Back to School 2020-2021
September 23, 2020
Dear de Paul School Families:
The de Paul School will teach and learn remotely tomorrow, Thursday the 24th.
Like you, we have been monitoring announcements and developments today regarding the Breonna Taylor investigation, the grand jury report, and Attorney General Cameron’s statement. We will continue to monitor overnight any further developments and are uncertain as to what may transpire. We desire to be cautious we also aspire to be respectful.
Please make time within your homes tomorrow to join our faculty and staff in introspection as to how The de Paul School can be a leader and healer throughout our community in these divided times.
Remember that Friday is our Parent-Teacher-Student Conference Day. Those conferences will be managed remotely via zoom, as scheduled.
Thank You, Families. I am wishing you peace this evening.
Head, The de Paul School

The de Paul School Remote Instruction Program
The de Paul School has rolled out a comprehensive and specially-crafted remote instructional program. It includes synchronous sessions led by our faculty, with students engaged multisensorily in a new teaching and learning landscape. Over 95% of our students are attending/participating each day -- an attendance that rivals any “normal” school day.
