All Saints Episcopal School extends spring break

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

From All Saints Episcopal School: 

All Saints Episcopal School will extend Spring Break March 23-25 and then begin Online Learning March 26. Classroom instruction will resume April 14 provided the local coronavirus pandemic threat has subsided.

"We have two tasks ahead of us at All Saints," Headmaster Bruce Latta said. "First and foremost, we need to keep our students and staff safe. Second, we need to continue our students' education as best we can. To accomplish these tasks, the All Saints administration and Board of Trustees decided to implement our plan for moving classes to a distance education format."

All Saints started preparing for this possibility several weeks ago. More recently, older students were instructed to bring their academic materials home over Spring Break, just in case.

"We will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as needed," Latta said. "We know we will be online until April 3, per Governor Abbott's Executive Order. If the coronavirus pandemic passes and we can get back to traditional school before Easter, we will. If we need to extend beyond Easter, we will."

TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools – TAPPS). the governing organization for Texas private schools, has suspended all competitions for athletics, academics, and fine arts indefinitely. TAPPS will adjust the athletic schedules for spring sports after the pandemic has passed. Fine arts and academics contests are being modified for online competitions.

Middle School athletic, academic, and fine arts contests are governed by the West Texas Christian Athletic Association (WTCAA). WTCAA will follow the suspension set by TAPPS and will adjust their contest schedules accordingly.

Spring Break extended: March 23 - March 25

· First day of online classes: March 26

· Resume classroom instruction: April 14, if the coronavirus pandemic threat has subsided
