Good morning Trinity,
During our last faculty meeting, concern was raised by the faculty regarding face masks. Given the rise of active COVID cases everywhere including Manchester, which is designated in the red zone because of substantial community spread, Trinity’s Reopening Taskforce adjusted our protocols to require students to wear face masks throughout the day regardless of the classroom density. The lunchroom, with the plexiglass partitions, is the one exception. This expectation is a common expectation for schools that are in session. We believe that this will help diminish the risk to our students, staff and our vulnerable faculty and help us remain in school. We thank everyone for their cooperation.
Please remember Tuesday, Nov. 10, is a “blizzard bag” day. Students do not report to school, but they will be provided lessons for all of their classes via Google Classroom by 9:00am. Students are to complete and submit the assigned work to their teachers via Google Classroom by 5:00pm. Attendance will be recorded based on the work submitted. Additionally, Nov. 10 is time set aside for parent/teacher conferences via Zoom. You may sign up for conferences using the PTC Wizard link https://trinityhighschool.ptcwizard.com/parent.
Many parents, grandparents and other family and friends look forward seeing their child’s name listed in The Union Leader for the honor roll, and Trinity is proud to publicly recognize these students. Unfortunately The Union Leader has informed us that it is no longer publishing schools’ honor rolls. You will find ours listed on our webpage under academics as well as being displayed in our hallway.
In addition to Nov. 10 being a blizzard bag day, next week will be a very atypical week. The schedule for the week follows:
Monday - Block D Day
Tuesday - Blizzard Bag Day (students do not report to school)
Wednesday - No School - Veterans Day
Thursday - Skinny A Day
Friday - Block A Day
Please note that Wednesday, Nov. 11 there is no school due to Veterans Day. We take this day to honor our men and women who have served our country. We thank all of our veterans and their families for their commitment, and we pray . . .
A Prayer for Our Veterans - shared by the Archdiocese of Baltimore before a Baltimore Ravens game in Nov. 2013
Loving God, We ask for blessings on all those who have served their country in the armed forces. We ask for healing for the Veterans who have been wounded, in body and soul, in conflicts around the globe. We pray especially for the young men and women, in the thousands, who are coming home with injured bodies and traumatized spirits. Bring solace to them, O Lord; may we pray for them when they cannot pray. We ask for, echoing John Paul II, an end to wars and the dawning of a new era of peace, as a way to honor all the veterans of past wars.
Have mercy on all our Veterans. Bring peace to their hearts and peace to the regions they fought in. Bless all the soldiers who served in non-combative posts; May their calling to service continue in their lives in many positive ways.
Give us all the creative vision to see a world which, grown weary with fighting, Moves to affirming the life of every human being and so moves beyond war. Hear our prayer, O Prince of Peace, hear our prayer.
