The Blue Angel Weekly

October 31, 2022

Dear PCA Families,

We hope you all enjoyed the long weekend! Our second graders had their Reconciliation retreat this weekend. Please continue to keep them in your prayers as they make their sacraments this school year.

Afternoon Carpool

Please help us to expedite afternoon carline!

Middle School parents, your children are in class until 3:05 and then they return to homeroom. Please plan to pick them up no earlier than 3:10. Our holding area is filling up by 2:55 with middle school parents who have arrived too early. If you come for your children prior to 3:10, we will need to have you circle around the line again. Thank you for your cooperation!

Parents of students in grades 3-5, your children are not dismissed until 2:55. Please plan to pick them up no earlier than that. If you arrive prior to 2:55 for a 3rd-5th grade student, you will be asked to circle around the lot again.

Finally, if your child is at Angels After Hours, and you are coming to regular pick-up, please designate that in the PikMyKid app.

Thank you for your help in getting our students dismissed promptly and safely.

Middle School End-of the-Year Trip Update

Due to a huge price difference in buses, the end-of-the-year middle school field trips have been changed to April 27th.


Angel Ball

The Angel Ball date has been changed to Friday, March 24 due to a scheduling conflict with a church event.

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.
