After hearing some feedback from our parents, students, faculty, and in consultation with the Academic Council, we have decided to cancel Remote Learning for this Friday, April 3.
One of our faculty members said it best: Our hope in canceling classes for Friday is to provide everyone with the opportunity to "absorb what we've learned, seek clarification, exercise, read, pray, or relax."
Please note the following guidelines for Friday, April 3:
I know this decision is coming to you "at the last minute", so I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. The idea is to offer everyone in our school community an opportunity to catch up on work if we've fallen behind or to simply unplug, step away from your technology, and take advantage of a mental break. Our faculty will have a virtual Faculty Meeting on Thursday afternoon so that they, too, can take advantage of Friday’s opportunity.
Additionally, our Guidance Counselors have been working to provide the same open door they’ve always strived to offer your sons. You will receive an email on Friday from Mrs. Joneil Galey, our Guidance Department chair, that will contain a lot of information and resources to help both you and your son as we continue to navigate these uncertain circumstances.
I pray that you are all doing well. As always, please let me know if I can do anything for you.
Your partner in Mission,
Ryan Gallagher ‘00
