All In This Together


During these uncertain times, we are seeing members of our Resurrection community making a difference in tremendous ways. We are so grateful for those who are making an impact. We invite our members of our Resurrection community to share their stories about making a difference and visit our school's Facebook page to read some of these stories. We also invite parents and alumnae to share information on their businesses or services that are available as resources during these times. Our hope is to share this information with our larger community. See details HERE.

Athletic Updates
 
As noted,  athletic practices, games and events also continue to be canceled through April 30, 2020, and/or until further notice.  The Illinois High School Association (IHSA) has issued a statement stating that if and when spring sports return there will be a "practice only" period before competitive events resume. The IHSA does not know how long that practice only period would be.  Also, if and when athletics resume, the IHSA is looking at possibly pushing back state tournaments to allow for a longer season. However, at this point, the IHSA is unable to guarantee anything in terms of the spring season. See updates from IHSA HERE.
Mr. Kane plans to reschedule the Spring Collegiate Athletic Signing event, so please continue to inform him if your daughter has made a commitment to a college team. View the most recent Bandit Blast and other special announcements pertaining to Resurrection Athletics  HERE.
Summer Athletic Camps Canceled

Unfortunately, the decision has been made to cancel Summer Athletic Camps for current students and incoming freshmen. Summer leagues for current Resurrection teams may still occur and information will be shared if and when details become available from facilities that typically host summer leagues. Athletic camps for girls in grades 5 to 8 are being rescheduled for the fall. Details will be shared when they are finalized.

Student Activities
 
Upcoming scheduled student social events are currently being postponed. As a school community, we are committed to the educational, social and emotional needs of our students and we are working to ensure that student social events or other milestone events are celebrated in some way. We are exploring how events may be rescheduled or celebrated in other ways and will keep you posted as we have more information.
As of now, we are postponing the Junior Prom until a later date. Dr. P will work with Ms. Montanille and the Junior class officers to establish a new date, most likely summer or fall, for the event to take place. We are still uncertain about Senior Prom, Honors Convocation, and Graduation. We will have a decision on Prom in the coming week, as we are still working with our venue. Graduation and the Honors Convocation  will take place , but the date, time, and location may change. We hope to have a more definitive idea of the logistics within the coming weeks.
