Adoration Paused
Sadly, public Eucharistic Adoration ends tonight (Thursday, March 26), but shortly before 7 PM, Fr. Izen will come outside with the monstrance and bless whomever is parked in the street or St. Mary's parking lot.
 
It is important that you remain in your cars, Father Izen will come to you. Just plan on being parked by 6:50/6:55.  See you tonight, in your car!

Home Learning Materials Pickup Monday, March 23

All families  (Preschool-8th Grade) should plan to pick up your child(ren)’s home learning materials on Monday, March 23rd from 9-12 or 3-6. 


It would be helpful if you have your carpool name-sign in your passenger-side window. Please enter the back parking lot from the Church end of the building and pull forward to the Gym entrance. We will bring your child(ren)’s materials to you. For everyone’s safety, we ask that you stay in your vehicle and either pop your trunk, or we will open a side door when we bring the materials to you.


We will also be returning any medications your child had in the Health Room at that time, as well as distributing available Chromebooks to families who requested them. All will be brought right to your vehicles. Thank you!

 

Home Learning and School-Home Communication Will Take Place through Google Classroom

St. Croix Catholic School will be using Google Classroom as the platform for Home Learning. Please refer to the March 18 Constant Contact message, sent to all families (preschool - Grade 8) that walks you through the log-in process.  Home Learning begins the week of March 23. If you have not already logged in and familiarized yourselves with Google Classroom, please do so before Monday, March 23. Please note: Google Classroom will also be our main mode of School-Home communication during weeks of Home Learning.

School Closure Announcement
(please refer to March 15 Constant Contact message for more details)
Having reviewed the recommendations of the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), as well as considering the decisions of other educational programs throughout the state of Minnesota, the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis is calling for the suspension of student access to Catholic elementary and high schools in the Archdiocese on or before March 18, 2020 and at least through March 27, 2020. Therefore, as already planned, SCCS will be closed Monday, March 16th and Tuesday, March 17th. Additionally, our school building will be closed during these next two weeks, and all school-related activities canceled.
