Dear SPPS Families,
Earlier this evening, Governor Andy Beshear recommended that all schools continue distance learning until the end of the school year. In accordance with this directive, all schools in the Catholic Diocese of Lexington will not resume in-person classes and continue virtual instruction for the remainder of the academic year.
This recommendation, while anticipated, is still difficult for us as a school community. We will continue the high academic standards you are accustomed to and continue to deliver them to the best of our ability in a virtual format.
Our last scheduled NTI day for the 2019-2020 school year will be Friday, May 29th.
With this announcement, comes many questions about how we will conclude the academic year. Over the next few days and weeks, we will inform you of the protocols and procedures that will be implemented to complete the school year. These will not only include information about events, but also textbook return, locker cleanout, etc. Our plans are subject to change due to the ever evolving COVID-19 situation. All procedures and changes will be communicated to students and families as soon as possible.
No final decision about future school events such as 8th grade graduation, have been made. We will update the status of events as the diocese and state government provides additional directives. Recognizing the importance of key milestones in the school experience, we remain committed to hosting as many of these events as possible when we can safely gather as a school community.
We ask for your continued prayer and support for one another, the SPPS family, and the entire Lexington community.
Jamie Burch, Principal
