Principal's Newsletter to Stakeholders

Saint Family


We started the second semester without many issues. Unfortunately after the second week back we did see an increase in COVID positive cases. We continue to encourage students to socially distance as well as wash hand regularly. Everyone is required to wear a mask at all times.

Our second benchmark (PMA2) in December for ELA, Biology, U.S. History and Mathematics showed promise as we made a small increase on our overall progress. Next month we will start ramping up our comprehensive direct tutoring and standardized preparation initiatives such as Night School, Take-Home Packets, Achieve/Gizmo Competitions, and Teams Training all aimed at providing additional academic support for students.
