Letter to Parents

(Also here in full text)

March 24, 2020


Dear Parents and Guardians,


Hopefully this letter finds you and your family well, adhering to the guidance regarding safe health practices, and keeping your spirits positive. Together we must all do our part to address the Coronavirus challenge before us and together we shall be successful.


In cooperation with directives from government and health professionals, all Catholic elementary and secondary schools – parish, regional, and diocesan – in the Diocese of Wilmington will be closed until Monday, May 18. Should the duration of the school closure be shortened or lengthened, you will receive additional communication.


The process for at-home and online learning that has been undertaken by your school in the past seven school days will continue for the duration of this quarantine. Our goal is to afford your child(ren) every opportunity to complete the current academic year successfully and to progress to the next grade level. Specific details pertinent to your school will be communicated by administrators and teachers. The duration of this school closure will require adjustments in a variety of areas. These adjustments are under review by the Diocese of Wilmington at this time and a follow-up communication will explain information that may answer questions or concerns you have. Your patience in awaiting the follow-up communication is greatly appreciated.


We encourage you to practice recommended safe procedures at home for your children and for you.

ï‚· Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

ï‚· Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.

ï‚· Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

ï‚· Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

ï‚· Cover cough or sneeze with a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash immediately or use the bend of the elbow.

ï‚· Limit physical contact with others such as handshakes and high fives.

ï‚· Stay home when sick.

ï‚· Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.


Throughout this time at home we ask that, as your child(ren)’s first teachers in the ways of the faith, you continue to take time for daily prayer and participate in the weekend liturgy on TV or online. The Mass is available, along with other helpful information, at We place ourselves under the care of our Blessed Mother, especially during these challenging days, and seek her intercession with our Lord for good health for all.
