An Update from the Gift Card Desk – May 20, 2020
With the recent loosening of restrictions for retail sales, the PCS Gift Card desk will be opening on a limited basis with curbside pick up. This will be for a short term until we can get more safety measures in place inside. This is how it will work to start:
- On Monday, May 18th we will be available from 9-11am for phone in orders that can be paid by credit card only. Please call 715-341-2445. If we have your card on file, you have the option to email your order to email@example.com. We can only accept payment by credit card at this time so we will not be able to sell Walmart, Amazon or Target. These orders will be ready for curbside pick up on Wednesday, May 20th from 7:30am-12pm.
- Due to the Memorial Day holiday, on Tuesday, May 26th we will be available from 7:30am-3pm for phone in or online orders paid by credit card only. These orders will be ready for curbside pick up on Wednesday, May 27th from 7:30am-12:30pm. Please call 715.341.2445 when you arrive and we’ll bring your cards out to you curbside.
- Beginning Monday, June 1st, we will continue to be available for gift card orders every Monday from 7:30am-3pm and curbside pick up every Wednesday from 7:30am-12:30pm until further notice. Please call 715.341.2445 when you arrive for pick up and we’ll bring your cards out to you curbside.
We look to continue to expand our schedule as soon as it is safe to do so. Please remember that your family fee will be reduced for the next school year based on when we reopen so you can expect more information on that shortly. Until then, stay happy and healthy. We thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you soon.

On Monday, April 27 the Pacelli Catholic Schools Tim Copps Early Childhood Center (ECC) will be reopening to families currently enrolled. Due to the guidelines surrounding childcare centers per the Governor’s order, the ECC is limited to less than 50 children and 10 staff. As a result, available childcare spots will be prioritized for health care and other essential workers. For more information, contact ECC director Jennifer Stroup at firstname.lastname@example.org.
April 17, 2020
As you have probably heard, yesterday Governor Evers announced the extension of the “Safer at Home” order, including the closure of schools and activities for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. This is not the way any of us hoped the year would end, but we must remember that the safety of our students is what is most important.
Our teachers will continue to provide eLearning to students throughout the rest of the year. I want to commend our teachers on the job they are doing. This is an entire new way of instruction, and teachers have been working very hard. Many people from various parts of the country have shared with me the lack of technology and education their children are getting. I am very happy this is not the case for us. I am also very proud of you, our parents. This is a hard time, working from home, caring for and helping your children learn. Thank you for all the extra time and energy you are putting into this process.
There are many things that we will need to determine as we move through the next several weeks.
- How do we handle milestone events, like graduation?
- How do we collect technology devices and other materials and how do parents and students collect personal items?
- Perhaps, most importantly, how do we help to provide our students some closure during this strange time?
I’m sure you have many more questions too. Please continue to be patient with us as we work on the best possible solutions for our students. Lastly, please remember to do everything you can to keep safe and healthy. Eventually, things will become more normal, or at least a new normal. We will all get there.
I expect to be communicating with you soon as we continue to navigate the best path forward. Have a relaxing weekend. The warmer weather should help. We will continue to keep you all in our prayers.
