Dear St. Joan Antida High School Community,
As we are well aware, the Southeastern Wisconsin community is now experiencing the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). As always, the health and safety of St. Joan Antida High School students are our highest priority. On the afternoon of Friday, March 13, Wisconsin State Governor Tony Evers issued an order mandating the statewide closure of all K-12 schools, public and private, as part of the state's response to the virus. The statewide mandated closure is effective Wednesday, March 18.
St. Joan Antida High School will be in session on Monday, March 16, from 7:30 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. We will then extend our Spring Break from March 17-27, 2020. Beginning Monday, March 30, we will transition to virtual learning which will continue through Friday, April 3. As the statewide mandate indicates, we will evaluate the status of in-person learning at that time.
On Monday, March 16, students will attend all classes. This will allow our teachers to give students instructions on virtual learning via Google Classroom. If students do not have personal devices allowing them to access virtual learning from home, they can check out a school Chromebook to keep with them during the closure. (For those who would like information regarding internet access within your homes, we will be sending information on Monday regarding options being offered by Comcast and Spectrum at reduced rates.) Students will be expected to participate in all classroom activities and tasks during the virtual learning period. Additional information will be communicated to students at school on Monday to ensure a smooth transition to the virtual learning environment. At any time during the closure, parents may reach out to me directly via cell phone at (262) 320-7898 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During this time, we continue to pray for the gift of you each day and ask that you join us in praying for the safety of all impacted by the current health crisis.
Ms. Elizabeth Lingen, '93
