Although there was some confusion with the blessing of the animals, we were grateful that in the end Father Joel was able to say a blessing over our furry, scaly, and feathered friends. Please remind your child/ren not to use the chat feature during Mass. Sometimes the parishioners use the chat and we are requesting that our students do not chat during the Mass.

Dia de los Muertos
: Traditionally, SPN has a beautiful Dia de los Muertos Altar in the entryway to the school. To keep with our tradition of celebrating Dia de los Muertos, we are creating an outdoor Altar. Please see the flier here
for information on this year's project. The butterfly template will be provided - details coming soon.
Waiver: Per our communication last Friday, Alameda County issued a new health order now that we are in Tier 2 - Red, and the waiver process is no longer necessary. The ACOE and ACPH will establish a reopening checklist for all schools. Once this checklist is available, we will update our reopening plan to incorporate new/changed requirements.
