Our school will be closed beginning Tuesday, March 17, in light of the executive order issued by Gov. Tim Walz. As of now, we will be closed through our planned Spring Break, April 3.
St. Peter Claver School will be open Monday, March 16, for regular classes. This day will help families and staff better prepare. St. Paul Public Schools will be closed, and no busing will be available.
Our Ascension Catholic Academy leadership has been meeting throughout the weekend. We are well aware that this closing brings significant challenges in food availability and child care. Please help us by completing this survey, ACA Family Needs Survey, by midnight Sunday, March 15.
We are working on establishing a St. Peter Claver, St. John Paul II and Ascension Helpline to connect families with needed resources. We also are preparing to minimally provide childcare for health professionals, first responders and other emergency workers. We will provide more information on both of these when we receive your replies to our survey.
We appreciate your trust, support and cooperation during this time of increased anxiety. We continue to place our trust in our loving God to give us strength. We are confident that together, with God’s help and guidance, we will make it through this time of fear and uncertainty. We pray for you and ask you to keep us in your prayers.
