Greetings Yellow Jacket Community-
We are planning an incredible year ahead. It will be the first for many schools around the globe to actually teach students in-person and virtually simultaneously. We thank you for your partnership and patience as we walk the most historic journey together.
St. Anthony Catholic High School will take the following actions in an effort to emphasize our highest priority:
The following is an FAQ and some information to help answer various questions as we start the school year with many new students and returning students:
- How do I access my UIW student email for the FIRST TIME and access Microsoft TEAMS?
- Go to https://my.uiw.edu/current-students/index.html (uiw.edu) and on the right top, make sure you are on For: Current Students.
- Go to the top left to cardinal apps and find outlook mail. You will need to log in using the username and password given at the time you picked up your computer.
- This will open your student email and there you will find those invitations for Microsoft teams.
Another way to access the student's email is to go to the window at the bottom left of the screen page on the computer.
- Click on the window and all the features on the computer are in alpha order.
- Find Microsoft outlook or outlook and click on this.
- Log in using your username and password and your email should open.
- Are there instructions to access RENWEB?
Attached are the instructions to access Renweb.

- Who do I contact if I know my child is going to be absent (in-person or virtually) or has a doctor's appointment? And how do I sign my child out for a doctor's appointment?
Contact for Student Absences: Mrs. Sharon Longoria, Dean of Student Affairs, 210-832-5634 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you need to sign out your child from school, call or email the front office either from your car or home and we will have them meet you outside the school on the porch. Front Office Receptionist: Mrs. Irma Jaramillo, 210-832-5603 or email@example.com

Colonel Diaz will send further instructions on how ROTC will be facilitated this year. We have been working with Colonel Diaz on the schedule after Labor Day when they will begin in-person classes.

Teachers will go over more specific information and answer questions on textbooks and school supplies during the first week of school.
- Athletics and Practice Times
Cross Country practice will start at 6:00 am and finish at 7:30. Those students who are virtual learning will leave campus at that time. The in-person students will then get ready for school. The locker room and showers will be available. Due to size and the amount of shower stalls, we will allow three female students in the girls’ locker room and eight males in the boys locker room at one time. Students will need to bring their own towels, soap and shampoo. They will not leave anything in the locker room.
Volleyball practice will start at 6:00 am and finish at 7:40 in The Hive. Those students who are virtual learning will leave campus at that time. The in-person students will then get ready for school. The locker room and showers will be available. Due to size and the amount of shower stalls, we will allow three female students in the girls’ locker room at one time. Students will need to bring their own towels, soap and shampoo. They will not leave anything in the locker room.
Football practice will start at 4 pm immediately after school. After school football players will report to The Hive and sit socially distanced, waiting on using the locker room. They will be released eight at a time into the locker room to change into their practice attire. Once done changing, they will go to the field and place their backpacks and bags at the field. Once practice is over at 6:10, they will be released to go home. The locker room will not be available for players after practice. During the month of August, Friday practice will be from 4:00 – 5:00 pm. As it is August in Texas, we will have water jugs at practice for players to fill their water bottles. We will not use school water bottles or the water cow for practices.
- What should I do if I have technical difficulties on the first day of school?
Send Mrs. Debbie Quinones, Academic Dean an email and we will do our best to resolve issues as they arise. firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope this provides information that will assist us in navigating the first day of school. We have been in steadfast prayer for the 're-opening' of our school and we are filled with hope for the year ahead. May God bless our entire school community with an abundance of protection, peace and goodness.
