Aug 27, 2021 | News and Updates

Welcome back to all of our students and families! We are so excited to start this new school year with you! Before the first day of school there are a few important updates you should know. To read our entire back to school newsletter please click on the following button!

St. Agnes Catholic School Entry Plan

Lunch and Snack

For the first 10 days of school students are asked to bring their own lunches and snack to school. (Please note that outside food from fast food restaurants should not be brought up to the school for students during the school day.)


Students will remain in their grade level cohorts this school year. 5th– 8th grade will be able to rotate to their classes during the school day. Hall monitoring will be in place to ensure that all students are abiding by school safety guidelines and policies and getting to their perspective classrooms safely.


It has been noted that Dennis uniforms is on back order for St. Agnes attire. We understand that this is a circumstance that is out of our or your control. With that said, students are asked to enter into the St. Agnes school building with their St. Agnes uniform or attire that closely matches the required uniform policy. Students will wear their gym uniforms on P.E. days. Pre K students are allowed to wear their gym uniforms throughout the duration of the school year.


St. Agnes School is partnering with the Child Food and Nutrition Program for students this year. PreK 3 thru 2nd Grade students will eat lunch in their classrooms with their teacher. The 3rd thru 8th grade students will travel to the cafeteria in staggered rotations to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all students. Tables will be spaced out and the school will follow CDC guidelines and AOB protocols. St. Agnes personnel will be present in the cafeteria to monitor student activity and safety

Drop off and Pick Up Procedures

Drop off and pick up for students will take place with cars lining up in the parking lot facing the school and allowing students to safely exit their vehicles and enter into the school building. PreK- 2nd grade will enter into the building through the second side door entrance of the school building and 3rd thru 8th will enter into the first set of side doors of the school building. There will be faculty and staff members that will assist you on the first week of school so that you get acclimated to the drop off and pick up procedures. 

Note: Since there are so many new students starting at St. Agnes School this year, we are asking that parents make a sign with their child’s/children’s name on it and make it visible in your dashboard so that during pick up we are able to recognize who you are picking up and get students to their perspective cars as quickly and safely as possible.

Drop Off Schedule

7:45am-7:50am- 3rd thru 8th Grade Drop Off

7:50am – 8:00am- PreK3- 2nd Grade Drop Off

Parents please adhere to the drop off schedule for a quicker and safe entrance into the school building. Temperature Checks or wellness survey will not be required prior to students entering the school building. We are asking that all parents remain vigilant, and encourage that a wellness check on your child/children is conducted at home prior to school arrival. Students who are attending Before Care will arrive at the school building at 6:45 am and will be directed by the before care workers to their designated area.

Pick up is at 3pm. Students who will attend extended care will be sent to the extended care room at dismissal.

Please note: Temperature and wellness checks will be completed in the Before and After Care program daily and prior to entry and exit.

Nurses Corner! 


This School Year Nurse Conaway will continue to educate our faculty, staff, students and families on proper techniques, and safety regulation guidelines. Nurse Conaway will be the point of contact for questions about safety and health protocols. St. Agnes school will maintain its quarantine room for this school year in response to any faculty, staff, or students who may exhibit Covid symptoms. St. Agnes School has elected to become a testing site. Therefore, tests can be run at the school for Covid this year. This will help the school properly identify illnesses and support our mission of safety for all. (Please see attached AOB guidelines).


          We are Excited to See You Soon!!!
