St. Jerome School Weekly Reminders

Week of September 5th, 2022

“Love follows knowledge.”

St. Thomas Aquinas

Reminders for the Week:

*Click here for the St. Jerome Parish Sunday Bulletin; please join us for Sunday Mass each week: 4:30 PM (Saturday Vigil), 6:30 AM, 8:00 AM, 9:30 AM & 11:00 AM. The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is offered on Saturdays from 3:30 PM to 4:15 PM or by appointment.


*Below are diagrams for morning and afternoon drop off. The only major change is that all grades (including PreK) will be dismissed at 2:35 PM to allow for time for parents to enter car line and park. We have an increase in car riders this year with the growth of our early childhood programs and 7th & 8th graders not being permitted to ride the bus at this time. We appreciate your patience and cooperation to ensure the safety of our students. We are continually reviewing our procedures to make sure that arrival and dismissal are are safe and timely as possible while giving time for everyone to get used to our routines and procedures.


*Virtue of the Month for August & September: Charity


*Gym Day Schedule (1st-8th Grade Students Wear Gym Uniforms on Gym Day):
