Dear Helias Families,

During the winter of 2018 the Jefferson City Fire Department visited Helias Catholic to conduct a code assessment linked to the occupancy of our gym and fieldhouse, particularly when it comes to events that we host involving tables, chairs, and food service. The outcome of this assessment was the establishment of maximum occupancy table seating numbers for our gym and fieldhouse. We are now only allowed to seat a maximum of 573 persons at tables in the gym and 604 in the fieldhouse.

This will, unfortunately, affect the way the Foundation for the Benefit of Helias Catholic High School is able to celebrate Grandparents’ Day at our school again this year.

Due to the restrictions and guidelines set forth by the Jefferson City Fire Department, only the first 700 registrations will be accepted for the luncheon. This number limit will be firmly enforced in order to remain in compliance with the Fire Marshall. Please know, however, that while we will be limiting the number of those attending the luncheon, ALL grandparents of any currently enrolled Helias student will be welcome to join us for the Mass in the fieldhouse.

Invitations will be mailed to grandparents on Friday, October 4 , 2024. ALL reservations and payment (grandparents and students) must be made online at the same time via the Foundation website (www.heliasfoundation.org). We will open the Grandparent Day reservations portal on the Foundation website and begin accepting reservations along with full payment at 8:00 a.m. (not before) on Thursday, October 24, 2024 on a first come, first served basis. Once 700 grandparents and students have rsvp’d with payment in full the Grandparent Day RSVP portal will shut down automatically and we will not be able to accept any additional reservations. The Foundation will hand out luncheon tickets on the morning of Grandparents Day (Thursday, November 21, 2024) to the grandparents and students who were in the first 700 RSVP’s paid in full online.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter. Please know that we wish to make the Grandparents’ Day celebration a joyous and successful event, but our hands are tied in the matter of maximum seating. If you have any questions, please contact the Foundation office.
