Ursuline has begun the school year with a short period of online learning complemented by a program that brings students to campus weekly for a full slate of activities, including music, technology, athletics, guidance, and wellness. After this first phase of online learning, the school plans to shift to a concurrent (hybrid) model in October and is well-prepared to shift to fully online learning, if necessary, or in-person learning when it is safe to do so. Staff are trained in all models, and will have live streaming technology in each classroom that allows teachers to instruct students on-campus and at home simultaneously.

Ursuline Academy celebrated the end of classes on May 29 with a drive-through parade on campus. Nearly all of the faculty, staff, and administration lined the sidewalks around the school with bells, pompoms, handmade signs, and facemasks to wish students well as they begin summer vacation and wrap up this historic year. Hundreds of students and parents decorated their vehicles to show their school pride and drove slowly past the line of cheering teachers with thank you signs for the school and faculty. The school used the event to celebrate the hard work of everyone in their transition to remote learning over the last ten weeks of school and allow students, staff, and teachers say good-bye to one another.

Kate Levesque '77, President
