St. Patrick Catholic School
Weekly Bulletin-October 1st, 2021
Dear St. Pat’s Families,
September really flew by! We are happy to say that students have really settled into the routines of this school year. We continue to be thankful for our amazing staff here at St. Pats and their dedication to our students through all the changes in our school to keep students and staff safe. Our staff will continue to make learning fun, engaging and meaningful to each and everyone of our students. Parents, thank you for continuing to perform the Daily Health Checklist with your children. Also a friendly reminder to send students with a mask as this is still an expectation within the EICS division.
We will continue at our school to model and talk about our division theme “Called to More”. How as Christians we are called to be more kind, more understanding, more caring and how we can model more of how Jesus lived his life while on earth? We look forward to this next month here at St. Pats and all the exciting things that will come with it. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or just want to chat feel free to reach out.

Let’s get our fundraising going and show everyone how we can “try like Terry”!. Every little bit helps.
Our school goal is set to $5000. Let's see if we can blow it out of the water again this year.

Cross Country Running Meet
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:
“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.
“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.

It is very difficult to find a child once they have left the classroom at the end of the school day.
