Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! Classes officially began on Tuesday, August 18. For the health and safety of our school community, we will begin the year in distance learning with plans to return to in-person education when Sacramento County has been removed from California’s Watch List for the requisite 14 days. We will communicate as conditions change and we move toward our long-awaited in-person instruction.

Ensuring a Safe Campus

Ensuring that our community is as safe as possible during the coming months necessitates our working together and doing our best to act in accordance with our local, state and federal recommendations and requirements. As such, we will:

  • Require the use of face coverings on campus as mandated by local and state authorities.
  • Adhere to physical distancing recommendations in class and while on campus.
  • Provide ample hand washing and sanitation stations.
  • Enhance campus-wide sanitizing and cleaning processes.
  • Require self-temperature and wellness checks before students, faculty and staff arrive on campus.
  • Initiate modified visitor policies.
  • Modify cafeteria dining services.
  • Regulate campus travel patterns.

For safety reasons we are limiting the number of visitors in the Front Office at one time. Visitors will need to go through symptom screening at the Front Office before entering campus. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to the day when we can welcome you warmly every time you set foot on the Christian Brothers campus!

Attendance

If your student is unable to attend virtual class for any reason, please contact the Attendance Office at 916-733-3625 or email spierson@cbhs-sacramento.orgThis includes problems with power outages, Wi-Fi or any technology failure. Absences can only be excused when a parent or guardian contacts the Attendance Office.

Technology

In order to provide a safer and more streamlined online learning experience for our students, CB teachers will be using Microsoft Teams for all live classes and group meetings. We believe this change addresses some of the privacy, security, and uniformity concerns that arose in the spring while teachers were using a variety of platforms to deliver information and instruction.

Checking for assigned homework on Schoology and grade postings on PowerSchool regularly continues to be the most efficient and accurate way to monitor your child’s school progress.
