Hello St. Al's Parents,
You will be pleased to learn that Dr. Rigg, in consultation with other folks downtown and with lots of input from lots of people like me, has decided to make a ONE TIME concession to our school calendars. Students must be in session 178 days rather than the usual 180 days.
The good news is that we will need to make up only two of the Emergency Days as of now. Pray that the worst is over for this winter or that will have to change. So, here are the ways in which we will make up those two days.
We will be in session on Friday, February 15th. Monday, February 18th will be a day off for students.
Also, we will be in session the Monday after Easter, which is April 22nd. The 23rd and 24th are Staff Development Days for teachers, so there is no school for students on the 23rd and 24th.
This means our last day of school for students in grades 1-8 will be on June 7th, if no further Emergency Days are used. The last day of school for students in Preschool and Kindergarten is June 5.
For 2019-2020 the normal 180 days will be required. I am grateful for Dr. Rigg's decision for this year and for Dr. Quinn's quick approval of the make-up day proposal for St. Al's.
Please contact me directly with any questions,
St. Alphonsus Liguori, Principal
