The letter is posted at www.rosaryhs.com.
"Thank you for your continued support as we navigate the implications of the COVID-19 outbreak together and plan for a rigorous and dynamic 2020-2021 school year.
An incredibly dedicated team of Rosary faculty, staff, administrators, technology, and facilities members have been diligently exploring options to create the best plan for reopening school in August.
The team considered safety guidance from the county and state, the needs expressed by our students and teachers, technical and physical campus resources, and discussions happening in local school districts and private schools in the area.
The health and safety of our students, families, faculty, and staff is always our primary concern, as we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation.
As a faculty and staff, we are especially empathetic to our students who are missing some of the traditional Rosary High School experiences. Our goal is to continue to support the whole student -- academically, spiritually, socially, and emotionally.
We are aware of the mental toll that this transition may take, and our Campus Ministry and Guidance teams are continuously collecting support resources for our community and are ready to serve your daughter(s) when school resumes in August.
As of this writing and our current realities, we have outlined our plans for the 2020-2021 academic year in this document. Undoubtedly, plans may be updated by future developments in public health and governing guidelines.
Thank you for allowing us the privilege of educating your daughter(s) in an environment that embeds faith, excellence, leadership, and service into all that we do.
St. Dominic and St. Catherine of Siena pray for us!
Safe School Plan Scenarios
This plan includes four different scenarios that we might face this school year. We will start the 2020-2021 school year with Scenario 3 -- 100% with Modifications. If we need to move to a different scenario, communication will come from the Office of the Head of School to notify families.
Head of School McMahon will be hosting a Zoom Town Hall Meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 5.
If you would like to submit a question for the administration to answer about the plan, please submit all questions via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon Wednesday, Aug. 5.
