Archbishop Moeller High School is committed to the overall health and well-being of your son, your family, and our faculty and staff. In considering our plans for the fall, we looked to balance the risk of transmission of the new coronavirus with the effect of school closure on the physical and mental health of students. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) strongly advocates that all considerations for the upcoming school year should start with a goal of having students physically present in school.
Lengthy time away from school can result in social isolation, presenting a host of physical and mental challenges for young men. Working closely with the local health department and following appropriate Center for Disease Contral (CDC) guidelines, we developed this handbook with clear guidance on our plans for the fall.
Much of what makes Moeller a special place is the people and our Marianist foundation. It is the “Family Spirit” charism that we will be leaning on as we create and sustain an environment of health and safety. We will be relying on everyone to take care of themselves and others as we proceed forward.
This document will provide information on how we plan to mitigate risk while providing our students and teachers with the consistency, structure, and stability of a daily school schedule. You will also find information about a transition to hybrid and remote learning should we be mandated to do so or deem it essential for public health.
