Dear St. Michael Catholic School Families –

Based on recommendations from public health, state, and local leadership that support the safety of individuals in our communities, St. Michael Catholic School will continue the suspension of in-person classes at our school through April 30th.

Our teachers and staff have worked tirelessly to partner with you in ensuring the learning and growth of every child, and this effort will continue as we all work together in providing an excellent Catholic education to our students. Please know the Catholic Schools Office continues to support us and remains fully committed to strengthening school communities and upholding the enduring mission of formation of the whole child. If you have any questions or need assistance with our distance learning model, feel free to email your child’s classroom/subject area teacher or me to schedule a time for a phone call.

Yesterday, April 6th, the Governor asked that we make an extra effort for all to remain home. This will help during this time, as our nation and state reach a high point of infections and deaths. We will get through this time if we all stay strong and positive. Help your children to engage for these last two days of school and then enjoy some technology free rest with your family.

We have entered Holy Week! As we work through our last two days of school before the break, we want the students to continue to work hard and finish strong. I know that this has been a great challenge to us, one that we are confronting together. We ask that you to continue to pray for each other, our school and our nation during this Holy Week and throughout the Easter break. Our distance learning will resume on Monday, April 20th. We ask that you all be refreshed and ready to continue with your work at that time.

May our faith be deepened this Holy Week as we walk with our Lord on His way to Calvary, carrying our crosses and helping each other.

In His Precious Name,

Lionel J. Martin, Principal
