Unfortunately, St. Joseph School has cancelled the 8th grade sponsored "Breakfast with Santa" due to Covid restrictions. (This event takes place on our school campus) This decision was made a month ago when our Covid numbers were high. We realize this is a fun event for our students as well as a time to build community and we sincerely regret that we cannot gather in December to celebrate. Covid restrictions are changing daily. We'll continue to monitor the situation and hopefully soon we can once again gather together. Please know that future school events are being planned. We thank you in advance for your continued support and cooperation!

The eighth graders will once again organize and participate as a class to provide Christmas shopping for all of our students in December at the SJS Christmas Shop. (formally known as the Santa Shop) More details to follow!

Since we cannot sponsor the Breakfast With Santa this year,
we have set up a gift card raffle in Givesmart.

If your children are a part of a quarantine due to COVID
please remember to contact ALL of their teachers.
There will be no virtual instruction for preschool.
There will be no virtual instruction for the special classes.
Virtual instruction will start on day two after talking
to Ms. Zeck for students in K-8.
This gives the teacher time to prepare.
