    Good morning AC-

    Happy Spring!

    Today is DAY F. Students should complete work for Mods 5-6-7-1-2. Students should plan on about 45 minutes of work in each class. Please be sure to reach out to teachers with any questions or issues that arise, including the time required to complete work. All emails will be answered by 3pm each day. Teachers will be reaching out to students and families where work is not being submitted

    We would like everyone, parents and students, to complete this survey about our online learning to date. 

    Third quarter will end, as planned, on March 27th. Students should bear in mind, then, the importance of completing this work during our time away from each other. Failure to complete work will negatively affect student’s grades.


    The point of closing schools and social distancing is to contain this virus. Students and families should stay home as much as possible. This is not the time to be getting extra work hours or gathering with others. Here, again, is a link to an article on social distancing.


    With the increased volume of coronavirus-related emails, comes an increase in malicious emails. Since many cybercriminals use a sense of urgency, emotional appeal, and social engineering to get people to share information, we thought you’d find the Tips to Avoid Coronavirus Fishing Scams by Consumer Reports helpful. It includes quick tips to help sort good information from bad information and detect potential phishing emails.  Remember, cybercriminals count on email recipients being distracted, concerned, and motivated to get information. Please remember to remain vigilant and protect your data.



    • The Catholic Parishes of Arlington are broadcasting Mass each day at 12pm on their Facebook page, please tune in for some solace during the suspension of in person celebrations of the Mass. You can view the Mass after it is finished as well.

    • Our tentative return date is still slated for April 6, 2020. 

    • The MIAA has set a spring sports start date of April 27, 2020.

    • In consideration of CDC guidelines limiting the size of social gatherings, we are making the difficult decision to cancel the Spring Fling, Junior Prom, and Senior Prom. This was a difficult decision that we know hit hard yesterday. We are hopeful that we can find some alternative social gathering at a later date.

    • As mentioned yesterday, the enrollment deadline has been pushed to 4/17 and all fees waived. Please help us plan by completing this process as soon as possible.

    • Please continue to sign up for courses for next year. April 3rd is the deadline to choose courses for next year. This deadline is incredibly important. Please reach out to teachers and guidance counselors with any questions. Completed worksheets can be returned when we all come back to school.

    Prayer: The message from Cardinal Sean (repeated above) encouraged the recitation of the Rosary.  Here is a link to remind us how to pray this powerful prayer.
