Welcome to SJNCS

A Message from Our Principal, Mr. Derbyshire

St. John Neumann School Community,

Thank you for helping to make this school year a success. We started the year not knowing what it would bring, and through your grace, prayers and patience, we not only completed the school year, but our community grew stronger together.

As we look to the 2021-2022 school year, I know you are anxiously waiting to hear our policies regarding masks and other CoVid precautions. The Diocese of Knoxville has not made a decision yet regarding masks or other precautions for the fall. As soon as a decision has been made we will share that information. 

For the summer, masks are not required for summer camp and are not required for visitors to the school.

As always, you and your family are in my prayers.

Bill Derbyshire
