WINTER SPORTS SEASON AFTER-SCHOOL POLICIES

Dominican High School’s 2021-2022 winter sports season has begun as practices have started for both the girls and boys basketball teams.  Also starting soon will be Dominican’s Cheer Team.  We are very excited to see all of these student-athletes in action and we are hoping for a successful season.

If you have a student that is participating in any of these winter sport activities, it is important that they are aware of what the after-school protocols will look like for their team.    These protocols are listed below, and they will also be communicated to the student-athletes by their coaches.  If you have any questions regarding the after-school protocols please contact Dominican’s Athletic Director, Joe Grady at jgrady@dominicanhighschool.com or Dean of Students, Vinnie Murray at vmurray@dominicanhighschool.com.  Please review these protocols with your student-athlete and please be sure there is a plan in place for your student-athlete to exit the building at the conclusion of their practice.

DECEMBER 13 - NORMAL DAY OF SCHOOL 

Dominican has made an adjustment to its school calendar for Monday, December 13th.  Parents may have seen that date listed as an “On-Line Exam Prep” day in earlier versions of our school calendar. This date was held in reserve as we anticipated potential COVID-19 health scenarios that included higher levels of quarantined and absent students. We are pleased to report that Dominican has experienced a reduced number of virtual learning experiences and quarantines this year. 

Dominican now expects that all student exams will occur in an in-person setting from December 20-22.  As a result, the planned "On-Line Exam Prep" day is no longer needed to prepare students for virtual testing.  Monday, December 13 will return to a normal school day for all students and faculty.


   


2022 DOMINICAN AUCTION – APRIL 9
