As of Jan. 23 St. Paul has 8 positive cases (2.55%) and 18 students quarantined due to household exposures. We are currently still following a 10 day quarantine for all COVID positive students and close contacts outside of school.
The transmission rates of our school, the 63026 zip code, and St. Louis County has all decreased. The numbers are still 3 – 4 times as high as they were only 1 month ago, but they are starting to decrease. Jefferson county transmission rates continue to increase. There has not been a release of numbers for the area school districts this week.
The positivity rate of the St. Paul School Community will need to stay at 2% or lower for 10 days to allow masking at the discretion of the parents. As of today, the soonest our positivity rate will be at 2% is Jan. 26 and our first day of moving to Level Green (masking at parental discretion) is Monday, Feb. 7. I will communicate when we are at 2% and we will move to optional masking 10 days from that date assuming our positivity rate does not increase past 2%.
100th Birthday of St. Paul School!
We have a big day scheduled for the start of our celebration of St. Paul’s 100th Birthday celebration. We will have our first all school Mass at 9:00 on Tuesday, Jan. 25. Students can dress out in blue and gold. We have some special treats in store for the celebration!
St. Paul School Families are welcome to visit our school on Jan. 30 from 11:00 – 1:00 PM. If you have any friends or neighbors interested in touring our school, please invite them to our Open House. New families can pre-register on the home page of our school website.
Student Leadership Council Event
The Student Leadership Council will be selling popsicles each day during lunch. You can pay in advance or bring money the day your child will be purchasing the popsicles.
Parents are welcome in the building when invited by a teacher. Any parent that enters the building will need to have completed Prevent and Protect. (Prevent and Protect Instructions) and will be required to wear masks. Parents will use the QR Code on the front entrance to sign in and out of the building.
Ms. Jami Russo is now available to start meeting with students in small groups or individually. If you would like to have your child meet with our counselor, please complete these forms.
You can access the St. Paul Google Calendar for all the up-to-date school events.
May God bless you and your family,
Mrs. Debbie McCaslin
