|FROM THE DESK OF MS. BRESLER... |
As mentioned in last week's newsletter, there was a meeting with Julianne Nesbit, a representative of the Clermont County Health Department, Thursday after school for all non-public schools in our area. We were told that it was very unlikely that Governor DeWine would close schools on a statewide basis as he did in March. If anyone would have jurisdiction over closing schools in our area it would be the Clermont County Health Department. She assured us that she felt the schools, in general, were doing a wonderful job of keeping students safe while in their buildings.
She felt that the schools would probably go virtual themselves due to circumstances in their buildings (too many students or faculty out, lack of subs to put in the classrooms for teachers who were sick/quarantined, etc...) that would make it impossible to stay open in-person, before the Health Department would issue a mandate to close. We are not at this point at St. Veronica.
Ms. Nesbite also mentioned that the Health Department was behind in contact tracing due to the increased volume of cases in our area. This makes it even more important and imperative that families keep the school notified if a student or their family has had contact with COVID-19. By isolating students that may have been exposed, we are keeping everyone safer and the school open. Please contact the school office with any information or questions you may have.
DEADLINE FOR VIRTUAL CLASSES:
Do not forget that this Friday, November 6th, is the deadline to let the office know your decision for the second trimester. If we do not hear from you we will assume that you are staying status quo, whether it is virtual or in-person.
HIGH SCHOOL INFORMATION:
Most local Catholic High Schools have started their open houses and admission process. Click Here

Due to Covid -19 and social distancing, we will not have our annual Veterans Day Prayer Service and breakfast. We will however, continue to honor our Veterans, with the Veterans Wall of Honor. The wall consists of military photos, sent in from our parish and school families, of their special family members who have served or currently serve our country. We have saved all the photos from the previous years. Any new photos sent in will be copied and returned to you. Please put the person's name and branch of the military they served in, and please remember to put your name and where to return the photos. The photos may be sent to the parish office or the school office by November 6, 2020. Pictures can also be sent via e-mail to Jbetz@stveronica.org
