Dear St. Mary School,
Thank you for your support in the last few weeks as our School and Diocese have been working hard to put together guidance that supports the CDC, ISBE, and IDPH guidelines for schools to be able to reopen in the Fall.
Attached you will find our school's plan. This plan is subject to change as necessary to make sure that we are all making sure that our school community is safe.
I want to personally thank the school reopening team that has reviewed the plan and given feedback to make sure that all parts of our school day are addressed. I also want to thank the teachers and staff of St. Mary School that have been coming in during the last two weeks to begin getting their rooms ready.
Many of our staff members are still taking professional development throughout this summer to become even more knowledgeable on how to best teach in this new "normal". At this time, the Diocese is following the recommendations of the ISBE and IDPH about the use of face coverings.
There will be a July Lancer Ledger coming at the end of the month with dates for all back to school events that include supply drop off and Back to School Night. Your teachers will be emailing any adjustments to the school supply list. Please make sure to pay attention to those emails in the next few weeks.
Continue to pray for one another and an end to the pandemic.
God love you,
