COVID-19 and Digital Learning Updates

Catholic High School and the Diocese of Richmond are closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. This webpage will be used to post the most current information regarding our school and student learning.

Message from Principal Peggy Boon - March 27, 2020

Dear CHS Families,

I hope that this email finds you and your loved ones well. We miss seeing your children on a daily basis! Please see the letter from Superintendent of Catholic Schools, Kelly Lazzara, attached to this email. Per Governor Northam’s Executive Order Fifty-Three, all K-12 school buildings will remain closed through the end of the school year. Below are several important points for Catholic High School.

CHS Digital Learning Days will continue through the end of the school year, following the 2019-2020 academic calendar as scheduled. Spring break and Memorial Day are still holidays. Digital Learning Days (DLD) provide a continuity of learning in all classes. Through both synchronous and asynchronous learning, CHS students engage in meaningful interactions with their teacher, the content, and one another. Faculty are introducing new material, and students are earning grades for their completed work. We will continue to communicate with you about academics as the quarter progresses.

Message from Superintendent of Schools - March 25, 2020

Dear Parents, Faculty, and Staff,

During this time of uncertainty, I hope that you are well. Governor Northam has stated that public and private schools are to be closed for at least the end of this academic school year. We are required to follow that mandate during this state of emergency. However, while our classrooms and hallways may be closed to students gathering, we are still open to learning new things and successfully completing this academic school year!

From our Early Learners through 12th grade the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Richmond are committed to fulfilling our mission to develop and nurture the spiritual, intellectual, social, and emotional growth of each student in the spirit of the Gospel and teachings of the Catholic Church. From the start of this pandemic, our faculty and staff have adjusted quickly and are working hard to provide instruction to your students. This continuation of learning is ensuring that our students are meeting the instructional requirements they will need to successfully complete this academic year and move onto their next grade level.

Message from Chaplain Father Anthony - March 25, 2020

Dear Friends at Catholic High School,

My greetings and regards to you, wherever you are!  I hope that this message finds you well.

My prayers are with you during these trying moments. I cannot say that we have all adjusted to this new way of life. It came so fast before any of us were ready, but I am so grateful for how we have all responded and found new means of reaching each other.  As I write this message, it is a Tuesday. This is normally our day of prayer together at school. I want you to know that I celebrate Mass every day and you are in my prayers.
