Coronavirus: COVID-19

Pathway to Recovery, School Information & Communications

As health officials take steps to prepare for the COVID-19 "Pathway to Recovery", this web page will serve as Sacred Heart Academy’s Coronavirus resource center.

Current Status From Head of School, Deirdre Cryor

The faculty, staff and I are so grateful for the partnership that we usually enjoy between home and school. That partnership was truly appreciated this spring as home became the school setting.

As we look to next school year, I was so pleased when the Governor announced that schools will be opening and in-person instruction will occur. We are thrilled to return to campus. However, we know that we will have guidelines and procedures from the federal and state government that we will follow.

We have established a Return to Campus Committee that includes faculty and staff. The committee members are reviewing expectations and regulations from state and federal agencies in order to determine the best way Sacred Heart will implement the different guidelines. Health and safety will be our highest priorities.

I anticipate that our size will give Sacred Heart Academy an advantage as we review the distancing guidelines. Much like many schools in our area are announcing, we anticipate that we will operate under four possible scenarios. The scenarios include fully open; open with social distancing guidelines; a hybrid of students receiving instruction on campus and students at home engaged in distance learning; and full distance learning with the campus closed.

We are also reviewing each division’s needs. It is possible that the divisions will operate differently. Through all of our planning, we will keep in mind our goals of providing a safe atmosphere and our solid educational program. I will continue to communicate with you through the summer.
