Today, Governor Ducey announced that all schools in Arizona will be closed through April 10th.
Beginning Monday, March 23rd, we will begin remote learning for students. The date that we are scheduled to return is April 13th, but that is subject to change based on how the pandemic unfolds. The end of the remote learning will be determined in consultation with Fr. Arnold, the Office of Catholic Schools, and the health department.
The school is regularly coordinating with Fr. Arnold, the Office of Catholic Schools, and the health department since this is a rapidly evolving situation. Please be aware that as information surfaces we will communicate changes to families as quickly as possible.
Picking Up School Supplies and Chromebooks
If you need to come to school to pick up a Chromebook or your child’s school supplies, you are welcome to come at the following times:
Information for Family Support
If you have not already done so, please complete this brief survey as soon as possible so that we can work with individual families who might need special support during this time.
Families Who Do Not Have Internet At Home
Cox is offering internet deals for families in Tucson who do not currently have internet. If you are a family who does not have internet at home, please contact Crystal Lanik at email@example.com if you would like for the school to share your information with Cox so they can discuss this opportunity with you.
If you have not already completed the survey, please complete the family support survey so we can help support you and your child. If families need to pick up school work, the office will be available each Monday from 3:30-6:00 p.m. to pick up school work each week. We ask that families drop off the work from the week prior at that time as well.
