Dear Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the Trinity High School faculty, staff, administration, and board of directors, I wish you all the blessings of the Trinity in the coming year.

I have been enjoying taking a step back from many of the school-related responsibilities, and I hope you too, have had time to rest and rejuvenate. Time spent with family can be healing time!

But it is time to roll up our sleeves and get back to it. Your Blazer will be returning to remote lessons this week. The daily schedule and expectations are outlined below. Please review these carefully. The students have done this remote learning before, and this schedule has been out for several weeks, so we hope to have 100% attendance on our first day back!

With exams right around the corner please take the steps to ensure our students are not just extending their Christmas break, but are truly back at work! Some tips for getting them ready CAN BE FOUND HERE

ALSO - while your children are preparing to return, you have a little homework as well! If you are hoping to receive financial aid for the 2021-22 school year, the financial aid application is open now, and the PRIORITY DEADLINE FOR FINANCIAL AID IS JANUARY 17. We do have a financial aid budget, and those who complete the application on time have the best chance of having their needs met. Please visit this link to begin your application: TRINITY Financial Aid APPLICATION

I am grateful to begin another new year with the Trinity community. Here's hoping this one is less eventful than the last!

Laura M. Curley
Thank You!
On behalf of all administration, faculty, and staff of Trinity High School, thank you for your generous contribution to the Christmas Appreciation Fund!

We are grateful for our Trinity Family and look forward to 2021!
Adaptive Pause: January 6-22 
We begin our Adaptive Pause upon our return from Christmas Break on Wednesday, January 6th. Wednesday will be an asynchronous learning day. Students need to indicate their attendance for the day by 8:00 AM, by completing a Google form sent by Mrs. Carey. Thursday, January 7th, and Friday, January. 8th will be synchronous learning days. 
The time has come to complete the mandatory Block 3 Learning Status Survey. All parents and guardians must complete this survey for their students, even if their learning status will remain the same.  

Please note that your decision will determine your student’s status for the duration of the Block 3, which runs from January 25, 2021, through March 25, 2021. As in Block 1 and 2, temporary switches from in-person learning to eLearning will be reserved for students who are COVID positive, quarantined due to COVID exposure, and those sick with COVID-like symptoms.  

Please CLICK HERE to complete the mandatory Block 3 Learning Status Survey that is due on January 6, 2021, by 8:00 AM. January 6th is a strict deadline because we have to plan for learning space usage based on our in-person and eLearning numbers. 

Thank you for partnering with us this year in our commitment to keeping students healthy and safe.

Mrs. Carey, Dean of Students
Mrs. Meiner, COVID-19 Data Coordinator
A Message from the Presidents of the Mothers Club and Fathers Club....
Thank You!
Celebrating the fifth year that the Mothers Club and Fathers Club co-sponsored the Christmas Appreciation Fund, we continue to be grateful for Trinity families who make it a priority to recognize the incredible administration, faculty, and staff who make Trinity such a special place for our daughters. This year especially we know how each member of the administration, faculty, and staff went above and beyond this fall to ensure that our Blazers had a safe learning experience. Thank you for acknowledging their tremendous effort and commitment. Your generous contribution helped show our gratitude for all they have done and continue to do, not just during these unique times of COVID-19, but every single day.

As we move into 2021, we remember what makes the Trinity community so awesome.

Here's to a new year!
Most appreciatively,

Kathleen Laffey, President, Mothers Club
Stephen Shelly, President, Fathers Club
