Good Evening!

Tomorrow is the beginning of a brand new school year!  The staff and I are so excited to welcome students to our “new” building!


One of the big changes is the newly blacktopped parking lot.  It is scheduled to be striped tomorrow late afternoon.  This means that there are no parking spots on the new section; however, cones have been set up to indicate where the parking spots align with the spots marked in the older section.  We have also set up cones to mark off the carpool line.

Staff will park in the sections SOUTH of the cone line, leaving the north part for drop off and dismissal.  If you plan to drop your child off, please follow the CARPOOL PROCEDURES.  Any parents who would like to park and walk your child in, please park in the rows South of the cones closest to the school.  Please be very careful when crossing traffic.


Parent Packets were handed out at the Eat N Greet on Saturday.  If you did not pick up your packet, please do so tomorrow at drop off or arrive a few minutes early for pick up.  The packets contain a lot of important information, including your NEW 2017-18 Carpool tag.  Please be sure to display this tag from your rear view mirror to help make carpool flow more smoothly.  There are also several other important items, some of which need to be signed and returned to us.


2017-18 Uniform policy is found HERE.  We will have mass for grades 1-8 at 8:45am tomorrow morning.  Everyone is invited to attend and worship with us!


Please do NOT allow your child to bring a cell phone, iPad, toys, or other such personal items to school.  These cause distractions and could be lost or broken.  Children will not be allowed to play with or use these items during school or Extended Day Ministry (EDM).  Thank you for your cooperation!


Job Opportunity:  We are still looking for additional staff for our EDM.  Please pass this information on if you know of any interested person:   http://saintsusannaschool.com/st-susanna-school-job-opportunities/


The 2017-18 Student and Parent Handbook is posted online.  Please access HERE for updated information and expectations.  Working together will ensure a great year!


A “new” free or reduced lunch application must be filled out, signed and turned in no later than August 25, 2017, in order for your student(s) to be eligible for free or reduced lunch for the 2017-2018 school year.   If you were approved for free or reduced lunch for 2016-2017, you must fill out a new application to be eligible for the 2017-2018 school year. Link to application is HERE or you may request a hard copy from Ms. Crews (dcrews@saintsusanna.com)

Again, I cannot wait to see everyone tomorrow!  Have a wonderful first day!

God bless,

Michele
