Customers will log into the Gerten's website, enter our school code 145, scroll through the photos/descriptions of plants and check out using a credit card. At check out, customers will write in your child's name so you receive credit for the order. We have perennials, annuals, vegetables, planters and hanging baskets.

Pass the website and school code to your family and friends. School Code--145

Delivery Date: May 6th---Just in time for Mother's Day

School start times possibly changing in Robbinsdale School District

I contacted the Robbinsdale District office regarding their discussion on school start times. They have a few more parent focus group meetings and Robbinsdale school board will make a decision at their April board meeting.

Currently, our school day is based on the high school school day due to bussing. So we are still unsure if our Sacred Heart school time will remain the same or change. I will keep you posted and I hope to have more information in April.

Traveling out of state

The School Advisory Council reviewed our travel policy last Wednesday night and we have decided to continue with our current travel policy until the end of the year. We have been very fortunate that we have had very few COVID cases at school and we want to continue with our current safety protocols. We know there are always certain circumstances, so please contact Karen Bursey to talk about your trip and the expectations for when you return.

Travel Policy

If students/staff travel out of state, then one of the following will be required:

1. Students/staff may return after 7 days as long as a COVID test is taken 3-5 days after returning from your trip and the test is negative.

2. Students/staff may return after 14 days if NO COVID test was taken after you returned from your trip.

NEW from CDC for adults, including staff that have been vaccinated:

If teachers and staff have completed the COVID-19 vaccine (two doses in a two-dose series or one dose in a one dose series) will NOT need to quarantine if they are identified as close contacts as long as all of the following are true:

  • The COVID-19 exposure was at least 14 days after their vaccination series was fully completed.
  • The COVID-19 exposure was within 90 days of their final dose of the vaccination series.
  • They do not currently have any symptoms of COVID-19.
