Recognition & News
Construction began at Holy Family on April 20th, 2020! This marks the beginning of the progress that we have waited so long for.
We are truly inspired by our friends and families that support us in so many ways. It is particularly wonderful when your support enhances the school environment in both beauty and function. Thank you for sharing our campaign vision - Mission Ready! Growing to Serve.
In accordance with direction provided by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, and in the best interest of the health and safety of our students and staff, Holy Family Catholic School will follow Round Rock ISD schools and offices and remain closed for the remainder of the 2019 -2020 school year. We will continue to provide Distance Learning through the end of the school year calendar. We will have more information soon about picking up personal belongings and materials. All of the faculty and staff appreciate the support and partnership our families have provided us during this challenging time.
Governor Abbott extended the stay home order through the end of April. As a result, schools are now to remain closed through May 1 and are scheduled to open on May 4. In the meantime, Holy Family will continue distance learning.
Understandably, this is a disappointing, though not surprising, development. We would all prefer to go back to our normal routines. Nevertheless, during this difficult time, we have witnessed Holy Family come together as a community of learning and a community of faith to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, families, faculty, and staff and continue to provide quality instruction. In doing so, we have lifted each other up both in action and prayer to make the transition to online learning as smooth as possible, and we are confident that this Holy Family Spirit will continue help us rise to the challenge.
We want to thank the entire community for the amazing faith, hope, and love with which you have responded to the current crisis. Thank you to our faculty and staff for their preparation and ongoing work to make online instruction happen. Thank you to our students for their openness to this new process and willingness to participate. And thank you to our parents and families for their ongoing support and prayers.
As a reminder from Dr. Wagner's March 17th letter, "In the event that your family faces financial difficulties due to work changes, please contact the Business Manager by email." We want to support our families during this crisis in whatever ways we possibly can.
Please continue to keep Holy Family in your prayers, and continue to offer us your thoughts and suggestions as we persevere on our online learning journey and to prepare our students to shine Christ's light through their actions and lives.
With the campus remaining closed until May 4, this will affect all events during this time. Run With The Angels, initially scheduled for April 3rd, will be postponed until further notice. Thank you to everyone that has supported the event over the past few weeks. Once the new date is determined, families will have enough time to complete their fundraising goals prior to event day. The Volunteer Appreciation Mass on Thursday, May 8th, and the 8th Grade Graduation and Mass on Thursday, May 21st, have not changed. We will continue to communicate any updates or changes that may occur via the school’s newsletter, website, and social media channels.
On Wednesday, January 29, Middle school students traveled from campus to serve the community. The middle school grades were divided into groups to attend 7 different sights around the Diocese.
8th-grade students visited the Dominican Sisters of Mary Priory. There, they weeded, cleared a path, and cleaned the spacious grounds of the Priory. The students were happy to have a day dedicated to working outside and for the Sisters.
7th grade and 6th grade went to Holy Family's closely associated Churches including St. Margaret Mary, St. Mary, Our lady of the Lake, St. Thomas More, and St. Wiliam. They cleaned the grounds and inside of the churches.
The students also traveled to Our Lady of the Rosary Cemetery and planted much-needed trees around the main sections of the cemetery. While they were there, they stopped to pray at various grave sites where they knew family members.
It was a beautiful day to experience serving the community!
