Dear St. Michael Catholic School Families,

In light of the new online and distance learning structures now in place at schools across Minnesota due to the "Stay at Home" order, the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis along with St. Michael Catholic Church and School, are taking additional steps to ensure your child's safety. As you may be aware, our teachers are using either Google or Zoom to hold "live classes." The extra precautions put into place to ensure your child's safety are:

  • An additional Essential 3 certified adult is logged into the classroom (This is either one of our staff members or a qualified parent who has their background check and essential qualifications, complete.)
  • Only classes with a passcode are being sent out 
  • Teachers keep students in the waiting room until they confirm who they are
  • The link is deleted after the class

If the class is recorded for a student who missed the class, this recording is only shared in our private St. Michael Catholic School Google or See Saw classroom with the students. 

In addition, the Archdiocese at this time is asking that we update your online and safety permissions since we are using some new online platforms for your child. Please find this form attached, sign by April 17, 2020 and return an electronic copy to Darlene casey at . If you have any questions about the steps we are taking at St. Michael Catholic School to ensure your child's safety, please reach out to Mrs. Reeder at .
