Tuesday 3/31 Update

Dear Jaguar Family, 

Dear Companions on the Journey, 

"The sickness of a family member, friend, or neighbor is a call to Christians to demonstrate true compassion, that gentle and persevering sharing in another's pain."  St. Pope John Paul II

As the cases and the death toll of the coronavirus increases, so to our compassion and sense of understanding must also increase.  Let us pray that we continue to reach out to one another in our hour of need.  


Dr. RaeNell Houston, our Archdiocese of New Orleans Catholic School Superintendent, asked me to pass on her deep sense of gratitude and appreciation for the heroic effort teachers, students, and parents have made during this time of crisis in our community. 

School Office:  Due to the pandemic, the school office is only open with an appointment.  Most staff are working from home.  The office phone will be answered between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. through the call forward feature.

NO OFFICIAL WORD YET ON SHELTER IN PLACE EXTENSION.  PJP is making plans in the event that the Governor makes such an announcement.  Please stay tuned.

SENIOR last class day will take place no later than April 22.  IF PJP is still doing Zoom classes, the last class for SENIORs will be G period on April 22.  SENIORS ONLY  

Senior Disney Trip is officially canceled.  It will take time for Disney, the hotel, and the bus company to process the refunds.  Please be patient.   

SAFE ENVIRONMENT on ZOOM: Students MUST clearly identify themselves upon entering a zoom class session by putting their FIRST AND LAST NAME. Teachers have been asked to only admit students with first and last names.    

I agree with the Superintendent; you are all heroes for the great effort you have put into the continuation of your schooling during this trying time in our history.  

God bless

Dear Jaguar Family, 

"I plead with you -- Never, ever give up on hope, never doubt, never tire, and never become discouraged.  Be not afraid."  Pope John Paul II

I do not have any new news today, but I want to share with everyone an article that was sent to me today.  As I told the seniors today, "It is through great challenges that greatness is revealed."  Our namesake compels each of us to look beyond the adversity we face.  To do so is to be on our Lenten journey.  

I hope you enjoy and find the following article a good Lenten companion.

Prayers and blessings to all

Wednesday 3/25 Update

By PJP II High School

Dear Jaguar Family, 

"The human being is single, unique, and unrepeatable, someone thought of and chosen from eternity, someone called and identified by name."  Pope John Paul II

PJP II's statement above reminds us why we go the extra mile for our children.  God has given us unique gifts to mold into future saints, saints that give us hope for a better world.  


Schedule for Wednesday, March 25: 

G period - 9 a.m.

A period - 10:30 a.m.

B period - 1 p.m.

Thank you for the positive response to my last email.  Also, thank you for your patience and support as we navigate these uncharted waters.  We are all learning how to best serve our community during these difficult times.  

Contact Congress: Please read the following letter that was sent to me from the Office of Catholic Schools.  Also, please consider taking action; doing so will help our students and our families.  

Contact Congress on COVID-19 Relief

March 24, 2020

Dear Friends of Religious and Independent Schools,

The US Senate is currently considering a coronavirus relief package that includes aid to K-12 schools.  Currently, there is language in the legislation allowing non-public schools to receive relief. However, it appears that some are attempting to remove this language.

Please use CAPE's Legislative Action Center to urge senators to make sure that private schools are not excluded from Congress' COVID-19 relief package.

Thank you for your help.


Michael Schuttloffel


My prayers continue to be with each of you to remain safe and well. 

God bless

Tuesday 3/24 Update

March 24, 2020
By PJP II High School

Dear Jaguar Family, 

"Life is entrusted to man as a treasure which must not be squandered, as a talent which must be used well."  Pope John Paul II

Our students are the treasure that Pope John Paul II asked us to make into saints.  To be a saint means to be intentional about doing all things for the glory of God and the greater good.  We give glory to God in our families, workplace, civic settings, and in our social gatherings.  As the holy man once said, "Always proclaim the goodness of God.  Only use words when necessary." 

Special Notes: 

Third-quarter report cards will go out tomorrow evening, Tuesday, March 24. 

If you miss or misplace my email, we will begin posting email updates on the school website.  

Safe Environment: It is the norm for online high school classes to take place in an open room in the home and not in a private space, such as behind closed doors in a bedroom.  A STUDENT MUST NOT BE IN THEIR BED DURING AN ONLINE CLASS.  Parents should always be able to monitor internet use whenever possible.  Teachers are asked to record all Zoom class sessions.  You can access a recording by using the student login to Google Classroom.  

Thank you for your cooperation and support of the PJP mission.

God bless
