30 October Virtual Backpack

-During these COVID times, if you ever are in doubt about the health of your student, or you are concerned about exposure, please keep that student at home until there is clarity about their situation.  Or, if a member of the household is awaiting a COVID test result, please keep the student home.  This will help ensure the safety of others.


-As you start to think of plans for Thanksgiving, it is suggested you do whatever you can to reduce your risk of COVID transmission.  No one wants to move to the remote schooling option, and the best way to avoid that is by using the face mask, and avoiding contact with those outside of your household.  So, this will make your Thanksgiving a different one most likely, but we are trusting our families will do what they can to keep our students safe and in school.

-As it gets colder, our school temperature takers may have to move indoors to get the thermometers to work properly and give an accurate number  So, if you pull up and there are no staff taking temperatures outside, that’s ok, just send the student to school and we will scan them at the door before they enter the main building.

The students and staff of St. James/Seton School need your help more than ever! As a private school, we depend on tuition and fundraisers to keep the school up and running. Currently, we are in need of donations for our SOAR fundraiser. Events like SOAR help provide funds that keep tuition affordable for families and impact operational expenses. Each classroom is full of amazing teachers that push students to deepen not only their understanding of core subjects, but also, their love for God and neighbor. We need you. We can’t have a successful event without your love, support, and generosity. Your gift truly will impact our school and community. We ask that you consider donating a gift card, silent auction item, or make a monetary donation. ANY amount is appreciated and valued.
