Steubenville Catholic Schools UPDATE as of March 26, 2020

Steubenville Catholic School families-

As we continue to navigate these uncharted waters, we are grateful for all of you and your patience as you work with us to make the at-home education process successful. We continue to make adjustments and are working with our staff to find the best ways to assist our students during these days.

In the event that are unable to return to school on April 6th as originally anticipated, we will lengthen our Easter Break from Saturday, April 4th through Tuesday, April 14th. These 11 days will give our teachers time to plan for future lessons and learn new technologies, and students time to catch up on missing work. Most of all, time for ALL of us to slow down, focus on family and really be able to enter into Holy Week and celebrate Easter, even though those celebrations will be different this year.

May God bless each of your families as we walk together during this challenging time.

“God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in distress.” Psalm 46

In Him we trust,

Bishop Mussio Elementary UPDATE as of March 17, 2020
Dear parents,

Thank you for your patience and support during this two- day transition to at-home learning. The pickup process went very smoothly. This is a work in progress and we will continue to communicate with you via email. I want to commend our teachers who have worked feverishly to provide materials and lessons for our students. Third quarter report cards will be mailed home next week.

In order for the teachers to keep up with assessments and grading, we have placed bins outside in the breezeway labeled by grade and teacher. Once your student has completed the week’s assignments please drop off the work in the appropriate bins. If you are unable to get to the school to drop off, please scan or take a photo of the work and email it to each teacher.

Our teachers will be checking their email hourly between the hours of 8am-3pm Monday through Friday. Do not hesitate to reach out to them with any questions you may have. Teachers are setting up a variety of ways to communicate with your child. Most work has already been prepared and given to you for three weeks. Teachers are now in the process of posting lesson plans and homework on Renweb. Since we are not fully online with classroom resources, teachers will alert you to any other sites they may be utilizing.

Since preschool does not have a required curriculum, we encourage you to follow the suggestions of our staff and keep your children engaged in everyday learning. By reading to them, keeping up their letter recognition and counting skills, their little minds will stay engaged.

Let’s all stay united in prayer as we face this crisis as a community and strive to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe. We will be available via email daily so do not hesitate to contact me or Mrs. Morelli with your questions and concerns.

God bless-
