Principal Dispatch—April 18, 2020

Dear ICCP Families and Friends,

Yesterday, Governor Pritzker announced that in-person instruction would be suspended for the rest of the school year in Illinois to slow the spread of COVID-19 further. We understand this is difficult news to hear, but we support the governor’s decision to protect the health and wellness of all Illinoisans. Closed school buildings and facilities do not deter the ICCP community! Our teachers will continue to teach, and our students will continue to learn. The critical work of educating your child will not stop, and you will continue to hear from us regularly for the remainder of the scheduled school year. We know this is a tough time, but the IC Catholic Prep team will be here to support you every step of the way.

e-Learning will continue through the end of the school year.
We will continue our e-Learning as regularly scheduled. We will have more information next week regarding the school calendar and upcoming events.

Class of 2021
On Wednesday, we met with the Class of 2021 via Zoom. Seeing our students’ smiling faces and hearing from them directly brightened my day. Together we are stronger.
