We are touching base to let you know that  classes will resume soon in some form of distance learning.  Teachers have been reaching out over the past days to all of their students to find out if St. Benedict student(s) in your family have a means to stay connected through a device and/or internet access and to share this message about distance learning.

Students are reminded to please check any online learning environments (Google Classroom, D2L) and student/parent email for updates from their teachers. Please respond as soon as you are able to let them know you received their message and please share this message with other SBCSS students.

We are all working to adapt to the unprecedented conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are a student in need of support, please talk to an adult family member or trusted adult or connect with the resources below:
