Celebrating St. Michael's

Thank you to all who joined us on Thursday as we celebrated 60 years of St. Michael's! Headmaster Michael Turner was pleased to announce at a special groundbreaking ceremony that evening that the new Lower School building will be named the Edgar O. Hubbard Lower School in honor of Mr. Hubbard's legacy of leadership and passion for our School.

Columbus Day Holiday

St. Michael's will be closed on Monday, October 9 for the Columbus Day holiday. Enjoy the day!

We Ask Your Help with Carpool Safety

  • Our cardinal rule is... "Kids and Cars: only one moves at a time."
  • We ask that dogs not be brought to carpool areas.
  • NO DRIVER should be using a phone while moving through carline. Thank you for modeling good behavior for students.
  • PLEASE have the bright yellow nameplates on your passenger side SUN VISOR rather than on the dashboard. Call the School If you need extras. Rubber bands for securing the nameplates are available upon request.
  • Having your passenger side window cracked/open helps with communication.
  • At the Middle School, please pull to your assigned cone and stay there until released by the faculty-staff member coordinating carpool.
