As many of you know, we have seen an uptick with the COVID numbers at our school the past few weeks--obviously going against the trend of our community and state.
A very strong majority of the cases are stemming from out-of-school activities and household close contacts becoming positive. Since the first of the year, none of our close contacts that we have identified at school, have become positive. We continue to be confident in our routines and procedures at school that have consistently been implemented this year. We will keep moving forward.

A reminder that all financial aid applications, including scholarships through Bishop O'Gorman Catholic Schools are due by April 1. Please click here to view a list of scholarships. As of now, we have very few applicants for the scholarships associated with the junior high.
7th Grade ACT Aspire Testing-
7th Grade ACT Aspire Testing will take place on Tuesday, April 13. This online test measures academic achievement in the areas of English, math, reading, science, and writing. It is aligned with the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards, making test results meaningful by connecting your child’s score to specific skills and knowledge that are important to success in college and the workplace. The students will spend the majority of this day taking the test. In order for students to do their best, it is important that your child gets plenty of sleep at night and a good breakfast on testing day. Also, please be cognizant of the tests when scheduling appointments or other events that may take your child out of school.
