Online Learning

Dear St. Pius X Blue Jays,
 
Due to the Nueces County Public Health order, local public and private schools were asked to provide online instruction only for the first 3 weeks of school. They declared it unsafe at that time for face-to-face instruction. 
 
We are now giving parents the option for face to face or online instruction. If we are forced to close again due to a rise in case numbers, we will follow this schedule again. 
 
All of our current curriculum we have has an online component to it and the student will have individual access to each of them. We are working on getting a single-sign-on system for the school so that the students will only have to sign in one time to access all curriculums. I will let you know when this is completed. Our teachers are ready and will be using Google Meet and Google Classroom as the main platforms for Online teaching. We will continue to prepare over the next two weeks and are excited to provide an excellent and Christ-Centered education to your child. 
 
We follow a block schedule model while we are teaching online. This gives the students longer class times for each subject and more time for the teachers to work individually with each student. 
 
We are here to support our families during this time.
Feel free to call the school with any questions or concerns. 
 
God Bless,
 
Beth Hinojosa
Principal
