Welcome to St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School

St. Vincent de Paul Families, Staff and Community,

     I am excited to announce that the Peoria Catholic Diocese and the Office of Catholic Schools have given us the go ahead to plan for returning to St.Vincent de Paul School, IN PERSON  in  August,  for the start of our 2020-21 school year!  We have already begun to work on outlining a lengthy plan for returning to SVdP in a safe environment for our students and staff.    Areas that we will be addressing for planning  are : Health and Safety, Physical Infrastructure, Scheduling and Staff; Food Service and Extended Care.  I have a team of teachers,  several parent/parishioners with experience in the healthcare,  school, and community,  as well as Father Willard and Father Taylor, to work through our "Return to School Plan".   This plan will be submitted and approved by the Diocese and the Office of Catholic Schools in July in order to reopen here in August.   During the first week of August we will reconvene to discuss implementation of the plan with any recent updates from the diocese, the state, healthcare community, CDC, local health departments or other agencies.  Once the final plan is approved, then we will be able to share it with the SVdP community,  staff, and school families for the reopening of the school for the 2020-21 academic year.  

I hope this good news has help to relieve some stress about the unknown.  These last few months have certainly shown us, as a faith community, that we may not know what the future holds, but what we do know is that it rests in Jesus Christ.  We are slowly entering back into our church for Masses and now we are planning for school, at St. Vincent de Paul in August!  For that we are truly Blessed!

I will continue to keep all of you informed of any updates that we receive that will help you plan for returning to school in August. I am certain that face masks and hand sanitizer will be part of our plan, so they are now added to the school supply list.  As the summer progresses, and you are out and about this summer, making purchases for those items will be to your advantage.  We are also planning on purchasing  those items here at school.  

Our usual  our end of June email about registration updates and etc., will be sent out in the next couple of weeks.  Be looking for that in your emails, and then any updates throughout the summer will be shared with all of our families.    

God Bless, 

Mrs. Patsy Santen, Principal
