Pray for our Country
It has been said that there will not be peace in the world until there is peace in people’s hearts. I ask that you join our staff and me as we seek to cultivate an authentic language of love and friendship among our school community. Above all else, please join us by praying for our school and our country. Tonight (10/15), the parish is hosting an Adoration Holy Hour at 6:30. Please consider attending and joining as they pray the Patriotic Rosary for our country.
When will SJB return?
We are blessed that there have been no known cases of COVID-19 spread at our school. This tells us that our current mitigation plans are working because of the cooperation of our students, parents, and staff. Given the external factors in our community, we are committed to maintaining this level of vigilance and reflecting on ways to increase these practices. Our school COVID-19 team is meeting to review our school safety protocols and identify places where we can make adjustments. The GRACE medical team will review the plans that we put together. Following their approval and a thorough review of our staff and students’ health, we will aim to open before the end of October.
There have been classrooms quarantined in the past weeks, and these quarantines will continue in the future if someone with a positive COVID-19 case comes into contact with our classrooms. The past two weeks have taught us that we are ready to toggle to virtual instruction if we are forced to because of this situation. We are likewise reminded of the importance of monitoring our health, staying home if we are not well, and being cautious with our behavior in the community.
We are still monitoring the health of our students
To help us maintain accurate data to make a swift decision to return to school, we need you to continue to report your health-related to COVID-19. Accurate data will help us re-open our school sooner.
