We are giving out a large number of masks each week. Please send a mask/face covering or two with your child each day they come to school. If your child comes to school without a mask/face covering multiple days in a row we will be calling home for someone to bring them a mask/face covering.

Change in Bell Schedule- Recess Before Lunch

At St. Pat’s school we are going to be trying a reverse lunch which will be implemented starting Wednesday, October 13th. Last year half the school had the reverse lunch because of the staggered recesses. Feedback from teachers stated that it provided:


  • A calmer transition from lunch to classroom activities

  • Better behavior on the playground

  • More lunch eaten and less food wasted as they did not rush through lunch to get to the playground


Before eating lunch students will be dismissed for recess to play. We will be collecting feedback from teachers at the beginning of November to see how the transition is going for our students. If you have any questions about this please feel free to reach out to the school.

School Attendance

A reminder for all families that the AHS Daily Assessment needs to be completed and actioned each morning prior to coming to school. If your child is experiencing symptoms please choose:


  1. “Flu-like symptoms”

  2. “other illness or injury” If they are experiencing symptoms that you do not deem to be flu-like, or your child has a medical appointment.

  3. “parent excused.” If your child is experiencing no symptoms at all, please choose this. The parent excused absence should only be chosen if you are keeping your child home for a reason that does not pertain to a medical issue. (i.e dance competition)


The child’s attendance is a parent’s indication that this has been completed and the child is able to come to school. Once this messaging is sent out, we should not normally be following up with parents who select parent excused as an absence code. Asking for a medical note for a pre-existing condition should also only occur in rare cases in consultation with admin.


Our guideline for how we handle students with presenting symptoms during the day is the AHS Daily Assessment. If you have any questions, please speak to your admin.
