We welcomed students back to school September 8-11 for in-person orientation in grade level clusters and staggered groupings. Students and faculty were screened upon arrival and spent the day wearing masks and social distancing in small cohorts. The young men met with their teachers and collected their tablets and textbooks that they will use for our time of virtual education during the first quarter. Three weeks of classes have occurred and a rhythm is established which will continue until at least early November. A Task Force is reviewing options available to us that will concurrently minimize risk and ensure that a rigorous college preparatory education is provided.
Four younger brothers have joined their older siblings at La Salle this year! Our roster now includes Gregory Cleland ’21 and Zachary Cleland ’24, Ralphie Fajardo ’22 and Xavier Fajardo ’24, Nayden Villorente ’21 and Neo Villorente ’24, and Jack Walsh ’22 and Reeve Walsh ’24. In addition, we are happy to have Landon Cauchi ’24 (pictured with me at right), son of alumnus Saviour Cauchi ’88, enrolled at his father’s alma mater.
May all our students, teachers, administrators and staff members enjoy a blessed 2020-2021 school year!
