Watch Athletic Contests on NHSF NETWORK

A reminder that this fall you will be able to watch all St. Paul games taking place on McPhee Field or in the Rev. Brian Monnerat Gymnasium streaming live on the NHSF Network https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/.

St. Paul is still working with NFHS network tech support regarding the scoreboard function but otherwise, the system is fully operational!  So exciting!

Sign in and choose your subscription status. Based on the fluid nature of COVID-19, we suggest just signing up for the one month at a time subscription. Once you have signed up you need to search for St. Paul Catholic High School and you will see our scheduled games listed by sport.

Additional schools that have the NFHS system in their gyms and stadium field are WATERTOWN and TORRINGTON High.

We are hopeful many parents, grandparents, and extended family members find this alternative option beneficial.

5.21.20 *NEW* –  Attention – Important Information regarding SP spring web-stores (Baseball & Golf).  See the statement below from PTS regarding the continued delay of our team stores as a result of the Coronavirus.

We are still not fully operational at this time. We are doing our very best, however, some of the delay is due to the vendors not being able to ship us the product within the normal time frame. After looking into both of these orders, it looks as though both stores are due to be produced this week. However, we only have 1 person going in to ship twice a week given that production is still playing catch up with the time missed. I am hopeful that these orders will ship by the latest next week. I hope this is helpful. I truly appreciate your patience. Please let me know if there is anything more I can do to help.  Thank you, Nicole Tardiff – 978-688-3300 ext. 157

CIAC Spring Sports Update Regarding COVID – 19
Release from CIAC – March 18, 2020
CHESHIRE, Conn. – Following an online meeting with nearly 70 school, athletic and governmental leaders CIAC reached a consensus that canceling the entirety of the spring sports season is premature at this time. There is a strong desire to provide student athletes some spring athletic experience if possible. Any plan for spring sports will need to adhere to the guidelines from the Governor’s office, Department of Education and health experts regarding the potential reopening of schools to establish a specific time frame.
“These are unprecedented challenges for our schools, and it is of the utmost importance that we provide answers and a structure to support our membership and maintain the possibility of a spring sports experience for our student-athletes,” CAS-CIAC Executive Director Glenn Lungarini stated. “CIAC understands the value of providing students a spring sports experience, if possible. However, the health and safety of our communities must remain at the center of our decision making.”
The online meeting discussion emphasized that while student-athletes may want to begin preparations for a potential season that respecting the recommendations for social distancing and avoiding group activities prior to the approved time will aid in keeping athletes safe and allow for the season to begin in a timely manner if approved. The uncertainty of the timeline for school openings requires the understanding that any plans to begin spring sports will be fluid and should have the ability to reflect the different needs of different school communities.

#BeTheLight 4.20.20 – 5.20.20 – CLICK HERE

“Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:5)

To honor all our students but especially the Class of 2020, St. Paul will join the #BeTheLight movement and turn on our
McPhee Field Stadium lights at 20:20 (that’s military time or 8:20 pm) for 20 minutes and 20 seconds every weeknight
until May 20. CLICK HERE to watch the #BeTheLight video!

Five seniors who carpooled each day to school, visited the school last week to see the lights on the athletic fields. They captured this social distancing photo on the day the governor announced the remaining days of their 2020 school year would continue to be distance learning and they wouldn’t be back to the physical school building with their teachers and friends.
