                       Annunciation Starts the Year with Distance Learning

Annunciation gets back to education starting with Distance Learning on August 17, 2020.  On-campus learning is scheduled to begin on September 8. We thank you for your patience and we want you to know that the school administration,  faculty and staff are eager to return to in-school learning with safety precautions in place to help provide a healthy environment for all . We are following Diocesan guidelines where possible and we will keep you updated as we get closer to September 8.

It was heartwarming to see our families, new and returning, as they stopped in to collect books and computers to use at home.  Parents and students were happy to be on campus to say hello to their teachers and feel reconnected again with the school.  Lots of wonderful comments on the progress of our new school and church building. It is an exciting time for the campus of St. Gabriel's and Annunciation. 

We are grateful to our wonderful faculty and staff for all their preparations to provide the needed tools and resources to make Distance learning successful for our students and their families. While not ideal, we know by working together we can provide a good start to the year and transition to on campus learning more easily.  This will be difficult for many families who have both parents working while their children are learning at home. We understand there are many families worried about the financial burden of paying tuition and covering the expense of childcare. We are also mindful of those who have been furloughed/laid off/lost wages due to the current situation caused by the pandemic. We urge our parents who are stressed by current economic conditions to reach out to Dr. Pristash to discuss financial assistance.  Scholarships may be available for those who demonstrate need.   

Finally, we ask for you to pray for our world, our nation, and our community. This has been an extraordinary time in our history, and we believe our faith in God, along with the salvation gained for us by his only son Jesus Christ, will carry us through these challenging times.  Bless you all!
