Welcome back and I hope that you were all able to enjoy an extended vacation last week. Thanks to all our teachers who worked diligently on Homestead Studies to ensure that we were prepared for such an event. And thank you to the parents who graciously supported the closure decisions, in accordance with our handbook. We may not always agree with the outcome, but you can rest assured that I will always have the safety and security of your children at the heart of every decision that I make. 

You may have noted that the snow was tough on our outdoor classroom tents. We have hired a tent contractor who is exploring how to best restore the outdoor compound. Until we remedy the tent collapse, we are utilizing the cafeteria, gym, the Cathedral’s Burke Hall, and our classrooms to maintain our six foot mitigation requirements for when students have their masks down to eat. While not as optimum as our Outdoor Classrooms, this arrangement is critical to the health and safety of our students, especially during the Omicron variant spike. We will also continue to enjoy lunch recess and I encourage available parents to sign up for recess duties. 

As a recent empty nester, I pray that every parent values every moment with their child. Way too soon, you will long for extra snow days, homework time at the dining room table, pressing school uniforms and prepping lunch boxes. The time is fleeting; please take advantage of it! A good way to start: Friday’s a half day; Monday’s a holiday.

At the close of the Christmas holiday season, and in lieu of some recent losses, I encourage you to laugh a bit longer, hug a bit more often and continue to smile with regularity; albeit, under that mask. Remember, God is Good. 

Chat soon,
Cath
