School at Home for BHCS Students

Catholic Schools Move to Distance Learning
Posted on 03/31/2020
A Distance Learning Plan will be implemented Monday, April 6 to prepare for continued student learning in the case that the Bishop Heelan School System closure extends beyond April 12. 

The schools will transition from enrichment activities and review online to actual graded instruction. The goal is to move to fully implement distance learning, according to Dr. John Flanery, BHCS president.  

“Our teachers will work to compact and prioritize curriculum,” he says “Some concepts will be more difficult to address in a distance learning format and we will need to work to assure consistent opportunity to learn for students regardless of the building they attend.”

Today March 31 teachers will come to their school buildings till 3:30 p.m. and prepare labeled sacks for each student with take-home learning textbooks and materials.

Students have learned they are to retrieve textbooks Wednesday, April 1 from 8 to 10 a.m. at Mater Dei, Holy Cross and Sacred Heart schools. Their books, chromebooks and more will be packed into labeled sacks with their name on it by teachers and delivered to waiting cars at pick-up areas in front of school.

Bishop Heelan High School students will also retrieve books from 8 a.m. till 12 noon in 15 minute time frames based on homerooms.  The doors will be monitored by the administration and only 10 students will be admitted at a time.
