Message from the Principal


Dear Parents,

St. Peter of Alcantara School will be OPEN on Wednesday, January 28. However, we will have a 2-Hour Delayed Start to the school day, because of the expected very icy road conditions following the blizzard storm on Tuesday. 

Please refer to our school web site and E-mail messages for any additional updates. 
We will endeavor to re-schedule Tuesday's postponed Catholic Schools Week events for later dates. Please be safe on the roads and while shoveling snow. 

My best regards to you & your families,
Mr. Robert Windorf, Principal

Rockville Centre—Ursuline Sister Joanne Callahan, Diocesan  Superintendent of Schools, is recognized as an official with authority to respond to Revenue Procedure

(75-50) which was published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin dated December 8, 1975.

In conformity with the IRS regulation, notice is hereby given that the schools of the Diocese of Rockville Centre admit students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools and that the schools do not discriminate on the basis of race in administration of their education policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Sister Joanne further explained that the very notion of racial discrimination is diametrically opposed to the concept of Christian communities that our schools strive to be.  She also pointed out that our Catholic schools have always welcomed and have been enriched by students from various ethnic groups.
