Dear Holy Trinity Community:
The Holy Trinity High School administrative team is closely attuned to information emerging about the omicron variant of COVID-19, its impact on our community, and the potential surge in cases as we travel and gather for the holidays. The administration is making decisions based on the best scientific evidence and data available.
In the spirit of our Holy Cross value of Family and taking care of ourselves and one another, Holy Trinity will start the second semester remotely from Wednesday, January 5, 2022 through Friday, January 14, 2022. We plan to return to full in-person instruction on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, following the observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Holy Trinity is fully committed to in-person instruction. This action – coupled with our adherence to local, state and federal COVID-19 guidelines – will help us cautiously start the second semester so we can ensure we sustain a robust high school experience for the remainder of the academic year. The health and safety of our community must be our top priority.
Students should regularly check their school-issued email accounts, as well as Schoology for instructions and announcements from their teachers. At this time, we have not made a final decision regarding athletic games and activities, which are scheduled to restart the first week of January. We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate information later next week.
While we learn more about the omicron variant, please keep practicing these important protocols:
Get your COVID booster NOW! CDC has recently updated guidance and recommends everyone 18 years and older should get a booster shot. For more information on specific criteria and where to find a booster, please visit the CDC’s website. At this time, Holy Trinity is not mandating faculty, staff and students to get a COVID-19 vaccine booster, however anyone due to receive one is highly encouraged to do so.
Submit proof of vaccination. Please turn in your student’s proof of vaccination card into the Main Office as soon as possible. We want to have an accurate record of who’s vaccinated in the building in order to support our contact tracing efforts. There are three (3) ways in which you can submit your proof of vaccination to us:
Simply bring the card to the Main Office and we will make a copy.
You may scan and email it to Linda Bannon in the Main Office at email@example.com
You may fax a copy of the vaccination card to 773-278-0144 attention “Linda Bannon.”
Wash your hands
Practice social distancing whenever/wherever possible.
Wear a mask AT ALL TIMES while indoors on campus
Stay home if you’re sick! Do not attend any in-person classes or activities.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding as we take steps to keep our entire community safe and healthy. Your continued support of our mission is not taken for granted, and for that, we are grateful.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
