In an effort to support public health efforts regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School will be closed from March 16 through April 24, 2020 [UPDATED]. Following Archdiocesan guidance, “This closure includes any planned school events such as fundraisers, community events, and field trips. During this time, school buildings will not be open to children, parents, or community members.” Our school will be switching to OLL Home Learning during this time, with teachers communicating specific expectations of age-appropriate daily work directly to students and parents.
