Prayers you have all weathered hurricane Sally with little damage. Your safety and well-being is our major concern. As a result of COVID, we have learned to take extreme caution when it comes to the safety of our families and their children.
During Sally, our new addition as well as some of the rooms in the old building sustained flooding. We are still dehumidifying and obtaining new flooring for the affected classrooms. As a result, we will be closed this coming week; Monday, September 21 through Friday, September 25.
We have a professional staff that will be on our campus tomorrow working to ensure everything is safe for your children when they return to Sacred Heart Cathedral School. Our goal is to have the school pristine and clean upon your arrival back in the building.
Many people have asked what they can do to help. The most important request is that you pray for our school, families, faculty and staff. We will be moving forward as we pray together as a community.
If we can help anyone affected by this storm, please let me know.
In accordance with the Diocesan policy of following Escambia County schools for weather-related closures, school will be closed tomorrow due to TS Sally. Information about reopening will be posted here, on Facebook and sent via SchoolMessenger.
The Catholic Schools will follow the lead of Escambia County School District announcements regarding school closings during the hurricane season or for other weather related school closings. Announcements will be made on the radio (WYCT 98.7 FM, WCOA 1370 AM and JET 100.7 FM) and TV (WEAR Channel 3).
Listen for announcements that pertain to Escambia County, FLORIDA not Escambia County, ALABAMA – the towns of Brewton, Atmore and Flomaton.
If your house is significantly damaged or destroyed during a storm, if you evacuate and cannot return in a timely manner, etc. PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL THE SCHOOL and leave a message. We want to know that all of our families are safe.
School Messenger: Parents and staff can expect to receive an automated phone message or text containing vital school closing and re-opening information.
Facebook: School closing and re-opening information will be posted
Escambia County Public Service Announcement: Be prepared. As this hurricane season approaches, Escambia County officials are reminding citizens that “the first 72 is on you,” a catchy way of saying that citizens should be equipped to provide for themselves, their families and their pets for at least three days following a major hurricane. State and federal help will not be on the scene and local resources will be spread thin.
