Mount Saint Charles Responds to the COVID-19 outbreak

The Mount family continues to learn with at-home, online classrooms, spiritual development, and social and emotional support

Want to make sure your students get the best education this fall?

We’re still enrolling for Fall 2020!

Responding with hope and education

The entire community at Mount Saint Charles Academy is responding to the coronavirus outbreak with an extraordinary response that puts students’ learning and social and emotional needs first.

Administrators and teachers alike made it possible for Mount to be one of the first schools in Rhode Island to launch online classrooms and learning to ensure the community’s safety. Our teachers, students, and staff have led the way in building a community that adheres to the Mount Saint Charles mission. That has continued into the start of the new school year.

Mount feels strongly that learning is a social process and that our school community is integral to our success. And while virtual schooling is not ideal, we have together developed a structure that allows to continue the learning process seamlessly.

To that end, the learning community at Mount has embraced four key pillars to ensure success, regardless of technology:

  • Learning requires individual effort and commitment
  • Academic integrity is essential
  • Respect of the learning environment is very important
  • There will be challenges, and it is our responsibility as a community to support each other in this process

For more about how proactively Mount has responded to support online learning, you can ready WPRI’s article here:  

Thanks to all of the teachers and leadership team for keeping our kids connected and focused. You really have impressed us. Thank you!

Staying connected to students through education

Our students have continued their education without missing a beat,  via both face-to-face online instruction and independent learning tasks and assignments. Mount students continue to start their day at their usual time, beginning with announcements and prayers before moving into their classrooms. By giving students a consistent schedule to follow, we are able to support our community’s academic needs while balancing the emotional and social needs of our students, their families, and our teachers and staff. The results speak for themselves – in the first week of online learning, our attendance rate for was greater than 99%!

Our classes are being taught in the face-to-face online environment offered by Google Classroom. Assignments are shared through the Mount portal – exactly the same way they would be under normal circumstances. And Wednesdays have been designated independent learning days – there is no direct teacher instruction, but teachers are available to help students as needed while they work on their assignments throughout the day.

Every single day that students learn counts as a school day, and count toward graduation requirements.

Mobilizing Students to Help

Mount students are no strangers to giving back, and they have stepped up again and again. Many have signed on to become Virtual Peer Assistants, and will be manning the Virtual Learning Center and helping other students with their learning and assignments.

Administrators, Teachers, and Staff Are Connected

We are keeping connected in similar ways to the way we would under normal circumstances. Our faculty meet-ups have moved online, and we now have remote office hours. Our administrators and teachers are also connecting with colleagues across the state, sharing their experiences and helping others adjust to an online learning environment.

Social-emotional support for all students

The social-emotional health is part of our everyday mission at Mount, and in the face of this crisis, there are unique challenges and opportunities. Mount school counselors have been proactive in developing tools and offering support to students and families, making sure that they are available all day and scheduling virtual appointments for those students who need them.

In addition, school counselors have assembled numerous resources that support a wide range of student needs. These resources are made available via the Mount student portal and students and families are notified directly when new resources are made available. These resources include:

  • tips about successful online learning
  • guidance for talking about and preparedness in the current crisis
  • updates about Mount

College Readiness

Despite the unique environment we find ourselves in, students and school counselors are continuing to work together toward preparing for college, particularly for juniors and seniors. That includes everything from SAT and AP testing preparation, college research and inquiries, and financial aid applications.

“It has been an amazing first day!! Thank you to the MSC staff and administration for being proactive and creative. The boys have been actively learning and I have heard collaboration and laughs all day. Thank you!!!”

Mount will continue to optimize in-person instruction and learning opportunities for all of our students.

The State of RI announced today that public and charter high schools will move to 25% limited in person learning models. Mount’s plan makes it possible to continue in our current cohort model on November 30th. It is of course important that families heighten their awareness of symptoms after the Thanksgiving holiday. As always, any student at any time can choose to learn virtually.

Mount’s covid safety plan, education, disinfection, and cleaning procedures have kept our school community safe. At this time, there still has been no spread to any close contact in the classroom or school setting. We thank the school community for its awareness of symptoms, commitment to staying home when necessary, communication with the school, and for following safety protocols.

As part of its plan, remember that Mount had already decided to move to full distance learning the week prior to the scheduled Christmas break and the week after our scheduled Christmas break. This plan will allow all families (including families of our staff) two weeks prior to Christmas to control their environment and social interactions and enable us all to celebrate with our families with a sense of peace. The plan will also allow the entire school community two weeks after this important holiday to distance in preparation for our return to the Mount family on January 11.

The plan is as follows:
Distance learning from December 14-18 (No longer half days)
Performance assessments will be administered throughout the remaining part of the semester
Christmas Break from December 21-January 1
Distance Learning from January 4-8
Resident students can remain on campus until December 19th and can return as early as January 3rd.
Return to in person learning cohorts on January 11
Rhode Island Interscholastic League winter sports have been pushed to a start date in January by the State of RI.

Thank you for understanding and supporting the importance of this plan as a gift to our staff and families. There is no greater gift that can be given through these uncertain times than the gift of time with our families.

Parents are reminded to sign up for virtual parent teacher conferences next week. Also remember to use this form at any time, including over the holiday breaks, to report a test or positive Covid case and assist us in gathering information to keep our community as safe as possible. Families can also email covidresponseteam@mtstcharles.org with any questions.

As we move into Thanksgiving break, know that we are thankful for the commitment our families have made to keeping each other safe. We are thankful for our heroic teachers and staff. We are thankful for a God who loves us. We wish everyone a safe and restful Thanksgiving that will allow all to recharge.

Rest in PeaceBROTHER DONALD SUKANEK, S.C., 69, a Brother of the Sacred Heart and a resident of Woonsocket, Rhode Island since 2018, passed into eternal life early Tuesday morning, November 3, 2020. Brother Donald (Donald Thomas Sukanek) was born on December 5, 1950 in Flushing, New York, to the late Charles Sukanek and the late Ruth Helena Barry, both of Long Island City, NY. He is survived by a sibling, Mr. Peter (Kathleen) Sukanek of Oxford, Mississippi, two nephews, Stephen and Kevin Sukanek, a niece, Jennifer Sukanek, several great nieces and nephews, and many cousins.

As a pre-novice, Brother Donald entered the formation program for the Brothers of the Sacred Heart on September 6, 1968 at Msgr. McClancy Memorial H.S. in East Elmhurst, New York. He became a novice on August 14, 1969 at Coindre Hall in Huntington, New York, and he professed his first vows back at Msgr.
McClancy H.S. on August 15, 1970. The Brothers’ chapel at McClancy was also the site of his final vows on August 14, 1976, and there was a great celebration in that very place when Brother Donald marked the 50th anniversary of his first profession just a few short weeks ago.

During his years in ministry, Brother Donald served as an English and religion teacher, guidance counselor, youth minister, and campus minister in several of the Brothers’ schools. He also served as Director of Postulants, Vocation Director, Master of Novices, local Religious Superior, Provincial Councilor and Provincial in the New York Province and, more recently, as Provincial Councilor in the Province of the United States. The real joy in Brother Donald’s life was working with young people, and he did it with great zeal and much joy in East Elmhurst, NY; Phillipsburg, NJ; Metuchen, NJ; Brooklyn, NY; South Ozone Park, NY; and, since 2018, with young Brothers in formation, in Woonsocket, RI. But even after traveling to several cities and states to evangelize youth, Brother Donald will probably be most fondly remembered for his 34 years of dedicated service to the young men, and more recently, to the coed student body of Msgr. McClancy Memorial High School.

In the classroom, Donald supported young people with his prayers and his presence to meet every challenge at school and in their lives. As campus minister, he led his young charges to become prayerful and considerate in thought, word and deed. Donald’s warm smile and personal example gave everyone who encountered him just a glimpse of a kind and compassionate man who took the call to live the life of Jesus, meek and humble of heart, to his own heart! He will always be the epitome of what it means to be a Brother of the Sacred Heart for those who were blessed to call him “Brother.”

Due to COVID, Brother Donald’s cremated remains will be buried in the Brothers’ cemetery at Saint Joseph High School in Metuchen, NJ, during a private, Brothers’-only prayer service in the next few days. A memorial Mass and dinner commemorating Brother Donald’s life will be held at such time that we can properly gather to remember, pray for and celebrate our Brother.

Donations can be made in Brother Donald’s honor to the Brothers of the Sacred Heart Foundation (4600 Elysian Fields Ave., New Orleans, LA 70122) or to Msgr. McClancy Memorial High School (71-06 31st Ave., East Elmhurst, NY 11370).

Rest In Peace ❤️BROTHER NOEL LEMMON, S.C., 92, a Brother of the Sacred Heart and a resident of Baton Rouge, Louisiana since 2007, passed into eternal life at Our Lady of the Lake Hospital on the Memorial of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, a community feast day, on Friday, October 16, 2020. Brother Noel, born Henry Louis Lemmon, Jr., on September 28, 1928 to the late Henry Lemmon, Sr., of Patterson, LA, and the late Georgie Rettig of St. Francisville, LA, was a native of Lafayette, Louisiana. He is survived by his blood brother, Mr. Dale Lemmon of North Carolina, and several nieces and nephews. He is also preceded in death by sister, Mrs. W. C. McHugh.

As a pre-novice, Brother Noel entered the formation program for the Brothers of the Sacred Heart on September 8, 1945 at Metuchen, New Jersey. He became a novice on August 14, 1946, and while in Metuchen he professed first vows on August 15, 1947. The Brothers’ chapel at Saint Stanislaus in Bay St. Louis, MS, was the site of his final vows on June 10, 1953, and in 2017 there was a great celebration when Brother Noel marked the 70th anniversary of his first profession.

During his years in ministry, Brother Noel served as teacher, pilot and instructor, prefect, Junior Master, Director of Maintenance, Dean of Students, Transportation Director, Director of Admissions and local religious superior. He ministered to young people in Brooklyn, NY; Daphne, AL; New Orleans, LA; Bay St. Louis, MS, and, since 2007, in Baton Rouge, LA. Even though he professionally ministered in all these roles and institutions for over 70 years, Brother Noel will probably be best remembered for his service as Director of Camp Stanislaus for 30 years. As “Camp Director,” he assured that Camp provided an exciting, fun-filled summer experience for thousands of young campers, ages 9 – 15 – or thereabouts. As “Brother Director,” Brother Noel provided a formation for boys – campers and counselors, alike – to become “Men of Character.” Both in word and deed, Brother Noel offered many a young man practical wisdom and a model of prayer, selfless service and a devotion to others that profoundly influenced them for life. He will always be the epitome of what it means to be a Brother of the Sacred Heart for many.

The consummate teacher, Brother Noel donated his body for the furthering of science. So, we will hold no funeral. However, a memorial Mass and dinner celebrating Brother Noel’s life and ministry will be held at such time that we can properly gather to remember, pray for and celebrate our Brother.

Donations can be made in Brother Noel’s honor to the Brothers of the Sacred Heart Foundation (4600 Elysian Fields Ave., New Orleans, LA 70122) or to Camp Stanislaus (304 South Beach Blvd., Bay St. Louis, MS 39520).
