Superintendent's Desk: We're Blessed to Be Able to Re-open Schools

My Dear Friends,

The principals, head masters, deans, teachers and staff at all of the schools in the Diocese of Norwich are so excited and feel blessed to be able to re-open all the schools and deliver direct instruction to their students.

The schools along with their committees have done a remarkable job creating and implementing their reopening plans while maneuvering through uncharted waters.

Each committee addressed: Facilities, Daily Operations, Health Practices and Protocols uncharted designating an employee to serve as a COVID-19 Health and Safety, Compliance Liaison, Reporting Illnesses and Addressing Vulnerable Populations, Containment Plan, Transportation, Social Distancing, Child Nutrition as well as Planning for Remote Distance Learning should a need arise.

This took the entire summer in order for the students, faculty and staff to safely return back to school. I am eternally grateful for their dedication and hard work.

There is a quote from Mother Teresa, that hangs above my desk, " Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin." May God grant strength in your daily tasks, wisdom in all your decisions, favor in your labors, and provision for your daily needs.

May God Bless You and Keep you Safe,

Dr. Gail Kingston
Interim-Superintendent of Schools
