Alameda County is now
in the Red Tier

What does that mean for Moreau Catholic?

Below are important details, timeline, and next steps for our gradual and safe return to campus so that you can think about this transition and prepare to participate as your family chooses.

NEXT STEPS

  1. View presentation

    Please view this recorded presentation and/ or these presentation slides to learn more about our hybrid instructional model and safe return to campus. We invite your family to join us for a Zoom webinar to review the highlights of our re-opening plan and to ask any questions you may have. We are offering an evening and morning session to help you to learn more about our reopening and inform participation decisions. We will record and share the sessions with you as soon as they are done, and know that we are always here to answer any questions.

  3. Make a decision about participation in our hybrid model and fill out your form

    Please consider the information we have shared, let us know if you have any questions, and then fill out the form linked in the email sent on Thursday, March 11 by Tuesday, March 16, 2021 to help us with our planning and share your student’s plan to stay in distance learning or participate in our hybrid instructional model. As we have shared throughout this school year, we will continue to offer distance learning as an option for students until the end of this school year.
    *Please note that once the choice is made, your student(s) will remain in that option for the remainder of the school year (any exceptions would need to be approved by counselors and Ms. Hannon, our AP of Instruction.)

A non-response will indicate to us that your student(s) plan to remain in distance learning, although we are very hopeful to have a 100% response rate and we will follow up with you as needed. We will respect and support your family’s decision, and together we will continue to partner to support the outstanding achievement of our Mariners and empower the next generation of leaders.

OUR TRANSITION SCHEDULE

March 15: No School – Holiday

March 16-20: Distance Learning For Students with all Faculty Teaching From Campus 

Time for teachers to re-adjust to their on-campus space and get oriented, test new technology, collaborate with colleagues, work with our facilities team, and prepare for students’ safe return. 

March 22-25: Distance Learning Classes & Student Orientation Days on Campus 

Students will come to campus by assigned groups and times for after-class orientation sessions led by our Deans to practice new procedures, such as campus entry/ exit, passing periods, lunch, and restroom use. Deans will send emails to classes with their orientation schedules. 

March 26, March 29-31: Cohorts Begin to Attend Class on Campus in our Hybrid Model

All students will have the opportunity to attend classes on campus before our break. Student leaders will help us make this transition successful for all of our Mariner students. 

April 1- 9: No School – Easter Spring Break

* Travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID. The CDC still recommends that you delay travel and stay home to protect yourself and others.  If you choose to travel more than 120 miles from home, the current guidance is to stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after your trip.  This may be reduced to 7 days if you get tested with a viral test 3-5 days after your return and it is negative.  Please plan your break and honor these expectations so that together we can keep our community safe.  

April 12: Classes Resume in our Hybrid Model  

*We will send out a detailed calendar soon that highlights which days are on-campus days for A-K or L-Z cohorts.
