Divine Providence School

Home and School Connection - September 6, 2019

First Late Start Next Week!

On Tuesday, September 10, 2019 we will have our first late start of the school year. Before care is still available (for a charge) if needed. School will start one hour later than usual, at 9 AM. Our next late start day is October 8, 2019.

Curriculum Night!

September 11, 2019 from 6:30 until 8:00 we welcome you to come to visit your child's classroom and hear from your child's teacher the great year they have planned ahead. We hope you can attend!

Did you hear that?

Next week during our morning announcements, we are going to listen to passages in the Bible about listening to God. We will listen about the prophet Jeremiah. He reminded the people of Israel to listen for God's voice and to remember the covenant God made Israel to love and protect them. Samuel was also a great leader and prophet. When he heard God's voice, he didn't know it was him. He teaches us the sometimes God's voice is very loud and other times can be very quiet. Family conversation starter.... Does praying, which is talking and listening to God, make you feel hopeful when you are troubled?

Drop off and Pick up

Thank you for you patience and understanding with the drop off and pick up procedures this school year. It seems that it has become a much smoother process. A few important reminders:

Students walking MUST have a walker pass. Please make sure your child keeps this in a safe place. If they do not have their pass, they may not walk home. Also, if they are taking a friend home with them, the friend must also have a walker pass to be dismissed with walkers.

If you are picking your child(ren) up outside, you must have the family sign provided to you at the beginning of the year. This includes if you pick up at the door or if you are in a car.

If you are picking up from a car, we need children to enter vehicles from the front area of the school. While we may call a line of students to come out, we don't want them going in-between cars that a re further in line.

Please watch traffic when leaving the drive through lane. This is especially important if you are turning after your children enter the car.


Your cooperation is greatly appreciated for the safety of our children!
