THis WEek's announcements
Dear Parents and Students,
We hope that you and your family are staying healthy as you navigate these difficult times. As you are aware, we received an order from San Mateo County Health Officer Dr. Scott Morrow that officially closes all public and private schools through the end of the school year. Serra will continue with distance learning during this time frame. While we expected this news, it is no less painful to come to terms with this reality We will continue to keep you informed about the plans for the new school year.
We will continue our distance learning program to maintain continued academic progress for our students. Daily updates to parents can be found on our Covid19 Resources page.
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).
We fucourage 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 further notice.
All club meetings are canceled until further notice.
So that we may bring optimism, strength and joy to our Serra community during these unprecedented times, we have created a special Covid Kindness website page to share heartwarming stories, stories of courage, and random acts of kindness that surround us all. There is also an area where you can support local Padre business who are struggling or who are offering support.
