The faculty and staff of Saint Patrick Catholic School were extremely excited to welcome students back on campus after months of diligent planning and preparation to ensure a safe and supportive environment for all Wolfhounds.
Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth grade students were the first to arrive, attending half days on Monday, August 31 through Wednesday, September 2. Sixth grade and Seventh grade students were phased in at the end of week. The Eighth grade class returned on Tuesday, September 8 to begin their final Middle School year. And this year's virtual students logged on from home on Wednesday, September 2 and are "zooming" right along.
Saint Patrick looks a little different this year. We have had to re-imagine every aspect of how we do things in order to implement our COVID Response Plan to bring students back to campus safely. Every policy and procedure, from arrival/dismissal to lunch to recess, has been modified to mitigate risk and every space on campus has been utilized so that teachers and students can have six feet of social distance in the classrooms.
Our students have adapted quickly and are taking all the new changes in stride. Our teachers are absolute heroes, doing the double duty of teaching students in person and virtually. Our staff have taken on additional duties, jumping in to support teachers when help is needed. And we recognize and appreciate our parents, and all of our Wolfhound community, for your continued support and encouragement. We're a team and we're Wolfhound Strong!
