9.23.20 - Important information regarding cancellation of afternoon activities
September 23, 2020
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The safety of Mount Carmel students, parents, staff, and all who visit our campus is our priority. With that in mind, the administration has put procedures in place in anticipation of any civil unrest in response to the Breonna Taylor Grand Jury decision. We have been in contact with the Chicago Police Department, as well as our local government’s office, and will continue to maintain close contact with both.
Our administration has decided to CANCEL ALL AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES FOR TODAY, Wednesday, September 23, 2020; students are asked to leave the campus immediately after school.
As of now, our plan is to maintain regularly scheduled classes on campus tomorrow. We will confirm tomorrow’s school schedule via email and robocall tonight.
As the Mount Carmel school community, we hold in our hearts all those who are victims; all those who fear for their safety; all those who stand courageously for the dignity of others; and all those who serve to protect communities and individuals from violence.
Thank you for your cooperation as we address these important issues. We appreciate the partnership we share in your son's four-year journey at Mount Carmel. Please join us in praying for peace in our city, nation, and world.
May Our Lady of Mount Carmel guide and protect us all.
