After consulting with the Diocese of Jackson Department of Catholic Education and reviewing the most recent recommendations by many different professional groups, we feel it is in the best interest of our students and faculty/staff to delay our first day of school until August 17th. With the addition of the Distance Learning Option, we need a little more time to prepare for the best environment possible for academic achievement whether that be in-person or virtually. This week will also give opportunities for teachers to go over new routines and expectations as well as assess students. In addition to a delayed start, we will be on a hybrid schedule for the first week of school. Hybrid Group 1 will report to school on Monday and Tuesday and Hybrid Group 2 will report to school on Wednesday and Thursday. Your student will not participate in distance learning on the days they do not attend school during the hybrid week. Wednesday, August 19th, will be a 3:00 dismissal to assure that both groups receive equal instructional time.
Those registered for the Distance Learning Option are not assigned to a hybrid group. The Distance Learning Option will begin on August 24th. As soon as the Distance Learning Option Plan and agreement is finalized you will receive via email.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the safest possible environment for an after hours program at this time. We will reevaluate and make a decision regarding offering after hours by September 1st.
Starkville bus information will be sent out Monday, August 3rd.
Lunch orders will begin the week of August 31st.
