With great faith, hope and joy, we end the year THRIVING and bid farewell to 2019-20. This time of uncertainty has many parents wondering what school will look like next year. Reports are changing daily and experts are still determining the best approach to keep everyone safe while simultaneously stabilizing the economy. In the midst of this confusion, all SRL parents can rest assured that our faculty is committed to doing everything possible to have your children safely return to the physical classroom for daily instruction. We are prepared to minimize movement in the building, intensify cleaning, sanitation and disinfection, require temperature checks, implement social distancing procedures, adjust activities to limit the number of shared toys and school materials, train all employees on health and safety protocols, monitor absences, etc. For any children who are sick or cannot attend class, we are developing a plan to provide access to lessons via Google Classroom, live videoconferencing, and pre-recorded instructional videos. Although our approach is contingent on recommendations from the CDC, government officials, and the Archdiocese of Miami, we are fortunate to have the distinct freedom to make decisions in a swift and extraordinary manner. In comparison to large school systems, our Catholic schools have the ability to do what’s best for our parish school communities and avoid the one-size fits all model. This flexibility has offered us an advantage over the past 10 weeks and will continue to benefit our families as we uphold our reputation as a leader in academic excellence. Over the summer months, we will follow the latest developments as we tirelessly explore the most practical, consistent, meaningful and safe manner to fully educate our students. We are prepared to teach in-person, virtually, or following a hybrid model always with the aim of returning to the school building as quickly as possible. As you can imagine, there will be little rest for our faculty and staff as we get ready for whatever lies ahead. We thank our teachers for their unwavering commitment and we are extremely grateful to our school families for your patience, trust and support. In the meantime, let us continue to serve God and each other with humility and love. With His grace, our St. Rose of Lima Catholic School family will remain united and our example of love, faith and community will be one of the best lessons our children will ever receive.
