WEEK OF APRIL 13, 2020
April 17, 2020
I am reasonably sure that your Easter celebration looked uniquely different this year! The wonderful thing about the season moving forward is that we celebrate resurrection – the tomb is empty and hope springs again. We can take solace in the message and remain hopeful that the community will be back together again soon!
As of this writing, there is no update regarding when school might resume as normal. I remain vigilant to any and all communications that come from State or local resources. I will let you know as soon as there is an official directive.
** The prom for this year has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled
I have no information to share regarding commencement at this time.
If your student(s) is/are feeling stress which could be somewhat alleviated with a conversation, please note that the Guidance Counselors and Fr. Bob are available for a phone conversation. Please email any of them to request a mutually convenient time to connect:
Ms. Tucker firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Thuot email@example.com
Fr. Bob Rbouffier@cmlions.org
Thank you to everyone who participated in the class video competition – they are GREAT!

Mrs. Echemendia continues to monitor the progress of our distance learning program. If you have technical difficulties, please be sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, you may contact Mr. DiLascio at email@example.com or Mrs. Lagrange at firstname.lastname@example.org who can assist you. For clarity purposes, the CAMPUS is inoperative but teaching/learning and work for credit has been, and continues to be, on-going for all students. It is our expectation that students will successfully finish their academic work and earn credit for activity completed both on and off campus for this school year.
**CM Second semester exams are being waived in all classes (this does not include AP classes if you are choosing to take that exam according to the College Board provisions). Second semester grades will be determined by a 50/50 weighting of Q3 and Q4 grades. It is school policy that students are not admitted to semester exams until their FACTS accounts are current. Due to the current situation, final grades will not be issued until accounts for the 19-20 school year are current.
Parents will be receiving an important mailing (via snail mail) in the coming days. Please be alert to its arrival. Questions regarding the contents can be directed to the Finance Office. Mr. Preston (email@example.com) or Ms. Ortega (firstname.lastname@example.org) can assist you with additional information as needed.
Before the COVID-19 outbreak, we were making plans to construct a Student Wellness Center in Kearns Hall beginning in the Fall, 2020. I am pleased to announce that those plans remain in-tact and are moving forward. This health service will be available to all students during the school day and as an additional point of connection for students who manage serious and chronic health challenges. We have hired an extremely qualified nurse practitioner who is looking forward to being part of the CMCP community and to helping to keep all of us healthy in body! Watch for additional updates.
As always the health, safety and well-being of our whole Lions community continues to be the most urgent focus at the present time.
