SAVE THE PARENTAL NOTICE OF ABORTION LAW!

State lawmakers are meeting on October 19 and they are considering Repealing the Parental Notice of Abortion Act. We must act to prevent this! 72% of all Illinois voters agree that parents

or an adult guardian should be informed if their child is seeking an abortion, yet the Illinois General Assembly continues to threaten the repeal of Illinois' Parental Notice of Abortion law.

Please join us in contacting your state legislators to support our God-given right to support and protect our children. Go to www.ilcatholic.org to read the Illinois bishops letter and to find out how to contact your state legislator to defeat this bill. And, please ask another family member or friend to help join the effort to defeat this bill.

Masks

Just a reminder that masks are required to be worn by all of our students and staff. They need to be ONE solid color. Masks must be worn covering the nose and the mouth. Most of our students are doing a great job and don't even mind wearing them! Some students, however, are struggling with this more. It tends to be our middle school school students more than others. For this reason, a student that is not wearing their mask properly will be given an out of uniform slip each time they are not properly wearing their mask. Three slips and they will receive a detention. Detentions will be assigned and will take place after school.


Please see below from the CDC on proper face masks!

Please send your child to school EACH DAY with 2 clean and well fitting face masks
