It was so wonderful to see our first and second graders this morning. One of them told me that today was the best day of her life! The Pasadena Health Department will be visiting us soon to check on how we are doing and make certain that we are complying with our waiver. I appreciate their help and support. I want to do everything possible to have our students back on campus safely.
We are working so hard to get our students back on campus and when we hear about events taking place with our students and families that do not follow the social distancing mask wearing protocol, it is a bit disheartening to us. Please follow all of the requirements so that COVID numbers can go down and we can get all of our students back on campus safely. In this case it truly does take a village, or a city. One person cannot do this alone. We all need to be a part of the solution.
Please reserve the afternoon/evening of December 17 for a special treat sponsored by your wonderful teachers and staff. We are planning a safe Polar Express for our students and we want to see all of them. More information is in the attachment in this newsletter.
Have a wonderful week,
Congratulations to Principal Jennifer Ramirez and our school’s administration for getting our COVID-19 waiver request approved. This was no small achievement. As of today, St. Philip is the only Catholic school in Pasadena to have been granted a waiver, and that is a testament to the incredibly hard work of Jennifer and the school administration.
The TK-2 waiver is available for your review here on our school website. It is extremely detailed, and we must adhere to the procedures and protocols it prescribes, or risk being shut down. This is no simple task, and we will all need to support Jennifer, the teachers and aides, and the administration in their efforts to ensure compliance.
Our shared goal is to open our campus up to every student who wishes to return to the classroom. This waiver is a significant step in that direction, and I am profoundly grateful to Jennifer and her team for leading this effort and the school board committees that helped.
We are happy to announce our Prospective Parent Q&A schedule is now available and we are taking reservations!

We look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our wonderful community!
Slowly but surely (and safely!) we are brining out students back on campus. Following all guidelines set by the Pasadena Health Department, we have our all of our TK and Kindergartners back on campus. Parents who still wish to hace their children on remote learning have the option to do so.
On Monday, 11/16, our 1st and 2nd graders will be back on campus!
And as the Pasadena Department of Health says it is safe to do so, we will be bringing more of our students back.
We are proud of our community efforts to do this safely. We have all students socially distanced. We have upgraded our air filtering systems as well as our cleaning practices.
We continue to pray for the health and well being of all our families, students, faculty and staff, and community.
