Updated Back-to-School Information 7-26-2020
Dear Sacred Heart School Families,

The year 2020 has certainly presented all of us with a unique journey!  At Sacred Heart School, we believe that we are better together because we are a family; indeed, we are many parts of one Body of Christ.  We believe that we grow in our relationship with God by learning about God’s creation:  the world, the people in it, and ourselves.  We are always learning, and we believe that we learn better together.  

To that end, our plan is to begin the 2020-21 school year on Monday, August 24th with on-site instruction five days a week.  We are excited to have your children back in school and hope they are excited to return as well.  Please understand that we are making the best decisions we can for all involved during a time when information is constantly changing, and we  appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.  We know that not everyone will be happy or agree with all of our decisions.  Our #1 priority is keeping our students and staff safe and healthy, while providing learning in the best situation for our families and students. Thank you for your continued prayers and support!

We are waiting on additional guidance from the Iowa Department of Education, Iowa Department of Public Health, and the Diocese on protocols for students or staff who become ill at school or if we receive a report of a positive test, and how Public Health will handle contact tracing for quarantines. That information is expected to be put out in early August, so we should be able to share it soon.

May God bless us with a safe and productive school year~Mrs. Eldridge
