Halo Highlight: Saints March On

Dear St. Louis Catholic Community,


As we continue to navigate each day of the coronavirus pandemic, thank you for your commitment to remote learning at St. Louis Catholic. We know we will be closed through April 30, so we can tell you that spring break will be observed (lessons will be due tonight at 11:59pm, next Thursday, April 9 at 11:59pm, then the next round of remote assignments will not be sent until Monday, April 20, and students will have until the following Sunday night to complete them).


Please know we are listening to you and your students' feedback and adapting to meet our Saints' needs. We care about their education so much and are continuing to shape them for the future. If you have any questions or concerns, never hesitate to reach out.
