Dear SJDR Families,
Please know of my continued prayers over the summer months, that your days may be safe, healthy, and filled with joy! A few weeks ago, I wrote to you informing you that SJDR plans to return to full-time in-person instruction beginning August 10th and that we would be releasing additional details regarding that plan. Our SJDR Return to School (RTS) Family Guide found here, delivers on that promise for more details.
We recognize that our school year will look and feel very different than years before, but the SJDR leadership team has worked hard on developing re-entry plans that allow for flexibility in a very fluid situation and transparency for families. Our plans prioritize the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, while remaining true to our beliefs and values related to educating the mind and heart of our saints. SJDR is currently preparing for the campus to open with students in August based on local and Diocesan guidelines and regulations.
In addition to having the option to attend full-time on campus, the Florida Department of Education issued an emergency order on Monday permitting private schools to offer remote learning to our families. This remote learning will not look like distance learning from the spring of 2019-20, but instead instruction will be provided live following our regularly scheduled school hours. Please review the RTS Family Guide carefully for more information regarding this option.
Yours in Christ, Our Teacher,
