My Child is Ill. What Do I Do?
Allergies or COVID? Stomach bug or COVID? It can be hard to decipher what ailment might be affecting your child. We have created some graphics and flowcharts to help you navigate what steps to take when your child or someone in your household is feeling unwell. Please report concerns or questions about illness to Mrs. Goldsworthy at firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will consult with our response team - Mrs. O'Connell and Mrs. Rischard. ALWAYS fill out and submit the Absentee Form (or call Ms. Patrick in the office), then notify your child’s homeroom/house teacher each day of absence.
Please use the Absentee Form to report absences AND email your child’s teacher/house homeroom. It is important to communicate why your child is missing school with the teacher and document through the Google form. Please be meticulous in following directions if a child, household member, or close contact has recently tested positive for COVID or is awaiting results of a COVID test. NO ONE IN THE HOUSEHOLD MAY ENTER THE SCHOOL BUILDING if COVID exposure is positive OR in question. Mrs. Goldsworthy MUST clear your household for return to school in all cases where the possibility of COVID is involved. Please use email@example.com for correspondence regarding illness updates to Mrs. Goldsworthy.
School picture day(s) are coming up Sept. 22 and 23rd. Schedule to come. On their scheduled picture day, students may wear their school uniform or dress as they would for weekend mass. Envelopes to choose a photo package will go home the week before.

Mass at St. Eugene
ClassTag - Please Sign Up!
Teachers have sent home information about ClassTag. Please make sure you have signed up with each of your children's classrooms, or you will miss important news.
ClassTag serves two communication purposes:
1) Teachers can pin announcements, newsletters, reminder and even class photos to keep you in the loop!
2) School Info Alerts are shared in “quick bits” to alert parents to specific info such as reminders, events, important alerts, etc.
You should set your ClassTag account so that you receive an “alert” on your phone much like a text pops up. Your own phone settings control set sound. ClassTag is only used by teachers and school staff. All parents should have an activation code. If you do not receive one, please contact your child’s teacher. Every student should have a parent/guardian connected to their ClassTag classroom - ideally all guardians would be connected in case we need to push out an alert.
Screening Questions and Carpool
Please remember to have your questions answered DAILY and results ready to show on your phone. Students should be masked, on the passenger side for temp checks, and ready to go as soon as carpool teacher opens the door. bit.ly/FamilyDailyQs
If a book has been damaged beyond repair or lost, please contact Mrs. Hattaway to request replacement cost. Please do not buy a replacement copy on your own as there is a cost to processing and preparing a book for circulation. Mrs. Hattaway would almost always prefer to have the original book back whenever possible.

Please Pray For...
Please pray for the grandfather of Sarah, Charlotte & William Elder who is in the hospital fighting an illness. | Please pray for Mrs. Lupp's uncle, Dewayne Stewart, who is in the hospital on a ventilator. He was taken to the hospital for issues related to his liver disease and diabetes. His condition is serious. | Pray for all those who have been affected by Covid-19, whether by sickness, loss of job, isolation, or loneliness, etc. May all find strength, comfort and healing in this difficult time. | Pray for our staff who have been putting in many extra hours to prepare for the upcoming school year. Please pray for students and their families. May God grant us all patience and wisdom as we navigate a very different school year. Help us put our faith first and give grace to all.
