Happy Easter Season,
I hope that you had a wonderful Easter. I pray that you and your family are well and safe during these challenging times. Our teachers continue to work hard to educate your students via online academics. As you know the Governor has told us that online academics will continue for the rest of the current school year. It is also no surprise that the school year schedule has been altered and the end of the school year will be affected by these drastic changes. As I have said before, you probably have more questions than I have answers, but I hope the following information will answer a few of your questions.  
  • The last day of online instruction for students in grades PreK through 8th grade will be on May 19th. All assignments will be due to teachers on May 20th no later than 10:00am.
  • There will be no semester exams for grades 6-8.
  • 4th nine weeks grades will count towards overall GPA.
  • Drop off of textbooks and school owned materials, as well as pick up of personal student items will be scheduled on May 20th - 22nd. A schedule will be provided in the following weeks.
  • Report Cards will be emailed the week of May 25th.
  • At this time, we are hoping to conduct a virtual end of the year awards assembly. Details are forthcoming.
  • 8th grade closing ceremony: As of today, we intend to have a closing ceremony sometime this summer when it is safe to gather. We want to be able to recognize and celebrate our 8th grade students' accomplishments before they begin their high school years.
  • Cheer and Dance tryouts will be rescheduled for some time during the month of May. An email from the moderators will be sent to all 5th, 6h, and 7th grade girls in the coming weeks. 
All of us at St. George appreciate your help and understanding during these crazy times. Together we will work through this and come out stronger in the end. I know it has been difficult on all of our families. If you need assistance, I am here to serve you please feel free to contact me at if I can be of help.
God bless,
Jack Nelson
