Family Newsletter

October 13, 2021

Dear St. Anne Parents,


If you do nothing else, please read the articles below about our upcoming Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences. All students will be bringing home a Parent-Student-Teacher Conference Form asking you to select some possible dates for your child(ren)'s conference(s). The form is due back this Friday. Thank you.

Our first quarter will end on Friday, Oct. 22. Report cards will be going on with all students on Thursday, Oct. 28. With this month's Halloween Festivities taking place on Friday, Oct. 29, we will not be hosting for parents our usual Honor Roll/SLE Assembly. We will, however, resume inviting parents to attend our second quarter Honor Roll/SLE Assembly. Speaking for all our teachers and staff, it has been so wonderful having all our students back in person. We have an outstanding group of students and seeing them interact with each other helps everyone return to a "normal" daily interaction and education. We look forward to an even stronger second quarter!!

Thank you to those who have already sent in your proof of full vaccination already. We need to have proof of full vaccination or virus -free in order for parents to participate in our conferences this year.

Parents not vaccinated will need to provide a COVID test within the last 3 days, but no more than5 days prior to any scheduled conference/event.

5K Walk-a-thon November 19

We are well underway for this year's walk-a-thon and are grateful to families who have already pledged and/or donated through PledgeStar - we have raised over $12,300! Let’s keep this going and continue to add friends and family contacts into PledgeStar. Receive a free dress pass for entering 10 or more contacts into your child’s profile. Reminder - the info packet is available for download from the St. Anne’s website (stanne.com/2021/03/5k-walk-2021) and below. You will need to complete your child’s permission form on the last page of this packet.


We are still needing chaperones for K, 4th and 5th grades and crossing guards for grades K-7 (grades 1 & 8 are full). Please consider volunteering to ensure the safety for these classes with the appropriate adult to child ratio, and especially when each class crosses the street. Crossing guards get to wear a cool neon orange vest and sport a stop sign to direct your designated class while crossing the street. All volunteers receive a commemorative t-shirt so sign up today through SignUp.com (link is at the bottom of St. Anne’s website).


Key dates:

This Friday, Oct 15 - T-shirt designs due, submit online or hard copy to the school office.

FLU AND COLD SEASON

With the flu and cold season starting, I wanted to thank everyone for your conscientious attitude in keeping your child home if s/he is not feeling well. We want to keep your child and every child from getting sick. We appreciate everyone's thoughtfulness about not sending your child to school if s/he is not feeling well. AGAIN, PLEASE REMEMBER....if your child has ANY of the COVID symptoms, DO NOT send your child to school. Per the San Francisco Department of Public Health's guidelines, you should have your child tested if your child exhibits COVID symptoms. Also you might want to call your child's doctor for any additional concerns you might have. THANKS FOR YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT!
