April 18, 2020 School Closures Announcement From Henry Fortier, Secretary for Education and Superintendent of Catholic Schools:
To our students and families,
This afternoon, Governor DeSantis announced that schools will remain closed for the remainder of this academic year. As has been our intent since our first parent announcement on Feb. 28, Diocese of Orlando Catholic Schools, including Volusia County Catholic Schools, will follow the same directive, keeping all facilities closed and continuing with distance learning. Although this is not the optimal situation, our teachers have been doing a phenomenal job in providing a rigorous, interactive digital learning environment for our students and will continue to do so for the rest of the school year.
We are also aware that you look forward to many end of the school year events — graduation, prom, awards ceremonies, etc. Currently, we are discussing a variety of safe options to celebrate your child’s successes and milestones. Your principal will inform you on how your school will recognize these events at a later date.
May God bless you and keep you safe during these uncertain times.
