A Few Important Reminders:

  • Please make sure your child arrives between 12:50 and 1 pm for their afternoon cohorts.
  • All students in grades 1 - 8 MUST be picked up BY 3:15 pm. There is no afternoon extended care this year, so please make sure you are on time.
  • If your child has COVID symptoms, even if they do not have a fever, they must follow the protocol of staying out for 10 days or returning once symptoms have improved AND they have a negative COVID test. Please DO NOT send your child to school with symptoms. Also, please update the school if this is the case.
  • Please contact the school at office@holyrosarybilingual.org or call 253-272-7012 if your child will be out of school (or off of Zoom) for any reason. You can also copy the child's teacher on the email so they are aware and not expecting the child in class.
