Does Guardian Angels offer support for students with special needs?
We have a very high level of support available to meet the needs of all learners, regardless of need. We are able to properly assist students who need intervention, and also significantly challenge students who have demonstrated proper ability. Much of this is achieved during our Halo Bell program which builds time into each student’s weekly schedule to allow them to have their needs met. A school psychologist, 3 intervention specialists, speech/language therapist, and gifted/enrichment director along with a dedicated staff trained in differentiated education all combine to help every student achieve.
What specialty classes / extracurricular activities does Guardian Angels offer (gym, art, language, sports etc.)?
Beginning in kindergarten, all students attend Physical Education, Music/Band/Chorus, Spanish, Halo Bell (gifted & enrichment program), and Art. In addition to this, many extracurricular activities are available including sports, robotics & engineering club, art enrichment, chess club, and much more! Our PTA actively seeks opportunities based on student interest to enhance our GA experience.
What are Guardian Angels ’s safety policies?
Many policies and procedures have been implemented to keep our students safe- the top priority at Guardian Angels. All entrances into the school are locked throughout the day. Every person wanting access to the building must go through the main school entrance- being granted permission through two locked access points. Cameras are installed at each entrance which are monitored by the school principal and administrative assistant. All school personnel have gone through ALICE training, and many emergency situations are practiced on an annual basis. Safety will always be our top priority.
What extra safety measures is Guardian Angels taking during the COVID-19 pandemic?
We have implemented many measures to protect students and staff from the COVID-19 pandemic. Every person on campus must wear a mask. Classroom design has been modified to space student desks farther apart. Plexiglass is used in classrooms where students sit at tables. The parish and school has a new air-filtration system designed to prevent unsafe particles from entering our air pathways. We constantly reinforce the need to wear masks, stay socially distanced, and to wash hands properly/often.
