SCHOOL BELTS
We keep a supply of belts on hand in case your child forgets to put one on. They can come
down and borrow one from the office. Our belts have “St. Patrick Catholic School” written on
them in sharpie. Please check with your child to see if they have one to return. We will also
accept any belts you would like to donate to the school.

COVID UPDATE
Saint Patrick Catholic School continues being mask optional but recommended. If you wish to
change your mask preference email Micaela Shea and your child’s teacher.
We are currently entering our fifteenth week with < 1% positive COVID 19 cases.
As of right now, The Diocese of Raleigh and Saint Patrick Catholic School are hopeful to open
the 2022-2023 school year with more normalcy then the past 6 months. Students will return to
eating lunch in the lunchroom, classes will be able to mix during recess and middle schoolers
will return to switching classes. We will closely monitor COVID 19 over the summer and share
the exact opening plan with families in August.

AFTERCARE
We are now taking drop-ins for aftercare. If you need your child to stay after school on a drop in basis, please email Amanda Gonzalez at [email protected]

UNIFORM POLICY CHANGES
There are some uniform policy changes that will occur over the remainder of the school year.
Sneakers: Students should wear sneakers to school daily, but they do not have to be solid black.
Moving forward sneakers should be “mostly black”. That means the sole may be white (or a
color other than white) and the sides may have an additional color. For example, the sneaker
may have a white Nike Swoosh, New Balance N, Adidas stripes, etc….on the sides of the
sneaker.
Leggings: students may wear plain, solid black leggings under their school uniform jumper,
skirt, or skort in place of tights.
Hair bows, headbands, and barrettes: Students may wear any color hair accessory to school.

VOLUNTEERING AT ST. PATRICK CATHOLIC SCHOOL REQUIREMENTS
We will be allowing limited volunteers in the school this year. If you want to volunteer at the
school, you must complete the volunteer application which includes attending a Safe
Environment Training (SET)class. There are some online training courses each month. Please

Safe Environment Training Calendar
In addition to attending the SET training, all volunteers need to complete an application with
the Diocese of Raleigh. You can turn your completed application into the front office.
