Mission

The mission of the CCD Program is to bring Christ to his people and bring his people to the realization that they are the Church. We accomplish this by teaching the love of God and sharing our faith throughout the grades from pre-school through high school. Educating the parents of our children through adult formation classes. Preparing students for their sacraments and continuing formation in their faith knowledge. Being community to each other and promoting a strong parish family support.

General Guidelines

We are following all the government and diocese mandated safety guidelines related to COVID 19. This year we are following a hybrid model for the CCD classes. With the hybrid model, the students are divided into two groups, with one group in the classrooms (in-person) and the other group in the virtual classrooms (via computer) on a given week. The groups will then alternate between in-person learning and remote learning every week. The hybrid model limits the number of students in the CCD classrooms at a given time and also provides the students an opportunity to attend the Sunday Mass in church every other week.

Being a part of the faith community means taking responsibility to do your part in ensuring the health and safety of all. All of us play a role in preventing the spread of COVID. Following are some guidelines for keeping in-person CCD classes more effective, and safe.

temperature check

Temperature Check

Parents must do a temperature check of kids at home before sending them to in-person CCD classes. Keep your child home when he or she is sick.

face mask

Face Mask

Every student must wear a mask. We won't be able to allow students in the classroom without masks.

hand sanitizer

Hand Sanitizer

Students are encouraged to do proper hand washing using soap when necessary. Use hand sanitizers when handwashing is not accessible.

social distancing

Social Distancing

Encourage your child to social distance, especially with friends and in various situations. Avoid crowding indoors or in small spaces around the classrooms or in bathrooms. Also, parents are not allowed in the hallway to comply with the social distancing rules.

arrival and dismissal

Arrival & Dismissal

There will be directions regarding when to enter and leave class coordinated by the students’ CCD teachers. The teachers will escort students to their respective classrooms.

Virtual Classroom

Students are required to be in the online classroom with their camera turned ON for the entire duration of the CCD class. Mute your microphone at all times except when communicating with the teacher.

Virtual Classroom Guidelines

Following are some guidelines for keeping remote learning more effective, safe, and appropriate.

For Parents

  • Please try to provide a quiet location in the home free from distractions.
  • Please remember that online classes are for the students. Adults and siblings should not be present during a live session unless providing the needed technical support.
  • Be aware that live sessions can unintentionally broadcast activities and family members in your home.
  • Please monitor your emails and WhatsApp groups for communications from your children's teachers. If you haven't received any email communications, ensure that emails from smsmcc.org are not classified as junk.

For Students

  • Log in to the online classroom with your church issued account only.
  • You must be in the online classroom for the entire duration of the CCD class, with video always ON.
  • Mute your microphone at all times except when communicating with the Teachers.
  • Dress appropriately as if you are in the CCD classroom.
