Dear St. Andrew Parents,

I hope you all had a great week! Thank you for your help with making Terra Nova testing run as smoothly as possible. Any student that missed a test will make it up next week. Make-ups will take place Monday-Wednesday.

Please check out the school calendar below for next school year. OCE does need to approve the calendar. However, we do not expect any major changes. Any future changes would be shared with you.

Many of our staff members have now begun to receive their vaccinations. Fortunately, it does not look like we will need to cancel school at all as they seem to be spread out, but we have had a little more need for substitute teachers and will as they move forward. Thank you for your patience and support with this.

In recognition that we are in Lent and approaching Easter, our 3rd – 8th grade students will have adoration and confession opportunities on either Monday or Wednesday of next week. This will take place in the gym, and there will be a clear divider between the Priest and the students as they participate in confession. If this is a concern to you, please contact your child’s religion teacher, and your child can participate in adoration only.

Thanks again for all of your support, and have a great weekend!
