Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,
Thank you all for attending our first ever virtual Back to School Night. If you were unable to attend, please reach out to your child’s teacher for specific classroom information.
We are excited to welcome students in grades 1 – 6 back for in-person instruction on Wednesday. Please make sure that you and your child arrive on campus with a facial covering. This is mandatory at drop off and dismissal. Watch the return to in-person instruction video here. The gate across the quad as well as the front gate are open at 7:30 am. The gate on the quad will close at 7:50 am. It is imperative that all families realize the importance of keeping children home if they are ill. Parents are responsible for health screening their children before they arrive at school, which is essential to ensure our school stays open and safe for children, teachers, and staff. Click here for a daily health screening you can do from your smartphone. Thank you for your partnership and commitment!
Due to the mandates of opening under the waiver, our staff must undergo regular COVID-19 testing. With this extra mandate, we have to institute noon dismissal every Friday starting on Friday, September 25th to give our staff time to test. This is for grades TK – 6. Our preschool will still dismiss at 2:50 pm on Fridays.
We have kicked off our Annual Fund for this current school year with hope! As the prophet Isaiah states, “They that hope in the Lord will renew their strength, they will soar on eagles’ wings; they will run and not grow weary, walk and not grow faint.” (Isaiah 40:31). It is my hope and prayer that all of our families will support the Annual Fund this year. Click here to make your donation.

Prayer to St. Raphael
Glorious Archangel St. Raphael, great prince of the heavenly court, you are illustrious for your gifts of wisdom and grace. You are a guide of those who journey by land or sea or air, consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of sinners. I beg you, assist me in all my needs and in all the sufferings of this life, as once you helped the young Tobias on his travels. Because you are the “medicine of God” I humbly pray you to heal the many infirmities of my soul and the ills that afflict my body. I especially ask of you the favor (here mention your special intention), and the great grace of purity to prepare me to be the temple of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
