A Message from the Principal

Last week we celebrated Catholic Schools Week with Mass, Open House for Existing Families, Teacher Appreciation Day, and Student Appreciation Day. Thank you to all that helped with the various activities and who volunteered their time to make these events great.  A special thank you to members of the PTA Hospitality Committee and our Parent Volunteers.  As always, it takes many to make events at Saint Leo’s a success! 

Earlier this week, on Groundhog Day, Punxsutawney Phil informed us that he thinks we will have six more weeks of winter. While we hope that he is mistaken, it is important that everyone continue to be prepared in case we have a delayed opening or school closing due to inclement weather.

In the event of a delayed opening, early release, or school closing due to inclement weather or emergency, the following procedures will be followed: 

  • Our school website will include notification of delayed opening, early dismissal and/or emergency closing.
  • A detailed Instant Alert will be sent to parents’ emergency numbers.  Please keep Honeywell contact information updated.

Saint Leo the Great School has students that reside in multiple public school districts. The public school districts determine whether or not buses will run during inclement weather. Saint Leo’s Administration must consider multiple school district busing schedules when determining whether to have a delayed opening, early release or school closing.

In certain cases of inclement weather, Saint Leo’s will run a delayed opening schedule. On delayed openings, students must not be dropped off at school earlier than the stated time. In the event that a district’s schedule (and therefore, its transportation) does not coincide with Saint Leo’s schedule, it is the responsibility of the parents to make the necessary, realistic efforts for him/her to attend school.

Please remember that the safety of all is our first priority when making these decisions. Thank you in advance for your patience and flexibility.

Saint Leo's Introduces Microsoft Tablets to Middle School Students
Saint Leo the Great begins the year as the first school in the Diocese of Trenton to offer Microsoft Surface tablets to its Middle School students. Over the past seven months, teachers received training on how best to leverage the power of the Surface tablet in the classroom as they prepare students to succeed in an increasingly technological world. Representatives from Microsoft were on hand to introduce the students to their new tablets and will provide ongoing support throughout the year.
