THis WEek's announcements
The Archdiocese of San Francisco has determined that proactive measures to ensure the health and safety of the community at large during the COVID-19 health crisis are necessary. As such, the Superintendent has communicated that all schools in the San Francisco Archdiocese, including Serra, will close through March 25, 2020.
This closure means that all academic, athletic, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities are suspended until we re-open campus on March 26, 2020.
We know that this news is challenging and will raise many questions. Please know that we are committed to ensuring that students continue to receive quality academic content even though students will not be on campus.
We will continue our distance learning program to maintain continued academic progress for our students. Daily updates to parents can be found HERE.
Please know that the health and safety of all members of the Serra community is paramount. We deeply appreciate your patience and ongoing collaboration with us during this period. Be assured that we are committed to making this transition as smooth as possible for the entire Serra community. We pray for all members of the community to remain healthy and well during this challenging time.
There is a lot of anxiety and fear surrounding this health pandemic. Here is some useful information on how to reduce your stress level.
Campus Ministry News
Many of the communities where our students volunteer are vulnerable and could face more serious consequences if they are exposed to COVID-19. Because of this, we want to protect these individuals as much as possible.
Out of respect for our larger community and specifically those whose health is most vulnerable, we are asking students to refrain from engaging in direct service with the community, especially those who are marginalized (FIAT).
If you have already done service and have not yet submitted it on x2Vol, please do so as soon as possible. Whatever your hours are as of March 10 will be what stands for this year and all students will receive a P for their Christian Service grade. All hours submitted on x2Vol will continue to be verified and approved.
We encourage you to find other creative ways to continue to serve and benefit our community in this critical time. Many agencies are still in need of donations, non-perishable food, or other supplies and would appreciate extra financial or material assistance, if you are able. You might consider writing letters to people living in retirement or care facilities instead of visiting. You could also take this opportunity to contact your government representatives about an issue that you deeply care about. There are many ways to continue to serve our community even if we aren’t on site to do so.
All on-site and off-site practices and games are canceled until March 26.
All club meetings are canceled until March 26.
