Updates for Our Families

A great week of learning! No school on Monday, Oct. 12th

Dear Parents,

Thank you for a great week of learning! As our second week of school comes to an end, we want to address some new questions as well as some recurring ones.

Teacher Coverage
Emergencies will happen; teachers will get ill – that can’t be avoided. Unlike a bricks-and-mortar setting where an adult must be physically present with students for safety reasons, teachers in virtual settings can record/post lessons and work for students to complete. 

When teachers will be absent for an extended time, we will, whenever and wherever possible, assign a substitute who will work with the absent teacher to ensure continuation of instruction. In fact, that occurred in one of our classes this past week.

Device/Books Pick-Up Schedule
If you have previously requested a device, we have your name listed and will be providing you personally with information on when you can pick up your device. If you missed a book pickup, you can receive them during device distribution.

Calendar Announcements
Please note, due to the holiday, there is no school Monday, Oct. 12th.

We are planning for a Back to School/Curriculum event to be held towards the end of the month. It will not occur for STADLP on October 14th as previously indicated in the Diocesan Academic Calendar.

We wish you an enjoyable and blessed weekend!
