  • List of Acceptable Chromebooks

    Saint Patrick Catholic School incorporates Chromebooks into our middle school classrooms to encourage collaboration and digital literacy among our students. Chromebooks have proven to
    be beneficial and productive. Because of the safety and application integration advantages, we require Middle School students to use Chromebooks in order to comply with our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy. By utilizing Chromebooks as opposed to other devices/operating systems, we are better able to monitor and encourage students’ online safety as well as have all students working in the same applications and digital “environment” from class to class, teacher
    to teacher.
    As you look ahead to Middle School next year, here are a few facts that may help your family decide on a Chromebook for your student. We recommend choosing a Chromebook with the following:
    ● Robust screen and hinge design,
    ● More than 4GB RAM for multitasking,
    ● A long battery life, and
    ● An 11-13 inch screen. Because students need to bring home their device everyday, a screen size around 11-13 inch would be more lightweight and portable to carry, although larger screens are certainly allowed.
    Why Chromebooks? Chromebooks have Apps pre-installed to your student's @mystpcs.org school Google account. When a student logs into a Chromebook with their @mystpcs.org address, they will have all of the school Apps in their Apps launcher. (Note: If your student does not know their @mystpcs.org account, details will be provided at the start of the school year.)
    Also, the Chromebook operating system, Chrome OS, updates itself automatically. Students do not need to manually update their Chromebooks. Chromebooks use the principle of "defense in
    depth" to provide multiple layers of protection against viruses and malware. By logging in with their school account, Chromebooks seamlessly integrate with the Google Apps for Education
    suite of productivity and collaboration tools.
    Some Chromebooks that have good reviews for students are listed below. You are not required to select a device from this list if you find a different Chromebook that fits your budget/needs.
    Acer Chromebook 314 or 714
    Acer Chromebook Spin 713 or 311
    ASUS Chromebook Flip C434 or C214
    Dell Chromebook 11 (3100)
    HP Chromebook 14A G5
    Lenovo Chromebook Duet
    Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5
    Samsung Chromebook 4

    The first tuition payment is due July 31st.  

    Saint Patrick Catholic School will email a bill to you monthly, then you may choose several options to pay it.  

    Additional tuition and payment questions may be directed to Gail Phipps.
  • Q: Does the school have an emergency notification system?  How will I find out if there is an early dismissal, school cancellation, or late start due to weather?

    We use a telephone broadcast system called SchoolMessenger. This system will enable school personnel to notify all households and parents, by phone, within minutes of an emergency or unplanned event causing early dismissal, school cancellation, or late start. If needed, it may also be used to communicate general announcements or reminders. We will continue to report school closings due to inclement weather on the radio, local TV stations, and website. This system will be used in conjunction with public announcements.

    When used, the service will call phone numbers in our contact lists and deliver a recorded message from a school administrator. The service is capable of delivering a message to a live answer and answering machine or service. Unanswered calls (phones ringing over 40 sec.) and busy signals will be automatically retried twice, in fifteen minute intervals, after the initial call.

    If at any time you think you may have missed a SchoolMessenger voice message, you may dial our Message Retrieval Line. Using your message designated phone, dial toll-free: 855-955-8500 and follow the prompts to hear any/all messages sent through SchoolMessenger over the last 30 days. Please contact the school if you suspect your phone number is not being called by the system or if you ever have a phone number change.

    Important to know:
    1) This requires NO registration by the parent on the SchoolMessenger website.
    2) All information and contact numbers are strictly secure and confidential and are only used for the purposes described herein.

    Here is some specific information you should know:

    Caller ID:
    Your Caller ID will display 757-440-5500, which is the main number for school.

    Live Answers:
    There is a short pause at the beginning of the message, usually a few seconds. Answer your phone as you normally would and hold for the message to begin. Multiple “hellos” will delay the message. Inform all family members who may answer your phone of this process.

    Answering Machines:
    If the call is answered by a machine or answering service it will be detected and the massage will play for recording purposes. The phone will ring for up to 40 seconds. Make sure that your machine or service answers after four rings or you may miss the message.

    Message Repeat:
    At the end of the message you will be prompted to "press any key" to hear the message again. This is very helpful when a child answers the phone and hands it to a parent, who can then "repeat" the message.
