Attention, 2nd and 8th grade parents!
As of July, 2022, the Diocese now requires renewals to complete a 35 minute online training module called A Plan to Protect God’s Children, 4.0. If you took the Protecting God’s Children class before 2017, you will be prompted to complete the module when you login to your VIRTUS account when you go to renew.

Yearbooks from last school year
1. If there is no officer on the street to guide cars in, PLEASE take turns turning into the lot. We need to have both lines turning in to avoid a back-up on either side of Palm Valley Road.
2. Please, please, please, pull all the way up close to the car in front of you! This not only helps us unload more cars, but also helps us get more cars off the street.
3. Please put your car in park when your car is being loaded or unloaded.
4. Please do NOT turn into the neighboring communities or businesses to make a u-turn when you leave our campus!
During severe weather, we will not be using the holding area, and will only load 6 cars at a time. If your child does not come down in time, you will need to circle back around the school. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we need to keep our students and staff safe at all times. Thank you for understanding.
During times of lightning storms or tornado warnings, we will suspend carpool until it is safe to continue.
Anyone who tests positive must stay at home for 5 full days before returning to school on Day 6, provided that there has been no fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines and that other symptoms are improving. (Please note that the first day of symptoms is considered Day 0.)
Siblings of positive cases may continue coming to school as long as they are not exhibiting ANY symptoms. Please use good judgment when sending siblings to school based on the amount of exposure they have had with the positive sibling.
