Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s),

The new school year promises to be a very special year for all of us. There will be many reasons to celebrate this year. There will be many opportunities for us to show our gratitude for each other. We have all experienced grief, frustration, challenges and in the stillness examples of our own personal resilience. Through our faith we know we have not been alone. Our loving God has been with us and guiding us through this long challenging time in our lives. We are ready to return as one community under one roof working together as one learning community!

If your child misses any of these days – he/she may not begin the school year until you (parent) meet with me (Ms. Valgoi).

Please be assured that the health and safety of your child is our greatest concern! For this reason, as a school community, we will ALL be wearing masks and completing a Covid-19 Screener as well as getting a temperature scan everyday when we enter the building. As a school community we believe this is an expression of our concern and respect for each other. 

All students must be in proper dress code to be admittedThis includes facial hair and an appropriate haircut.  Students that do not meet these standards will be sent home until they are in compliance and return with a parent.

Monday, August 30th the school day begins at 7:30 a.m. with Prayer and Announcements in the Student Commons. What a glorious sight it will be to see your beautiful children’s faces as they return to the school building! Our day ends at 3:25pm.  No classes or work are held on Friday, Sept. 3rd or Monday Sept. 6th due to the Labor Day holiday.   Classes resume on Tuesday, September 7th – first day of work for 11th grade only.

Meet the Teacher Night is a mandatory event for all parents -- Wednesday, September 22nd from 5:30 – 8:15 p.m.  Parents meet in “The COMMONS” to get a class schedule and directions.  At 6:10 p.m. parents go to each of their child’s classes and meet the teachers. The evening will conclude around 8:15 p.m.
