St. Malachy Car Line

Thank you for making our car line an easy and quick process. Now that the year is rolling here are a few reminders:

*Please pull all the way up before stopping to pick up your child. This allows more cars to load at a time.

*If you need to buckle your child please pull up in front of Father's house (the big white house west of the school) and complete the buckling process there.

*Please be patient and leave with the line of cars in front of you, this will avoid accidental collisions.

Christmas in September

It's funny how excited people can get about the simplest of things. Our desk dividers finally arrived today! We rushed to set them up, and the students were so excited. They kept thanking us for these amazing desk dividers. You have to love their genuine excitement and appreciation.


We want to thank you for your diligence when dealing with your children's illnesses.

It is so important that we take all precautions necessary this year when a child isn't feeling well. This protects everyone at school and allows us to remain open.

If your child is sick:

1. Contact us an let us know - we will ask details

2. If your child is tested for COVID or any other illness please plan to give us a copy of the results.

3. While your child is at home, and they feel well enough to attend school, they are welcome to join us online while they wait for test results. (if they attend school online they will not be counted absent)

What if we get sick...

That is a great question! Our guidance changes on this continuously. We plan to address each illness on a case by case basis using the recommendations from the Diocese and Union County Public Health.

If you suspect your child is sick please keep them home and call us. We can help you determine what the next steps should be for your family.
