In light of recent developments related to the COVID-19 virus, and out of an abundance of caution concerning the health and safety of our students and staff, the Christian Brothers High School campus is temporarily closed to all academic, athletic, and extracurricular activities. This puts the CBHS community in the strongest position to safeguard students and staff, and it provides future flexibility in our response to this unprecedented set of circumstances.

We are resolved to support our students and families, especially while navigating our collective way through these uncertain days. We appreciate everyone's cooperation and trust during this time.

FAQ - School Concerns

List of 5 frequently asked questions.

  • What does this mean for our students?


    Although our campus is temporarily closed, learning never stops. To that end, our teachers and students now follow a modified instructional schedule, leveraging our online Learning Management System (LMS) and the Microsoft Teams platform for a truly interactive classroom experience daily. We remain committed to providing a meaningful education, rooted in Lasallian principles, for our students until we return to campus.

    Every student had working knowledge of our LMS prior to campus closing and was equipped with a school-issued laptop, which made for a seamless transition to distance learning following Spring Break.

  • What does this mean for our faculty and staff?


    Only employees essential to the operation of our school are permitted on campus at this time. All faculty and support staff that are able to teach and work remotely from home are asked to do so.

    At this time, and until further notice, all fields and facilities are closed to the public.

Mental Wellness

  • Tips to Maintaining Emotional Well-Being


    While protecting our physical health is imperative right now, it is also important to be mindful of our emotional well-being. Our CBHS counselors have shared the following guidelines and suggestions for maintaining mental wellness during this time of social isolation.

    • STAY CONNECTED. While the consequences of social distancing and isolation may affect everyone differently, it’s important for each of us to stay connected with friends and family. Attending daily online classes is part of that, but it’s also helpful to call or FaceTime with friends and family members daily when you can’t see them in person.
    • STRUCTURE YOUR DAY. Try to stick to a normal schedule. Get up and dressed as if you were heading into your regular weekday routine. Schedule a set time to study, exercise, etc. Seniors preparing for college, this is great practice for improving your ability to handle unstructured time in a productive manner.
    • LIMIT MEDIA EXPOSURE. Media overload can increase stress levels. Avoid a constant stream of news reports and limit the number of times you check news updates during the day.
    • FOCUS ON WHAT YOU CAN CONTROL. To avoid feelings of helplessness and boost empowerment, focus on the things you can control, make an action plan, and do something each day towards your end goal. For example, if your goal is to boost your GPA, focus your efforts on turning in all assignments daily and dedicating extra time to your studies. Think of your long-term goals and how you can do little things each day to accomplish those, or concentrate on an area of self-improvement by asking yourself, “How can I come out of this better?” Lose a bad habit, learn a new skill, take up a new hobby, set a new fitness goal, become a better neighbor or friend.
    • TAKE CARE OF YOUR PHYSICAL HEALTH. Get exercise. If the gym is closed, go for a walk or a run. Physical activity helps reduce stress and cortisol levels. Stay hydrated – drinking water can also help moderate stress hormone levels, as does getting enough rest. The revamped school schedule can provide extra time to catch up on your sleep. Teenagers need at least 8-9 hours per night.
    • FIND THE POSITIVE. Look for the good in each day and share stories about how our community and those around you are responding positively. Thank those who are working to keep our communities safe.
    • HELP OTHERS. Reach out to friends and relatives to see how they are doing. If you are a natural introvert, this is a great time to check on your extroverted friends who thrive on social contact! Look for opportunities to support others or offer encouragement to those who are struggling.
    • EXPLORE NEW POSSIBILITIES. Even with continued academic requirements; you likely have extra time in your schedule. Use it to learn something new, set a goal for yourself, create a vision board, read a book for pleasure, take a virtual college tour, enjoy family activities, spend time in prayer, learn relaxation techniques, or explore resources like online museum tours that are now free to the public.
    • ASK FOR HELP. Always, if you experience feelings of overwhelming anxiety, sadness, or depression, let a caring adult family member, counselor, or friend know.
