Dear St. Anne Parents,


I wanted to give all our parents a sneak preview of our first Fundraiser of the year! Our SAPTO Board met this past week and came up with a date for our 5K Walk-a-thon for the '21-'22 school year! With the exception of last year, our 5K Walk-a-thon has always been held in the fall, usually in October. This year, we decided to give ourselves a little more planning time as well as time for the COVID virus to hopefully continue to wane..... The '21-'22 5K Walk-a-thon will take place on Friday, November 19. More details will be forthcoming, but we wanted everyone to look forward to this fun event. Mark your calendars!

FLU AND COLD SEASON

With the flu and cold season starting, I wanted to thank everyone for your conscientious attitude in keeping your child home if s/he is not feeling well. We want to keep your child and every child from getting sick. We appreciate everyone's thoughtfulness about not sending your child to school if s/he is not feeling well. AGAIN, PLEASE REMEMBER....if your child has ANY of the COVID symptoms, DO NOT send your child to school. Per the San Francisco Department of Public Health's guidelines, you should have your child tested if your child exhibits COVID symptoms. Also you might want to call your child's doctor for any additional concerns you might have. THANKS FOR YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT!

PARENT HELP NEEDED!!

I need a parent who can help us replace a 4 foot florescent fixture in a hallway. I know you are out there or someone in your family is reading this and thinks...." My (fill in the blank) can do this for the school. Let me ask (fill in the blank) to call Mr. White or email him to let him know that (fill in the blank) can do it for him!"

I want to thank (fill in the blank) even before s/he calls to offer to help us! Thanks!

DO YOU WANT YOUR CHILD TO BE SAFE?

For EVERYONE'S SAFETY, please follow these simple procedures:.


  • At no time are parents to leave their cars double-parked and unattended!!
  • Please DO NOT drop-off children and have them walk across the street. Use the crosswalk at Funston Avenue and Irving Street. Our crossing guard, Moon, is a lovely person and works very hard to ensure the safety of all our students!!!!

  • ANOTHER IMPORTANT REMINDER: Please keep your car moving forward towards the entrance yard gate. Once at the gate, your child should exit the car on the school yard side quickly. Do not back up all the cars waiting behind you by stopping and getting out of your car and then getting your child out of the car, etc. etc. Doing this backs up all the parents who are waiting in the car line behind you! Keep the line moving forward.
