President's Press: Lobby Opening Ushers in New Era

Thursday, March 2, 2023


We are delighted to begin using our new lobby, main office, attendance desk, and back gates, compliments of the many Ring the Bells Capital Campaign donors who have sacrificed to make these necessary upgrades a reality. If you or your family contributed toward this effort, we thank you! The new lobby is named in loving memory of long-time St. Pius X father, Bob Buechner. Bob’s five sons and two daughters all graduated from the school, and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren have attended or are attending Pius now.

The new lobby and back gate upgrades make for a more secure campus, allowing us to better serve our students and families. Please note the new procedures related to visiting campus.

  • During the school day, all visitors should park in the front circle and use the intercom system by the new main office doors to gain access to the school.
  • All daytime visitors are to exit through the new lobby. No one should exit through the front gates.
  • Parents who have planned to check students out during the school day should enter the new lobby and wait in the main office for their student.
  • When exiting campus after normal office hours and the front or back gates are locked, guests should simply wave their hand in front of the red motion sensor located next to each gate. The gate will automatically open. 

While this will take some time for everyone to get used to, we are excited about a more secure and functional campus.
