2020-21 Class Directory Form

All family contact information is pulled from Power School, and you may indicate on the form which information to share, or to opt out completely. Please make sure your contact information in Power School is correct and consistent for all of your children.
St. Louis School 2020-21 Handbook
All parents and middle school students are required to sign and return the Elementary/Middle School Handbook Agreement Form stating they have read the rules and regulations outlined in this handbook, and they agree to abide by those rules. Handbook Agreement Forms may be submitted on your child's orientation day.
Announcements
Welcome to New Staff Members
Please welcome all of our new staff to the St. Louis family. We are blessed to have a such strong, qualified staff eager to collaborate with one another and work with our families. Please pray for all of our teachers as they prepare for the new school year!
COVID Fee
A $150 per family COVID fee will be assessed to all families to assist with the extra digital software, computer hardware and technology upgrades to enable distance learning as well as additional health and safety tools necessary to meet CDC requirements for a safe return to the school building. Fees are payable directly to the school in August or will be added to your first FACTS monthly tuition bill.
Blue and White Instructional Days
"Blue" and "White" days are noted on the school calendar up until Christmas break. The color of the day indicates which group of students is expected to attend school for in-person instruction on that day; students on the team color not listed will attend virtually that day. For example, September 8 is a "White" day. Students on the White team will attend in-person while students on the Blue team will attend virtually. Students enrolled 5 days in-person or on a fixed 2- or 3-day schedule are not placed on a Blue or White team and should plan to attend in-person on their respective days.
(Note: To simply view the Hybrid Schedule alone on the school calendar, make sure only the "Hybrid Schedule" box is checked under the calendar grid.)
