Fr. Doyle Community,
Today we heard from Governor Raimondo that distance learning will be extended at least through the month of April. You can find what that means for our school community in particular by reading the announcement here, which was also sent to families via email.
It is difficult news to hear - not because we cannot continue to provide virtual instruction and assignments over the course of the next month. No, our teachers and staff remain fully committed to this goal, and I have no doubt that they will continue to hone their craft in the weeks ahead. This is difficult news to hear because it means a month without being able to experience what truly makes Fr. Doyle special - the sense of community that is built up within the four walls of our school building.
Through morning prayer service, interactions between teachers and students, sports, theater, service opportunities, dances, social events and more - our school is great because our community and the relationships it fosters is great.
So where do we go from here? We continue onward - one day at a time. We continue to put families and people first. We continue to provide robust instruction and assignments over a range of digital platforms. And we continue to look forward with hope to the day when we will once again open the doors of Fr. Doyle School for our students and families. May we never again take for granted what a blessing it is to be together.
