Holy Cross Catholic School

From the Desk of Mrs.Wagner

December 18, 2020

We survived the first semester! I couldn't be more grateful for the Holy Cross community and how we have locked arms and pushed through these most unexpected challenging times. This community, not only builds lifelong friendships, but it creates a family unit. We are all in this together and that is why it is more important than ever to continue to protect our students, staff, and school families in the decisions we make over the Christmas break.

Every two weeks the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE) gives updates and this week provided schools information on guidance for the holiday break for school families. Megan Lynch, Emergency Management Planner, said "anyone who travels should assume they will contact Covid and to proceed with caution". She also stated, "anyone that mixes households should assume they have been exposed". This holiday season is difficult to navigate for all of us, but as we plan on returning to on-site learning on Monday, January 4, please keep the guidance in mind as we celebrate this special time.

As Pope Francis said, “Christmas isn’t just a temporal celebration or the memory of a beautiful (event); Christmas is more … Christmas is an encounter!” We hope that you enjoy your break as you encounter Christmas. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! We look forward to seeing you in 2021!
