Principal Dispatch—April 24, 2020

Dear ICCP Families and Friends,
The recent announcement that in-person teaching will be suspended through the end of the school year has created many, many items on the administration’s to-do list. We have been receiving questions from students and parents about our school’s plans moving forward. But first, we’d like to lead off with a Tribute to the Class of 2020 – Through this Together. Here’s a 10-minute video in honor of our seniors. We miss you, love you, and we want you to know that you are valued members of the IC Catholic Prep League of Knights.

Graduation is naturally on the minds of all of our seniors and, as I shared last Friday, we have tentative plans in place to recognize our students. I hope everyone understands that this type of planning takes some time to make sure we are following any guidelines from the state and to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved.
