ICCS to Continue On-Campus Classes After Christmas Break

Memphis-area Catholic Schools will continue to offer on-campus classes after the new year, the Catholic Diocese of Memphis announced yesterday.  The Diocese made the decision after a careful review of COVID-19 cases in the Catholic School system showed a low number of students, faculty, and staff testing positive for the virus.

Immaculate Conception Cathedral School will continue to offer families the choice to either send their children to campus or enroll in distance learning.  The full announcement from the Catholic Diocese of Memphis is below:

Dear Catholic School Parents in the Diocese of Memphis,  

 

I hope that all of you are experiencing a happy and joyful holiday season. On behalf of our Catholic Schools, we are excited to share with you our plans for the opening of our second semester. Our goal is simple, we will partner with you to provide your children with a strong Catholic education while implementing the safest procedures for the physical, social, and emotional well-being of the children.

 

The Catholic schools in our system are prepared to begin the second semester with on-campus learning as planned. We also understand that for some of our families, the option for your child to learn remotely is necessary and we are prepared to offer that as well. The last ten months have taught us the need for flexibility and vigilance as we all work together to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.  

 

Rest assured of our promise that we will continue to provide the safest environment for not only our students, but for our teachers who are the backbone of our schools.   Each of our principals will share specific details for each school later this week in anticipation of our first day back for the second semester.  We ask for your cooperation and support with the published safety procedures that each of our schools have in place.  Although our schools will open our doors for the second semester next week, because of Christmas travel or guests, if you feel it is in the best interest of your child(ren) to begin the year remotely, please communicate directly with your school administration.   

 

We celebrate the gifts and lessons learned from 2020 and look forward to what 2021 will bring!
