Dear St. Rita Family,
As Dr. Quaid’s letter referenced above we will be going to Remote Learning for the next two weeks until September 8, 2020. Please see the E-Learning Expectations on page 7 of the St. Rita of Cascia Opening Guide Fall 2020. The document is linked below. This will explain what your son will need to do to make the most of his E-Learning experience.
The schedule for full Remote Learning will be similar to the regular schedule except for one day. Students will have full Remote Learning on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Your son will be expected to be on Zoom, on time, for every period of the school day. Wednesday will be a day for all students to make up work that did not get completed and meet with teachers for private or semi-private Zoom sessions to provide necessary tutoring for unlearned skills or concepts. The schedule is attached to this document as well. Please print it out and place on the refrigerator and ensure your son follows his schedule.
While we prefer in-person learning we cannot look at remote learning in a negative way. This is our only alternative to keeping your son(s) and all our families safe and to continue his education at the highest level possible. We have been preparing for this eventuality all summer.
St. Rita of Cascia High School is committed to doing everything to keep our students safe. Please be our full partner with this important responsibility and encourage your son(s) to social distance and follow safety protocols at all times in and out of school. This will benefit all of us, especially your children.
God bless you and your family, stay safe, and we will see you soon.
Mr. Sante M. Iacovelli II
