Distance Learning Update: Week 3 MORE
Distance Learning Update: Week 3
Dear Delone Catholic Families, I received an update from Superintendent Breen this afternoon regarding the Diocesan response to Governor Wolf's order to extend the closure of school indefinitely. "'All Pennsylvania schools will remain closed until further notice,' the PDE's website reads. So, we will follow suit and keep doing what we are doing . . . . 'until further notice.' Since President Trump has said that social distancing will be in effect through April, May would likely be the soonest possible in-person return." As such, our staff will continue to conduct distance learning with every effort to improve delivery as we go forward. Our teachers completed a technology survey over the weekend so that we can better assess their needs at this time, and we will be reviewing the data provided by students and parents to implement effective changes. Thank you for taking the time to complete the family survey that was shared in Sunday's update. If you haven't had a chance to complete it yet, please do so by tonight at 9 p.m. as it will aide us greatly in our planning for the weeks ahead. Please note the following changes being implemented: to reduce the stress our students are undergoing at this time, final examinations for all classes will be eliminated for this year. Additionally, the Delone Catholic requirement that every student enrolled in an AP course must take the AP exam is waived for this academic year as well. It is the students' option to take their corresponding AP examinations as per the directives from the CollegeBoard. Additionally, we are working on a modification of our Works of Mercy Program to be shared as soon as it is ready. As we move into next week, Monday, April 6, will be a teacher in-service day, Tuesday and Wednesday until noon will be days of instruction (please remember that all 3rd quarter assignments/assessments missing from March 16 through March 27 are due at noon on April 8). There will be no instruction on April 9, April 10 or April 13, so that families can have time together to reflect on the blessings of the Easter season and enjoy our holy days. May you continue to stay healthy; may God bless you, and may our prayers be answered. Sincerely, Richard La Rocca Principal
