ClassTag - Please Sign Up!

Teachers have sent home information about ClassTag. Please make sure you have signed up with each of your children's classrooms, or you will miss important news.


ClassTag serves two communication purposes:


1) Teachers can pin announcements, newsletters, reminder and even class photos to keep you in the loop!

2) School Info Alerts are shared in “quick bits” to alert parents to specific info such as reminders, events, important alerts, etc.


You should set your ClassTag account so that you receive an “alert” on your phone much like a text pops up. Your own phone settings control set sound. ClassTag is only used by teachers and school staff. All parents should have an activation code. If you do not receive one, please contact your child’s teacher. Every student should have a parent/guardian connected to their ClassTag classroom - ideally all guardians would be connected in case we need to push out an alert.

My Child is Ill. What Do I Do?

Allergies or COVID? Stomach bug or COVID? It can be hard to decipher what ailment might be affecting your child. We have created some graphics and flowcharts to help you navigate what steps to take when your child or someone in your household is feeling unwell.Please report concerns or questions to Mrs. Goldsworthy and she will consult with our response team - Mrs. O'Connell and Mrs. Rischard.


Screening Questions and Carpool

Please remember to have your questions answered and ready to show on your phone. We also check those daily - please make sure to answer each day and not show us a previous date's result. bit.ly/FamilyDailyQs

Absences

Please use the Absentee Form to report absences AND email your child’s teacher/house homeroom. It is important to communicate why your child is missing school with the teacher and document through the Google form.

Library Books

Although the school library is not yet open, books are due! Many students took book homes before our extended Spring Break, and others were able to take advantage of extra book check out offered back in May. Please check bookshelves, under beds, in cars, and other hiding places around the house for books with the St. Eugene Library barcode on the front cover. Mrs. Hattaway would love to have all the books back in the library and ready for students to check out soon! Students may drop off books in bin in the circulation desk. Books will be quarantined for at least 48 hours before recirculating as recommended by the American Library Association.


If a book has been damaged beyond repair or lost, please contact Mrs. Hattaway to request replacement cost. Please do not buy a replacement copy on your own as there is a cost to processing and preparing a book for circulation. Mrs. Hattaway would almost always prefer to have the original book back whenever possible.

Please Pray For...

Please pray for the grandfather of Sarah, Charlotte & William Elder who is in the hospital fighting an illness. | Please pray for Mrs. Lupp's uncle, Dewayne Stewart, who is in the hospital on a ventilator.

His condition is serious. | Pray for all those who have been affected by Covid-19, whether by sickness, loss of job, isolation, or loneliness, etc. May all find strength, comfort and healing in this difficult time. | Pray for our staff who have been putting in many extra hours to prepare for the upcoming school year. Please pray for students and their families. May God grant us all patience and wisdom as we navigate a very different school year. Help us put our faith first and give grace to all.
