Family Newsletter

October 6, 2021

Dear St. Anne Parents,


Here we are in October with the first quarter's grades ending Oct. 22, and planning our Halloween Festivities for Oct. 29, and also our Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences for Nov. 2-5. School photos will be taken on Oct. 13 for our students in Preschool - grade 8. Every family should be receiving an email from our school picture company....Mugsyclicks....noting how you can get on to their site to view and order pictures. This is the same company we used last year for school pictures. Viewing of pictures and ordering are all done on-line directly with the company. Each family should have its own log in information so that you can view your child's poses and choose one to order if you wish. Class/group photos will be taken in the spring, so there WILL NOT be a class or group photo offered with this photo shoot.


Every family should have received an email earlier today requesting proof of vaccination. Please send it in by next week.

FLU AND COLD SEASON

With the flu and cold season starting, I wanted to thank everyone for your conscientious attitude in keeping your child home if s/he is not feeling well. We want to keep your child and every child from getting sick. We appreciate everyone's thoughtfulness about not sending your child to school if s/he is not feeling well. AGAIN, PLEASE REMEMBER....if your child has ANY of the COVID symptoms, DO NOT send your child to school. Per the San Francisco Department of Public Health's guidelines, you should have your child tested if your child exhibits COVID symptoms. Also you might want to call your child's doctor for any additional concerns you might have. THANKS FOR YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT!

IN-PERSON AND ZOOM PARENT TOURS THIS YEAR!

Our parent tours for parents considering placing their child/children here for the 2022-2023 school year began today. Our next Parent Tour will take place tomorrow, September 30. I am offering both in-person as well as Zoom Parent Tours to interested families this year. The dates of both types of tours can be found on our school's website as well as the flier. Interested families should contact the school office. If you know of a family member or have friends looking for a warm family oriented school, please share the dates for them to visit and tour our school.
