St. Rita Important Updates

Welcome to the St. Rita School Website! 




Gracious and merciful God of all creation,
You have loved us since before we were born.
From our mothers’ wombs to our eternal place in heaven
you have given us the gifts to live and grow in safety.
We come to you now asking for the grace and strength
to follow your plan and to form a safe,
caring, inclusive community here at St. Rita.
May our faith in you and your plan lead us to

know and feel your presence among us.

We ask this in name of Jesus, your Son,

who lived to show us your way.

                                                      Visitors to the School
The doors of St. Rita are open to our parent community.  All visitors to the school must report to the Office, however.  If you are dropping off or picking up your child in the morning or at the end of the day, we ask that you do so from the boundaries of the school.  Please remember - you are a stranger to the rest of the students at St. Rita School.   Thank you for your cooperation in helping keep our students safe!
