Happy October to everyone! I can’t believe we have been in school for a month already. I wanted to remind everyone of some great items we have happening this month: Scrip Presto Pay contest, conferences, and Family Fun Night. Remember to check your email for updates about these events and more. I would also like to remind everyone that the cold weather is setting in. Please make sure students come to school with a warm coat so they can continue to enjoy playing outside for as long as the weather holds.
In other news, you may have noticed our very large and very fabulous new planters in the courtyard area where students line up. These planters will help keep this area clear of cars and provide some color. This last weekend the planters were placed and this week rocks and soil were added in preparation for plants that will be coming soon. We are so thankful to not only have something beautiful for our courtyard/outside meeting area but also a safe place for our students to gather before, during, and after school.
I hope everyone has a wonderful end to this first week of October.
September 18; full uniform day for pictures and for mass
Begins September 17
Policies and Procedures
Visitor badges: When visiting the school please sign in and out at the front office. Also, please pick up a visitor badge. We want to make sure all adults in the building can be easily identified and that the office is aware we have visitors. This assists us in evacuating the building during emergency situations and allows us to maintain a high level of safety and security for our students through out the day. If you see someone in the building who is not a staff member and is not wearing a visitor badge, please report it to the office immediately.
Doors: All doors to our buildings remain locked during the school day. This is to make sure that no one is admitted without permission. Please make sure to close all doors behind you when entering the building and do not admit anyone behind that is not known to you or is not clearly going to the office.
Pets on campus:
* Absolutely no dogs or pets are allowed in the school building
* No dogs or pets are allowed on the outdoor courtyard area (where we line up for morning prayer and flag salute and where we dismiss in the afternoon)
* Please also refrain from bringing dogs or pets into the “yellow cone” area that connects our school to the playground
* No dogs or pets on any part of our designated playground areas including big toys and basketball courts
AHERA: Attached is a letter that is sent out annually by the Archdiocese of Seattle. Federal regulations require that all schools send out this letter regarding AHERA information.
Thank you for a wonderful start to our second week and I look forward to our exciting events together in September.
