ICA Cristo Rey's Safe Return
The ICA Cristo Rey Faculty and Staff are excited to be working with your daughters this school year. Plans are continuing to develop.
Covid-19 Protection Plans and Compliance Documentation
One study hall per week AND Fridays will be assigned for CWSP. During our period of distance, online learning, some students will be assigned remote work from their corporate sponsor. Other students will be engaged with online professional development, including Microsoft Excel certification. Assignments will be posted in Google Classroom. Students will have the opportunity to communicate with their CWSP supervisor during an assigned study hall period and on Fridays.
All students have a weekly study hall. A teacher is assigned who will monitor grades and assignment completion. This teacher will reach out to both the student and her parents should the student fall behind with her assignments.
On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, students have an Open Period. This time may be used to meet with an individual teacher for extra help.
As we move through the school year online, we are staying true to our roots and focusing on the four Dominican pillars: Community, Service, Study and Prayer. We will continue to begin each day in prayer and encourage everyone to submit prayer intentions. Although our Masses and Prayer Services will be online, we ask all to participate. Our hope is that when we can meet together in person, we will be able to host small group retreats. Retreats not only provide us with an opportunity to pause and reflect but also help us grow in our faith and become closer to one another. Our new Social Justice group will spearhead how we can give back and make a difference in our world today. With three main groups leading the above activities all are welcome to join: Retreats, Social Justice and Spiritual Life. These teams will assist the school in brainstorming new ideas of how to carry out these activities in our virtual world.
We welcome both Isaac Cardenas, our Mercy Volunteer, and Fatima Morales, An MSJ Dominican Candidate, who will be assisting throughout the school but also in Campus Ministry. Their expertise and enthusiasm are not to be missed.
Activities will be fluid and flexible during this school year. ICA Cristo Rey is in constant communication with the San Francisco Department of public health and will continue to make decisions that will keep the health and wellbeing of our students, families, staff, and community in the center of all our co-curricular activities. Until it is safe to gather in person, all club meetings and student activities will be virtual. Student Council will produce a weekly live "Monday Meeting" with important announcements and information for the week at 4:30pm. Questions about Activities should be directed to Mr. Greg Callaghan at email@example.com
PE & Athletics
A variety of zoom PE classes will be offered on various days at various times throughout the semester. Ms. Lauren Bell, PE Department Chair and Athletic Director will post the course offerings, dates, and times. These offerings may change. Ms. Bell will also explain how many hours a girl should attempt throughout the semester. Any questions should be directed to Ms. Bell at firstname.lastname@example.org
The California Interscholastic Federation State Office announced that the 2020-2021 sport seasons will be postponed. The start dates have been released but are subject to change in the weeks and months to come. Please visit https://www.icacristorey.org/apps/pages/athletics/welcome for more information.
The Counseling Department will continue to provide a range of counseling support services through the hybrid model.
The academic counselor, Ms. Melissa Ruiz, will be supporting students in a variety of ways. She supports students in regard to classes, grades, asking teachers for help, time management, homework completion, and studying. All academic counseling will be conducted virtually, via google meets, zoom, email, or phone. If needed she will contact parents via email, google meets, zoom, phone calls, or mail. Monthly parent newsletter will be sent out as well.
The college counselors, Ms. Gianna Benson, and Ms. Allyson Genger, will be supporting students through all the typical tasks to prepare them for college, but through virtual measures. They will support students with college exploration and planning, college applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, and financial aid. All college counseling will be conducted virtually, via college prep classes, google meets, zoom, email or phone. Virtual parent meetings will be scheduled for senior and junior parents when requested.
The Personal Counseling Department, under the direction of Ms. Arlette Molina, LMFT, will be providing social and emotional counseling support during times of heightened stress, transition, critical change, or other situations impeding student success. Along with Ms. Molina, student support will be provided with the help of Ms. Rachel Topham, a counseling volunteer, and a USF Intern to ensure students’ needs are addressed to foster resilience and student success. While long-term counseling or therapy is not provided in a school setting, appropriate resources and referrals will be given on an as-needed basis. Personal counseling support will be provided via telephone, zoom calls, and google meet sessions. In-person appointments will be provided when necessary.
