Dear Parents and Students,
By now all students should have their school ID. Your ID is important because it identifies you as a St. A. student and it also serves as a lunch card. You can place money on your card by visiting the Business Office. In addition, when you purchase lunch on your card you will automatically receive a 10% discount.
Thanks goes out to all the faculty who made the Senior Retreat a memorable experience for the Class of 2017. Without their time, effort, and dedication this wonderful experience would not have occurred.
We take the safety of our community seriously and have added a safety feature to our front entrance. Please enter the main building through the left glass door and push the button for the intercom to our reception desk. The building is officially closed at 4:00 pm unless your child is with a teacher conducting school business.
Being on time to school is very important. Please make sure that you are on campus with time to spare so your day starts off right. Remember, everyone must be in Chapel before 8am.
If your child is absent please let us know by calling Mrs. Susan Castillo at 210-832-5600 before 9am.
Below are a few reminders that will help us this week.
