A message from the Principal:
Preparing for the Break and Quarantine Updates
Good Afternoon, Everyone,
I'm writing to let you know that we are sending students home today with their baskets and Chromebooks in the event that we must be remote after the holiday break.
We are doing everything possible to remain open and there is no doubt the quarantine management and contact tracing is a full-time job by itself. Though we have had no positive cases in the school, it will only be a matter of time if we are not extremely cautious. We are not in a bubble. There are members of the St. Joe's and Cardinal Lacroix communities that are extremely sick.
St. Joe's families have done an exceptional job of communicating with us and for that I am grateful. Please continue to do so in the days that follow this Thanksgiving holiday by letting us know if someone in your household tests positive for COVID19, which will warrant direct-contact quarantine for your child. I implore you to temper your holiday plans so that we can remain in-person but more importantly, so that you and I can all remain healthy. Please pray for families among us scared and weary right now about loved ones who may be struggling with this illness.
We are planning for a return to school on Monday, but as a leader, I must have a contingency and by sending students home with their materials, we will be prepared for an alternative plan. If we must quarantine a disproportionate number of students or staff or are informed of new positive cases, we may need to inform you of a turn to remote learning. We are getting new information each day. I ask that you continue to partner with us in several ways:
1) Read through the latest updates of the COVID safety plan (Reopening Plan) on our website. Updates are in red. Assure that you understand the CDC definition of "close contact".
2) Report all absences on our website "Attendance Form".
3) Please wear masks and distance as much as possible if you do gather at Thanksgiving.
4) Please help your child follow through with the Quarantine Plan to help them stay engaged.
5) Sign the TECHNOLOGY CONTRACT if you would like your child to borrow a Chromebook in the event of remote learning. We have sent this out and many are signed, but if you have not done so, please print and send it in with students. In the event that we must be remote, please bring it upon notice of pick-up times.
Please be well and Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
