Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information for the Cardinal Gibbons Community

Students to remain Distance Learning Through the Remainder of the School Year
Issued April 16, 2020

Dear Parents/Students,

I hope you all had a Blessed Easter and a restful break.

I have new updates for all of us as we continue to take on the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis.

Please note that all the schools in the Archdiocese of Miami will remain in distance learning mode for the remainder of the fourth quarter, with classes concluding on June 3. Seniors will continue to their originally scheduled final day of classes on May 15.

Cardinal Gibbons remains open and although our physical campus is closed to our students, our education continues. The distance learning that has been going on is providing live instruction and fulfilling the educational needs of our students. The only adjustment in terms of education is that we will not be concluding this semester with final exams.

As we approach the end of the school year, we will provide more information on how we will collect school equipment like iPads.

In terms of seniors, you will receive another email tomorrow outlining more steps and directions on submitting senior letters and how we plan to deliver the end of the year items to you. As mentioned previously, Cardinal Gibbons is going to make every effort possible to provide you with a prom, baccalaureate mass, and commencement.

I ask that parents and students alike, continue to take the education we are providing seriously. It is a vital part of your academic year, and many items you are learning now will be needed as you progress into courses next year.

This COVID-19 pandemic has been teaching us from the get-go to grow and evolve, even if it means to get out of our comfort zone. Jesus Christ calls us to do this every day in our faith, and in these times, we are truly forced to put it into action and become the best versions of ourselves even in the face of adversity and challenges. This new update and adjustment is no different; I know that as Chiefs in this Gibbons family, we will overcome each of these obstacles.

Sincerely,

Oscar Cedeno
Principal
