SAINT ANNE PARISH SCHOOL REOPENING PLAN LETTER

August 12, 2020

Dear Saint Anne Parish School families,

As always, we remain committed to a safe student-centered learning environment.  As you know, this school year we will be doing that by offering two main platforms of instruction:  In Person Learning and Parallel Digital Instruction.  Students engaged in In-Person Learning will be grouped into cohorts and abide by the safety procedures that we have put into place.   
 
Our Parallel Digital Instruction (PDI) will allow families who are not yet comfortable with In-Person Learning to live stream our teachers, and students to participate in the same curriculum as their in-person classmates while remaining a part of the St. Anne community. PDI learners will have the flexibility to rejoin their cohorts in person each trimester. However,  we have maintained our commitment to safety by setting up a desk for every PDI student in the classroom from the start of the school year regardless of their presence in the school!    Classroom set up  reflects that students will be sitting six feet apart! We hope that shows our commitment to every student and to safety.
 
Please review our dynamic  Saint Anne Parish School Reopening Plan  that was designed with all our stakeholders in mind - students, parents, and faculty/staff.  We are dedicated and prepared for not only a safe reopening but  it is our goal to remain open and that will take ALL of us to work together and focus on what is best for the children of Saint Anne Parish School!     In order to do so it was necessary to make adjustments to our school calendar.  Please see the details below.
