St. Jude of the Lake

E-Learning Resource Hub

Additional resources for families for both education and fun; updated throughout the school year. If St. Jude experiences a high volume of positive cases, we may have to temporarily go to distance learning model or quarantine to reset, give our community time to heal and the custodial staff time to sanitize the building.  We are not planning on this situation, but we are ready if it happens.
