Dear SJS families,
We have a lot of important information to share, please read this entire email:
Materials Pickup & Drop-off
*Excluded from this is Kindergarten and 4th grade who already have everything they need*
As noted in yesterday’s email – a parent or guardian should come by the school to pick up a packet and/or books at the following times:
**TODAY – Monday, March 16th from 3:00pm – 6:00pm
**Tuesday, March 17th from 9:00am – 12:00pm
All 8th grade students must turn in their research paper at one of these two drop off dates.
For anyone who was Absent on Thursday, these are the pickup times for your child’s materials as well.
Pickup/drop-off of assignments will be in the BREEZEWAY LOT only. Please do not buzz into the school.
As of right now, the school will answer phone calls M-F between the hours of 9am and 1pm. No parents, students, or teachers will be allowed in the school.
Teaching will continue via distance learning. All students are expected to keep up with their studies.
For grades K-4, your child’s teachers will email you daily as to what work should be completed and also will give you information about some online platforms that may assist your child in enrichment activities.
For grades 5-8, your child’s teachers will post assignments daily in Google Classroom. All students will have daily required assignments that must be turned in by a time that will be communicated from your child’s teacher. Please note, the Google Classroom servers are going to be exceptionally busy. If your child gets a note that the server is unavailable, they should shut down and wait a bit (particularly today).
If your child is ill during these days and unable to complete their daily lessons, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can record their absence. Teachers will be notified of their absence and know not to expect the work that day. However, the work will need to be completed and handed in asap.
Other Important Notes:
*This plan is in place until March 27th and we will communicate as we have information to share.
*For activities that we needed to cancel (basketball banquet, father/son event) we will return your money when students come back to school. We are still deciding if the Soiree will be held at a later date.
*During this time that teachers and students are not allowed in the building, the entire school will be disinfected and cleaned.
*We still have a deadline to order yearbooks of Friday, March 20th. If possible, please order online. The website and school code are on the order form your child brought home last week. Online orders are being accepted until April 6th. If you are unable to order online, please bring your order form to school during today or tomorrow’s breezeway pickup times. Or, mail it to the school so it will be here by Friday. Questions can be directed to our volunteer yearbook coordinator Mrs. St. Jean at email@example.com
*Book & Art Club will be rescheduled for when we return
*The soccer season is on hold for now
*At this time, there has not been a change to our 8th grade graduation date, but we will update you immediately if this changes. Our Pre-K and Kindergarten “Stepping Up” celebrations will have a final date determined once we return back to school.
Please take every precaution possible to stay healthy and safe during this difficult time. I am praying for all our students and families and appreciate the sacrifices everyone is making to keep our students moving forward.
May the peace of Our Lord be with you.
