Distance Learning Newsletter email from Principal Sepich on April 24, 2020

Hello SPSL Community,

I hope you have all had a great week and that you have been getting outside to enjoy the beautiful Nebraska spring weather. I am glad that warmer weather is here, although it took a while longer to get here than we all would have wished. I also pray that you and your families continue to be healthy and safe. We continue to miss you all.

Attached is our second SPSL Distance Learning Newsletter. Please note that this distance learning newsletter is not a replacement of any schoolwide newsletter that we currently use, and we only plan on sending this type of newsletter to our school community every Friday while we are in a distance learning format for the 2019-20 school year. I have also received inquiries from parents on how the 2020-21 school year will look if we are starting the school year away from the building. Although I hope that this does not happen, please know that we are working closely with the Nebraska Department of Education and the Catholic Schools Office on any potential preparations for next year on what could be a more synchronous and structured distance learning format than how we are ending the 2019-20 school year.

Please be attentive to the announcement in this distance learning newsletter that the last day of educational instruction at SPSL with our distance learning plan will be May 15th with an explanation of the reasoning for the decision. For our 8th graders, their last day of school will be May 11th. Additionally, for our 8th grade families, please look out for a separate email communication from me shortly about graduation details and dates. Furthermore, for 2nd grade families, please look out for a separate email communication from me about plans surrounding First Communion.

Thank you for all your support and partnership throughout this school year. Please know we continue to be thinking of you all, and we are keeping your families in our deepest prayers.

Peace and blessings,

Cory Sepich
