblies, all school Mass, MAP testing or field trips to take breaks from learning in the class room. Therefore, we have decided to update our schedule for the year. Our school year will end on June 9th, but new instruction will end on May 28th for ALL students.
End of the Year Timeline:
- Friday, May 22: No School Everyone has the day off!!
- Monday, May 25: No School/Memorial Day
- Week of May 26-May 29 will be the last week of formal virtual lessons. This will be the last week with NEW assignments and lessons. Friday, May 29 will remain as a day to catch up on Specialty class assignments or to meet with a teacher for office hours via Zoom.
- Week of June 1-5 will be reserved for students to catch up on missing assignments, complete projects, or work on enrichment activities. Teachers can meet with small groups or with certain individuals if needed. Also, teachers will work on collecting and grading all work from quarter 4, begin to complete report cards and meet with teachers to plan for next year. Please note: All school work for 8th graders will be due June 3rd. Work in grades K4-7th grade will be due June 5.
- Week of June 8-9 will be for material collection, report cards and lost and found collection. We will send out a schedule to parents to register for a time slot to drop off textbooks, chromebooks and library books. A few teachers may plan a special event on one of these days. Please be sure to connect with your homeroom teacher for specific information.
- The health and safety of our students and staff is very important. At the moment, we do not have specific orders from Governor Evers regarding school in the fall. However, we are gathering information from the American Teacher Federation and the American Enterprise Institute to review several options for the fall. When we make a decision, we will take guidance from the CDC, Governor Evers, the Department of Public Instruction, the Department of Health and the Archdiocese. Once we have more information we will share that with you.
