Holy Cross Families:
Thank you for your support and patience as we all have been monitoring the recent developments and reactions to the COVID-19 situation. We ask for continued prayers for all affected.
The administration has determined that the health and safety of our community is of utmost importance. Therefore, the physical campus will be closed the week of March 16 - 20th. Our online education platform will begin on Wednesday, March 18th. The campus will be open for a short time on Sunday, March 15th from 10 am to noon for any student who needs to pick up their books.
The online platform will deliver course content by way of online learning through Apex and Google Classroom. Further instructions will be emailed by our faculty on Monday, March 16th. Students are encouraged to login to Google Classroom and Apex to access their assignments beginning Wednesday.
Although there is but one current case of COVID-19 in San Antonio, we take this measure in order to safeguard our most valuable commodity, your children. The implications of this decision have deep ripples for our community and include the following:
TAPPS has suspended all interscholastic activity so all practices and games are postponed starting today until further notice.
All scheduled school events scheduled before April 6 are cancelled. We will try to reschedule those events that are hallmarks of the high school experience but cannot guarantee that we will be successful.
All school travel is suspended until further notice.
We will be collaborating with the Archdiocese to determine if the above course of action will be amended as new information becomes available.

Our Lady of the Lake has informed us that they will extend their Spring Break and move to an online platform through April 13, 2020. This will, of course, affect our Dual Credit students. To get the most up to date information on their respective classes, dual credit students must login to the student portal for further instruction from OLLU and their professors.
Please rest assured that Holy Cross administrators have been monitoring the recent developments in the higher education community. However, as of today (March 12, 2020), our plan remains to resume classes on Monday (March 16, 2020). If this plan must be altered, we will keep our entire community informed as soon as possible.
