Dear Parents,
     Please be proactive and practice social distancing. This is the reason that schools are taking these very important precautionary measures. This means it is not a time for play dates, gatherings, or visits to public places. Please monitor their progress daily and keep checking the class web page and all online communications from school through emails and OptionC text messages. I will be using Google Applications such as Google Classroom, Google Slides, and Google Forms.

I strongly recommend that students download the Google Classroom app on their electronic devices at home.


We here at St. Athanasius Catholic Academy, request that all our students and their families put special time aside, at 9 am, 3 pm, and 7 pm to start a special prayer circle for our school community and for the rest of the world.

Please say a special prayer for all those working in hospitals, and our first responders who are on the front lines to ensure the welfare of all those affected. 

Below is the prayer created from our beloved Pope Francis to Mary during the Corona Virus Pandemic, I ask that we all pray together…
