Remote Learning Day 13
Greetings, Parents and Guardians!
We have reached the end of our third week of remote learning. The 3rd Marking Period closes today, and Monday begins the 4th Marking Period. I am sure that you are your children are looking forward to having the weekend to refresh, renew, and recharge!
On Sunday, we enter the holiest week of the liturgical year, Holy Week. The Holy Week liturgies and Easter Sunday Masses are my favorite of the liturgical year, and it will seem very strange not to be physically present in church. How grateful I am for the opportunity to participate through livestream, and I hope that you and your family will be able to do so as well.
Next week, will be a short week for remote learning, Monday – Wednesday. The teachers are planning to incorporate a “retreat day” atmosphere for the students on Wednesday, which we would have done if we were in school. This will help to prepare them for the rest of Holy Week/Easter.
In the spirit of keeping you up to date, as of the April 3 guidance from Governor Murphy, there is no intention to assess the reopening of “all public, private, and parochial schools until at least April 17.” We were originally scheduled to open on April 20, but will not be able to do so unless the Governor indicates that schools may open. At this point, we will continue to plan for remote learning. April 8 – April 19 is our scheduled Easter break and there will be no classes during that time.
It is with sadness that I share the decision to cancel all of our scheduled field trips for this year. In addition to buses and venues already cancelling, it is prudent to remain on the safe side of participating in large group gatherings. While I know that your children will be disappointed, it is the right decision at this time. When we return to school, we will discuss what we might be able to do as a school community.

Maybe during the weekend, you and your family can pray the Stations of the Cross and create thank you cards for our health care workers at AtlantiCare. You can take a picture and send to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, again, for your support during these days. Enjoy the weekend and I hope that you and your children are able to spend time outside!!
God’s richest blessings,
