COVID-19 UPDATE: Letter from Archdiocese of Newark Office of Catholic Schools
March 31, 2020
Dear Seton Hall Prep Community,
Governor Murphy’s executive order directs that all schools will remain closed until it is deemed by health officials safe to re-open. The governor has made it known that any consideration about re-opening schools will not take place until April 17th, at the earliest. Any statement about a date for re-opening schools is merely speculation at this point.
Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Newark will continue remote learning as long as the governor’s executive order is in effect. As we move into April, our schools will observe their scheduled Easter break. During the Easter break, remote learning will be suspended. This “time off” will provide everyone with a much-needed break from school and schoolwork. The administration and teachers in our schools made an abrupt, yet extremely successful transition to remote learning. They need time to catch their breath and prepare for the very real possibility that remote learning will continue well after Easter break.
Remote Learning Protocol To Continue
At The Prep, we will continue the Remote Learning Protocol that began this morning through the duration of the state mandated closure. A reminder to please reference the Framework for Distance Learning (attached at the bottom of this section) that students and parents can use as a guide as we continue our Remote Learning Protocol as well as a slideshow to walk you through the "do's" and "do not's" and what your typical days will look like during this protocol.
* REMINDER: IF YOU HAVE ANY ISSUES COMPLETING YOUR TASKS/ASSIGNMENTS DURING THE REMOTE LEARNING PROTOCOL, PLEASE REACH OUT TO YOUR TEACHER INDIVIDUALLY FOR HELP AND GUIDANCE.
We sincerely appreciate your attentiveness and cooperation as we navigate COVID-19 and make the most informed decisions to keep our community safe.
