Principal's Message

Dear Mary Star of the Sea Elementary families,

Some new directives for Catholic schools returning to in-person learning came out just yesterday.  Superintendent Paul Escala has recommended, as a precautionary measure due to the recent Covid surge and potential holiday travel of our families, that all  TK - 12 grade schools hold off on returning to in-person teaching until Tuesday, January 19.  Superintendent Escala’s recommendation reads as follows:

“Prudence dictates that caution be exercised at this time to ensure safe operations can be maintained upon a return to campus.  Therefore, we are recommending to schools who have been providing in-person instruction for TK-12 students (i.e. waivers, K-12 reopening, high-need student cohorts, day camps) to resume in-person instruction and/or on-campus distance learning on Tuesday, January 19, 2021, returning to instruction via off-campus distance learning next week.  This two-week in-person “pause” will create a safe distance between the break and a return to in-person instruction.  This action will not jeopardize a school’s previously approved waiver or reopening status with public health.”

In consideration of the health and safety of our MSSE Family, we will follow the recommendation. Regular Class2Cloud online learning will resume for all students on Wednesday, January 6 at 8:30am. Following along with this pause on in-person teaching, our Daycare Learning Pod will also be closed for the time being.  Our faculty and staff will continue to provide your children with the best education and support possible. Please reach out with any questions or concerns. Soon enough, we, as the MSSE Family, will be together again, happy and safe.  

God bless, 

Mr. Cordero
