The Borromeo Bulletin #37

Thoughts from Dr. Voelkl...
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
We were able to participate in an online information session with the St. Charles County of Public Health today, in addition to receiving updating written guidelines and action steps. They have at this time designated St. Charles County as a "red zone" area which means that we are experiencing substantial spread within our community. Our current action steps are in line with what they have advised in regards to slowing the spread and limiting continuous quarantines. As previously mentioned the rules for quarantine vary drastically in masked vs. unmasked situations.
We will be talking further tomorrow to review our in school procedures in light of today's session.
A FEW UNIFORM REMINDERS
- EACH MONDAY WILL REMAIN SPIRIT WEAR DAYS! We hope that everyone continues to enjoy showing their Bobcat pride on Mondays by wearing their favorite SCB spirit wear with uniform bottoms (navy or khaki short or pants, gym shorts, SCB sweatpants, jumpers or skirts).
- ONLY uniform fleeces and / or sweaters can be worn on Tuesdays through Fridays. This DOES NOT INCLUDE sweatshirts purchased through the athletic association spirit shop.
- White, gray, black or navy socks may be worn. They may include a small logo.
- NO fake nails and /or alternative hair color should be worn. Boys hair should not extend below the collar of one's shirt.
- Belts should be worn with uniform shorts or pants beginning in THIRD GRADE.
- At this time we will again delay the requirement of a separate PE uniform and will adjust this policy if needed.
- STUDENTS MAY DRESS DOWN on their birthday or the next school day closest to their actual birthday. Summer birthdays will be announced and celebrated in the spring.

To: St. Charles Borromeo School Community
From: Food Service Consultants
Locally owned and operated.
Subject: Foodservice Program for 2021/2022
We are very excited and look forward to serving the St. Charles Borromeo School community again in the 2021/2022 school year. Please be assured we will continue to follow the CDC COVID-19 guidelines still in place.
A lunch account will be set up for each child/family this year. If you choose to participate, please make an initial deposit which will be credited to your child’s or family account. In typical times the meal card we use for your child will be kept by the homeroom teacher so that the card is not misplaced. To minimize contact we will not be taking cash at lunch. Any cash sent in will be deposited into your child’s, family’s account. Even if your child just purchases milk $5.00 put into their account would be great. The FACTS system records all deposits and purchases on your family’s account and tracks the balance daily. It will roll over from semester to semester and even year to year. If your child is graduating, the balance will be kept on your family card, or you may request a refund.
The initial check or deposit should be a minimum of $25.00 - $50.00, although we recommend that you do start with a little more. More funds can be added at any time by either sending in a check or going online and using the Pay Pal option. PayPal email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. The checks should be sent to the school office or given to the homeroom teacher, “attention cafeteria manager” and be made out to “Food Service Consultants”, or just “FSC”. To help us get started, we would appreciate receiving advance deposits before school starts. By doing so, we can have your child’s or family’s account set up and ready to use the first day of school. If not, please try and remember to send in the deposit during the first couple of days so we have enough time to get everyone in the system.
The menu will feature 2 main selections to choose from daily. They are the “Healthy Habits” hot lunch, or a cold lunch called “Grab & Go”. Your child will be able to select either of these menu items for their lunch that day. For the upper grades there will be a few ala carte menu items that will be made available for them to choose from as well. We will be participating in the Special Milk Program which allows us to offer milk for the students at a reduced price. The price for the 2021- 2022 school year is expected to be around $ .15 - $ .20 per carton.
We will be preparing a menu each month which will be posted on the school website. Portion sizes will be adjusted by class, especially for the older students. The pricing is as follows:
· All Grades - $4.00 with milk
· All Grades - $4.25 with 8 oz bottle water
· Extra Entrée - $1.50
. We encourage you to call with any questions that you might have or speak directly with our onsite manager, Patsy Fink, through school or Debbie Hill, District Supervisor at 314-569-3663 ext. 105.
