Dear Saint James School families,
We recently received notice that Manchester Public Schools will be closed effective Monday, March 16th. In keeping with what we have been communicating in our daily emails this week, Saint James School will begin implementing Distance Learning, with students being given the tools to continue their studies at home.
Tomorrow (Friday) will still be a day off for Saint James School students. Only faculty and staff will report to school on Monday, at which time we will be finalizing the plans we have been working on in preparation for this seemingly imminent announcement. No students should come to school on Monday. Instead, all families are asked to wait for a communication from the school with details on how each grade will be implementing their Distance Learning plans.
Distance Learning will continue until further notice.
Similarly, we have decided to cancel all school activities for the month of March, which includes the basketball banquet, Soiree, STEM Night, Father/Son Event, and Prospective Family Open House. Please bear with us as we work through possibly rescheduling these events for a later date.
As you know, this is uncharted territory for not only our school but the entire country. The administration of Saint James School is committed to giving our students the opportunity to continue their learning momentum while doing what we can to keep our community members safe.
We thank you for your patience and support during this time.
Bridget Zorger, Principal
