We are looking forward to a GREAT 1st day of School tomorrow – Thursday, September 2nd. A few reminders – particularly pertaining to our K-8 families:
*All K-8 students should be in their regular uniforms tomorrow (no gym uniform on the 1st day).
*Remember, our school day for K-8 students starts at 7:50am this year!
*Parents: please remember to park in the Saint James Church parking lot or designated areas if you are not using the drop-and-go line. Please do NOT park in any of the school lots or the Pre-K staff parking area (behind the blue house).
*Entrances for students:
Front door – Mrs. Phelan’s 3rd Grade Class & Both 4th Grade Classes;
Breezeway – Grades 1, 2, & 6;
North Door Main Blacktop – Grades 7 & 8;
South Door Main Blacktop – Mrs. Moran’s 3rd Grade, Kindergarten & Grade 5.
*Please arrive between 7:30am and 7:50am – allow yourself plenty of time to park, particularly on the first day when it will be extremely busy around the school. After 7:50am, your student is tardy and must come in through the front door/check in at the main office.
*Dismissal is at 12:05pm on the first day – no lunch will be served.
*After-care/before-care is available on the first day of school. After-care students will need to bring lunch from home. You must be registered for the program for the 2021-2022 school year to have your child attend. Please email Ms. Jean (email@example.com) with any questions.
*All students should bring a snack and bottle of water on the first day of school. Per school policy, please limit snacks to fruits and/or vegetables or a healthy protein only – cheese/yogurt. A bottle of water should be packed with the snack every day.
*Please check your child’s temperature and assess their overall health before leaving the house every day.
*Students must have an acceptable mask attached to a lanyard when they arrive with a back up mask (or two!) in their backpack.
Please allow extra time in your day for drop-off and pick-up so you are not rushing in at the last minute. Extra staff will be on hand at both drop-off and pick-up to help guide you to where you need to be.
