In evaluating the evolving pandemic crisis of the COVID-19 virus, and in line with recommendations from local, state and national officials, as well as in coordination with our ISAS peer schools, Parish Episcopal School is closed through Friday, April 3 and will be conducting Distance Learning with its students (PreK – 12th) beginning March 25.
Parish’s administration, including divisional leadership and its Educational Technology team, has developed a robust Distance Learning plan defined as an environment where faculty will use their normal, face-to-face teaching methods via electronic media. We are committed to keeping relationships with our students central by connecting and communicating with them often through multiple and varied modalities.
As we settle into our Distance Learning programming, it is our hope that our community remains safe and healthy during this challenging time. In line with its mission, Parish intends to continue to guide students to become creative learners and bold leaders prepared to impact a complex global society. We are also prepared to continue to support our students and their families, faculty and staff through our centerED programming for social and emotional well-being.
We appreciate the support and flexibility of our entire community – students, parents, faculty, staff, Board of Trustees, and a varied list of friends of Parish – throughout this season of uncertainty.
