“We're on Hiatus"

March 16, 2020

by Mr. Antoine, Principal




He said to them, “Come after me and I will
make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19




This has been quite the year. We’ve had some great moments that have strengthened both our school and churches. However, we are now entering uncharted territory with the spread of Covid-19. As you know we are receiving directives almost daily from the federal government as well as the state and diocese. This issue is very fluid and changes by the minute in some cases.

This morning I met with Father Pautler and Mrs. Hacker to discuss dates, events and protocol as we move forward. We all would urge common sense and prudence during this time while also being patient and understanding with faculty, staff and your own children.

This country has not seen this issue in over 50 years and if we remain calm, supportive and sensible, we will come through on the other side stronger, wiser and more prepared for future events.

In the end we will do our best to fill the students time during this hiatus with valuable academic rigor allowing them to strengthen their skills. I will still be available via email and phone if needed. Have a great week.
