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.
