News & Announcements

We've made a slight change to the 2019-2020 academic calendar. The winter Long Weekend will now begin Friday, January 24, 2020 at noon, and run until Tuesday, January 28 at 6:00 p.m. Fall semester exams will run Tuesday, January 21 through Friday morning, January 24. All students will be in exams until 11:30 am on January 24. Please do not arrange early departures without first talking to Dean of Studies Gretchen Hurtt.

The most up-to-date version of the one-page school calendar PDF can always be found at https://www.standrews-de.org/parents/calendars/pdf.

Current parents, do you love talking about your child's experience at St. Andrew's? The Admission Office needs volunteers to contact the parents of accepted students throughout the month of March and offer to talk through their decisions to enroll. If you are willing to volunteer a few hours of your time, make calls to three to five families, and help more great students and parents choose SAS, please send us an email at admissions@standrews-de.org.

As we settle into the new year and the spring semester here at St. Andrew's, the Health Center would like to remind you of the following:
  • Whenever you have any changes in personal information such as your address, phone/cell number, employment, or email address, please let the School know as soon as possible, so that we may update our records. You can email updates to us at healthcenter@standrews-de.org, or to Diane Fagan at dfagan@standrews-de.org.
  • If your health or dental insurance information changes at any time during the school year, please be sure to send us an updated scanned copy of the front and back of your new insurance card(s). This also pertains to prescription cards.
  • Unfortunately, this time of year, we tend to see an increase in illnesses. If at any time, your child is sent home due to illness (or an injury), when the student returns to campus, he or she—along with you, the parent/guardian—must check in with the Health Center first, before returning to dorm and resuming School activities. In some cases, the student may require a letter from your healthcare provider authorizing his or her return to School.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Health Center at healthcenter@standrews-de.org or via phone at 302-285-4240.

Happy 2019! As we charge into the new year, we are confidently entering our exam period—but we need your help! We would like to offer you the opportunity to send your student(s) an Exam Basket to help them prepare for their mid-term exams.

All the proceeds will go to all-School events organized by the Class of 2019 (including prom!).

We have made two different kinds of exam baskets available to order for your child or grandchild: the Nutritious Basket and the Indulgent Basket. The Nutritious Basket will be filled with snacks on the healthier end of the spectrum, whereas the Indulgent Basket will satisfy all those study-session cravings.

The deadline to order a basket for your student(s) is Thursday, January 17. Visit The Saints Shop, our online marketplace, to order yours today!

Thank you so much for your support!

Love,

Noor El-Baradie '19, Carson McCoy '19, and the entire Class of 2019
