Dear Aquinas, St. Mary’s, and Holy Family Parents,
The Nebraska Department of Education has just directed all schools in the state to close by the end of the week. The schools of ESU 7, including Aquinas-St. Mary’s Catholic, (including Holy Family ELC) David City Public and East Butler Public Schools have decided to make to tomorrow, March 17th the last day of school for the week. Students will not be coming to school this Wednesday until further notice. We have been told to plan on being out of school for the next 6-8 weeks, but that they will re-evaluate that every two weeks. It is your decision to send your child to school tomorrow or not, but we will be in session.
Teachers will be reporting to school this Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday in order to get things ready for online learning during the time of school closure. If teachers need to get things organized for their own child care needs, they can stay home on Wednesday and come back to school on Thursday.
If families need assistance with meals during this time away, we want to be able to help where we can. Please contact Mrs. Jenny White at Jenny-White@cdolinc.net by this Wednesday (March 18th) at noon.
Thank you and God bless,
