We will list all updates here along with suggestions regarding Covid-19 precautions.
Based on the surveys both staff and parents completed a week ago, the Archdiocese has recommended we remain open, so St. Elizabeth will be in school for the three weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas break.
Again, I remind everyone in order for all of us to stay safe, families should continue to practice social distancing. In addition, traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday requires a 14-day quarantine period before returning to school.
We will be returning to In-School classes on Tuesday January 19.
Remember, Monday January 18 is Martin Luther King Day – no class.
Please keep in mind that if you travel over the Thanksgiving break (November 26-30), a 14-day quarantine is required for students.
Remote learning will NOT be provided for these 14 days.
Our last day of in-person learning will be December 18, 2020 and we will pick up Remote Learning on January 4th, 2021 through January 15th. January 18th is a holiday and students will return to school on January 19th.
Though no one prefers remote learning to in-person learning, it does allow the opportunity to travel, get together
with family and friends, and not have to worry about quarantining upon return.
Please use this time as a chance to quarantine and NOT to extend your vacation. We are all working hard here
at school to ensure the safety of our students and we need families to help as well.
Since we would like to encourage our staff to travel and be with family over the holidays, St. Elizabeth will NOT be offering extended care for the two weeks for Remote Learning.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause families, but our faculty and staff truly deserve
time with their families during the holiday season.
