Since 1925 St. Bernard’s Catholic School (Preschool - 5th Grade) has combined great teachers, a low student to teacher ratio, and the application of technology to provide students with optimal learning opportunities and a desire to achieve academic excellence. St. Bernard’s School focuses on developing the whole person. It is our belief that the school is an extension of the family, with the first teacher being our student’s parents. We always welcome new enrollments and are looking to grow our St. Bernard’s family. We hope you are able to find the information that you need on this website. Feel free to contact the St. Bernard’s School Office directly for any additional information. We are at your service.

Sincerely Yours In Christ,

COVID-19 - Our Temporary Reality

On April 23rd, Gov. Tim Walz announced that Minnesota schools, including St. Bernard's School will be closed through the end of the school year on May 29, 2020.  Despite how desperately  we desire to gather together again, our best opportunity today to ensure the safety of our community and the continuity of learning for our students is to complete the school year online.  As well as the public school, St. Bernard's will not have distance learning classes on Friday, May 1, and Monday, May 4, so that we can plan for the rest of the year. 

We know that there is a strong yearning to remain connected to one another that increases with each passing day. We are working on additional opportunities for community connection, at least virtually, and will be announcing them soon. In addition, St. Bernard’s Church offers us a beautiful celebration of mass and they will continue to live stream Sundays at 9:00 AM on their Facebook site.

We have not yet decided in which form the PreK / Kindergarten and 5th grade graduations will take place on the dates for which they are currently scheduled, May 22 and May 28 respectively. We want to wait for further information from state and national health and government authorities on what regulations will be in place to provide us with additional clarity before making a decision on these events. We will announce our decision regarding both graduations by May 11.

We hope that by making the decision to remain in online mode for the remainder of the year and providing dates for announcing decisions about other key events and activities, we have lessened some of the uncertainty with which we are living right now. We continue to lean on our faith and trust that God’s loving presence is accompanying us all as we walk this path, and as a people of faith, we know that God is with us as we do.

We also want to take this moment to share this video which was created by Shelly Burkel and Beth Zerr. Please know that you are in our hearts!

We know that there is a strong yearning to remain connected to one another that increases with each passing day.
