From the Desk of the Principal: Reopening Plan
As we released the Reopening Plan yesterday, it was done so with much thought and planning. During the upcoming weeks, the school community will work together to plan proper implementation to ensure safety for all. It will be a daunting task but one that we will accomplish TOGETHER. Many of you have already reached out for specific questions and we are certainly anxious to answer them all. For procedural issues, we plan to release several video tutorials to alleviate confusion, answer questions and prepare students for what the school day will look like so stay tuned!
For now, determine which learning option is best for your family:
**For those who completed the remote learning survey, this is not binding. We will reach out to each family who submitted an inquiry to discuss your decision. No further action is needed. Thank you for completing the survey as it helps in the scheduling/planning process. REMEMBER, all students will have two weeks at the beginning of school to determine if the option chosen is the appropriate one for them. Don't fret your decision!
Most of all, daily prayer and support is vital to the success of this school year. Let us thank God ahead of time for the joys and challenges that we will experience together.
Go Saints Forever!
Mia Orgeron, Principal
Farewell to Coach Rick LeBato After 8 Seasons with the Saints
St. Louis Catholic head basketball coach Rick LeBato informed the school Wednesday morning that he’s stepping down from his position due to concerns over the coronavirus for the upcoming school year.
Here's what Coach LeBato had to say yesterday in a interview with KPLC. “I was hoping in the summertime that everything would clear up, but we didn’t get the results we wanted, so here we are. It’s getting close to school time and I wanted to give them a chance to not be handcuffed, so they could get a good basketball coach in there,” said LeBato of his decision. “I think it is a good time to make the change that way it would help my family and also help our program.”
While with the Saints for eight years, LeBato’s team thrived compiling a record of 150-88 since 2013. During that time St. Louis Catholic won five district championships along with making the semifinal round four times in the past six seasons. He said he’ll remember his time at St. Louis Catholic most for the growth of the program.
He compiled a career record of 772-245 while he was head coach at Grand Lake, Vinton, Sulphur, Northside and St. Louis Catholic.
