Halo Highlight: Statement on COVID-19

In regards to the growing concern about COVID-19 (coronavirus), please click to read this statement from the Office of Catholic Schools. I urge our Saints community to use common sense and take the precautions listed. I also ask that our community get accurate information from the leadership of SLCHS and the Office of Catholic Schools. We will stay alert and keep everyone informed. All information will come through our official school communications via email, text alert or phone call. Thank you for being proactive and supportive.


Blessings,

Mia Orgeron
