Dear St. Francis Families,
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We are so blessed to have all of our Troubies back on campus. It has been a busy week for everyone, but the energy and enthusiasm your daughters brought back to school this week was contagious.
As we continue to acclimate to a more normal routine, I ask that you check-in with your daughters. Returning to school in-person is something we’ve all been looking forward to for the past 17-months, but it can be a little overwhelming. Reassure your daughters, and let them know that acclimating to a new routine is normal, and encourage them to speak with you or seek assistance from our Wellness and/or Guidance Department. We are here to help and want them to feel supported as we begin a new academic year.
While we care about your daughters mental and emotional well-being, we also care about their physical health. This past week, we identified some students that recently tested positive to COVID-19 and have been able to isolate them at home before returning to school. It’s important that students stay home if they are showing any cold/flu-like symptoms that may be early indicators of COVID (i.e. fatigue, cough, headache, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, fever, loss of taste or smell, etc.). Similarly, we will keep you informed of any COVID exposure that may occur while your daughters are on campus. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in keeping our students, faculty and staff safe.
Lastly, I’d like to remind you that next Thursday, August 19th, is our annual Back to School Night. I hope you’re able to join us.
St. Francis of Assisi, pray for us!
St. Clare of Assisi, pray for us!
In the spirit of Pax et Bonum (peace and goodness),
