Holy Trinity is bringing students back to campus in a hybrid format beginning March 25th. Our mission, philosophy, and learning triangle remain strong and true. Teachers will continue teaching synchronous classes with both in-person and at-home students. Holy Trinity is continuing to take measures to ensure the safety of our community. We will remain in communication with the Association of Independent Maryland Schools (AIMS), Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE), and Prince George’s County Health Department while staying up to date with the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines.
The school uses Microsoft Teams as the collaborative software as it is a robust and secure product. We put deliberate and thoughtful consideration into ensuring that the end users, namely our students, will have the best experience. We are intentionally choosing tools that will support a single sign on and that all content is streamlined to accommodate our preschool through grade 8 students. Within the Microsoft Teams framework, teachers will utilize safe and dynamic instruction tools that support our curriculum and engage students.
Teachers continue to offer both synchronous and asynchronous instruction. All faculty teach from their classrooms, which are equipped with cameras and video recording systems. The instruction will be a blend of teaching using the whiteboard, demonstration of experiments, and activities. We are pleased to include Nearpod as an instructional platform to provide formative assessments and dynamic media. Mindful of the importance of social and emotional learning, regular assignments are included to connect teachers and students, students and peers. Our School Counselor will be on hand to support our student community.
Holy Trinity families continue to utilize our BlackBaud Parent Portal. Commonly referred to as “the portal,” it is the main gateway by which teachers and staff keep the lines of communication open, so that parents may stay abreast of students’ grades and progress, as well as pertinent school information of all kinds.
