Connecting with our families and keeping them informed are vitally important. We will share updates as we have them on this page, as well as MyCommunity. Please know that the safety and well-being of your child, and our entire community, is our top priority, and we continue to take steps to prepare for various scenarios and contingency strategies.

    The well-being of students and employees remains our top priority. St. Thomas plans to reopen on Monday, August 17, 2020, if Miami-Dade County successfully transitions to Phase 2.

    Many of our families are experiencing anxiety, worries, and economic uncertainty about this growing global pandemic. St. Thomas invites you to help those in need in our community by donating to our We Care Fund
  • WHAT IS THE ROLE OF THE PARENTS ASSOCIATION DURING THIS TIME?

    The St. Thomas Parents Association, under the wise and loving leadership of Roberta Meyeringh, Director of Parent Relations, remains committed to also keeping its traditions alive, serving our parents and ensuring that everyone feels connected. The rescheduling of the St. Thomas Derby Auction and Gala is under discussion. The Parent generated Instagram @stparents as well as MyCommunity are good resources for families. In addition, Mrs. Meyeringh or any member of the PA Board are available if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about PA-related activities. 
     
  • WHAT SHOULD PARENTS KNOW ABOUT ELECTIVE FAMILY TRAVEL?

    We are also following CDC guidelines with respect to travel and we expect our families to do the same. Our families should avoid travel to CDC Warning Level 3 or Alert Level 2 locations, which can be viewed here.

    If you or someone in your family travels to those locations, you must report that information to us by emailing betterhealth@stepsmia.org. You must also follow the CDC recommendation of a 14-day self -quarantine after returning from a Warning 3 country. Our policy further requires that all people — including students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and visitors who have recently traveled to a country that is listed as Warning Level 3 or Alert Level 2, provide proof that they were in the United States and symptom-free for 14 days before coming to campus. Proof would be a letter from a physician, much like we require of our students, after an extended absence from school.
