A note from our principal

As you know ole man winter has struck, thus to prepare for our upcoming winter we are planning to have Virtual Learning Days (e-days) in place of snow days. We have worked through this plan with the dioceses and presently 11 public school districts are having Virtual Learning Days (e-days). We have one snow day built in for this calendar year and 5 hours of calamity of hours from the state.

Presently we are planning on these days, when Seton is called off for an entire day, students will do school work from home either electronically (e-days) or with snow packets. Our goal for Virtual Learning Days (e-days) would be to have students do equivalent from home and all teachers would post directions and assignments on the web. In the event of power outages, we would give students a reasonable break on the due time. All assignments will be posted by 9am on the snow days. Middle school would have all core subjects posted, including religion. Primary (K-3) would have packets sent home in advance and intermediate grades (4-5) would post on line and may also send home snow day packets. All teachers would be accessible via email to answer questions from 9am-12pm on the snow days. Students work would be graded and feedback given. Preschool would not have snow packets.

As you know, the call to have school is made early in the AM and the five Lexington Diocesan principals make the call collectively . All TV stations post the decision on the weather closing or delay as well as Seton’s website. Parents can sign up for text messages from the TV stations. You can be assured in the event of one hour delay or inclement weather happening during the day all students would have excused absences if travelling becomes cumbersome for our Seton families. Safety is our primary concern and parents make the call on delays or early dismissal.

Again, thank you for allowing us to serve you at Seton. If you have any questions – please let us know as we work out the logistics of Virtual Learning Days (e-days).

In faith, knowledge and discipline,

Jane Gettler
Interim Principal
