March 30 | A Message From Mrs. Harvey For The Class Of 2020
Dear Seniors and Senior Parents,
I know that this time of being away from school is difficult for all of our students and our faculty, but I also know that it is particularly difficult on you, the Class of 2020. Not only has the COVID-19 pandemic affected your senior year, but your freshman year was also disrupted due to the flood of 2016. I know that many of your families were affected by that devastating natural disaster. You have certainly encountered some challenges during your time as a student here.
Fast forward to today, when no one could have guessed that when we returned from the Mardi Gras break on March 3, two short weeks later we would all be separated by distance. This is certainly not how I want you to spend your final weeks as a CHS student.
I am sure that you have many questions about the remainder of the school year and all of the events that we have planned to celebrate with you. I wish that I had those answers, but as of today, I cannot tell you anymore than what we are all seeing on the news. It is certainly my hope and prayer that we can all return to school at some point and conclude the rest of the school year with some normalcy. If that happens, we will reschedule the events that we can according to what all of you want to prioritize. If we cannot return by a reasonable date, then we will have to get creative with our plans. What I do know is that we will do everything we can to celebrate your final weeks as a CHS student and your graduation.
I also know that it is additionally difficult on all of you who are missing out on extracurricular events: our senior athletes in spring sports, band and choir students who are not performing, clubs that are not meeting, and the list goes on. My heart truly aches for all of you. The entire CHS community is in my prayers during this difficult time, but even more I am praying for the Class of 2020. May God bless you and your family with good health, along with courage and confidence to positively navigate through these difficult times as you complete your high school career. With God’s help, we will all be reunited on campus soon. Until that can happen, continue to work on your school work this week, take time off during our Easter break, continue to social distance, wash your hands, and don’t forget to pray. And, Go Bears!
With much love and affection,
Ametur Cor Jesu. Loved be the heart of Jesus.
