2020-2021 School Updates
December 29, 2020
Dear de Paul School Families:
The de Paul School will return to our on-site instruction on Tuesday, January 5. Those students who have been enrolled in our remote program will continue their off-campus instruction.
In preparation for our return on January 5, we share these announcements.
- Families or school employees who engaged in out-of-state holiday travel are urged to voluntarily self-quarantine for 14 days when they return to Kentucky or follow CDC guidance for alternate options to shorten the quarantine period.
- Students should return their supplies bins and technology on Tuesday, January 5.
- Families can once again order lunches on the FLIK Dining app. The FLIK website can be found at https://tds.flikisdining.com/.
- Students are encouraged to bring clear personal water bottles to school. We will have water available to replenish those throughout the day.
- It is essential that students and educators stay at home as a precaution if they feel ill (fever, cough, respiratory distress, lethargy, and upset stomach) in the morning.
- Students who wish to bring holiday gifts for our teachers and staff can do so on Friday, January 8. We will have a delivery system in place so that those can be taken safely to our classrooms.
We wish everyone a safe and healthy conclusion to 2020. We look forward to seeing everyone back at de Paul on Tuesday! Happy New Year!
Head, The de Paul School

Funding for Those in Need

Individual households may request support by contacting their nearest Neighborhood Place Location. Here’s an overview of the fund including who is eligible for support, how to request assistance, and how to donate.
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.
