Distance learning reminders, updated school return date

Don’t forget to log into your Canvas account to complete your attendance assignments for each class you have that day. If they are not completed by 1 p.m., you will be marked as absent. Also, use your teacher’s designated office hours wisely to ask questions or better understand a topic.

In the principal’s letter, sent out on April 2, it was announced there is an extension of the school closure which affects all school’s connected to the Diocese of Orange. This has been done in an effort to encourage students to stay home and protect public health.

Upcoming online Stations of the Cross, mass to follow

Mater Dei’s Campus Ministry Commissioners have created a Stations of the Cross Reflection for anyone who wishes to participate. The Stations of the Cross will be followed by a week day Mass carried out by Father Mark Cruz. The pre-recorded videos can be found on your Canvas home page.
