Duchesne Academy moving classes online due to COVID-19

Duchesne administration sent the following letter to our families:
 
Parents and Students,
 
This evening there was an announcement that Omaha Public and Omaha Catholic Schools will close for the next week, or more. Duchesne is thus announcing its closure and the beginning of online learning.
 
All events are cancelled in the coming weeks, including:
All classes—information about online learning will be mailed separately;
Athletic practices and competitions;
All extra-curricular activities;
National Honor Society Induction (scheduled for March 25)
Quarter 3 Honors Assembly (scheduled for March 26)
9th grade Teacher Appreciation Event

However, the building will be open and staff will be available, including counselors. Anyone who is concerned about their own risk of exposure, anyone who feels sick, and anyone who may have been exposed please do not come to school.
 
Please watch for ongoing information from the school in the coming weeks. Important information will be sent by e-mail, through the Burt Street News, posted on the school web site and through social media.
 
We know that this event is going to cause extra stress for some families. The Duchesne community remains committed to supporting each other during these difficult days.
 
Laura Hickman, Ed.D.
