Parent Update

September 9, 2021

Dear Parents,

Looking for fun family activities? See the Spirit Night and Family Trivia Night information below. Hope to see you there!

We have noon dismissal on Friday, September 24 for all students. No lunch will be served. Students attending Day Care need to bring a sack lunch.

If your child is absent, please call or email to let us know the reason. We need to know what the symptoms are if they are sick. Thank you for you help with this.

We discourage parents from dropping off fast food lunches for children. It disrupts the classroom and leaves an "aroma" in the office. In the future, you may leave the lunch outside on a table for your child to retrieve. Remind them in the morning to come pick it up. We will not call the classroom to remind students about a lunch.

Remember to wash your hands and wear your masks. Vaccinations are recommended and protect everyone.

God Bless,

Mrs. Ferguson

Trivia Night

Friday, Sep. 10th, 7pm

Under the St. Dorothy Parish Tent

Join us with the whole family for a night of trivia! Tickets are $20 per household or team of four. Purchase tickets in the Parish Office. All proceeds will benefit St. Dorothy Catholic School and Life Teen.

Flier with details is below.

New Pick Up Procedures

We hope you have noticed a difference in our dismissal pick up. There are now two lanes to help ease traffic. When entering from the northern entrance on Valley Center you will see cones marking two separate lanes. Someone will be in the parking lot helping to direct you. Do not arrive before 2:45 to avoid creating a line of cars in the street.

This is a great volunteer hour opportunity! We will need at least two parents from 2:30-3:15 to help direct traffic. You will receive the full hour, and will be able to wear a stylish, yellow vest. Please contact Mrs. Jasso in the office if you would like to help and be a founding member of our Parent Safety Brigade.

All parents can help by printing out the dashboard placard, writing your student(s)' last name and grade(s) and placing it on the passenger side dashboard. This will help staff call out for students quickly.

If you have not comleted the consent form, please complete this Online Consent to allow your student to visit either Ms. Donna or Ms. Gabi. All sessions are done during school hours and are completely confidential.

PTO Uniform Store

If you are still missing some uniform pieces, our PTO uniform store is still fully stocked. Please contact Mrs. Alexanian at to request a uniform item.

Allergy Aware School

As an 'allergy aware' school our aim is to inform our community about the risk of allergies, with a focus on food allergies and also to provide a supportive environment in which children at risk of anaphylaxis can feel safe.

We would ask that all families refrain from sending any tree nut or ground nut products to school. Some of our students are highly sensitive to both.

There are many types of allergies that we are aware of in our student population. To maintain a safe environment, we are also asking that any treats sent in for special events must be store bought and all ingredients must be clearly labeled.

We want to thank you for your consideration in the health and well being of our Bruins.
