Dear Parents,

What a wild Catholic Schools Week!  Did we really expect anything else in 2020-2021?  I hope that everyone was able to rest, relax, and recharge a bit during the snow day on Monday.  Due to the inclement weather and eLearning at the beginning of this week, please note that we will still accept donations for our care packages through tomorrow.  Thank you, as always for your generosity and kindness with this project.

Believe it or not, we are celebrating our 100th day of school this Tuesday, February 9th!  The entire school may participate in an out of uniform Wildcat Spirit Day to celebrate.

Please note that we will host a Zoom session with Fr. Matt and myself discussing the Vision for the School on February 23rd at 7:00pm.  If you have any questions or concerns you wish to hear about that evening, please email me directly ahead of time or you may reach out to our PTO president Mrs. Karen An at karenx81@gmail.com so she can collect them and present them anonymously should you prefer to do so.  This meeting is meant to encourage dialogue and discussion so please do speak up either that evening or ahead of time and we will make sure to address your questions or concerns.  

Thank you for your continued diligence and support throughout this pandemic to do our best, as a community together, to keep our students and families as safe as possible.

Best,

Adrianne Jewett, Principal

From the Clinic: If you or a family member signed up for the Commonwealth of Virginia COVIDWISE app and received a  COVIDWISE notification of an exposure, you (family member enrolled who was exposed) do indeed need to quarantine, just as you would if you got a call from the Health Department identifying you as a close contact to someone who tested positive for COVID 19. The notification will tell you how many days previously the exposure was and then you will need to complete the remaining days of a 14 days quarantine. Therefore, if the exposure was six days ago, you would quarantine for the following eight days. Should this happen, please call the clinic immediately and we will help you with how to proceed. Students continue to be screened daily. They should NOT come to campus if they (or a family member) answer yes to any question including recent exposure without discussion with the clinic nurse first.
