Dear SPC Families,

What a tremendous joy it is to have our buildings full of children again! It has been absolutely wonderful seeing everyone back on campus, even if it is through a mask. I would like to thank you for all the gratitude that has been shared with my staff and me. We have been working hard all summer to ensure that we have a safe school year, and your gratitude means a lot! We know we will have to make some adjustments along the way, but we appreciate your partnership in making this possible!

For this all to work, I need all parents to comply with all safety guidelines, here are a few reminders:

  • Masks must be worn on campus at all times! Masks must be worn properly with your mouth and nose covered. No exceptions. 
  • The only parents allowed out of their cars at morning drop off are Preschool, PreK and Kindergarten parents.  
  • Send forms to school with your child and notify your child’s teacher that the forms are in the backpacks.. No parents are allowed in the main offices. 
  • 7th and 8th grade parents: please read the notice that I sent to you about drop off earlier today. 
  • At dismissal--there can be no loitering or chatting. Please leave campus ASAP, we need to clear the campus so that other parents can come and park.
  • NO PARKING ALLOWED AT ANYTIME IN THE FM GLOBAL LOT or in RYAN PARKE.  Please be respectful of our neighbors.

I truly appreciate everyone’s vigilance in making sure we remain open. The recent news of some schools having to switch to remote learning is a firm reminder that we must follow the infection protocol and safety guidelines.

If your child is exhibiting any COVID related symptoms (and I know some of them are also allergy related symptoms which complicates the situation), they must still be cleared by a doctor. When you call your pediatrician, please tell them that your child is back in school for in-person learning, and they will respond accordingly. We know children exhibit symptoms differently, so we all need to be extra cautious. I appreciate your cooperation.

The Archdiocese has created a chart that outlines a number of different scenarios and potential outcomes for COVID related situations:

Thank you all for your cooperation. We are all in this together!
