Good Afternoon Annunciation Catholic School Families,
Bishop Joseph Kopacz and Cathy Cook, Superintendent, conferred today regarding the recent executive order of Governor Reeves to close public schools across the state. They decided that it is in the best interest for the common good in our communities across the Diocese of Jackson that our Catholic Schools remain closed through April 17th. They will continue to monitor information regarding COVID-19, as well as, the recommendations and directives of national, state, and local government officials. You will be notified as additional decisions are made regarding our school.
As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 progression in our state, learning will continue virtually and/or via tangible packets. Here is a list of how learning will take place:
pk Ferraez - email packets
pk Lamar - packets
Ford - email and packets
Donoho/Howell - email and packets
Colloredo - FACTS LMS
Browning - FACTS LMS
Prewitt - Google Classroom
Moore - Google Classroom
5th - 8th - FACTS LMS
Teachers will be contacting you with more details including how to get needed resources. Those classes utilizing FACTS Learning Management System (LMS) will include details on how to access LMS along with username and password information. Please contact your child's teacher if you have not received their individual log-in information. Please visit the parent tab at the top of the screen to go to the DISTANCE LEARNING page and there is access to links there.
Just a reminder this not an extension of spring break. Teachers and students are expected to be "reporting" for school on a daily basis, even if it is virtually or packets. Thank you for your continued support. Keep doing your part to protect yourself and others by practicing social distancing.
Dear Annunciation Catholic School families:
The decision has been made to close schools and early learning centers for the week of March 23-27. The following is a link to the letter from Bishop Kopacz (click the headline of this post) that announces the suspension of all Masses and parish activities at Catholic churches throughout the Catholic Diocese of Jackson.
We continue to monitor the COVID-19 progression in our state and will determine on a week-by-week basis if schools/centers will be able to reopen the following week. Catholic School principals will communicate to you how remote learning will be implemented for your children.
Thank you for your continued support. Keep doing your part to protect yourself and others by practicing social distancing.
God bless you and your family.
Catherine D. Cook
Superintendent of Education • Diocese of Jackson
Update as of March 14, 2020
After consultation with medical and educational professionals and considering the recommendation of Governor Tate Reeves, the Diocese of Jackson Office of Education has revised the directive for the closing of schools and early learning centers to include the full week, Monday - Friday, March 16 - 20, 2020.
