From the Principal...
Hello Seton Community,
It is with mixed emotions that I write to you this week. I have accepted a position as Head of School in Phoenix, Arizona and will be leaving Seton Catholic at the end of the school year. While I am excited to embark on this new adventure, I want to thank Seton's families and supporters for my four years as principal. I wish Seton well in the future.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us.
Dr. Stephanie Nardi, Principal

Welcome Mr. Nelson, Band Instructor
Hello St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School students and parents.
My name is Bill Nelson and I am very excited to be your band director this fall!
I have over 32 years of public school teaching experience; I have just retired this past June from the Ripon School District as middle school band director. This past school year I have been doing long term substitute band teaching at Xavier Catholic Elementary Schools in Appleton and the Neenah public schools. I am also the music instructor of both clarinet and saxophone at Ripon College. I am very involved with the Wisconsin State Music Association; working with talented middle school and high school musicians throughout the state.
I have a true passion for working with instrumental music learners! I strive to create a community of learners that nurtures this growth in a positive, fun environment.
Please look for exciting information from me this spring on instrument selection and what things we have planned for this fall.
Beginning with the 2021-22 school year, band will be offered as an optional part of the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton program for grades 4-8. The only cost to parents beyond regular tuition, is the rental of the instrument. We are working on setting up a scholarship for families who need assistance with rental fees.

Recess Supervisor Needed
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.

Support Pride in Partnership
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.
We ask that you support these businesses by using their services and purchasing their products. If you are considering a donation to our 2021 Mane Event, consider a gift card from one of the following Pride in Partnership members.
