School Closure & Digital Learning Information
Based on the latest guidance and updates from Governor Brown, Blanchet Catholic School will be making a major adjustment to our school schedule beginning on Monday, March 16, 2020. Blanchet will have a full day of school today with dismissal at 3:10 p.m.
Here is a list of the adjustments we will be making starting on Monday, March 16:
Blanchet will implement our digital learning protocol for all students for the week of March 16-20.
The week of March 23-27 our community will be on Spring Break.
Blanchet will return to digital learning for Monday, March 30 and Tuesday, March 31.
Blanchet students will return to classes on campus on Wednesday, April 1.
As stated yesterday, all activities, events, practices, competitions, meetings, and performances are postponed at this time and will remain postponed until further notice.
Blanchet will continue to monitor updates and guidance from Gov. Brown on this situation, and adjustments to this plan may be necessary.
We will have our main school office open from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday through the end of March. Please let us know if you need any assistance.
By implementing our digital learning protocol, students will be able to stay on track academically, and it will help us avoid adding school days to our academic year. Our teachers will be sharing information with classes today about what to expect for the digital learning process.
While we are using our digital learning protocol, students will need to access information from their teachers on the RenWeb system. If you are having difficulty navigating the RenWeb system, please refer to the attached information for assistance. If you are still having difficulties, contact the school by phone (503-391-2639) or email. Please make sure your child brings home books, notebooks, and materials for all classes so that they have the necessary tools for the coming weeks. A few students have asked about the possibility of checking out a device to use for the digital learning days. If you are in need of borrowing a device from the school please contact the school office to make arrangements.
These are unprecedented times for our city, state, and school. I know these adjustments cause difficulties for our families, and I hope that the coming weeks are manageable for all members of our community. I appreciate the continued support and understanding of our school community as we work to keep our students, employees, and community safe.
