The Blue Angel Weekly

Dear PCA Families,
On Wednesday, students will have a dress down day to help support the OLSS Senior Care Baskets. See details below.
Our 5th and 8th graders will be taking the ACRE (Assessment of Children/Youth Religious Education) test on Thursday morning.
We are looking forward to seeing you all at the Angel Ball on Friday evening at the Sawgrass Marriott! It is going to be a great fundraising party! We hope you will join us! Tickets are still available! Please see below for details.
"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." - Mark 11:24
Dress Down Day to Support OLSS Senior Care Packages!
There is not a theme/color to follow for this dress down, but ALL DRESS DOWN DAY RULES APPLY. For your information, here are the rules as stated in the Parent/Student Handbook:
For dress down days, jeans are acceptable but cannot have any rips or tears. No hats or flipflops are to be worn to school. No tank top style tops are allowed. Only shorts that are Bermuda or Capri in length are permitted. Shoulders, midriffs, and backs must be covered (no cut-out style clothes) at all times. Leggings are not allowed unless the shirt reaches the mid-thigh area. Clothing should not have any messages or words that would be considered inappropriate for a Catholic school.

Anyone who tests positive must stay at home for 5 full days before returning to school on Day 6, provided that there has been no fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines and that other symptoms are improving. (Please note that the first day of symptoms is considered Day 0.)
Siblings of positive cases may continue coming to school as long as they are not exhibiting ANY symptoms. Please use good judgment when sending siblings to school based on the amount of exposure they have had with the positive sibling.
