Dear Parents and Guardians,

You may have heard some news in the media regarding a potential pivot to virtual learning after the Christmas break.  At this time – nothing has been confirmed.   There are things that we all can do to help ensure we have a safe return to school.  Please follow the Public Health and Government’s guidelines of  restricting your interactions with only the household bubble and continue to monitor your health for COVID symptoms.   We are all in this together!

In order to be prepared for both face-to-face and virtual learning, we are taking some steps to ensure we are ready to support everyone’s learning. We are sending home materials from the school to ensure that students will be able to continue their learning from home, should they need to. All indoor shoes and personal items will be sent home as well.

If you requested a Chromebook during parent/teacher interviews, one will be sent home with your child today, Dec. 18th.  We have a limit of one per family at this time.    These Chromebooks are being loaned to you and will need to be returned to the school when we return to face to face learning in January.

Action Items For Parents:

Be ready to receive children’s school supplies and set them aside for safe keeping should we begin virtually on January 4th, 2021. If we return to school on Jan 4th, face-to-face, please bring the materials back to school on the first day.

Keep Checking Newswire for important updates over the Christmas Holiday for information about our return.

Please be aware that if students are online learning in the new year, attendance will be taken daily.  Your child will be expected to sign on to their google classroom and participate in lessons and assignments.

We appreciate your support during these challenging times.

Together we are making a difference in the lives of the St. Bernadette students!

Sincerely,

Vic Longo – Principal
