Important notes:

  • All Holy Family K-12 schools will be closed until Monday, April 13.

Ongoing Communications

Holy Family will continue to address any considerations that impact our entire student body. You may have already heard from some of your teachers providing academic resources to engage with online. Please continue to follow their instructions. As plans start to become more grade-level specific, we will turn your attention to communication from your schools and teachers.

Throughout this week, you can expect to hear a progress update from your child(ren)’s school(s) each day between 3–4 p.m. Please tune in for these important instructions and updates!
