Mr. O’s Weekly News

February 5, 2022

Hello Falcon Families!

COVID Corner:

  • Current Case Rates
    • Local: 1,005 (v. 1,984 last week)
    • County: 1,391 (v. 2,329 last week) 
    • State: 949 (v. 1,582 last week)
  • ODH February 26 Update
    • The update was more of a convenience allowance than it was a recommendation or guidance update.
    • ODH is allowing schools to discontinue “universal” contact tracing due to the increased number of Omicron cases and the amount of time it takes school staff to track all of these cases.
    • ODH still recommends schools follow ODH’s previous Mask-to-Stay/Test-to-Play Guidelines.  These are the same guidelines we have been following for most of this school year. Students who are exposed to COVID-19 in the school are allowed to stay in school if they mask for 10 days.

Re-Enrollment for current students is now open.  You should have received an email from Mrs. Thompson this week.  If you did not, please email Mrs. Thompson.

Archdiocesan Scholarships

  • The Catholic Education Foundation (CEF) is excited to offer a limited number of Welcome Scholarships to Pre-School or Kindergarten students who are the first of their family to attend a Catholic school.
  • The CEF’s Needs-Based Scholarship application window closes tomorrow February 6th.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

  • Please only register for a conference, if a teacher requests a conference with you or you have a specific concern/need.  You are always welcome to contact teachers for general updates, however, we prefer to reserve these two days of conferences for specific needs.
  • Registration information will be sent at the end of this coming week.
  • Thursday 2/17 (In-Person): 3:00pm-4:30pm and 5:30pm-7:00pm
  • Friday 2/18 (Virtual): 8:30am-11:30am 

Out of Uniform Day (Friday February 11) will be Orange & Black Day.

Catholic Schools Week Sequel (Friday, February 25) will include All-School Bingo and dress as anything that begins with the first letter of your name or last name: (ex. Michael = macaroni, or Bella = ballerina, or David = dinosaur, Plummer = peacock)


Ohio EdChoice 2022-2023 School Year: 

  • Traditional EdChoice: the Designated/Failing School List for the 2022-2023 school year includes Dayton Public, Trotwood, and Northridge.  Students living in those public school districts will receive free tuition at St. Christopher if they apply for the EdChoice Scholarship.  Please email Mrs. Bradley in our office for more details.  Vandalia Butler, Northmont, and Tipp City are not on the list.
  • Expansion EdChoice: the 2022-2023 income eligibility guidelines have been updated as well. 
  • More EdChoice information can be found on the Ohio EdChoice website.

Archdiocesan Junior High Retreat: the Archdiocese of Cincinnati is hosting a retreat called Into The Deep for grades 6-8 on February 18-19.


  • Please help us recruit for all grades, but especially grades K-2.
  • Northridge Public School District is once again on the failing schools list this year and Northridge students will receive full/free tuition.  If you have friends living in the Northridge School District, please reach out to them.

St. Christopher, pray for us!

God Bless & Go Falcons!
