Dear Beaumont School Community,
By now you have probably heard that Gov. Mike DeWine has ordered all K-12 schools in Ohio closed for the next three weeks (through April 3) in an effort to minimize spread of the coronavirus. This presents challenges for us all. Here at Beaumont, we have been working on a plan for more than a week.
Students will not have class tomorrow (March 13). Teachers will be here preparing for online learning. Mrs.Tina Fornaro will be at the front desk and students who were not able to pick up all of their materials today will be able to do so between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Assignments will be posted beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, March 19th.
Beaumont will be completely closed during this time effective at 5 p.m. tomorrow. All extracurricular and athletics are cancelled. There will be no games, meets or practices until April 6th. Please check back regularly for updates.
Faculty and administration will meet tomorrow to outline expectations for faculty and students for the next few weeks and partaking in professional development to provide refreshers on our distance learning resources like PowerSchool and Google Classroom. As part of our preparation, we also want to ensure that our students are able to connect to these resources from home. If you do not have access to a reliable internet connection, contact Mr. Beyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Communications are critical during this time. You can expect to hear from us in much more detail. We will be updating our Coronavirus website page: www.beaumontschool.org/coronavirus. Please check back regularly. You can also access from a banner on the top of the home page of our website.
Business operations will continue remotely. If you have questions about tuition payments, please contact Erika Gofman at email@example.com.
Finally, let me say that your daughters have been amazing. This morning I shared with them how heartbreaking it is that so many sacrifices are required after so much hard work. This is an unprecedented event. Public health requires that we think of collective humanity and not just ourselves as individuals. But that doesn’t minimize the hurt of missing out on sentinel events, particularly for our Seniors. The actions we are required to take, however, are for the protection of all.
Our Catholic faith calls us to care for one another. Know that we are praying for the health of you and your daughters and we hope that this unprecedented event will pass quickly.
Yours in St. Angela,
Wendy A. Hoke
