Flu and Cold Viruses

With the flu season hitting our area hard now through spring, the St. Angela Merici Parish School community is asked to follow basic guidelines in preventing the spread of flu and cold viruses.


Prevention is the key, realizing that people can be infectious before they show signs of any symptoms. Sanitized cleaning and frequent hand-washing is vital, along with recognizing symptoms. Please keep your child home from school for at least 24 hours after their fever is gone. 

Volleyball Sign-Ups

If your son plans on participating in Boys Volleyball, starting March 5th, follow these instructions to be eligible to play:


1. Click HERE to register ONLY if your son did NOT play a Fall or Winter sport.
