From the Principal
Greetings From Principal Todd Orlando,
It is with an abundance of Kenny Pride that we re-open the doors on August 19 to receive our students in this, our 69th year of preparing minds, hearts and souls for college and life!
We look optimistically toward the 2020-2021 school year and the changes and challenges that it may bring. We are equipped with a judicious Return to School Plan as well as a comprehensive Instructional Continuity Plan should the need to return to distance learning occur. The plan includes guidelines for the safest possible operation of our school, in light of continued concerns related to Covid-19. We are all in this together and I am asking our students and parents to help us stay as safe as possible by following the CDC guidelines and school policies.
Of great importance this year is a new initiative, our Task Force on Diversity, to help address issues of race and equality within our school community. I invite you to learn more about this timely undertaking by visiting our Task Force site and learning more about their work.
I would like to advise that the annual seminars offered by the Office of School Counseling and the Deans of Students will continue this year. In order to observe social distancing, the programs will be recorded and shared with our families. I strongly encourage both the parent and child to view these highly beneficial programs.
As a community, we dedicate the 2020-2021 school year to St. Joseph. That through his intercession, we may give our entire selves over to what God is asking of us.
