"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9
Dear St. Luke Parents,
We made it! We are back on campus beginning Monday, August 24. Here on campus, we are preparing for a wonderful school year. Our teachers have been training to provide the best possible educational experience for your scholar. In addition to training in academic areas, the teachers have trained in health and safety protocols for COVID-19. We are very much aware of the seriousness of COVID, but we are prepared and ready to come together in community. Below are a few reminders:
Office Hours: 7:30-4:30
New School Hours: Breakfast begins: 7:00am
Morning Assembly: 7:50
Dismissal PreK3-2nd grade: 3:30
Dismissal 3-8th grade: 4:00
Arrival: Students must wear a mask. Mask should be clean. If you need an additional mask, please contact the office. There is a health screening and temperature check prior to exiting the car. Parents do not exit your car.
Dismissal: Use the car line please! Do not exit the car. Students will be lined up in front of the school for pick up.
In an effort to limit the spread of COVID, parents will not be permitted on campus. Parents must enter through the office, if picking up their child for an appointment.
Lunch: Lunch is provided for all students. In an effort to provide social distancing, lunch periods have been adjusted to limit only one class at a time in the cafeteria.
Classrooms safety: All rooms on campus have sanitizer dispensers located at the doors. Students will sanitize their hands prior to entering and leaving a room. Further, dividers have been put in place to limit contact. Students will wear masks during class periods.
Water bottles: Students will need a refillable water bottle. Plastic or metal is acceptable. Please put your scholar's name on the water bottle!
Water fountains: We are having bottle filling stations installed. Water fountains will be turned off, and students will use water bottle filling stations during the day.
Mass and Meet the Teacher: Sunday, August 23, 2020. 9:00am Mass. Meet the teacher and drop supplies afterwards, 10-10:30.
We are heading into an area of uncharted waters. For students, families, faculty, and staff, not knowing what is to come is very frustrating. I ask that you be mindful that the first week of school will look different and might have a few bumps to smooth out. Remember, God is with us; with courage and strength we will have success.
Looking forward to Monday. Your partner in faith and education.
