St. Mary's Lions Letter
August 29, 2023
Dear St. Mary's Family,
And we are off to a great start! Once again, thank you for your help in making the first weeks of the 2023-2024 school year great! From the car rider line to parent/teacher communication, your feedback has been invaluable. We are looking forward to Open House on Thursday, August 31st @ 6:00 PM. Many of our club sponsors will be available for questions and answers and our PTO board will hold its first official meeting. Afterwards, parents are welcome to tour the school and your child's classroom. We look forward to seeing you there!
TUESDAY FOLDER FORMS
Please look for the following forms in today's Tuesday folder and return by September 1st:
- Student Emergency Information Card (all students)
- Media Release Form (all students)
- Individualized Health Care Plan for Students with Food & Life Threatening Allergies
- Epinephrine Auto-Injector Agreement
7:45 AM ARRIVAL and TARDIES
As a reminder, please remember that your child is tardy if they arrive after 7:45 AM. We begin our day with Morning Devotion in the church promptly at 7:45. It is important that all of our students are in attendance at this time. Extenuating circumstances happen; however please
know that if your child is tardy, you must park in the big parking lot (not the car rider line near gate) and walk your child into the office to sign them in. The safety of our students is priority and all cars must be parked in marked spaces. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
IRIS ALERT SYSTEM - TEST PERFORMED YESTERDAY
If you did not receive an email, text and voice message yesterday, please call the office and give your emergency contact information. We will continue to use the IRIS (Immediate Response Information System) for weather alerts, emergency situations, etc.
