Exciting 4th Quarter School Reopening News!

Dear Parent(s), Guardian(s) and Student(s),

We are excited to share that we have created A Resource Guide for High School Families, in which our Administrative Team has adopted many strategies as we plan for the successful reopening of our campus. As we begin to phase students back to campus we are committed to the care for the health and well-being of our community.

With the students at the forefront of all our decisions, it is important for us to come back together to transition to learning in community. Josephinum students will continue to participate in digital learning for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. We will introduce a hybrid model starting April 12th to begin our transition back to campus. The primary mode of instruction will be virtual while we will be gathering in large spaces and breaking off into clusters for classes. All students will be supervised. Seniors and Juniors will report to the building on Mondays and Tuesdays while Freshmen and Sophomores will be reporting on Thursday and Friday. We plan on organizing team building and social emotional centered activities to support our students as they ease out of quarantine and acclimate themselves with the school environment.
