Staying Connected – Oct 23
We are back on our campus and looking forward to upcoming events!
Parents and Friends,
We have concluded our first week of our phased return to campus using the hybrid learning model. We were delighted to see our students on campus, engaging with their peers, and attending classes. We had over 800 students on campus and screened almost 900 students and employees. It is helpful to think about this as just the beginning. Each week we will learn more and discover how to enhance the daily student experience.
There is no doubt that the campus atmosphere is different from when we left in March. The mask wearing, the distancing, the smaller class sizes, and the dual-delivery teaching in the hybrid model create a more subdued and even quiet school day. You will see below some additional information to assist in your student’s on-campus return as we move into week two.
By being patient and resilient, we will become more adept at living and learning in this environment. I find it helpful to remind myself that all the work we are doing to reintegrate safely is more than just a series of protocols and tasks; it is a commitment to one another and an investment in the greater community. It is truly an expression of being Men and Women With and For Others.
Additionally, our Jesuit community is finding more and more ways to engage and come together through events and happenings. I hope that you embrace some of these upcoming opportunities that we have included in this week’s Staying Connected and also bookmark our school calendar to keep up to date.
