Dear Parents and Students,
Congratulations to our
Varsity Women's Basketball
players and coaches on a huge win this past weekend! On Saturday, the No. 2 seeded Pilots continued their quest for a state title by defeating No. 3 seeded Clovis West of Fresno (63-57) in the NorCal Open Division Regional semifinal.
With the victory, our women advance to our program's FIRST Open Division NorCal Regional title game to face perennial power in No. 1 seed and MaxPreps No. 3 ranked team in the country, Archbishop Mitty of San Jose. The NorCal title game will be played on
Tuesday, March 10 at 7:00 p.m. at Gunn High School in Palo Alto
. Let’s come out and show our Pilot Pride and cheer the team on to victory!
I would also like to take this time to reiterate a few things that were included in the Superintendent’s communication regarding the
Coronavirus outbreak, COVID-19
, that was sent the week before last.
- We continue to perform routine environmental cleaning, and have increased cleaning of frequently touched surfaces (e.g., doorknobs, handrails, light switches, countertops)
- We are speaking to students about hand washing and reminding students to wash hands with soap and water before and after lunch daily
and encouraging students to use the hand sanitizers around campus, including in the Main Office and on the Notre Dame campus.
- We continue to emphasize evidence-based preventive actions for students and staff including staying home when sick; coughing and sneezing into elbows; covering sneezes with tissues and then putting tissues into trash bins; refraining from touching eyes, nose and mouth; and washing hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and water
- Any closure will be determined by our administration and the Department of Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Oakland; should closure occur, academic continuity plans will be communicated immediately to faculty, staff, students and families.
Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns in regards to the points above.
I hope you will join me in participating in the
SJND Day of Giving
this Friday! Thank you in advance for your support as we aim to raise $25,000 for SJND in just one day!
