Happy Thanksgiving!

As Thanksgiving approaches, it is evident what we are thankful for this year. More than ever, thankful for you, our families. We are so thankful that we are able to be in school with your children and that we are able to remain safe and healthy. Thank you for all you do. Please remember to continue to wear your masks, maintain social distancing, and be careful when planning and attending events.


Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

COVID-19 Directives

With the holidays approaching, we are encouraging everyone to please abide by the following travel order, if travel is a necessity.

The Archdiocese of Chicago is doing their best to keep up with the quickly-developing pace of the COVID-19 pandemic as the state is seeing some significant increases in the general infection rate in greater Chicago.


Throughout the Archdiocese, consistent with cases throughout the year, most situations involve individuals who become infected outside of school. We want to encourage you all to continue to be very vigilant and limit gatherings, keep your masks on, and just be safe. We appreciate you all keeping your children home even if they have the sniffles. We appreciate you communicating with us even if you think you have been exposed in the tiniest way. We appreciate your open communication! We are one team! We are Damian Strong!
