Picture Day for all students will be on Wednesday, September 2nd. All students (including seniors) will get their picture taken free of charge. These are the pictures which will be used for the yearbook.
Again, everyone will have their picture taken. Students will receive a picture day order form during flex (except seniors). If you wish to purchase pictures, please complete the form and payment, and bring it back on picture day. If you are not planning to buy pictures, all students will still have a free photo taken for the yearbook.
Seniors: If you have had your picture taken with Executive Studios (over the summer or at their studio), you do not have to have your picture taken. If Executive Studios has not taken your photo, even if you have had your senior photo taken by another photographer or company, you must get a yearbook photo on picture day. This photo will be taken free of charge on September 2nd. If you are a senior, September 2nd is your only chance to have a free picture taken.
Remote Students: Remote seniors will have their yearbook pictures taken on September 2nd at 10:40 am in the ITC. Remote freshmen, sophomores and juniors will have their pictures taken on Picture Retake Day in October.
The schedule is as follows:
- Dress, romper/jumpsuit, or skirt of appropriate length (same expectations as the school skirt) or dress pants
- You are permitted to wear your school skirt or pants as your picture will only be taken from waist up
- No stretch pants, leggings or tight pants or jeans of any kind
- For your top, make sure shoulders are covered and is not low cut
- Dress pants or school uniform shorts
- Collared shirt with tie (jackets are optional)
Please contact Assistant Principal, Mr. Zlatic (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions about dress requirements for pictures.
All students, faculty, and staff are required to have a face covering.
We want to highlight a few key details about our remote learning model for this year, especially as it differs from the model we used last year when schools closed in March:
In addition, please review the following expectations for student conduct during Zoom sessions:
If you have any questions about remote learning this year, please contact Julie Vehorn, Director of Academics, at email@example.com or 513-641-1300.
All college representative visits will be held virtually this year. Students can sign up on Naviance to participate in the “visits”. The representatives from the colleges will host a Zoom with interested students. Students on campus will participate during Flex in Room 24 (adhering to room capacity limits) and remote students can join the Zoom session from home. Please contact Ms. Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information on how to sign up for these sessions.

As we plan for your student’s senior year, we are excited to offer 2 more opportunities for students to attend a Kairos Retreat. Because of attendance limitations and considerations for families who do not want their student to attend an overnight retreat, a senior retreat is not required for graduation this year. Additionally, Kairos retreat registration will be on a first come, first served basis. If demand exceeds available spots we will investigate further options to accommodate everyone. Also, unlike past years, fall athletes are eligible to attend the August retreat due to the limited number of Kairos spots. We offer three dates and registration will be done on a first come, first served basis. Please review the following dates and choose a date that works best with your schedule.
Remaining Kairos Dates for 2020-2021 School Year: November 4-6, 2020; March 2-5, 2021.
Senior Service Experience. To provide a more concise understanding of the senior service experience, click here for the “2020-2021 Senior Service Packet.” This document provides the necessary information to understand the requirements and expectations. First, watch the YouTube video that walk you through many details, from ideas to registration. Then, consult the “frequently asked questions” sheet to provide you quick answers to typical questions. There is also a document about different places to serve in Cincinnati, which are divided into themes. Service is a element of our Franciscan school, where it is our motto to help young men and women grow “in holiness and learning” rooted in Jesus Christ.
An important part of our safety plan is ensuring that students who are sick are not permitted to come to school. If you are sick, please stay home. Check the temperature of students before leaving home. Students with a temperature of 100.4 degrees of higher should stay at home.
Primary symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough, shortness of breath and/or loss of taste/smell. If you have have multiple symptoms or symptoms persist, please consult your family health provider.
Immunization Requirement for Senior Year. Senior students, if you have not received your meningococcal vaccine yet, please make an appointment with your physician. These can also be given at Kroger’s or Walgreens’ clinics. Proof of this vaccine or an updated immunization record should be turned in to the nurse’s office by the end of September. Thank you! If you have any questions, please contact our school nurse, Karin Herold, via email or leave a voice message 513-641-1300, ext 1140.
