Thank you!

We would once again like to thank you for your care and kindness throughout this time. Our students were wonderful this week and kind to their peers.


Your children's teachers took the time to talk with them about how masking is a family's choice and that we are respectful of those choices.


St. Damian School has no children in quarantine! That is wonderful news!!! We hope to continue this trend.


We did reach out to The Archdiocese of Chicago regarding specific numbers. Across The Archdiocese of Chicago, there are only five positive cases this week. That is quite a drop compared to one month ago when they were reporting 150 cases a day. The overall positivity rate for Chicago is 3%.


At St. Damian School 100% of our faculty and staff are vaccinated and 17% of our students. If your child is vaccinated and you have not yet turned in the vaccine cards, please do so.


With the numbers decreasing, we will now open the all school liturgies to our parents beginning on Tuesday.


We can also go back to have food and beverages at activities!


We continue to ask if your child has symptoms, please keep your child home.


Your support is greatly appreciated.

Second Root Belief

Our second root belief we will introduce to our students is "We are all created in the image and likeness of God." We believe we are created in the "image of God." We are NOT God, but created to be like Him and reflect what He is like. We will reflect on what this means and how we are able to live this out in our daily lives.


Our first all school meeting was well received and our children could not have been more receptive. We hope that you take the time at home to talk with your children about our "root beliefs."
