From the Principal...

Hello Seton Community,

We continue to be blessed by face to face learning. We are thankful and prayerful and we will continue to pray for continued health for all those in our Seton Community.


Please keep in mind---if there is a household member who has symptoms, is being tested for COVID, or has tested positive for COVID all students in the home should stay home from school. Your unique situation can then be assessed by the school office to determine when your student can return to Seton.


Also as spring break approaches, I want to take this time to remind our families of our COVID safety precautions. We are operating under an abundance of caution. If you are planning to travel over break and will be leaving the state or country, we are asking that all Seton students quarantine for 14 days after returning. The other option would be to obtain a negative COVID test taken no sooner than 6 days after returning home. We encourage all quarantined students to attend virtually. Please set up arrangements with your child's teacher.


Thank you again for all you do for our Seton School Community, and for being our partner in the health and safety of all. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us.


Sincerely,


Dr. Stephanie Nardi, Principal

A Special Thank you

Dear Dr. Nardi & Seton community,

Greetings. I hope this message finds all of you well. With great delight, on behalf of my family, I would like to extend a tremendous thank you for all the constant and loving support that have been provided to Amira and our family by the Seton community. All the prayers, love, encouragements, gifts and more have been overwhelming and endless since the beginning of Amira’s diagnosis. Words cannot express how immensely thankful to have you as a school and community. By God's grace, your prayers, love, and support have taken us through these past ten months. I love and appreciate you, but Jesus Loves you more. Thank you for your endless acts of kindness.

Thank you,
Elizabeth Schuh

40 Hours of Devotion

In celebration of the 175th Anniversary of Holy Name Parish and as a Lenten observance we are hosting 40 Hours of Devotion. This is a 40 hour period when the presence of Christ in the Eucharist, is exposed or present to us in the monstrance on the altar. It is a time of reverence and prayer. It can be a personal renewal or retreat, bringing us closer to God and enriching our faith.


The 40 hours is a commemoration of the time Christ’s body lay in the tomb, between his death and resurrection. The solemn exposition of the Holy Eucharist offers the people of God the opportunity for prayerful reflection of their call to a deeper devotion to God and more faithful living of the Christian life. It provides us with an opportunity to become more aware of Christ’s presence with his people and invites us to a spiritual communion with him.

Our 40 Hours will begin on Wednesday, February 24 at 4:00pm and will continue through Friday, February 26 at 8:15am, concluding with Benediction and followed by the Seton School Mass.


Everyone is encouraged to make time for Our Lord during these 40 hours, whether personal prayer time or sharing the Rosary or other planned prayer opportunities. Reconciliation will be available on Thursday morning from 10am until noon.

There is a requirement that the Lord in the Eucharist be always in the presence of at least two people. This is especially important during the night hours when personal safety is a factor to consider in the church.


A SignUp Genius is available to schedule times at

https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040B4FACAE2DA02-40hours


As with the sanitation practices due to Covid, we will be scheduling regular times for disinfecting the church and public areas. There will be cards at the entrances that say, “I prayed here”, to place at your seat and assist the sanitation team in their efforts. We are also looking for volunteers to help with cleaning.


By spending time in the presence of the Eucharist we nurture our love of the Lord. Three graces have been associated with this devotion; the protection from evil and temptation; reparation for our sins and for the Poor Souls in Purgatory; and the deliverance from political, material, and spiritual calamities. Here the faithful implore our Lord to pour forth his abundant graces not only for ourselves, but for our neighbors, not only for our personal needs, but for those of the world.

COVID-19 Information

You may have heard in the news that the CDC has released options to reduce the length of COVID-19 quarantines. I have attached the Sheboygan County Recommendations for your review. Seton Catholic will be using those recommendations as listed below. We will maintain a 14 day quarantine as we are in a setting with many people and the potential for spread. Please be diligent with safety precautions as we are hoping to stay face to face for your children.


14 day no symptoms, no test option:

This is a 14-day quarantine from Seton School. The quarantine begins with the start of symptoms or the day of last contact with a positive case. The student can return to school without a doctor note after 14 days and if he/she has no symptoms. These days will be tracked in the office.


7 day no symptoms, negative test option:

Quarantine can end after day 7 of quarantine with a negative test and no symptoms if the test was taken no sooner than day 6 of the quarantine. The quarantine begins with the start of symptoms or day of last contact with a positive case. The student can return to school with a dated confirmation of a negative test and no symptoms. The days will be tracked in the school office.


Please note that household contacts are handled differently as noted on the recommendations below.

The pandemic has been hard on many members of our community. Not only has it impacted our health and school routines, it has created many challenges for our local business. In response, Seton Catholic has created the Pride in Partnership program. We are recognizing local businesses who have agreed to post our Pride in Partnership flyer.
