Dear ICHS Community,
Thank you for your ongoing work, dedication, and professionalism during these uncertain times as we care for our students, families, and each other. Immaculate Conception High School is committed to doing our part to slow the spread and mitigate impacts of COVID-19. We continue to be proactive and have taken additional steps to mitigate the risk to our community over the last months out of an abundance of caution.
As you all know, on Monday, March 16, 2020, ICHS moved to remote learning and all after school and extracurricular activities (athletics, drama, clubs, etc.) were suspended until further notice. Utilizing the public health procedures and guidelines, ICHS has undergone rigorous cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting. Also, we are enforcing social distancing practices in our school and are requiring those in the building to be wearing masks. ICHS will continue to follow state regulations to reevaluate the situation to determine if we need to extend remote learning for this fall semester. Stay up to date by following us on social media and again, please read your emails regularly.
Additionally, over the past month, the nation has watched in dismay the footage of horrific incidents leading to the deaths of innocent lives. The ICHS community continues to join the nation in mourning these unspeakable tragedies. We renew our commitment to our Felician Core Values for Ministry: Respect for Human Dignity, Compassion, Transformation, Solidarity with the Poor, and Justice and Peace.
ICHS has always been committed to creating an inclusive environment that recognizes and respects people of every cultural, racial, ethnic, and religious background. Now more than ever, our collective efforts to foster a community of respect must be front of mind. Diversity is our greatest asset, and we must each do our part to nurture and protect one another, and to serve as a model for our community, for the nation, and for the world.
We are committed to serving our community during these challenging times. We will get through this together.
ICHS wishes you, and your families a restorative and safe summer!
Peace and all good,
Mr. Joseph R. Azzolino
Head of School
