We received the statement issued Thursday by Gov. Kay Ivey that directed public schools to offer distance learning.
The Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Mobile began distance learning as of Thursday, March 19. Our schools are committed to offering our students the best possible education so that they may successfully complete the spring semester.
I wish to thank the principals, faculties and staffs of our schools for their dedication to the students and their welfare. I also wish to thank the parents and families of our students for their support during these challenging days.
We will continue to provide distance learning, although our school buildings will remain closed through at least Sunday, April 19.
Any consideration of reopening the Catholic schools will depend upon advice of civil authorities.
(There are 19 Catholic schools of the Archdiocese of Mobile in Baldwin, Macon, Mobile and Montgomery counties.)
