Parent Information

March 27, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you are all aware, the Covid-19 is continuing to spread. In accordance with State requirements and the mandate from the Diocese of Gallup, school will remain closed for the remainder of the year.

We will continue making packets of work and will have a schedule ready for you on Monday, April 6th.

Student packets for the week of April 6th will be ready for pick up between 12 and 1 PM on Monday, April 6th. All work in the packets which were picked up on Monday, March  23 are due on the 6th of April. 

The 4 weeks of closure will take us to the middle of the 4th quarter. Students are accountable for all work, to the best of their ability, in order to pass to the next grade. Food packages will also be ready.

We are grateful for any assistance you can give your student(s). We are also aware of the burden this may be putting on you since you may still be working and are not able to spend a great deal of time overseeing the students’ work. We are asking for the work in the core subjects which are required for advancement to the next grade. Teachers, who know their students, will be able to grade according to the work completed. 

Please be assured teachers will be fair in their assessment. We have no desire to retain students due to this state of emergency, but we also must have some basis on which to make academic decisions. 

PLEASE CONTACT TEACHERS WITH ANY CONCERNS YOU MAY HAVE. TEACHERS’ CONTACT INFORMATION FOLLOWS. ACCORDING TO OUR SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY, PARENTS MUST BE PRESENT IF A STUDENT MAKES THE CONTACT WITH A QUESTION OR PROBLEM.

UPDATE: March 19, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We are expanding student work drop off and pick up hours to 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Please remember that we are just beginning quarter 4. The work is mandatory so that students can complete the year and move on to the next grade. 

The coronavirus is a very serious health threat and, based on the growing number of cases in the U.S., it is possible that we may be closed more than three weeks. I make this point only to emphasize the necessity of completing work that is sent home and that it be returned to school on schedule. Teachers, of course, will be grading the work. 

We will also be sending home lunch food as we did last week, during the 11-2 time frame.

Thank you for cooperating in this effort to stay healthy and to keep on learning!

Many blessings,

Madeline Lyon

Principal
