Mr. Neider's Emails to Parents

March 25, 2020

Dear Parents,


During this second week of At-Home Learning, I hope that you and your family are settling into a manageable routine. Please know that we are here for you! Please feel free to reach out to the teachers, counselors, and/or administrators if you or your child are having any issues…academically or personally.


Daily prayers and weekly masses are an integral part of the CBS experience. While churches are currently not offering masses that are open to the public, many of them are streaming religious services online. You can pray the rosary and/or participate in daily and Sunday masses at the St. Louis Cathedral via the internet at St. Anthony of Padua Church is streaming masses via Facebook live. Please go to St. Anthony of Padua, New Orleans on Facebook to view their masses. St. Anthony is streaming masses Monday - Saturday at 9:00 am and Sunday at 11:00 am. On Sundays, there is also a 9:00 am mass in Spanish.  


Beginning Monday, March 30, the campus will be closed unless an appointment is made with Mr. Scaffidi or me. If you need to pick up any items from the school, you may do so tomorrow or Friday from 9:00 - 11:00. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. 


By now, you should have received your child’s 3rd Quarter Report Card. If you have not, please contact Mrs. Joy in the school office at 504-488-4426. If you have a question about a grade, please contact the teacher of record for that class. These report cards do not need to be returned to school. 


In closing, Please join me in the following prayer from Archbishop Aymond:

Loving and faithful God, the coronavirus reminds us that we have no power and we are 

dependent on you. We place ourselves in your loving hands. Please give eternal rest to 

all who have died from the virus. Please put your healing hand on those who are ill, and

give your protection to us in this time of fear and uncertainty. Please, calm our fears and

help us to trust you as our faithful God. We ask this through Christ our Lord. 

Our Lady of Prompt Succor, pray for us in this time of need! Amen.

Dear Parents,


I hope your family was able to successfully navigate the first day of At-Home Learning which took place yesterday. Thank you for your patience as we establish the routines and procedures to make this endeavor a reality. Please know that the teachers are working extremely hard to manage this At-Home Learning. If you are experiencing difficulties with the schoolwork in any way, please contact your child's teacher. In addition to teachers checking their emails on a regular basis, they also have designated "Contact Hours". I have attached the most recent schedule of Contact Hours for the Canal Street Campus teachers.


Our school counselor, Mrs. Roussel will continue to be available to the students. I encourage you to read the attached letter from the CBS Counselors. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Roussel. She is a great resource to help your child manage this potentially stressful situation.


Third Quarter Reports Cards were supposed to be distributed to the students today. We plan on mailing the Report Cards and any earned Honor Roll Certificates on Monday, March 23.


Until further notice, the school office will be open Monday - Friday from 9:00 - 11:00. Please do not hesitate to contact us.



Richard Neider
