  • The "Traffic Circle" drive through lanes on Sarah Street are specifically for students who do not need assistance getting into school.  
  • Cars in the "Traffic Circle" are to drop off students and then continue to move through the lane and onto the street.  
  • PARKING IS NOT ALLOWED in the "Traffic Circle".  
  • Parents of Preschool and K4 children are to park in the designated parking stalls either along the street or adjacent to church and walk their child into school.
  • If you have a relative or friend bringing your child to school please inform them of these instructions.  
Be sure to contact the office via phone or email by 8:00am if your child will not be at school. We also appreciate being aware of any upcoming appointments. If possible, please notify the office before 2:45pm if there are changes to your child's normal dismissal routine (bus, after school care, etc).
St. Ignatius Catholic School is looking for responsible and reliable individuals to assist in the Before/After School Care program. This position will include, but is not limited to, after school supervision of St. Ignatius Catholic School students up to 15 hours per week. Duties include maintaining a safe and enjoyable environment for the children, assisting with homework if needed, and some light cleaning. All Before/After School Care Assistants are required to be over 18 years of age, VIRTUS trained and pass a background check. Please send a resume or inquires to Karen Hanagan, B/A Director at [email protected]
Please be aware that there are parents of St. Ignatius Catholic School students who do not want their child's picture posted on any form of social media. St. Ignatius Catholic School has a number of families who do not consent to the use of their child's picture for any kind of publication. We ask that you respect this request and refrain from posting pictures of students without first asking their parent's permission.
Parents, our Home & School Association invites you to join them for their monthly meeting. Come and see how the St. Ignatius Home & School is involved in school events and promotes school activities. The first meeting will be held on Monday, September 6 (Labor Day) at 6:30pm in the school library. Please enter Door #7 on the playground. All are welcome and we hope to see you there!
We love to share marriages, births, graduations, and retirements of our alumni, family, and friends!  We want to celebrate these blessings and milestones with you! If you would like to have your life event shared, please contact Emily Getchius, Assistant Director of Development, at [email protected] or call (920) 766-0186 option 4.


Thank you and have a great afternoon!
