Timely Reminders Including Traffic, Mitigation and Upcoming Opportunities

MASKING – As we begin to see school closures locally and across the country, we want to continue to be attentive to our mitigation efforts. While most of our students have been excellent in their cooperation with wearing masks properly while indoors, our teachers and staff are finding that some students need a constant reminder. Students in this situation may be asked to leave the classroom and report to the Dean’s Office during class if they are in need of a constant reminder. We also ask that you help to make sure your son brings a properly functioning mask and a backup mask to school each day. 

TRAFFIC – Another good reminder as we begin to find our rhythm in this school year is ensuring you take sufficient time in the morning to avoid being tardy. As more schools begin to open and fewer families are carpooling, traffic seems to have increased throughout the area. Please account for possible traffic delays in your commute to ensure on-time arrival.

We once again want to thank our students and families for the manner in which you have partnered with Jesuit to maintain a safe and open campus.

Weekly Update – August 26

This is a good time to remind families of some basic expectations as they relate to our COVID mitigation. Please keep students home from school when sick and notify our school nurse of any positive cases or exposures in your family. This has been working well so far and we appreciate the support and communication from our families. We have seen relatively few cases in our school community since the start of the school year.

If we do start to see cases rise in our school community, Jesuit may ask that all students show proof of vaccine or provide a recent negative COVID test as an added layer of safety. Families will be notified in advance, will be given plenty of time to provide proof of vaccine or negative test. Using this tool as an occasional layer of mitigation will help us to be safe, minimize exposures and quarantines, and ensure that the campus can remain open for all students, faculty, and staff. Again, we share this as a possible option should the school feel it is a necessary step.

A back-to-school update and "tool kit"

Parents and Friends,

The excitement for the start of the 2021-22 school year is growing, and our planning for the opening of school is nearly finalized. I am pleased to report that our staffing is fully complete. With several new faculty and support staff joining us next month, the physical campus is getting its final touches for our full return. The enhancements to our many programs are being finalized. As we have stated before, we are confident that Jesuit High School will emerge from the experience of the last 17 months stronger than before.

Update

Staying Connected – April 23

Dear Parents and Students -

This spring has been especially fulfilling for those of us on campus. Fr McGarry reminded the faculty and staff at our meeting this morning that spring is always a time for us to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus together. In addition to the joy of recently being able to experience the Eucharist in the Chapel for the first time this year, I have rejoiced in the increase of students on campus during the school day as well as the swell of extracurricular activities that has injected new life into campus.

As we enter the final quarter of this unprecedented school year, we are shifting our focus now to the planning of our end-of-year events and the return of more activities, reflecting our county’s move into the red tier. We do this as we continue to provide in-person instruction for all students in the safest manner possible.

One year later

Dear Parents, Students, Faculty, Staff, and Friends:

As we post this, our nation has been in the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic for more than a year. Today marks the day in 2020 on which we informed you that our school campus would close and we would shift to digital learning.

Throughout this past year, our country has experienced fear, anxiety, isolation, confusion, heartbreak and loss due to this devastating virus. We pray for those who have died because of COVID-19 and for their loved ones who mourn and grieve.
