Coronavirus Update at SJV

This week Governor Evers declared a Public Health Emergency for the State of Wisconsin. In his words, “we are working aggressively to slow the speed of COVID-19.” We take that responsibility seriously, as we consider the impact of our decisions on students and their learning, our families and staff, and the greater community area. We will be proactive when it comes to protecting our SJV family and community.

Beginning Monday, March 16th until further notice, students should not report to our SJV campus. Instead, we will be implementing virtual learning programming. Families can expect a communication by Monday regarding the specifics of their virtual learning expectations. If you have questions regarding the school closure, please submit your question here and a staff member will follow up with you.

While away from school, we strongly encourage families to follow the guidance and recommendations provided by the CDC regarding safe hygiene and travel.
We recognize the significant burden this decision places on our families, staff, and community, but this is the appropriate, proactive response to an unprecedented health crisis. We will continue to be in consultation with local and state health agencies to ensure that we play an active role in combating COVID-19.

We want to answer one question with confidence; “Are we doing all we can to keep our students, staff, and community safe?”

Prayers for health and safety,

Brian Shimon
Principal, St John Vianney School
