Covid-19 Guidance from the Archdiocese

Please click on this link to view the Archdiocese of Chicago's updated safety protocols for the 2021-22 academic year. The goal is to return to "near-pre-pandemic levels of operation."


Here are some highlights:

  • Masks will not be required for fully vaccinated students, staff, and teachers
  • There will be no classroom cohorts
  • Extracurricular activities may resume
  • Staggered drop-off/pick-up schedules and different points of entry/exit will no longer be required


We encourage families of vaccinated children to prepare and locate their "proof of vaccination" documentation. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office for further clarification.

Please see the video below for a message on the importance of vaccinations from Cardinal Blase Cupich.

Parent Perception Survey

In order for me to learn as much about the St. Stan's community as I can, I ask that parents and guardians please take 5-minutes to click here and complete this survey. Your responses will be valuable in helping me and the school leadership team evaluate the strengths and areas of growth for our educational, emotional, and spiritual programming.
