Return-To-School Preparedness Plan

St Jude of the Lake Catholic School remains committed to keep all our students, faculty, staff and families safe while offering a full-time, in-person educational experience of excellence rooted in our Catholic faith.  We have designed a comprehensive plan that is flexible enough to be responsive to the ever-changing impact of COVID-19 on our local community.

Our theme for the upcoming year is, “Keep Our Penguin Power Shining Bright!” As you discuss these guidelines with your children, remember that your encouragement and optimism will help set the tone for the upcoming school year. Please continue to check this webpage for further updates on our Return-To-School plan.
