Weekly Update – October 28

Dear Parents,

A record-breaking storm, flooding, power outages, and social media at its worst, it’s been quite a week. We always do the best we can under unexpected circumstances that present themselves to us – and this week brought us several. We are grateful for your understanding, your confidence in our safety decisions, and your patience in working through the challenges of this week. As always, we are in this together.

Weekly Update – October 7

Parents and students

Jesuit High School has been monitoring a recent rash of vandalism incidents that has had a negative impact on many middle and high schools in our county. Jesuit is no exception. This trend involves students “licking” or stealing or vandalizing school property and posting about it on social media.

Please read the full message from Dean Theodule.

We want to stress that stealing and/or vandalizing school property is a crime. This is a serious offense, and if a student is found to be stealing, in possession of stolen items, or vandalizing school property (including other people’s personal belongings) they will be subject to disciplinary measures, including suspension or expulsion, may be referred to the local police department for citation, and may be asked to pay for property repair.

Weekly Update – September 30

October means that we are in the midst of admissions season where we spend countless hours preaching about the mission of Jesuit High School and the incredible opportunities that it affords our students. Our Admissions Team is doing excellent work as they attend school visits, organize shadow days, and prepare for our Future Marauder Open Campus event on Sunday, October 17. I am especially excited about the new innovations we have built into this year’s open house. We have activated more areas of the campus, offering greater opportunities for personal interaction and a hands-on feel of what it is like to be a Marauder. 

Our current parents and students are our greatest ambassadors, so I ask that you spread the word and invite prospective families to attend! This annual event is one of the most important for spreading the word about Jesuit High School and getting people on campus to hear our story and see what it means to form Men for Others.

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.
