Each school day on the calendar has two letters on the date: Group A or Group B. Please note that your son's roster of either Group A or Group B determines which day on the calendar he will attend school in person. The second letter is the test day cycle (a 5 day cycle A,B,C,D or E) which determines when teachers will conduct their exams by department so that students will not have multiple exams on the same day in school.
As an example, let's look at Friday, September 18, 2020 on the calendar. It is listed as a Group B - D Day. All students with a Group B roster go to school at Father Judge in person that day. All Group A roster students are home for a virtual day of learning. It is for teachers and all students a D Day for the test cycle. If you look at the next school day, it is Monday, September 21, 2020, listed as Group A - E Day. That means all Group A roster students are in school and all Group B roster students are at home for a virtual day of learning. The test cycle day is E Day. Taking it to the next day, September 22, 2020, it is a Group B - A Day. You will notice that the test cycle day simply repeats every five school days throughout the school year.
We have set Baccalaureate Mass for June 8, 2020 and Commencement for June 9, 2020. The details and format for each of those important events for seniors and their families will be released later in the school year and will be based on the existing pandemic and safety guidelines set by state and local authorities. We thank you for your support and prayers as we find creative ways to plan for the traditional events cherished by our students and families in a time of some uncertainty.
