    Hello, St. Joseph School family!


    We did it!! Elearning has concluded today. Next week teachers will be finalizing grades and preparing report cards. Thank you for your continued support and as we finish up this school year and prepare for closure. I want to personally thank all the students for their time and effort they put into Elearning. This is not how we wanted to end our year but you made the best of it and worked hard to accomplish your classwork!! I am proud to be your principal!


    Report cards will be distributed during materials pick-up June 3-5 from 12-4pm.


    Parents and teachers, I am equally proud of you. Your committment to the education of your children and the tireless efforts that you have all shown without any hestitation or formal training on how to work from home, teach your children, and run a household at the same time inspires me. It has been an honor working alongside you through all of this. Equally, it has been an absolute joy spending the last two years with you all. May God continue to bestow his blessings upon us all.


    Class of 2020 , the staff and I can not wait to celebrate your graduation with you on May 29 at 2:00. This will be a graduation celebration to remember!!


    We are in this together!

    Peace and joy, Mrs. Rybarczyk

    Curbside Student Materials Pick-up/Chromebook Return/Registration Paperwork/and Report Card Distribution

    Materials pick-up will be held on June 3, 4, and 5 between the hours of 12-4pm. Teachers and staff will be cleaning out lockers, securing personal items in a bag that families will be able to pick-up curbside. Students and parents will not be allowed into the building. Additionally, if a student has a chromebook, it should be returned at that time. Over the next couple of weeks, the teachers and office staff will be working hard to collect your child's items to place in an individually labeled bag. If there is something specific that your child needs from their classroom please reach out to your child's teacher for additional help. Report cards will also be distributed during this time.


    If you have additional questions or need additional assistance with registration paperwork for your child's next school of choice please reach out to Sylvia, Denise, or Maria and they will be happy to assist you. At this time the best way to reach the office staff is by using the following email addresses: sortega@stjosephrl.com for Sylvia, drivas@stjosephrl.com for Denise, and mtellez@stjosephrl.com for Maria.


    Thank you and don't hestitate to reach out for assistance.
