Good evening, STM families!
I hope this note finds you well as we move through our second full week of “Teacher Supported Online/At-Home Learning.” I want to express my gratitude to each one of you for the ways you have been supporting your students over the past two weeks. We are all navigating an unprecedented situation, and I appreciate your partnership in these unique circumstances.
Like many of you, my wife and I are continuing to work while also homeschooling our children and caring for them all day. I had no idea they could eat so much! Please know that I understand the challenges of this time, and I am praying for you daily.
As you are likely aware, the Governor has extended the "stay at home" order until April 30. I received word from our superintendent that all Catholic schools in the Diocese of Baton Rouge will follow the order and will continue to provide "Teacher Supported Online/At-Home Learning" until that date.
Our STM faculty and staff will be meeting this week to evaluate how things have gone so far, to determine how we can better serve our students and families, and to plan for the weeks following Easter. As a reminder, we will be on “Spring Break” next week, so students will not receive any assignments or communication from teachers during that time.
I hope that you and your family have a blessed Holy Week and that you are able to enter into the spirit of these sacred days as we remember our Lord’s passion and death, and as we celebrate His resurrection. If I can be of support to you or your family in any way, please feel free to contact me.
May God bless you abundantly as we continue our Lenten journey!
