Morning Drop-Off
  • Now that it is staying dark in the mornings and it is more difficult to see, please be mindful of parishioners who may be arriving for Mass early. Help keep them safe by using the appropriate drop off procedures. At East Campus, please note that this means you should be exiting by the bus shed out to Schroeder Ave rather than coming down the driveway on the side of church. At Central, please continue to allow parishioners to walk in front of the vehicles as you are stopped. We also ask for your cooperation at Central Campus in not using the West parking lot by Adoration Chapel to drop off students to catch the bus. There have been a few close calls when backing out and cars pulling in. Additionally, the students walking up from the West lot are in the blind spot of the bus and we do not want to see anyone get hurt. Thank you for your help in keeping everyone safe in the mornings at drop off.

School Reach & School Messenger

  • As the colder weather is bound to appear at some point (I hope I am not jinxing it!), we wanted to alert you to a change in our notification system for inclement weather. School Reach has been transitioned over to School Messenger, which will still alert you by phone and email. There are some different features, however, and we will share that information with you in the near future.


Congratulations to all of our students who participated in the School Spelling Bee! Special recognition goes to Miss Addison Clauss, Champion, and Mr. Ethan Fritch, Runner-Up! Addison will represent Holy Trinity Catholic School at the Tri-State Spelling Bee. Great job to all our spellers!

If they don't, please consider donating them to Koatz 4 Kids, while making room in your closet for new coats! Donation boxes are located by the school offices.
