    Daily Update, 4/7/2020

     

    Good morning AC-

     

    Our daily opening prayer at AC: Loving God, as I begin this day, help me to live my life to the best of my ability. To be open to those who love me. To respond to those who need me. To forgive those who hurt me. To be especially kind to others with my words and actions. And to appreciate the world in which we live. Saint Agnes, Pray for us. In Jesus’ name. Amen. 

     

    Today is B Day. Students should only complete work for Mods 6-7-1-2-3.  Parents and students should be consistent in checking email and the online gradebook for notifications about missing assignments. Teachers may be willing to extend deadlines, but communication from students is essential about work that may be missing or late. Students who are non-responsive will likely find these opportunities reduced. 

     

    We thank the students who completed the survey and will accept responses through today. A few areas of concern were raised by a few students and we are working to address those. Please email Mr. Naughton right away if teachers are not posting work on time, if teachers are posting work on days that class does not meet or if teachers are requiring work due before 9pm or with any other concerns. He will address them immediately with teachers. 

     

    Everyone should continue to practice social distancing and stay home as much as possible. In addition to the school building, all fields in the town of Arlington (including the AC Turf Field) are closed until further notice; there should be no gatherings of any kind on the fields. 

     

    We have begun the scheduling process based on course requests. We will be in touch with families if there are issues with courses chosen as we begin to schedule students.

    Announcements:
     

    We know that many may wish to reach-out for pastoral care. The priests of St. Agnes Parish are available via phone (781-648-0220), email, or a number of video conference platforms, such as Google Chat and Zoom. Their contact info is available at CPARL.org.  There are other resources and programs (including a program for HS students, Faith in an Anxious World that is Zooming on Mondays) that might be helpful to individuals and families on the site as well. Each day you are prayed for at the Facebook Live Mass broadcast from Saint Agnes Church each day at 12pm. 
     

    This week is Holy Week. Information was emailed home last Friday and is posted at cparl.org for our local parishes. Your parish is also likely offering a variety of online services at this time. 
     

    The enrollment deadline is 4/17, fees already paid will be credited to the tuition balance. Please help us plan by completing this process as soon as possible.
