Return to School and COVID-19 Mitigation Health Plan
The safety and well-being of our students and families is of utmost importance to us, as is providing the richest academic, spiritual, and social experience possible.
I would like to thank all parents and teachers for providing feedback on our initial return to school plan and helping us form the final plan. I would like to thank all who serve on our Task Force to Re-Open ST. MARK Catholic School. Your service continues to be much appreciated and invaluable.
In brief, our plan includes:
– Grades K-4: In-person instruction 4-days a week (Tues.-Fri.) with 6 ft. of social distancing (option to participate in class remotely by live-streaming via Zoom from home). Monday morning remote instruction for all. Monday afternoon, teacher and school-wide planning time.
– Grades 5-8: In-person instruction 2-days a week (Blue and Gold schedule) with 6 ft. of social distancing and students participating in class by live-streaming via Zoom from home on their remote days. Currently enrolled students receiving 4 or more hours of student support services per week will be in-school Tues-Fri.
All families have the option to choose remote/live-streaming via Zoom from home at any time during the school year.
Our new start date for grades K-8 is Monday, August 31. Each day that week will be a half-day (ending at 12:25pm) and all students, including students in grades K-4, will be on the Blue/Gold schedule that week to allow teachers to work with smaller groups of students to acclimate them to the new school year and new routines. We will provide more details to all registered families in the coming weeks.
Thank you for continuing to partner with us in the sacred trust of educating your children, and for your commitment to Catholic education.

OUR SCHOOL AT A GLANCE:
A 2015 Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, ST. MARK Catholic School boasts a current enrollment of nearly 400 students. Each student enjoys a friendly and welcoming school, small class sizes, and the ability to develop to his or her unique potential through strong relationships, a rigorous curriculum, and a school which exemplifies the love of Christ.
The ability to discuss and explore our faith allows for education of the whole child: spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally. Recognizing the dignity and the uniqueness of each child, we promote academic excellence through a faith-based education. By developing a Catholic foundation rooted in faith, knowledge and service, we send forth our students on their journey through life to share the light of Christ.
