Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update

From the Office of Principal:

Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;

We are quickly coming to the ending of our 21-22 school year.  It has been a busy year and one with many wonderful activities. We cannot be more thankful for all the support and help that many have shown.  Our students are thriving!  We have seen such growth in them as a community connected to God, to each other, and their teachers. We hope that they have the Holy Spirit enlightening them in an ever deeper way as they move forward.

To keep our school financially sustainable, we hold a series of fundraising activities throughout the year. You have all made the fundraising events of 21-22 super successful. There are two more that will take place for our current fiscal year. We appreciate all that you have contributed during our current school year and ask you to push just a little bit more to finish out the school year. We need to sell our 650 Pot-O-Gold tickets and need your help to do so. You might even purchase one for yourself and take a chance on winning the $20,000. We also have our golf tournament in June that is more fun than simply being a funding source for the school. This is quite the social event too, both rain or shine!  Please join in and let’s keep going strong for these final activities.


Kim Doyle, Principal

Retirements at SWS

1. Mike Tschimperle will be retiring from teaching after being at St. Wenceslaus for the past 37 years. We are so grateful for the dedication and service Mike has given to our school.

Covid Update
The Covid-19 virus still exists and still affects people within our school.  We continue to monitor but all school life has returned to “normal” at this time.
Here are the guidelines:

1. Keep your child home if they are ill.  Same rules apply as aways with 24 hours (24 hour rule) -for any fever, diarrhea, vomit and we also hope you test for covid.

As educators we see that coughs and runny noses are not handled well by some children so keep those children home until better. Kids are extremely germy with mucus issues. Children who cannot use a tissue and sanitize appropriately or who do not cover a cough should not be in school.

2. If a child or staff member test positive, then they do need to quarantine for 5 days and can return to school on day 6. (day zero being the day of the test if no symptoms or if there are symptoms then day zero is the day symptoms start) Day 6 with a mask until day 10 – or quarantine through day 10. Day 11 all is good if symptoms are gone or significantly better. This is the policy until further notice. For preschool, we ask for kids to remain out for the full 10 days.

3. Masks are optional. Some children and staff members continue to wear masks and that is OK. 

Some children come to school in a mask but wear it on their neck or chin – or only cover their mouth and keep their nose out. If this is your child, you might consider getting rid of the mask. It actually is more distracting and germy than helpful to your child. Having the child touch the mask constantly spreads their germs to others and works against your intention to protect them.
