From the Desk of Ms. Clark
March 25, 2021
What a difference a year makes! Who would have imagined last year at this time that our lives would be where they are today? Hopefully this pandemic has taught us to treat each day as a gift from God.
We are fast approaching the beginning of Holy Week this coming Sunday, which is Palm Sunday. On Palm Sunday, we remember Jesus’ entrance to Jerusalem, while understanding that amidst the celebrations of this entrance, Jesus knew what was to happen later that week. Palm Sunday marks the commencement of Holy Week, a week when we remember Christ’s suffering and death. Hopefully, this remembrance helps us to focus on being the best people we can be in our daily lives. Christ’s suffering was to help us to be closer to God. He modeled a life for us to emulate, particularly in the acceptance and help He gave to the outcasts and underprivileged of His time. The Resurrection of Christ is at the heart of our beliefs as Catholics. Christ was born and died for us, giving the gift of our hope and belief in everlasting life.
As our Lenten journey comes to an end and we enter Holy Week, let us be transformed knowing that what appeared to be death has become, instead, a source of life. On behalf of Monsignor Marine, Father Mike, and our faculty and staff, I wish you a blessed Easter as we rejoice in our Savior’ s love and accept his gift of abiding hope!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!
Travel Restrictions UPDATE
The Archdiocese lifted travel restrictions along with the state. I pray and hope all families continue to practice all safety protocols. As stated in my letter and advised by the Archdiocese and the Department of Health, it is more about the behaviors that are practiced rather than what state a family travels to.
If you can not practice proper safety protocols, please be sure to utilize our virtual option for ten days before sending your child back to in-person instruction. If you are traveling, please continue to contact me to determine your child’s safe return to in-person instruction.
We remain incredibly grateful for the gift of our teachers and staff. Because of their great sacrifices and love for your children, we have been able to maintain in-person instruction. We are also grateful to our parents for respecting the important role they play in ensuring the health and safety of our students.
Even though the students are permitted to wear their gym uniforms, there are a few things we have noticed that need to be addressed and corrected:
- Students need to wear the proper logo school PE shirt.
- Sweaters, sweatshirts, and fleeces may be worn on any day - but if they are not SKD logo, they have to be removed upon arrival at school.
