PSAT and Dual Credit

PSAT Additional Test Date
A second PSAT exam date is being added for January 2020.  If your student is signed up for the PSAT on Oct. 14, and is a junior, they may defer taking the test until January. Please have them talk to Mrs. Toosley in the Student Success Center, to defer to the later date by Oct. 2.  There are currently 10 spots left for the October PSAT.
If your student is not yet signed up for the test, is a junior, and wishes to take the test in January, please be on the lookout for the sign up in October. We do not yet have the option to register students for the January exam.
The PSAT cost is $20, and taking it prepares students for college admission tests and encourages them to consider college as an option. By taking the PSAT, students also compete for national scholarships like the National Merit Scholarship and are placed on college mailing lists.
The October PSAT is Wed., October 14th  – 8am-12:pm.

All Sports Breakout Mtgs. – Aug. 9th – CANCELLED

Helias’ All Sports Meeting for Sunday, Aug. 9 has been cancelled in an effort to minimize the number of adults inside of Helias buildings (per recommendations from DESE). Each sport will be asked to hold a parent meeting during the first week of practice. Once we have established locations for those meetings, families will be notified. Thank you again for your patience as we prioritize the health and well-being of our Helias community.

For more information, please contact our Athletic/Activities Director, Tom Guinn by calling us at 635-6139 or email Mr. Guinn at TGuinn@heliascatholic.com.

Guidelines for Re-Opening for Students: June 1

Guidelines for Re-Opening for Students: June 1
Yesterday, Governor Parson announced Missouri will continue in Phase 1 of the Show Me Recovery Plan through June 15. This was supposed to expire on May 31, but has been extended for an additional two weeks.
What does this mean for Helias?
1. Helias will continue to operate with social distancing (6 ft of distance) with staff and students. We know this is a tremendous challenge, but we are learning every time we have a gathering. Please support these efforts. The work we do now will hopefully help us have a safe return in the fall.
2. Helias will open the weight room and camps beginning on June 1 provided each program can ensure social distancing of students. If we cannot ensure social distancing, then we will postpone these events until there are revised guidelines. Please know this is a fluid, ever-changing situation. We are doing our best to host as many events as safely possible.
Here are the guidelines for Helias to safely reopen for athletics/activities beginning June 1st.
Please know these guidelines are for Phase 1, and could or could not be modified after June 15. We are actively planning for the move to Phase 2, but have not been provided with those guidelines yet.
3. If we cannot ensure social distancing, masks will be worn. For example, if someone HAD to work one on one in a close setting with an individual, masks would be required.
4. Our current plans for graduation will remain in place. Our date of graduation is after June 15, which means these plans could also change.
Please continue to help us provide a safe environment for staff and students. We do ask for your prayers for prudent decision making for our school community. Please pray for wisdom and guidance for our Helias community as we all strive to do our part.  We know it is difficult. We believe the best way to “Build a Community of Saints and Scholars for Christ” is in person. The formation of students in body, mind, and spirit is paramount in our decision making while also ensuring we can do so safely. Thank you for your continued prayers, patience and cooperation.
