A Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

We had an incident in the North Gym after school yesterday just before 5:00 pm.  Three young men/older teens walked in the front door, down the steps and through the boys' locker room - then out immediately. At that time of day, those doors were unlocked as we prepared for a basketball game. There were many adults, coaches and parents, in the building at that time. While we believe that our athletes and students were not in danger, we will review our practices regarding that front door. We do have these young men on video surveillance, and we will share that with the St. Cloud police.  They were in the building less than five minutes; they did not touch anything, nor did they speak to anyone. It appeared that they were just trying to see what was going on.  Please be assured that the safety of our students is our most important responsibility and we take it very seriously.

2. Our school nurse, Kati Bauerly, has reported that we have a couple of confirmed cases of the influenza here at Cathedral.  If your student is coughing, running a fever, or has serious congestion, please keep them home. That's the best way for young people to recover and for the spread of the flu to stop.

3. Parent Council invites you to join them next Tuesday in the Conference Room at 11:30 am.  Nina Steil, Advancement Associate/Alumni & Events, will be speaking to us about her new position at CHS and bring us up-to-date on this year's Celebrations of Seasons.  If you would like to be more involved with Celebrations of Seasons, this would be a great place to start!

4. Please do not bring or send restaurant food to your child at lunchtime. Our food service provides many options of good, healthy food, but we can't compete with a delivered pizza!  We do allow students to bring in treats for a friend's birthday celebration.
